Our Team

Elizabeth Goodman

Managing Principal

With over 15 years of experience in law and government relations, Liz combines big-picture vision with intellect and attention to detail to build teams, effect change, and ultimately reach her clients’ goals, whether incremental or monumental. She believes that civil discourse is the key to sound policy solutions and prides herself on the ability to find connection and common ground across divides. Her record speaks for itself, having secured numerous legislative victories for vastly unique clients. Her proudest victories include securing a statewide college tuition waiver for children in foster care and championing legislation that reduces the prevalence of surprise out-of-network billing practices.

Liz holds a J.D. from Albany Law School, where she developed an interest in public health and policy through her work serving clients living with terminal illnesses and representing inmates in civil suits, often involving access to health care. Her policy expertise was honed while serving as Counsel in the New York State Senate and then as Staff Attorney at the Arizona House of Representatives, where she advised policymakers on a full range of issues including child welfare, domestic relations, health, and criminal justice reform. Liz was part of the bipartisan group of advisors responsible for shepherding Medicaid expansion through the Arizona Legislature and was among the team of aides who negotiated the terms of the new Department of Child Safety, Arizona’s revamped child protection agency.

Liz maintains a personal commitment to community service. She serves on the Board of Directors of Local First Arizona and remains committed to child welfare causes, providing volunteer representation to children and families through Community Legal Services and volunteer legislative representation to several child welfare organizations. She maintains a strong connection with her undergraduate alma mater, Northern Arizona University, where she previously served on the Alumni Board of Directors and regularly guest lectures.
