Employment Law and Elections – 

Liz applies her passion for problem-solving and her strong background in legal research to assist clients in navigating the ever-changing employment law landscape.

A regular contributor to Verrill’s Taking Care of HR Business blog, Liz handles a variety of employment matters including working with businesses of all sizes to ensure that their policies are in compliance with the latest legal updates and are working effectively for the organization in practice. Liz also advocates for clients facing claims before state and federal courts, the Maine Human Rights Commission, and the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board.

During law school, Liz served as a Bernstein Fellow at the Maine District Court and a judicial extern to the Honorable Kermit Lipez of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. After law school, Liz clerked for the Honorable Andrew M. Mead of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, where she gained invaluable insight into the litigation process from a judicial perspective.

Liz lives in South Portland with her husband. When she’s not at the office, Liz enjoys experimenting with new recipes, running, and exploring Maine’s hiking trails and beaches.
