5.0 stars 20 totalReview Elizabeth Christy
Posted by Mike Bokma
I retained Elizabeth's Firm in 2015 to help with a fairly complex divorce and custody dispute lasting over a year and a half and can easily give her 5 stars. I selected her firm after meeting with several other attorneys from Portland to Longview. I found her firm had great reviews, more than fair pricing, personable staff, and were immediately trustworthy. I initially utilized one of her attorneys on staff who was mentored by Elizabeth and did an AMAZING job going above and beyond in my Temporary Parenting Plan process. Soon after the TPP process, the attorney on staff I'd been using unexpectedly left family law for other legal endeavors. In this absence Elizabeth, who already had a full case load, personally took on my case herself to see me through to the end with a great settlement as the outcome. Her excellent assistant Leslie also did a lot behind the scenes and played a key role in my case resolution.
Overall, in working with Elizabeth personally I found her to have excellent communication, her family law experience was apparent, her local experience in Clark County was also apparent, she was extremely assertive and proactive, and always had a positive demeanor throughout my stressful divorce process. I also wanted to specifically point out that her pricing was more than reasonable, she worked WITH me to help reduce costs versus finding ways to add costs or nickel and dime me, and was very clear about expected costs and various options based on these.
Based on my personal experience I would definitely recommend her firm if you are faced with divorce, child custody issues, or other legal matters where an attorney may be needed now or in the future.

I would highly recommend her (and have to friends and family) as an attorney!!!!
She is very fair, I used her in a custody case with my son back in 2012 and I loved working with her. She communicates and keeps you in the loop. She explains the process (in language you understand), what to expect and the outcome.
My son was recently adopted by my husband and we had to use a different attorney, that did not communicate with us, did not do things in a timely manner and over all was very frustrating! Something that should have taken a month to two months to complete took five months! Also, was told one fee and ended up being double! It made me appreciate my first experience with Elizabeth! Knowing that not all attorneys are like the one we dealt with.
We recently asked her to represent us in a child support case and I am so thankful for her being able to do it. She is human and easy to talk to and explain things to, with no judgement. She truly cares and wants to help!
In both cases she made sure that it was affordable and we really appreciate that being a family of five!
If we need to use her in the future she is our number one to go to! I also will continue to send people her way if need be!

Elizabeth was amazingly helpful in my child custody case. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and gave me honest assessments and sound advice. Following her expert guidance through a difficult case brought a happy resolution I don't believe I could have achieved through anyone else. She is the best.

We have dealt with Elizabeth and her firm for a few years now and have had a great experience, considering the circumstances. She is always friendly, compassionate and goes the extra mile for her clients. She is quick to correspond as needed whether it be by email or telephone. We would highly recommend her to others in need of a family law attorney.

I hired Liz after my ex and I realized we couldn't divorce amicably. Hiring Liz and her team was the best thing I could have done. She was efficient, patient with me, and knew what the hell she was doing (unlike opposing counsel- I guess you pay for what you get). Her team was the only reason I was able to preserve my sanity throughout the process. I would recommend Liz a thousand times over to anyone!

I hired Elizabeth to help with a very messy divorce and custody case that involved jurisdiction issues between Oregon and Washington. She was very knowledgeable about all the legal issues, gave me really good advice, and was able to coordinate with other lawyers that I was working with. I was referred to Elizabeth by a family friend who had been pleased with the service she provided him. Since working with Elizabeth, I have also referred to her to other close family friends. I would strongly recommend talking to Elizabeth before you hire an attorney for any family law issues.

I met Elizabeth 1 yr ago. My divorce was ugly to say the least. From initial consultation to settlement day Liz was my Guardian Angel. I felt secure knowing that she was on my side in my custody and divorce case. We had a series of victories from our first hearing and a few setbacks. I ran short of funds and went one month without her. Huge mistake. I was bullied and cornered by opposing counsel from the moment she left my side. Upon bringing her back, the opposition sang an entirely different tune. In the end, I came out very well on the custody front and the financial settlement was more than I could have hoped for. Divorce is hard on a man. I was a stay at home dad for 7 years. I felt alone and lost from the moment I chose to file. Elizabeth is a kind, respectful professional that opposing counsels fear in the courtroom. She is a warrior for her clients. She and her staff communicate effectively and keep things simple in explanation. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to have her represent me in my court proceedings. I honestly believe that my case would have went very badly with any other attorney. If you find yourself reading this review, you know you need an attorney who will go to war for you. Elizabeth is that attorney. She has proven to me time and again that she is up to the task of giving her clients the best representation money can provide. I hope this helps you decide on the right represntation for your legal matters. Do not allow your spouse to take advantage and hurt you. People change in divorce. The things you thought they would never be capable of come out. The stress is a heavy burden. Protect yourself. Choose an attorney you can trust and move forward with your life. Divorce requires a tough litigator. Elizabeth is the warrior you need. I cannot express my gratitude and respect for her. God bless you Elizabeth and thank you for being my warrior. Without you, I was a lamb. With you, I was a lion. You are the best!

My husband and I hired Elizabeth Christy when we were faced with an uphill challenge of family court matters nearly 4 years ago. We had no idea what to look for in a lawyer, so we delved in and scheduled a meeting with Elizabeth. We were so nervous, but were more lucky than we could of hoped for.
Elizabeth was compassionate, understanding, and very patient. As we prepared documents, she updated us every step. When we had court, she answered every question promptly. We always felt "in the loop" with what the status was and how court matters were progressing. She never promised us false outcomes to encourage us into hiring her or continuing to work with her. We hired her because she was so very honest and open about what our true options/possibilities are.
I could go on and give such specific details as to why you should hire her and quit looking for another attorney. There is a reason we continued to use her for nearly 4 years. We built a history with her and trusted her to understand what our challenges were and continue to be. I don't believe relationships like that develop without a level of trust and understanding.
Unfortunately, we were served documents from another county, and had to leave her services. My first sadness of being served, was not that we were served, but that we couldn't work with Elizabeth anymore. It speaks volumes that after our case transferred to another county, she continued to contact me and email to here what the final word was.
If ever the chance to handle family law matters in Clark County, there is no doubt that I would email her and ask if she would represent us again.

I am single dad that has one full time child and another child I have time with every other weekend. I have struggled with custody issues for over a decade now. Elisabeth was very straight forward and represented me well. She managed to accomplish in three months what 4 other lawyers couldn’t do in ten years. I couldn’t have asked for a lawyer who gets the job done and works well with the understanding of your wants and needs as a parent. I will use her in the future for sure.

Ms. Christy is an excellent attorney. I interviewed several attorneys before selecting her. She was extremely prompt in her responses to my questions. She always made me feel like a valued client. She kept me informed about each step in the process and counseled me about my choices. Ms. Christy is very thorough and explains every detail ensuring comprehension and truly takes her time to make sure that she meets her clients needs and expectations. Her staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend her highly.
