As a retired US Army Veteran with many commendations and accolades, including a Bronze Star for her service as a JAG officer deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom, Liz is no stranger to fighting for our Veterans and our Elderly.
Liz’s personal experience in helping her parents negotiate the healthcare maze and understand long term care and nursing home care was the impetus behind transitioning her focus from general civil litigation to solely Elder Law. Using her 20 plus years of state and federal litigation experience, including jury and non-jury trials, arbitrations, and mediations, Liz is a force to be reckoned with and her recognition as a Florida Super Lawyer in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 along with being awarded the prestigious AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubell is a testament to her proficiency.
Currently, Liz is a Director of the Manatee County Bar Association and Treasurer of the Manatee Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers. Most recently she was chosen to be a member of the Veteran’s Benefit Committee, in the Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar. Liz is active in the local veteran’s community as a member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and as an advocate for the non-profit Operation Second Chance, which serves wounded, inured and ill combat veterans.
As Chair of the Manasota Track Club Fundraising Committee, Liz is very active in the local running community. She enjoys organizing and participating in overnight relays and trail runs, and recently began enjoying riding the Legacy Trail on her first road bike. When she is not running or cycling around the area, Liz enjoys the company of her two pugs, Roxy and Lexi, and is often seen about town traveling with them.
