Dedicated and personable, Liz Dankers has always enjoyed helping people. In her practice, Liz assists clients by patiently guiding them through the often times uneasy and complex litigation process. Her goal is to provide each client with a better understanding of the issues they are facing and work with them to find an agreeable resolution.

Liz takes a diligent and analytical, business-minded approach as she represents clients through all phases of litigation, including pre-litigation enforcement and counseling.

Liz also assists in efforts to mitigate future risk for clients by providing guidance concerning the development and implementation of strategies to avoid situations that could lead to investigations or potential litigation. 

Liz is comfortable working with a diverse range of clients from Fortune 500 companies to individuals, including those in the banking, finance, manufacturing and telecommunications sectors. 

Giving back to her community is important to Liz. In the last few years, she has been heavily involved in representing pro bono clients navigating the asylum process in both federal and immigration court proceedings, including high stakes cases that garnered national media attention. 

Beyond her client work, Liz is committed to her firm’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
