  • James William Norman IV

    I heartily endorse Liz, having worked with her on a number of estate planning matters. She is highly competent, very skilled, and dedicated to her work. She is one of Austin's experts in LGBT estate planning and is also a leader in Austin's legal community.

  • Christine Henry Andresen

    Liz is quite expert about wills, trust, and probate issues. She is one of my go-to colleagues when I have questions in these areas. Also on LGBT issues in general, I have spoken on panels with her in this area and been impressed with her knowledge.
