Lizzie Lee joined Garrison, Levin-Epstein in 2018 as an employment and civil rights advocate. She represents clients facing discrimination and retaliation, unemployment compensation challenges, and employment contract issues. While there is no employee issue she doesn’t tackle, she is particularly passionate about combatting racial inequality and eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace. When there’s a need, she welcomes using her Spanish language skills to advocate for clients.
Prior to working at the Garrison firm, Lizzie served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Vanessa L. Bryant of the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut from 2016 through 2018. Before her clerkship, Lizzie worked at a corporate law firm in Boston where she was a member of the trial team that won a complete acquittal on federal health care fraud charges.
Lizzie earned her law degree from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, where she was the Co-Founder of the Berkeley Immigration Group. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University in Comparative Ethnic Studies. Her undergraduate education focused on the complexities of race relations in the United States, and she views it as the foundation for her constant pursuit of social justice and equal rights.
Outside of the law, Lizzie volunteers with New Haven’s Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS). She also loves to play soccer, tennis and ultimate frisbee; explore the great outdoors, and cook Korean food.
Elisabeth Lee is licensed to practice law in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. She is a member of the District of Connecticut’s Federal Grievance Committee.
