Prior to joining Dvorak Law Offices, Liza attended Chicago-Kent College of Law. During this time, she worked as a law clerk at another prominent Chicago-based civil rights law firm, where she focused on cases of wrongfully arrested and imprisoned individuals, people who had been subjected to excessive force and police brutality, families who lost loved ones at the hands of police, cases of political activists, and cases of criminal defendants.

After joining Dvorak Law Offices, Liza has continued her work in protecting people’s civil rights and fighting for the freedom of incarcerated individuals.  Liza uses every aspect of her legal interests in her work as an appellate and post-conviction attorney – scouring transcripts and records, locating essential evidence and witnesses, identifying sources of trial errors and constitutional violations, and working directly with her clients and their loved ones to secure their way home.   As a civil rights attorney, Liza continuously demonstrates her dedication to her clients in pursuing justice from harms caused by police departments, the government, and other institutions.   

Liza is admitted to practice in Illinois and in the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois.
