Elizabeth Smith Chavez

Not afraid to get my hands dirty!

Elizabeth Smith Chavez graduated summa cum laude from The University of San Diego Law School, and then gained invaluable knowledge by working with a large law firm. After 36 years of experience in a variety of legal settings, Liz decided to open her own firm specializing in real estate conflict resolution, business litigation, probate litigation, and oil and gas. One of her greatest motivations is to represent individuals and small businesses, who often prefer a more personalized approach than large firms typically provide. Several decades of experience have helped Liz to develop a large network of legal connections in the San Diego area. Martindale Hubbell. has given Ms. Smith-Chavez its highest rating (AV) for 25 straight years.

While her primary area of practice focuses on real estate litigation, Liz has led numerous seminars and classes on the topic. She is also the lead co-author of “Real Property Litigation”, a three-volume set of books about real estate law and conflict resolution practices.

Liz is the President of the National Association of Women Business Owners- San Diego, and has served as the chair of the Real Property Section of the San Diego Bar Association. Community service is a very important part of her life, and she has served on the boards of San Diego City College Foundation, Mercy Hospital Auxiliary, the Mercy Hospital Foundation, and the YWCA of San Diego and Imperial County. Liz has been recognized numerous times for her professional and civic contributions, and was granted the Women Who Mean Business Award.
