Meet Paralegal & Firm Administrator, Elizabeth Theobald

Elizabeth, known as “Liz” around the office, is quickly approaching her 1-year anniversary with Grams & Christoffersen! The law runs in Liz’s blood as she’s been involved in the legal field ever since she was a kid. Liz attributes her interest in law to her mother: “My mom is an attorney and I started out doing simple tasks for her when I was young. I decided to go to Paralegal school after taking a business law course in college.

In addition to her Paralegal work, Liz is also our up-beat firm administrator, handling all our accounts receivable and accounts payable. If you have a question about your statement, Liz is your gal!
