    - Jun 30 2023 Liz is a compassionate attorney (something I always thought to be an oxymoron.) She tries her best to keep costs down, while getting the job done to the best of her ability. She is levelheaded, patient, and smart. I didn’t get all that I wanted in my circumstance, but that’s just because we were dealing with someone who didn’t play by the rules. I appreciated her dedication and honesty throughout a very difficult case.

    - Feb 17 2023 Liz and her team (Seema and Stephanie) have been amazing. I’ve been fighting a custody case for over 2 years and although it’s been a lengthy and torturous process dealing with my narcissistic ex, we’ve reached a best possible outcome this far. I’m extremely grateful for her attention to detail, timely responses and understanding for my situation. She is someone you can trust and know she has your best interest at heart. Thank you again for everything you’ve done and continue to do as we still have a long road ahead of us.

    - Jan 13 2022 I have been a client of Liz Wakeman from 2006-2021, as a result of a very litigious ex-husband. I have worked with her for fifteen years and I can say unequivocally that she is both an excellent attorney and an outstanding human being. She combines professional expertise with deep and genuine care for her client and those affected by the divorce; in my case, this meant that she prioritized what was best for me and my children. My experience with other attorneys, who often pay more attention to finances than anything else, confirms that this is a special quality of the Wakeman Law Group. Liz is knowledgeable of family practice case law as well as interpersonal dynamics, so she is always striving to de-escalate tensions and reach amicable settlements. In cases where mediating and reaching mutual agreement is impossible because of the recalcitrance of opposing counsel, she is knowledgeable of family case law and effective in trial situations. During the fifteen years that I worked with her, she prevailed in court repeatedly while maintaining the highest ethical standards. I am very loyal to Liz and have come to consider her a friend as well as my attorney, who cares about my welfare and that of my children. The team Liz has recruited is also exceptional; of special note, she has an extremely reliable paralegal who is always available for consultation when Liz is occupied in court. For those searching for a divorce attorney, I would encourage you to ask yourself what kind of person you would like representing you in court. Your attorney is a reflection of you to the judges, to opposing council, and to all the members of your family who are affected by your divorce. I have not regretted choosing Liz – a kind, ethical, and intelligent attorney – to represent me for the past fifteen years.

  • Laura Middaugh

    - Oct 22 2018 I was divorced 6 years ago and I still recall how unsettling and unnerving starting the process felt. From our initial meeting, however, I knew Liz was the best person I could have chosen to stand by my side during the process, and I continue to be thankful for her support during that time as well as the well-written decree that resulted from my work with her. Since its finalization, the decree has preemptively spelled out specific procedures for post- divorce situations that I never would have anticipated and that would have likely resulted otherwise in additional stress and conflict between myself and my former spouse, as well as the potential for additional litigation. Based on her years of experience, Liz told me what I could realistically expect legally which helped me stand strong when I needed to while at the same time keeping my expectations realistic. She was good about employing wise legal strategies and keeping me informed of her reasoning. Most importantly, Liz knows how to be supportive on a human level. She is compassionate when working with clients while standing strong and firm in the courtroom. This was vital in moving me through a long and draining process. One of her greatest strengths is that she realizes that maintaining a positive outlook and a clear head are critical and helps her clients maintain both.

    - Oct 21 2018 Top notch legal representation!! I cannot say enough about the service I received from Wakeman Law Group. They are excellent communicators, organizers and a formidable presence in court. My divorce was lengthy and nasty. I could not have gotten through it without the compassion and work done by Liz and Stephanie.

  • George Keenan

    - Oct 16 2018 I had been to several lawyers that told me I didn’t have many options and would have to accept the outcome. A friend recommended her office. I walked in told Liz my sad but true story and she immediately laid out a plan that worked out very well for me. I have recommended her to several people
