Her practice focuses on criminal defense with a special emphasis on appeals and post-conviction relief. Elizabeth has successfully defended people accused of crimes in both state and federal court with charges ranging from DUI to white collar offenses to murder.
Elizabeth began her legal career over 12 years ago when she quickly solidified her reputation as an organized, diligent and fearless advocate for her clients, regardless of the severity of their charges. As only a third-year attorney, she was selected to serve as co-counsel for one of the first “Honor Killing” prosecutions in the United States. The trial was nationally televised and has been discussed in multiple books and news programs, such as 48 Hours. Elizabeth and her co-counsel successfully convinced the jury to find their client not guilty of first-degree murder and not guilty of attempted murder. Although he was convicted of lesser-included offenses, the verdict was nationally touted as a significant win for the defense.
