Liz is an associate in the firm’s whistleblower representation group. Liz’s practice is focused on representing whistleblowers under the federal False Claims Act and numerous state law equivalents, and the whistleblower programs of the Internal Revenue Service, Securities and Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and Department of Transportation. Liz is part of the legal team pursuing a qui tam case against UnitedHealth Group alleging the nation’s largest Medicare Advantage Organization for payment to the Medicare Program by improperly inflating its members’ risk scores, a practice known as risk adjustment fraud. She is also involved in Constantine Cannon’s pro bono project representing incarcerated individuals in compassionate release cases.
Liz graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2019. Liz was a student attorney at the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, where she represented clients in housing and wage theft cases and served as the Practice Group Leader for the wage practice.

Before joining Constantine Cannon, Liz completed a two-year Skadden fellowship as a Staff Attorney at Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, where she represented low-income patient families in a Medical-Legal Partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. While at Community Legal Services, Liz was on the litigation team representing Pennsylvania food stamp recipients in Gilliam v. USDA.

She also represented low-income Philadelphians in employment and public benefits matters.
