Liz Abdnour is just amazing. She is incredibly supportive to her clients, very helpful, responds super quickly and helped me resolve my issue in such a compassionate, understanding, and supportive way. I would give 6 stars if I could.
Elizabeth (Liz) Abdnour represented my family during our case. She is dedicated, kind, and patient. She takes the time to make sure all the facts can be presented. We really enjoyed working with Liz. We would recommend her to anyone seeking legal help. My family was out of state, and she did her very best to work around time change.
You've been an inspiration to us, Liz. Please know this! Your compassion, determination, and resilience have given us the strength to keep moving forward even when the road has been a total sh*t show. Your commitment to fighting for [child] (all victims) has been nothing short of remarkable. You are a true badass, and your dedication to justice is awe-inspiring.
I really enjoyed working with Liz, she helped me during a really hard time. I was groped at work (in state government) by a superior, and his superior was enabling his actions. I felt hopeless and thought I should find a new job, but I also wanted to make a report before I left. Liz helped me file the appropriate forms to make a report of discriminatory harassment. In working with her, I also let go of a lot of feelings of shame and fear of retaliation because she could contextualize what had happened to me from an experienced place. Happily, the report was successful and both superiors were let go and I was able to stay at my job. I recommend her to every woman I know who is experiencing any kind of discrimination in her workplace. Lastly, Liz worked with me to make the experience affordable. She is really a great person to have on your team. If I ever have a work issue again, she is the first person I will call.
Thank you for representing me.... I truly couldn’t have done it without you agreeing to represent me and fighting with me for so long.
I’m so happy I have been able to get to know you and will be forever grateful for all you’ve done for me. You helped me get my life back. I’m glad this case is over, but I’m sad not to be working with you anymore! In the future, if I need legal counsel or my family does, you’ll be the first person I call.
I’m sure I’ll talk to you soon, but thank you thank you thank you for everything you’ve done and for just being the best, most badass lawyer. I’m honored to know you and be represented by you.
This is bitter sweet. You are amazing and I have no words of how grateful I am to have you. Thank you isn’t enough... you have been nothing short of amazing.
This is only an end to a chapter, not a book.
Liz is the absolute best. If you need a good lawyer who will fight for you and make you feel safer after a horrible experience of being taken advantage of by someone you trusted, Elizabeth Abdnour is the person you need.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. We truly appreciate it and you. You better believe that we will not forget you and recommend your firm highly. Currently...[student] is progressing well and is a 3.0 student. Yeah!!!!! I am a proud Momma. Thank you again not just for your help but for your genuine concern. May you continue to be bless.
Liz had many cases already but took on my case as well. When I met with Liz, here is someone young, vibrant, kind and someone whom finally listened to me. Liz took her time to listen to my story, but she sat patiently listening for the next couple of hours. I knew she was going to be my voice in Court.
I will be forever grateful for Liz Abdnour who took the time to listen to my story, her kindness and caring personality carried me through years of fighting for me and my children.
Thank you for all your help, Liz. You were a wonderful advocate, and I honestly believe we would not have had the same result without you.

Liz is an exceptional attorney. Her knowledge and integrity are enhanced by a charismatic personality. She built rapport quickly with the clients I referred to her - she was timely in communication and thorough in her investigations, and she made people feel comfortable talking to her.
Liz's understanding of the bigger context - the ‘spirit’ of the law - reassured me that my clients would feel respected and understood, even if the outcome was not in their favor. Her familiarity with the intricate details - the ‘letter’ of the law - made me feel confident in the process and outcome of her work. The clients I work with have experienced some form of trauma, and I take very seriously who I recommend. I don't have to think twice when it comes to recommending Liz. She is a wonderful attorney and a tremendous asset to our community.
When people need the assistance of an attorney, they are usually upset or overwhelmed in some way. They need someone they can trust to give them reliable information and perform in a skilled and professional way. Liz is experienced in Title IX and other forms of educational/employment rights, which is an increasingly relevant yet under-resourced service in our community. What other attorneys are just now paying attention to, Liz has been an expert in for years.

Liz is one of the best public interest attorneys/advocates and litigators I know. Disadvantaged clients often have several legal issues in need of resolution simultaneously. Liz is skilled at developing creative solutions, including litigation and non-litigation strategies and collaborative advocacy, to meet the needs of her clients. She is also bilingual and provides exceptional legal representation to the Spanish speaking clients.
Not only does she exhibit expertise and compassion in her individual client representation, but she is also committed to social justice and issues important to her client base. This is evidenced by her features in the media and community presentations on immigration, domestic violence and family law issues.
Liz is also a very supportive colleague and dedicated to making a positive impact on young legal professionals and the legal community as a whole.

I have had the pleasure to work with Ms. Abdnour and attend her trainings and presentations. You will learn the right questions to ask during an interview, to drafting complex analysis and making the right decision based on the evidence. Ms. Abdnour is considered an expert in the field of workplace investigations. Ms. Abdnour has the skills, experience and background for teaching you how to conduct effective Title IX and Civil Rights compliance investigations.
Dustyn Coontz, Esq.
I know Liz from working down the hall from her in a shared work space. In an environment like that, you get to know people and their work. I learned from Liz about her highly specialized practice in helping families secure the education their children deserve. I learned that she’s quite good at what she does. I learned that she cares about her work and the people she serves. I’m also a lawyer, and as a lawyer I tend to get leads for cases I personally can’t help with. As soon as I hear the words “education,” “IEP,” or “504 plan,” I tell the person they need to talk to Liz. If your child isn’t getting the educational services they need from their school, call Liz.

Liz is a tireless advocate on behalf of her clients, and an energetic and dynamic colleague. Liz is well respected in the Greater Cincinnati area as a legal expert in domestic relations and special education rights. She is capable of delivering successful results for her clients, even under very demanding circumstances. In 2013, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Liz on a presentation for a national conference of special education advocates. During our collaboration, I saw first hand that Liz is detail oriented, a creative thinker, and a strong public speaker. Liz also demonstrated that she writes with clarity and persuasiveness.
