John Demas, Estate planning Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Elizabeth Smith-Chavez is a wonderful resource, heavily connected with the San Diego legal community and the San Diego County Bar Association, as well as providing informal mentoring of attorneys here in San Diego. Her solutions are practical, and she always has a friendly, warm smile and deals collaboratively to solve client problems. I highly recommend Elizabeth!
Daniel Andrist, Insurance Attorney
I have worked with Liz for over 23 years. Simply stated, she is one of the best litigation lawyers I know. She defines the qualities most desirable in a legal professional--integrity, knowledge, experience, diligence, and tenacity. I highly recommend Liz to anyone seeking a capable advocate in virtually any type of dispute, but especially with regard to real estate, oil and gas matters, and probate.
