Pennie Elizabeth Helms

Back to all attorneys

Elizabeth represents employers and business owners in a wide variety of employment law matters. She has been practicing law in state and federal court since being admitted to the California bar in 2008. Elizabeth’s legal experience includes business and real estate litigation representing both plaintiffs and defendants. While she assisted her business clients in various litigation, she realized her clients were having difficulty navigating the complex employment laws here in California and developed an interest and passion for counseling clients on employment law matters. Previously a licensed property and casualty insurance broker/agent, she understands risk management and effective strategies for clients to avoid risk.

Elizabeth enjoys traveling, especially to other countries. She and her husband Jim are eagerly planning a “bucket list” trip to Europe to participate in a guided tour of WWII battle sites. In the meantime, she loves to talk about the 13+ countries she has visited thus far, especially Israel and China.
