Elizabeth counsels and defends businesses of all sizes, as well as their carriers and third-party administrators. She has a particular interest in helping small business owners and is fiercely devoted to protecting their interests. After all, her “Papaw”, Ralph Williams, started and owned a small-town business for over 50 years. Elizabeth says, “Papaw is my greatest role model. He is the hardest worker I have ever met, and his community adores him.”

Her grandfather’s work ethic and commitment to the community certainly have had a huge impact on Elizabeth. As an undergraduate student at Centre College, she was a John C. Young Scholar. She was one of seven students selected for this honor; it allowed her to complete a year-long research project that culminated in a paper that was published in the John C. Young Journal. Additionally, Elizabeth presented her paper, Rape and Suicide in Medieval Law and Literature: The Case of Chaucer, at the John C. Young Symposium. She was also a Bonner Scholar, a national service organization, for all four years and had multiple community service roles. Most notably, she was a medical and legal advocate for the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center. During her senior year, she won the award for having the most service hours in the program amongst the entire undergraduate class. Elizabeth was also awarded the Emily R. Cowan Memorial Prize for the best undergraduate essay in English.

Her impressive achievements continued throughout her law school years at Washington and Lee University School of Law. Elizabeth was a student attorney for the Community Legal Practice Center where she represented low-income clients in various civil matters including estate planning, contested adoption, adverse possession, nuisance, and unpaid wage claims. She also served as a research assistant to Professor Jill Fraley, was a legal intern for a healthcare company, and was a Summer Associate for a Virginia law firm.

When Elizabeth is not working hard for her clients, she enjoys exercising, reading, and spending time with her husband, two young children, and their two huskies.
