Elizabeth Turner, Attorney and Mediator (Of Counsel)
Elizabeth is an attorney/mediator who has practiced law for over 25 years, focusing on family law and elder law.  Elizabeth worked as a paralegal and legal assistant for 12 years before she went to law school herself.  Elizabeth left her successful solo practice in 2007 to accept a position as Assistant General Counsel at the Washington State Bar Association, where her duties included serving as Chief Presiding Officer at the Bar Exam.  (Rumor has it that the sound of Elizabeth’s voice has induced flashbacks in those who took the Bar Exam under her supervision.)  Elizabeth left the WSBA and happily returned to private practice in January 2014.  She has served for many years as a judge and commissioner pro tem and currently limits her private practice to serving as a mediator and arbitrator in family law and elder law matters (including complex guardianships and TEDRA cases).  Elizabeth is the author of the Rules Practice and Family & Community Property Law volumes of Washington Practice, and will soon be assuming co-authorship of the Evidence volumes as well.  Elizabeth is a Washington native and a lifelong resident of Snohomish County; in her spare time, she enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with her family.
