About Elizabeth

Learn Elizabeth’s areas of practice.

My practice has focused exclusively on family law since 2016. I handle matters including divorce, custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, business valuation, step-parent adoption, premarital agreements, protective orders, and enforcement issues. My cases have included complex issues such as mental health concerns, domestic abuse, alcohol and drug addiction, parental alienation, financial tracing, and unilateral dissipation of assets.

I believe that litigation is often the last resort in handling family law matters. I encourage my clients to consider alternatives to litigation, including lawyer negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law. However, I recognize that some cases are not appropriate for settlement and litigation is necessary for resolution. Regardless of how your matter is resolved, I will zealously advocate for a resolution that serves your best interests, including consideration of your financial, emotional, and legal rights and needs.

I currently practice in Arlington County, City of Alexandria, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Prince William County in circuit courts and juvenile and domestic relations courts.

Elizabeth is a terrific lawyer! You'll regret not utilizing her service.
Mary Said it best, I have dealt with several lawyers throughout the course of my divorce. Elizabeth is the most ethical, professional, and empathetic lawyer I have ever consulted. She worked with me through an often tumultuous divorce and using her practical and calming nature guided me through a rather difficult time in dealing with my ex. She has an innate ability to foresee any potential conflicts that may arise and worked with me to create an agreement that was in all party's best interests. I highly recommend Elizabeth and am telling everyone I know going through a divorce to use her. She is simply THE BEST!

Very professional and caring
I have dealt with several lawyers throughout the course of my life, and hands down, Elizabeth is the most ethical, professional, and empathetic lawyer I have ever consulted. She worked with me through an often tumultuous divorce and using her practical and calming nature guided me through a rather difficult time in dealing with an irrational ex. She has an innate ability to foresee any potential conflicts that may arise and worked with me to create a custody agreement that was in my child's best interests. I highly recommend Elizabeth and am telling anyone I know going through a tough divorce to use her. She is simply THE BEST!
