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.
Elizabeth pursued her undergraduate studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. She then went on to obtain her Bachelor of Laws (Hons.) at the University of Buckingham in the United Kingdom. During law school, she was an elected representative of her university’s Senate & Council, member of the Executive of the Law Society, and Student Editor of the Lord Denning Law Journal. After obtaining her law degree, she worked in politics at the Federal level and completed her articles at a prominent mid-sized general service firm in St. Catharines, Ontario. She was called to the Ontario Bar in June of 2014.
Her practice encompasses a wide range of family law litigation, including but not limited to divorce applications, child custody and access matters, Children’s Aid Society matters, child support and spousal support, and property division. Elizabeth also recognizes that not all matters need to be litigated in the courtroom, and to that end is pleased to assist clients in drafting marriage contracts and separation agreements. She regularly attends professional development programs to remain up to date in the latest developments in family law, in order to provide quality service to her clients.
Elizabeth is passionate about helping her clients achieve the best possible outcomes in their matters, and to that end will work with them to tailor a plan that aims to achieve a beneficial resolution. When not practicing family law, Elizabeth sits on the Board of Directors at the Hamilton Arts Council. She formerly volunteered her time as a board member at Wesley Urban Ministries in Hamilton, Ontario. She enjoys playing the piano and alto saxophone, and cheering on the Toronto Raptors.
