Elizabeth works with education entities throughout Mississippi and the Southeast, including school districts, community colleges and universities. She counsels education entities in how to follow state and federal laws and how to do so professionally and with compassion, particularly with cases involving students and employees. She has been a hearing officer for school employee disciplinary hearings and testified in trial regarding investigations she conducted. She has advised education entities on such matters as student discipline, employee and student First Amendment issues, contracts, Title IX compliance, responding to OCR and EEOC complaints, counseling governing boards, policy development, public bidding issues, and conducting investigations into employee and student complaints of harassment, discrimination, and bullying.

Elizabeth Lee Maron advises clients in the areas of education law and employment law. Her primary focus is defending companies and public entities in lawsuits filed by current and former employees and sometimes, in the case of education entities, by students and their families. She also has real estate experience handling timber transactions.

She works closely with personnel directors and — in the case of smaller employers — managers charged with personnel decisions or enforcement of such decisions. She is a frequent speaker on employment and education issues and provides training for clients on avoiding harassment and discrimination claims, on FMLA, FLSA and ADA compliance, and on conducting defensible investigations into complaints. Her work includes employment litigation of all types.
