Elizabeth Shollenberger Esq.

About me

I spent most of my career in not-for-profit law, representing individual clients with civil legal problems.  Having a lawyer can make all the difference to the outcome of a case.  I have litigated hundreds of landlord-tenant cases, gained benefits for many dozens of clients seeking unemployment benefits or Social Security disability benefits, and represented parties in heated divorce and custody matters.  In my consumer practice, /I have represented debtors fighting creditors in State Court and have sued debt collectors in Federal Court when they have violted the law.


.  My practice now is similar to the years in legal services--I'm still representing individuals, and often individuals in crisis.  Now I represent people who can afford private counsel.
