Elizabeth Jean Van Thiel

Oceanside, California
I have been a licensed attorney since December 2000. Prior to entering private practice, I worked for the Alternate Public Defender's Office representing parents and children in Juvenile Dependency Court. Today I continue my work with children and families in the private sector. As a child I had a very close relationship with grandparents so, I am also passionate about grandparent rights and relative guardianship cases. I am accustomed to dealing with clients that are going through difficult times. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help my clients resolve their personal and legal issues every day.
