Bailey Glasser’s Elizabeth Stryker was featured in the most recent edition of West Virginia Lawyer along with her husband, Wes Prince of Shaffer Madia Law, to discuss their joint commitment to pro bono work.
Liz and Wes’ dedication to giving back began with their involvement in legal clinics while law students at West Virginia University College of Law. Liz began her legal pro bono work in the General Clinic, while Wes volunteered in the Child and Family Legal Clinic, where they both gained hands-on experience representing clients. Notably, Liz believes her work in the Legal Clinic gave her experience and the confidence to start practicing law.
“I still volunteer for pro bono opportunities like Tuesday Legal Connect because I like to think that my service is a way of paying West Virginians back for the support and education I received at the WVU College of Law,” Liz said. “I always leave the office with a smile on my face after [a volunteering] session because the callers are so grateful to talk to someone willing to listen.” “It’s a very refreshing experience to help someone feel heard and like [they matter].”
At Bailey Glasser, Liz is a member of the firm’s Personal Injury practice group where she represents victims and their family members whose lives have been impacted by severe or catastrophic injury or death, and she also litigates complex product liability matters. Liz is also a member of the Electronically Stored Information (ESI) practice group, which develops and assists with complex discovery and document review strategies across our firm.
