Liz is the attorney you want on your side!
Liz has remained our attorney of record for over 6 years now. That is because she provides honest, thorough, and exceptional counsel. Liz will always have my recommendation for ALL your family law needs in Arizona. She is respectful but aggressive and is highly knowledgeable. She has brought some closure to our family and not knowing she would be doing so, protected my child from irreparable damage. I cannot thank or recommend her enough.

Wonderful, Honest and caring attorney
Liz is the best attorney. Liz cares about her clients and she works really hard, and wants fairness in the courtroom. She has been my attorney in a high conflict case for the past three years. I am not a wealthy person, I am a nurse. Her rates are very fair. She cares a lot about my son and my case, and that means the world. The most important rule to think about, is to hire a attorney that is honest. She is very honest, and I trust her with all her advice.

Excellent advocate
Liz has been my attorney pre and post decree. She fights for her clients but also is honest and practical in attempting to resolve matters between the parties. Liz is responsive to emails and phone calls within 24 hours. I have spoken to friends about her advocacy, professionalism and assertiveness when needed-- leaving others impressed and interested in hiring Liz for their future litigation. I highly recommend Liz for parties in pre or post decree matters. --CC
