Personal Profile

Elizabeth advocates for clients both in and outside of the courtroom. She focuses her practice on all aspects of business disputes, including professional liability, employment, intellectual property, class action proceedings, and other complex commercial matters. When advising clients, she draws on her significant experience as a judicial clerk in both federal and state courts, which gave her a keen understanding of how to be persuasive through both written and oral advocacy. She also knows that favorable outcomes are best obtained through creative problem-solving and strategy, effective communication, and above all, hard work.

Elizabeth enjoys spending her free time with her husband and two daughters. She also fosters connections and strengthens the community by dedicating her time to volunteer activities and mentoring.
