Elizabeth Christy, Attorney

Elizabeth Christy Taylor


Elizabeth is a compassionate and determined advocate who represents all types of individuals in divorce, separation, custody, child and spousal support, prenuptial agreements, relocation, and parentage/paternity. Elizabeth takes pride in her ability to obtain her client’s desired results using various strategies and, while she consistently explores the possibility of settlement, is not averse to litigation and relishes her time in the courtroom. In an era when many attorneys went to law school to pass the time, Elizabeth is driven and passionate about her work.  

Elizabeth earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Oregon and later obtained her Juris Doctorate from Golden Gate University. Prior to opening her practice in 2007, Elizabeth worked as an extern for the Honorable Marjorie Slabach in the San Francisco Superior Court Unified Family Court. She was admitted to the Washington and Oregon State Bars in 2007 and 2013, respectively. Elizabeth is NITA (National Institute of Trial Advocacy) trained and also serves Clark County as a Pro Tem Commissioner. She served as President of the Clark County Bar Association Family Law Section for two years and was elected by her peers to serve on the Washington State Family Law Section Executive Committee for a term of three years.

When she’s not working or mentoring newer attorneys, Elizabeth is spending time with her family and friends enjoying the outdoors, traveling to the coast, or trying new restaurants.

“The best at what she does. HONEST! Elizabeth Christy is a hard working professional. She worked on a parenting plan and child support case for us. We were extremely happy with how she handled that case, that when we needed an attorney for another case, we went straight to her. She doesn’t do unnecessary work to run up a bill like some attorneys, she is very fair for her time, knowledge and skill. She is patient, understanding, will argue your case with integrity and fortitude. If you need an Attorney and want the best? You found her! Best Wishes”

“Elizabeth is a top-flight attorney, and I cannot recommend anyone more highly. She is ultra-competent and sharply focused, and will advocate solidly on your behalf while maintaining the right balance of class and decorum necessary to make real headway with the “other side.” Elizabeth’s qualities as an attorney are particularly enhanced by the fact that she is simply an outstanding human being. This ethereal and irreplaceable “heart and soul” is important, because your family law attorney sees you, and most everything about you, at one of life’s lows.”

K. Brown

“Elizabeth is a professional with class, integrity, a knowledge of the law and procedures, emotional commitment, and common sense in her expertise in Family Law. She is committed to her practice and her clients, and you will be in GREAT hands – every client is her number one priority.”
