Meet Liz Moneymaker

It’s important to note from the beginning that the legal process of Estate Planning, Probate & Trust Administration, Guardianship, Medicaid Planning and Asset Protection, Special Needs Planning or Veterans’ benefits is not about ME. It’s about you and your family, your concerns and your goals. My job is to be your advocate and advisor, helping you get the results you desire in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.

I know that by the time you get to the point of hiring an attorney, you are either serious about planning, or you are in a crisis situation. My firm has the tools to help you with either situation: compassionately, responsively, and with more than 23 years of legal experience behind me.
