About Liz

Elizabeth K Newman

“Hard work builds character,” may as well have been stenciled on Liz’s nursery wall as a child.  From her first job at a diner in Central Pennsylvania, to working at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, to assisting U.S. soldiers as a legal receptionist, Liz took that message to heart. Liz also learned that sometimes working hard isn’t enough to protect you from being unfairly treated or being taken advantage of. Liz focused on labor and employment law at American University’s Washington College of Law, interning at the Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).  After law school, Liz joined the NLRB as a staff attorney on a Board Member staff.  In 2007, wishing to directly assist Federal employees, Liz left the NLRB to practice at a Washington, DC employment law firm, where she worked with Peter Jeffrey.  Seeing a kindred hard worker, Liz has practiced with Peter for almost ten years.  Together, they focus on honest, straightforward advice for their clients. Because her clients have put hard work into their Federal careers, she works equally hard to help them in their Federal employment matters.
