Couldn't Be Happier
Thanks to Elizabeth we could not be happier about the outcome of our case. She guided us through the confusion and emotional distress of a child custody hearing. This is not something you want to try to handle on your own. Her competence and compassion were evident and we consider ourselves fortunate to have found her. Don't hesitate to hire Elizabeth if you find yourself in a similar situation.

There when I needed her desperately
Elizabeth has been there for me since November. I desperately needed the help of an attorney and she answered my call. I was having difficultly finding someone to assist me but she agreed readily. I intend to recommend her very easily. She is affordable, caring and knows the law extremely well. She is a knowledgeable and friendly, no need to hesitate.

Brennan is the BEST!
Elizabeth Brennan did an amazing job representing me in a case involving a dog. Brennan was extremely prepared, knowledgeable, and fearless. Brennan spoke with confidence, which made me feel confident. She also made my case feel important, like she truly did care about the outcome of the judgement. The decision ended in our favor. I wasn't liable to pay the plaintiff anything. I appropriate the hard work and effort she put forth, if you want to win let Brennan take your case.

Great attorney!
I hired Elizabeth Brennan to help me with a lengthy divorce. It was a very difficult case due to many assets. Elizabeth was very helpful, personal and professional. It’s a hard enough time to go through a divorce, and I was thankful for her representation!

Attorney you can trust
I wanted to write this review to inform any person seeking support for your child or children through a divorce or a child disability. Elizabeth has been instrumental in knowing the laws and cases that will play a major part in a court decision. She is dedicated to you and your specific details individually. She listened to my concerns, the needs, and future financial care and medical required for my child. I could rest easier during this whole process and the years cases sometimes take through the family court system. Going to court is a very emotional and challenging thing to deal with but if you hire Elizabeth you will definitely be able to have direction, clear path of action steps, and a person that truly cares about the outcome and your families future. I am so very grateful for the work she is doing for my daughters and I.

Brynetta, CEO
I'm CEO of a minority-owned/vet-owned small business start-up. I received an opportunity to take on a multi-million dollar government contract. I quickly realized I needed a business attorney. Elizabeth Brennan seemed a good fit for my all female team. She is straight forward and easy to talk with. Not only did she take care of all my legal concerns, she was so good that the vendor wanted her to do his contracts also. I've invested a lot of time and money in my company, and now I have an awesome attorney to protect it all. So very grateful to Mrs. Brennan.

Fantastic lawyer, highly recommended !
We hired Elizabeth for a complex case - family / business related. We knew this case would be long and complicated as the other party didn't care at all about going to court and respecting any kind of agreement. It took more than 9 months of extensive work to finally get the court's final decree, but at the end of the end, we won the case. During all this time, Elizabeth has been patient and comprehensive (we are not American and not familiar with US procedures, and we are very picky) and never stopped fighting for us. She was always prepared and knew our case by heart and gave us the right advice at the right time. She is definitely an aggressive lawyer who knows exactly what she is doing, but not only. She is a fair and honest person, and someone you can really trust. From the first time we met, we had the feeling she was the right attorney to defend us (and we met a lot of them) now we can say we were right. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and family and hire her again if we have to.

Complicated case to present but she's a winner!
After reading Elizabeth's reviews I was hopeful that her attitude of "Aggressive, Effective and Efficient" (per her website) would be a good match for the unscrupulous man that was taking my family to court. I prepared all my supporting evidence and met with Elizabeth just two days before my court date. Seeing how complicated our situation was we were unsure if a judge would take the time to understand the complexity of the situation and rule in our favor. It felt like our options were limited because we lacked a written contract. We got this unsettling feeling that a satisfactory result would implausible. Elizabeth discussed with us the case she would present to the judge but also prepared us for the worse case scenario. She came in to court confident and ready to win. She walked the judge though our complex situation and the judge dismissed the crooked plaintiff's case. Elizabeth thank you for defending us. My family is so grateful for your service. You will be our go to attorney for all legal matters without reservation!

Night and day
Elizabeth Brennan is incredible. I was coming out of a nightmare of a first hearing and immediately sought out a new attorney. I’m blessed to have found Ms. Brennan. She came in and rectified all the wrongs and short comings of my prior attorney. Leading up to the hearing, communication was easy, direct, and to the point. Day of hearing she was very prepared. Concise and comprehensive with her points. Not to mention her composed, swift, and hard hitting rebuttals. I left the court room feeling complete and thoroughly represented. I can’t thank her enough for helping through this process.

Best divorce attorney in Las Vegas
I had been in a battle over custody and child support for 4 years when I finally found Elizabeth. I had been through 2 attorneys and over $100,000 fighting my ex husband, it seemed he was just going to get away with what ever he wanted because he owned his own business and no one could really help me. When I found Elizabeth she knew exactly what to do. She fought for my ex to have to file his taxes and prove his income to establish a very specific child support payment plan. She also was able to get my strata plus interest awarded to me and set up a payment plan for that. My ex was ordered to serve jail time due to his lack of following the previous orders. It has been 2 years since the order was awarded and I have had no problems. Elizabeth literally was the best thing that ever happened to me. I highly recommend her, she will listen to your issues, take everything you need or see fair and put it in to action.

Top Business Lawyer
I am an accomplished business man and have worked with a lot of lawyers over the years. Ms. Brennan is top tier and I highly recommend her. I first met her when she handled a very complex litigation matter for one of my companies. She did an amazing job and zeroed the other side. I use her now as my go-to attorney for all business litigation matters and for general business advice.
