I have known Elizabeth for about five years and have worked with her first as a peer on several challenging matters and then as a client. She is the first lawyer that I think of to handle potentially litigious employment cases because of her outstanding ability to understand, identify and clearly communicate the legal issues, her knowledge of the applicable laws and her client advocacy skills. She is not only a brilliant lawyer, she is also very level-headed and supportive. No matter how busy she was, I always felt like my employment legal needs were taken care of in a compassionate, timely and practical way. Based on this and more, I highly recommend Elizabeth Riles without hesitation.
Most recently, Elizabeth handled my personal injury matter. I had been knocked off my bicycle by a large corporate car turning into my path without looking. It wasn't an enormous case or anything, but she made time for it. She completely understood the incident right away, asked some incisive questions, and went to work on it. I got a good settlement; neat, tidy, done. The thing is, Elizabeth is great to work with. I've been working with her for years. She's very personable and energetic, matter-of-fact, and has exactly the right amount of time for your matter. You know you're in good hands. She has a similar manner with the opposing side; they also quickly know you're in good hands too, because she's tough as nails and not to be messed with. I'd feel sorry for the other side, except they deserve it.
