    I am very proud to have had the opportunity to work with Lizzy. She is a top shelf attorney, who has an enormous command of the law, a relentless work ethic and is one of the finest legal writers I have had the pleasure to work with. If you have the opportunity, as an attorney, to share a case with Lizzy, you will not be disappointed. If you are in need of a defense attorney, I highly recommend that you take the time to consider this exceptional and dedicated professional.
