As a senior attorney, Elizabeth represents people who have been harmed by the criminal legal system by investigating and litigating claims of unconstitutional policing, conditions of confinement, and other civil rights violations. She also mentors and supports the SJLF fellows.

Before joining SJLF, Elizabeth was an attorney at Loevy & Loevy, a Chicago-based civil rights firm known for its success in securing multimillion-dollar settlements and jury verdicts across the country. At Loevy & Loevy, Elizabeth represented individuals who were wrongfully convicted due to police misconduct, and who sought justice and accountability through Section 1983 litigation. In her legal career, Elizabeth has also represented incarcerated clients in class action litigation at the ACLU National Prison Project.

During law school, Elizabeth worked for entities such as the Poverty and Race Research Action Council and the Special Litigation Section of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, where she assisted in pattern-and-practice investigations of prisons, jails, and law enforcement agencies. Before law school, Elizabeth served as an editor and writer at the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) in New York and as a public policy analyst at the Texas State Legislature. She has also held jobs as a short-order cook, a housekeeper, a cashier, and a bartender.

In her spare time, Elizabeth enjoys hearing live music at very small venues, watching offbeat movies, and reading books, amongst other things. She is grateful for the opportunity to practice the law and to help advance SJLF’s mission.
