Elizabeth Szabo was as my lawyer. We had been communicating these last few weeks as I live in North Carolina and met for the first time the day before my hearing April 19 to dismiss the case filed against me in Virginia.
Immediately I liked her and felt an instant rapport. I felt I was in excellent hands. She was prepared, she was thorough, and most of all she was nice—she was kind and gracious during what has been a very difficult time. I instantly liked and trusted her and immediately felt I could depend on her and that she had my back. I knew besides her I would feel as good and comfortable as possible under the circumstances. I was right.
She was fantastic in court. She was poised, extremely knowledgeable and just a star, but quiet and humble and respectful to everyone. This was my first time ever being in court or on the witness stand and there is no one I would have rather been beside me. I am so grateful for all she did for me and for her kindness and just absolute competence as a lawyer. You are truly lucky to have her and I wanted you to know how wonderful, dedicated and hardworking she has been with my case. She is just the best in every way and I didn’t want all her dedication and hard work to go unnoticed. I couldn’t have been luckier to find her. She is a wonderful person and an incredible lawyer!
