Excellent Attorney
I would highly recommend Liz from my experiences with her in the past year since I first saw her for a consultation. She has been a go-to for questions for me as a mental health therapist: she is always prompt in response, gets me the answers I need, and is also personable and easy to work with. For me, it's extremely important to have a lawyer not just from my liability insurance company because I know Liz will have my interests front and center. I also find it invaluable that she is well-versed in North Carolina laws - for me, these have involved everything from contract law to family law - as well as having familiarity with the specifics of mental health care. I am so pleased to have found her as a resource.

Excellent attorney!!!
Liz Vennum was recommended to me by a friend and I am so grateful. From the time we first spoke, I could tell that she really cared about me as a person and not just a “client”. She set realistic expectations with me and we worked well together as a team. Liz is extremely knowledgeable, skilled and professional as well as empathetic and kind during what can be a stressful time. I was confident that I was in good hands with Liz from our initial consult to the completion of the case. It was so refreshing to experience how communicative Liz was throughout the whole process. This was most reassuring as she always responded to calls and answered my correspondence promptly as opposed to me feeling “out of the loop” which can be very disconcerting. Not the case at all with Liz. She is undeniably the best attorney I have ever worked with. She is stellar at her job. She provides expertise and professional knowledge as well as a personable and genuine personality. She treated me as more than just a “client.” She is definitely a cut above most professionals. She is compassionate and truly had my best interest at heart. Liz undoubtedly “went to bat” for me and I appreciate her. She not only does her job extremely well, she is passionate about her clients. I highly recommend her and I am confident that she will meet your needs to the best of her ability. Thank you Liz!

Effective Team
The team seem to work well together and respond in a timely manner. Liz (my assigned attorney) took the time to review material presented to her prior to our meeting; she was attentive and professional throughout the briefing. Shortly after our meeting Liz was able to correspond with employer and gained favorable advance towards my claim.
