Elizabeth A. Yohe specializes in Workers’ Compensation matters in Florida. She represents numerous public employers in law enforcement and education as well as private employers in the construction, restaurant and hospitality, medical, and food industries. Elizabeth also represents insurance carriers, third party administrators, and professional employer organizations. She regularly appears at hearings, conducts depositions, handles settlements and takes matters to trial. Elizabeth strives to mitigate her client’s risk exposure by implementing cost-effective solutions.
For a medical group client, Elizabeth successfully defended against a complex workers’ compensation claim to demonstrate that the claimant failed to meet her burden, which did not result in workers’ compensation benefits being awarded. When a law enforcement client was faced with a claim for costly surgery, Elizabeth successfully defended against the claim by showing that the claimant’s expert had not properly evaluated the key medical evidence.
Earlier in her career Elizabeth gained extensive experience in the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). While at the DOL, she conducted several high profile investigations of civil and criminal matters along with public outreach efforts. Elizabeth then joined the FBI as an Intelligence Analyst. Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in History from DePaul University with Honors. She went on to receive her law degree from Tulane Law School, where she was selected to represent clients pro bono at The Civil Litigation Clinic providing much needed legal assistance to the community.
Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her family and rescue dogs, as well as cooking and baking.
