Professional Biography

Overview

Elizabeth defends clients against claims brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and similar state and federal laws through litigation, mediation and arbitration. She represents clients in a variety of industries, including construction, energy, electrical and health care.

With the eye of an employment litigator, she advises clients on a wide variety of issues, including discipline and terminations, leave, disability accommodation, policy implementation and enforcement in an effort to position client to avoid employment law claim altogether or otherwise put employers in the strongest position to defend such claims.

She manages Department of Labor investigations, regularly responds to EEOC charges and drafts position statements. She drafts and enforces non-competition and non-solicitation agreements and speaks and writes on emerging issues in labor and employment law. She also advises and defends clients with regard to other employment-related tort claims, including claims related to drug testing policies and programs.

During law school Elizabeth served as a judicial extern to Judge James J. Brady in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana.
