About Liz McCausland

Liz McCausland was a partner in a mid-sized insurance defense firm when she took a good look at her life and decided she had strayed from all the reasons she became a lawyer. Although she enjoyed trial work, her need to be of service to others was not satisfied with her career path. This realization moved Liz to leave law firm life and start Liz McCausland PA where she concentrates on bankruptcy and mediation. Liz’s niche of bankruptcy mortgage modification mediation has resulted in her mediating over 4,000 mediations in 5 different states using remote and cloud-based technology.

A proud double gator grad from the University of Florida, Liz has practiced law for over 25 years.  She is a Past President of the Orange County Bar Association, serves on the Executive Council of the Florida Bar’s Solo/ Small Firm Section, and has been a speaker at several conferences and podcasts.  Liz also travels throughout the US teaching other attorneys and mediators how to successfully obtain and mediate mortgage modifications in bankruptcy.  


 A self-proclaimed gadget geek, Liz has never met an app she didn’t try.
