Elise Grist

“Family Law matters are often challenging and emotional. The decisions can change the course of people’s lives. My goal is to help clients through the legal system professionally while also being sensitive to their personal needs and situation.

I am a passionate advocate, and from a young age I knew I wanted a career where I would help people. I believe that it is important to be understanding and empathetic of our clients needs, as well as strategic and tenacious in our approach to a case.

It is very rewarding to be able to assist clients at what is often one of the most difficult times of their lives. I am fortunate that our firm is big enough to deal with any legal issue and small enough to remember that our clients are real people.”
