*ON MATERNITY LEAVE*

Elizabeth joined DeLong Law in the Fall of 2016, where she exclusively practices family law. Prior to joining the firm, she gained valuable experience in family law in Hamilton, Ontario, arguing matters within and outside of Hamilton at the Ontario Court of Justice, Superior Court of Justice, and the Unified Family Court.
