Knowledgeable, Dedicated, Effective
Ms. LePley's deft advocacy likely saved my life. She knows the law. She knows her way around. She knows how to get what injured clients deserve and need. I highly recommend her work. You'll be in good hands.

Exceptional attorney
Elizabeth is hands down the best personal injury attorney out there. She has personally helped me with two accidents. One from 2009 and one from 2011. She takes the time to fully explain all of the legal jargon and answer any of my questions. Besides her positive and answer attitude, she is also flexible and willing to take her time with any issue that may arise. I have recommended so many people to her and will continue to in the future. I have always been pleased with her work.

Phenomenal and Honest
I can't say enough about how much Elizabeth has helped my family. She has guided us through my work injury and helped me beyond ways that I could express. She is kind and caring and a positive person who keeps me going through retraining.

Elisabeth helped me from the beginning of February 2008 to 2011; L&I/SS/Medical/Etc. can't be handled by yourself. She handled everything...even arranged specialized therapy. Getting back to me with answers would be within hours; kind and professional; and even if she was home she would be in contact. I would highly recommend her services. Barbara Belen

Excellent Disability Claims Lawyer
From my point-of-view the most important thing in working with an attorney is results – and Elizabeth delivered on a disability appeal for me. As an important ‘bonus’ she was also business-like, warm, and compassionate. She listened carefully to my history, and then explained the process and what I could expect. She made her role clear – and also told me what I needed to do to support the appeal. She returned all my phone calls and emails promptly, and earned my trust and confidence. It’s been great having her on my side!

Workers compensation Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Elizabeth is one of the top lawyers on the Eastside handling personal injury and workers compensation claims. When I get inquiries from someone injured on the job, I send them to Liz. When I have questions about workers comp or injury claims, I ask her. She knows her stuff, and perhaps more importantly, knows how to get things done. She's a good mix of smart, tough, and practical. She doesn't let opposing lawyers or insurance adjusters push her or her clients around. And she gives straight answers, which is hard for a lot of lawyers to do. She hasn't lost her commonsense, and that serves her and her clients well."
