Liz Alpert is a family law attorney in Sarasota, Florida. She has been practicing in Sarasota since her admission to the Florida Bar in September 2006. Liz graduated from Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida in December 2005.

Liz grew up the oldest of eight children. Her father was a long-distance truck driver and her mother stayed at home to raise the children. Neither of Liz’s parents attended college. But, that didn’t stop Liz—she was determined to get her college degree. While raising three daughters, she achieved her goal after taking classes on and off for more than 17 years. Liz graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Florida in 1995.

However, Liz had another dream—to become an attorney. Again, she worked and planned and finally achieved her goal.

As a family law attorney, Liz served on the Florida Bar Support Issues Committee and for a time as the chair of a committee that was working on an alimony guideline formula.

Liz has also found time to give back to her local community. In 2003, Liz was appointed to the City of Sarasota’s Human Relations Board where she served until 2007. She was then appointed to the City’s General Personnel/Civil Service Board where she served until her election to the Sarasota City Commission on May 12, 2015.
