Attorney Elizabeth Smith Chavez graduated summa cum laude from The University of San Diego Law School, and then gained invaluable knowledge by working with a large law firm. After 36 years of experience in a variety of legal settings, Liz decided to open her own firm specializing in real estate conflict resolution, business litigation, probate litigation, and oil and gas. One of her greatest motivations is to represent individuals and small businesses, who often prefer a more personalized approach than large firms typically provide. Several decades of experience have helped Liz to develop a large network of legal connections in the San Diego area. Martindale Hubbell has given Ms. Smith-Chavez its highest rating (AV) for 25 straight years.

While her primary area of practice focuses on real estate litigation, Liz has led numerous seminars and classes on the topic. She is also the lead co-author of “Real Property Litigation”, a three-volume set of books about real estate law and conflict resolution practices.
