    • I recommend Elizabeth Oberlin.
    • I hired Elizabeth 6-12 months ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    I'll start off by saying that in my household, Elizabeth is referred to as the "Super Lawyer". An incredibly trustworthy person. Elizabeth handled my case in the best possible fashion and got me more than I could have ever asked for! Working with many lawyers in the past I noticed right away how responsive and aggressive with my case Elizabeth was. She always kept me posted on my case and was extremely knowledgeable in and out of her field. She was truly a blessing for my family and me. Very easy to work with, understanding, and kind. I highly suggest her to anyone searching for an attorney!!

  2. Easily Manipulated by Tougher Attorneys.

    • I do not recommend Elizabeth Oberlin.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.

    A friendly and genuine person, however lacked the skill set needed to get the job done when the going got tough. This was apparent in the limited communication as time progressed with the case. Though she is nice, nice doesn't always win. I would love to recommend her, however if your looking for a more aggressive and seasoned attorney....I would look elsewhere.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Oberlin.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Wrongful Termination matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    After more than two decades with a company I have always been grateful to work for I was terminated. I spent several months going through various legal processes to get my job back. When all this failed I picked up the yellow pages and contacted Liz. Right from the start she was compassionate, caring, understanding, and very knowledgable. She was up front and HONEST with me. She was my last hope giving me the ability of restoring my livlihood and taking care of my family. I will be forever thankful for what she has done for me!

    From the very first conversaton that I have with Liz and explaining what had happened to me; she was VERY professional and made me immediately feel at ease. We won the case but most importantly, she is a power horse that has an awesome drive! I referred her to another (2) friends that they were VERY happy with her too!

  6. Sweet, professional great at what she does!

    • I recommend Elizabeth Oberlin.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Discrimination matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I found Liz on a fluke. I looked up business discrimination lawyers in the yellow pages. I just wanted a name to throw out to the company I was filing a suit against, to shake them up a bit. Then I met Liz, and she turned out to be perfect for my case and my lifestyle. No inconvenient meetings in her office, she worked with my chaotic lifestyle and we communicated mainly by phone and email.
    She was professional, sweet and down to earth when she needed to be. Liz was an awesome choice! I would recommend her a million times over...

    • I recommend Elizabeth Oberlin.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I found Ms. Oberlin in the yellow pages, didn't know a thing about her before our initial meeting. I came away impressed with her knowledge of the law and the relative strengths and weaknesses of my case. She kept me in the loop and accepted my input on strategy without being dismissive or condescending. The whole process of negotiating an employment settlement with my former employer took about seven or eight weeks, an eternity to me at the time, but pretty reasonable in retrospect. My only criticism was she could have been a little better about returning calls in a timely fashion, but was possible trying to keep the billable hours lower. I was very satisfied with the outcome, and because I went with the option of billing by the hour vs. the contingency option, I was also happy to see she was very reasonable and did not bill me for everything conceivable, as has been my experience with other attorneys. I give her an A or A- overall, I would use her again.
