Elizabeth is an associate with Aronson Mayefsky & Sloan, where she represents clients in all aspects of matrimonial and family law.

Elizabeth is passionate about family law and devoted her legal training to this field. Prior to joining the firm, Elizabeth served as an intern for the Honorable Lori S. Sattler, who sat in a dedicated matrimonial part in the New York County Supreme Court. She also completed a matrimonial course, taught by the Honorable Matthew F. Cooper (ret.) and the Honorable Laura E. Drager (ret.), which focused exclusively on divorce in New York state. These experiences have provided her with a rare perspective and understanding of how matrimonial judges evaluate and adjudicate topics such as child custody disputes and the equitable distribution of assets.

Elizabeth received her Juris Doctor from New York Law School where she was a Global Fellow Scholar on a full-tuition scholarship, an Editor on the Law Review, and Vice Chair of the Moot Court Association. Underscoring her commitment to matrimonial law and academic excellence in related coursework, Elizabeth’s Law Review Note, which focused entirely on the New York Domestic Relations Law, was selected for national publication. She also received the Ernst C. Steifel Writing Award for Excellence in Comparative-Common Civil Law as well as the Alexander D. Forger Award for Distinguished Service to the Profession.

Elizabeth earned her undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University where she graduated cum laude with honors and distinction in English and Philosophy.
