Another native of Orlando, Elizabeth attended Edgewater High School and stayed in state for her collegiate and law school educations graduating from rival universities. Despite receiving her law degree with honors from the University of Florida, she remains loyal to Florida State University from which she received her BS in Media Communication, also with honors.
After law school graduation, Elizabeth began working as a litigator which she did full time for thirteen years. In those years, she split time between small litigation firms and the Florida Attorney General, where she exclusively litigated eminent domain matters, along with Ms. Ziegler, on behalf of various governmental agencies. In 2010, she switched tracks and began teaching Business Law as a full time instructor at Full Sail University for students in the Entertainment and Music Business Bachelors degree programs. Simultaneously, she began serving as a Special Magistrate for numerous central Florida Value Adjustment Boards presiding over ad valorem tax disputes.
In addition to her teaching and part-time magistrate work, Elizabeth has now joined the Ziegler Law Group of counsel to work with Ms. Ziegler in representing property owners, business owners and tenants in defending their eminent domain takings.
Florida’s ever-growing population drives the need for building new roads and highways, widening existing roads and highways, constructing new schools, and expanding or adding utilities including natural gas and electric power. Under Florida’s law and constitution, the government can only take your property to expand the state’s infrastructure if it proves it needs your property for a public purpose and pays you full compensation.
