Excellent counsel and guidance
Eliza has helped my husband and me navigate real estate and estate planning questions to ensure we knew about our options and risks, so that we are able to make sound decisions. She also provided excellent guidance for an employment contract question, which enabled me to navigate a potentially thorny issue with confidence. I highly recommend Eliza for her knowledge, wisdom, candor, and fairness in all areas, from giving legal advice to billing accurately and transparently for her work.

I've had a superb experience with Eliza as my divorce attorney. She enabled us to go through the process very smoothly, in spite of some unexpected difficulties derived from lockdown. Eliza worked hard to ensure my deadlines were met, as I was dealing with sensitive immigration timelines, and I am most thankful for it, especially in such a difficult life period. Her dedication was superlative. 5 stars.

Difficult divorce
Eliza represented me during a strenuous and lengthy divorce from an ex-husband who would beg, borrow, or steal if it meant making my life more difficult in any way. Not only was he difficult to divorce as his ex, but he was what I can only imagine was near impossible to deal with as an attorney. Eliza worked tirelessly to achieve an agreement that suited my needs and desires (as well as my son’s) and strategically dealt with my ex’s consistent immaturity and unresponsiveness with intelligence, promptness and great legal knowledge. While divorce is never easy, and this divorce in particular was emotionally grueling, Eliza was so supportive in every way- always listening to exactly what I wanted, making sure I was always updated and understanding everything, and she fought for me every step of the way. I would 1000% recommend her, and if I ever need representation again in the future I’ll absolutely be returning to her!

In your corner
Eliza helped my husband and I purchase a home. Not only was she knowledgeable but she was able to communicate effectively so that my husband and I were well informed about the process, how long it would take and what to expect. After we had closed we had the mortgage representative try to claim money from us that was not owed. It was so empowering to say "Moving forward all contact should be directed toward my attorney." Eliza sorted through the documents, illustrated the invalid claim and created an agreeable solution. Eliza is an advocate who is truly looking out for her client's best interest.

Over the last 18-24 months, I have retained Eliza to advocate relating to employment matters that concerned our family. On every occasion Eliza has exemplified everything I want in an advocate; consummately briefed on case law as it relates to her areas of practice, and forthright in advancing your side. One of Eliza's best qualities is that she is passionate about the clients she represents, enabling her to ably support us through a difficult period, in navigating the avenues available (and, conversely, not available) for our situation. If you want a skilled, passionate and well briefed attorney who can help you navigate, and reach the best possible outcome for your interests, then I highly recommend Eliza and her practice.

Domestic Abuse
I retained Eliza for a domestic partner abuse with a temp. restraining order was issued against me. The claims, despite being false, were stated in a very realistic convincing wordings that was almost impossible to revoke the order. Several other attorneys were consulted before retaining Eliza, who assured me I will lose the fight! Eliza listened to me, believed in her client, gathered info and facts and decided to accept the case despite the seemingly very much convincing accusations. Eliza was confident, highly professional and very well knowledgeable in the justice system. The deliberation was long and heated. The judge almost granted a permanent order, yet Eliza was so much in control of the situation. The ruling was a prompt drop for the restraining order and immediate clearance for me from any wrong doing. She is amazing and a real professional fighter.

Excellent service
My husband and I first hired Eliza to write our wills. She was very responsive through email and had all our documents ready with a quick turn around. An amendment that was made a year later with just as quick of a turn around. Even though our needs were not as extensive as I’m sure as many of her other clients she made us feel like we were just as important. This fall we also used her to represent us in buying our first home. She walked us through the process and jumped on the phone whenever we needed to answer our 5,000 questions. We felt well taken care of a fully informed while making the largest purchase of our lives. During the beginning of this process Eliza went on vacation. Her partner covered for her and passed it back to Eliza seamlessly. There is no lapse in communication at all. She was a strong advocate for us and caught several charges from our lender that weren’t necessary. If it weren’t for Eliza I’m not sure how we would have gotten through the process. We will be using her for any and all legal needs we may have in the future.

Highly recommend!
Eliza represented me during a contentious and protracted divorce. She is extremely competent, professional and kind. She never lost site of my case and did all she could to move things along. I have no doubt that my settlement was as favorable as it could have been. After the divorce was settled she continued to be readily available for other parenting and financial issues. I have recommended her to anyone I know looking for a divorce attorney.
