Liz R. Phillips


From Smithie to techie to attorney, Liz grew up near Smithville, Ohio, and began her professional career as a software engineer. In 2015, after several years in technology, she chose to pursue her ambition of attending law school. She joined CRUG in 2016 as a law clerk, and as an attorney in 2018.

Liz appreciates the variety and strategy involved in civil litigation. She values efficiency, creativity, and thoroughness in her work.

Liz now resides in Wadsworth, Ohio with her husband, Tim and their cat, Leo. She and Tim enjoy kayaking, shooting sports, biking, and anything else that gets them outdoors. They are also avid fans of the Cleveland Indians. Liz also spends time running, baking, and reading (when Leo allows it).
