Liz reviewed the operating agreement for my game development start-up and provided excellent advice. She caught several errors and pointed out a number of subtle issues I - and my partner's lawyers - had missed. I was deeply impressed with her capacity for clearly communicating complicated topics, and would strongly recommend her to anyone starting a game company.

I've met Liz at several game development community events and I worked with a client of hers whose well written contractor agreements I have seen firsthand. When I needed specialized legal advice on a game publishing contract that my general practice attorney was not able to provide, I reached out to Liz for help. She provided a detailed assessment of the situation, the risks involved and our options to proceed in the matter.

I am a freelance digital artist and first met Liz at community events--she is very friendly and courteous. I remembered her when I wanted to hire a lawyer to help me draft a contract for a new project/client. She told me clearly from the outset the price for the type and quantity of work, and she stuck to it. I was out of town at the time and she was able to work with me long distance. Her feedback on the contract was analytical and clear, exactly what I needed. And the price was reasonable. I would definitely recommend Ms. Surette.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
Liz is driven to see that her clients succeed because she both is good at what she does and believes in what they do. Also, she is the only lawyer I have met that I would say is maybe even more of a gamer than I am.
Daniel Rosenthal, Gaming Attorney
Liz is an excellent lawyer, offering insightful legal analysis on a wide array of issues, including intellectual property. Her commentary and analysis of topical Supreme Court decisions was directly responsible for the success of GamesLaw, the legal blog Liz wrote for.
