“My experience with you has been very pleasant. I felt that you truly believed in my case and cared about what I was going through.

Elizabeth is an amazing, amazing person and an extraordinary attorney. She is so tenacious, she thinks of absolutely everything, and will fight and fight and fight for you as if you are her own family.
Elizabeth has been an unyielding force for my son. She dotted all the “I”s, every “T” and went to the ends of the earth to get for my son what he deserved. The compensation Elizabeth secured for him means I can continue to work and live, and that my son will be receiving all the medical care, therapies, and personal care he needs for the rest of his life.
Three other lawyers refused our case because they feared the circumstances surrounding my son’s injury might make it challenging to argue the case. Elizabeth immediately looked beyond the moment of injury and focused on what actually happened to my son. She took extensive time to talk to experts and doctors to discover delay in his care was a major factor in the ultimate severity of my son’s brain injury.
I am so grateful to Elizabeth. If you have been injured, hire her. She will fight for everything you think you deserve – and she will go beyond that to fighting for things you didn’t know you should have.”
“Elizabeth is so knowledgeable and thorough. She won a lawsuit against the hospital because they delayed my care. No one else would take my case. She was instrumental for me in my recovery from traumatic brain injury. She completely upsets her opponents in a nice way. She knows how to win!!!!!! She also knows what she is doing and she knows what the things that I wanted but couldn’t have because (at the time, I didn’t realize) would have jeopardized my case and she was firm with me and she was just trying to win the case not doing it for money but because she loves to win cases for her clients. Highly recommended for a better lawyer that you have currently!!!!!!!”
