In 2000 Elizabeth began her career working in the personal injury field as a paralegal in Wilmington, Delaware. She gained invaluable knowledge working for an insurance defense firm where she remained for 14 years. Liz has worked on both sides of personal injury claims which has given her further insight into all aspects of personal injury law.
Liz recently moved to Venice, Florida in 2018 joining her husband, Gregg, who served 21 years in law enforcement in New Jersey, at the same time fulfilling a lifelong dream of “getting warm.” Liz jumped at the opportunity to work for Gerber Law as a paralegal immediately recognizing it was a “great fit.” Liz relishes the opportunity to assist people on a more personal level, and provide them with a caring, compassionate approach to their needs.
