About me

Elizabeth has been litigating since law school, where she won her first trial as a student with the Georgetown University Juvenile Justice Clinic, defending juveniles in delinquency matters before the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.  After graduation and passing the bar, she became an Assistant Public Defender for the City of Fredericksburg and the Counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, and King George.  After gaining significant trial experience there, she entered private practice in 2004.  She had the opportunity to participate in the successful appeal of Paiz v. Commonwealth of Virginia, published at 54 Va. App. 688 (2009), in the Court of Appeals of Virginia.

  • Paul L Mickelsen

    Liz just gets it. When she walks into court you can count on the fact she is absolutely prepared. She knows the law, studies out the issues, and knows how to use the law to her clients' advantage. I also appreciate she'll just tell you how it is and what she thinks, with no BS -- something sorely missing from many lawyers. I highly endorse this lawyer.

  • Thomas Harry Tousley

    I endorse this lawyer. Elizabeth is dedicated and responsive attorney. I am an immigration attorney that represents aliens in removal proceedings. She represented a mutual client facing criminal charges that impacted his immigration status. Working together, we were able to obtain a favorable outcome for the client and prevent his deportation. Since then I have referred aliens to her facing criminal charges based on the positive experience that I had in working with her.
