I used Elizabeth for my second divorce. I wish I would have used her for my first. The first time I got divorce I used a popular divorce firm who's fees were astronomical and did not get a fair settlement. This time when I used Elizabeth, she fought for me and my children. Not only did I get a great settlement, but she found out that my husband had more assets then I knew about. Therefore, raising the amount that I got. Her legal fees were fair and well paid for. Would absolutely use her again, if I ever got married/divorced again.
She represented me in a divorce and custody action. I got a very good settlement. Very hard working, dedicated to her clients.
Elizabeth Harrington is interested in the size of her wallet, not her clients best interest. Keep an eye on the details of what she presents to you and realize that settlements are written with the intent of you having to use her again and again. She started off ok, but when my case became more involved and had to go to trial, she rushed through the process and missed many key points. Maybe she had another vacation planned ... I'm not sure. But she certainly seemed preoccupied and cost me a lot of time with my son. Example ... I have sole custody but am not entitled to vacation time with the child. The child's father was ordered to go to rehab and take a drug test every 3 months and somehow he gets vacation, holiday, and birthdays with him every year. The way the order was written, I'm actually not entitled to these things. Although she presented it to me as if I was. Please beware and get a second legal opinion before allowing her to write any stipulations of settlement for you. I paid a pretty penny for a very flawed settlement.
She handled my divorce and got me a GREAT settlement. Caring and compassionate about her work. She also has a very knowledgeable;e paralegal, who assists in the day to day stress of divorce. Highly recommend.
Miss Harrington is a brilliant and compasionate attorney. She fights for her clients and will not back down or be intimidated. The office staff is always courteous and calls back. Elizabeth is a terrific litigator and can try a case against any firm on LI and win. I absolutly got my monies worth.
She is not a dedicated lawyer, just look to take the money without any kind of effort to defend the interest of her client. If those interest are easy going, in other word, if the other lawyer won't put pressure on her, she might be good, but if a case need dedication and she need to confront the other lawyer with a quick resolution in favor of her client interest, she doesn't. Unfortunately Mrs. Harrington poor action and resolution mess up my case and she charge me a lot money just to be doing everything in benefit of the other part. I don't recommend her at all.
Elizabeth, will lead you down a path that will only benefit her. She over charges, by trying to convince you that what she is doing is completely necessary, when indeed it is not. She does not try to resolve issues quickly in order to reduce costs to her clients. She is strictly out to get money. I would stay far away. She does know how the court system works; I will give her that, however, only to her benefit.
