Elizabeth F. Schwartz

Elizabeth F. Schwartz served as co-counsel on the case challenging Florida’s same-sex marriage ban brought by the National Center for Lesbian Rights on behalf of six same-sex couples seeking the right to marry (Pareto v. Ruvin). This lawsuit resulted in Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel’s finding that Florida’s same-sex marriage ban deprived same-sex couples due process and equal protection under the law, and in the ordering of Miami-Dade county to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Publications include Before I Do: A Legal Guide to Marriage, Gay and Otherwise; Transgender Discrimination, Trial Magazine (American Association for Justice, Oct. 2016); Out and About: LGBT Experience in the Profession, Trailblazing Advocacy (American Bar Association, 2015).
