Elizabeth Swanberg is a staff attorney in the North Washington regions and serves the Bellingham, Burlington, and Marysville offices.

Professional Overview

Elizabeth started her journey with GLP Attorneys as a Legal Assistant in 2020. This was the first time she was exposed to personal injury law. During that time, she was asked to call clients, and some of those clients shared their stories with her. Even through a phone, she could sense the struggles that these individuals endured and suffered, and knew she wanted to help.

Those interactions stuck with her, and for that reason, she stayed with GLP attorneys. Elizabeth returned as an intern in 2022,  so she could keep helping those who had been unfairly harmed and injured by the negligence of others.
