This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Elizabeth won our case quickly!
Elizabeth and her son Peter Gulden won our malpractice case in about 13 Months! That's excellent for Orange County, Florida! They soundly handed their adversaries their defeat and made them settle out of court! We are extremely grateful to them, and recommend them to anyone who is looking to win their case in Central Florida. Losing is not an option for them. This took place in 2013 and I bet they know who we are too! We love them both! Also their Paralegal is outstanding as well! You cant' lose with this team!

A VERY BRAVE WOMAN
Elizabeth is an extrodinary attorney and lady she fought for my family even when things weren't looking so good in the end at least my children will have something to help them along in this world and I got some form of justice for my husband who is greatly missed. He died 11 years ago this month. Thank you Elizabeth good luck and God bless
