Elizabeth is an accomplished transactional attorney who has also had years of experience in higher education as both a faculty member and administrator. She is certified as a Civil Rights Investigator by the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA).


As a transactional attorney, Elizabeth represents clients in mergers and acquisitions, lenders in commercial loan transactions, and advises clients in a variety of business transactions.

For many years, she maintained an active residential and commercial real estate practice, serving as mortgage review counsel for a New Jersey commercial bank.


Prior to joining Walsh, Elizabeth served in full-time faculty positions in higher education, first as Paralegal Program Director and tenured senior professor at Union County College, and later as Associate Dean of the Heavin School of Arts and Sciences at Thomas Edison State University. While at Union County College, Elizabeth was elected by the American Association for Paralegal Education to the ABA Standing Committee on Paralegals Approval Commission. During her tenure at both schools, Elizabeth participated in investigations of student complaints and violations of
