About Meneray Family Law LLC
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. I know that you want to make careful choices when selecting legal representation, so allow me to introduce myself.
I am Elizabeth Stevenson Meneray, born in New Orleans Louisiana at Baptist Hospital. I grew up on the Westbank and attended John Ehret High School, where I first encountered the law as a member of its premier Mock Trial Competition Team. Although I had been an avid student journalist in high school and was expected to write for a career, I took the fire for the law that was kindled that spring semester and carried it with me to the University of New Orleans, where I majored in Political Science on a pre-law track.
At UNO, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree along with a Certificate of Paralegal Studies, thinking that I would test the waters of the legal field before diving into the deep end that was law school. Little did I know I would practice as a paralegal for 15 years before finally braving those waters, when Hurricane Katrina finally kicked me out of the boat!
I entered Loyola University New Orleans School of Law with the perspective of someone who had already worked very hard and accomplished a great deal, but who believed she could contribute so much more but for the lack of this degree. In the years leading up to law school, I had begun to volunteer more vigorously, to take greater part in my community, and to work more closely with those who gave part of themselves to make New Orleans a better place. The education I received at Loyola was grounded in service of others, and the pursuit of education as a means to that service.
It was at Loyola that I found my passion for the “Persons practice” that was to become Meneray Family Law. As a student in the Loyola Family Law Clinic, I worked closely with families facing divorce, children caught in custody battles, elderly people bound by the red tape of the Road Home program. I found there were solutions to their problems, and as an attorney I was able to make those solutions happen for them. It was an incredible feeling to know that I could help, that I had found the tools to make things go right for people whose lives didn’t often work out so well. It was with pleasure in my third year that I accepted an award from the Association of Women Attorneys as the outstanding student family law practitioner.
Today, I have begun to work for you. I started Meneray Family Law in an effort to serve people with needs in the areas of divorce, custody, tutorship, emancipation, child support, adoption, wills and successions. I would like to sit down and talk with you about your concerns, about what’s important to you.
very competent & professional service
I highly recommend Meneray Family Law LLC. Elizabeth Meneray guided me to the most efficient and effective solution for my legal matter. Her work is very organized.
Hire her while you can!
I have had to hire Liz twice and have not been disappointed at all! She is friendly, caring, easy-going yet tough and protective when needed. She knows the law, works hard, is always prepared and therefore is successful! Family law is so personal, she is a perfect match with her approachable genuine compassion, professionalism, knowledge and experience. I highly, highly recommend her and would/will hire her again! You should too while you can!
High quality service, very professional, and they actually care!
Mrs. Meneray actually took my custody/child support case through the Pro Bono project. The last thing I expected to happen, was get a lawyer that actually cared about me or my situation because of this. From day 1, I saw that this wasn't the case. My situation was not easily resolved either, but she kept with it. She refused to leave me hanging, like so many lawyers had already done! I couldn't be happier that she was the one who took my case. I don't know what I could've ever accomplished if she hadn't. Thank you, Liz! If I ever need someone in the furture, she is the first person I will call and I was suggest her to everyone looking for a Family Lawyer! 5+ stars.
Excellent Legal Service
Liz Meneray gave me excellent advice, and more importantly she really listened to my concerns and needs. She helped my husband and I reach an equitable agreement for our divorce. I did quite a bit of research and it really paid off by finding Liz. I wanted an attorney who is interested in getting the best results for her client, not just racking up billable hours. Liz is a good honest person, and she made getting through a difficult time a lot less stressful. I've never had to use an attorney before, and I was very concerned about costs and results. She kept the costs down, and got me the results I needed. I highly recommend her law firm. She is a great attorney!
Professional and Friendly
Ms. Meneray was the perfect lawyer I was looking for. She made my case an easy and headache free process. She was thorough and took her time to make sure I was satisfied with every visit. Highly recommend her!
Caring, thorough, and efficient in dealing with divorce proceedings.
Professional, friendly and wonderful at what she does
I am a client of Mrs. Meneray's and have known her for almost 20 years. If I didn't have every confidence in her as an attorney, I would never have hired her - friend or not. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of counsel. Liz is an active listener who contemplates her client's options very carefully. She is extremely professional, hard working, knowledgeable, and can play hardball with the best of them. She is a straight-shooter who will be honest from the get go and not just take your hard earned money and tell you what you want to hear. Divorce and child custody cases are messy for everyone involved. You owe it to yourself (and those relying on you) to retain the best representation available. Liz Meneray is that person.
For the last 3 years Elizabeth has been lawyer and I must say out of all my previous lawyers she is the best. Elizabeth lets you know tyour rights and prepares you for the worst case situation. She is a lwayer that actualy cares about her clients. I honestly do not know what I would have done with out here as my lawyer. Elizabeth works hard and really invest her time to make sure you win your case. I hope to continue working with Elizabeth in the years to come.
Professionally and friendly
Meneray Family Law has been fighting for me throughout the court in Jefferson parish since my divorce from my ex-husband. She took care of my children's custody and their child support and community property. I recommend Meneray Family Law group to handle and care for you during time of need throughout the state of Louisiana.
