Elizabeth Weinandt


 I work with clients who are experiencing a change in their family whether that's divorce, child custody, parenting time, child support, division of assets & debts, or adoption. My clients look to me to educate them on the law and potential outcomes while keeping their goals at the forefront. Family law can be highly contentious, and I have over 20 years of courtroom experience. But it can also present an opportunity to have a positive effect on reshaping a client's family so they can move forward. My job is to help clients solve problems. It is an honor to be entrusted with a client's family and future and this is why I have dedicated my career to helping families with all of their family law matters.
