She credits having those traits to her family and mentors who have shaped who she is both professionally and personally.

Her mom would say it’s because she always loved to argue, which is true. And her now fiance would probably say the same thing. Liz has always had an interest in the law. She enjoys reading fact patterns and developing creative solutions to help her clients. Those creative solutions are what set her apart from other attorneys.
