Managing Attorney + Small Business Owner
As a small business owner herself, Liz takes pride in helping build and grow local startups and small businesses. Nothing makes her happier than setting up an LLC, drafting an operating agreement, and then watching a company grow into a real live business and pillar of the community. Our clients are changing the way Charlotte does business-- bringing healthy lifestyle brands, exciting educational experiences, expert-level IT consulting, and killer fashion design to the Queen City. We couldn't be more proud.
Because our business clients know Liz has got their back, they know they can reach her when it matters most. Need to talk through a difficult employee termination conversation before the meeting? Liz is happy to help. Want to double-check that
your company's operating agreement does not actually authorize your business partner to finance a new Bentley on the company dime? She'd lean towards "no," but it's still worth pulling up the file, reviewing it, and making sure he's playing by the rules. Sometimes running a business is amazing, and sometimes it's absolutely terrifying. Whatever it is for you right now, you don't have to go it alone.

Victoria O'Dell is our paralegal extraordinaire here at Vennum Law. She joined the Vennum team in August 2019. She graduated from the Paralegal Technology program at Central Piedmont Community College in December 2019. Victoria was born and raised in Charlotte, so she is very familiar with the area, specifically the Pineville/Matthews side of town. After obtaining her Bachelor's from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she spent several years in the Virginia Beach, VA area making new friends and enjoying what beach life had to offer, but is glad to be back home! When Victoria isn't at the office, she enjoys reading, all things history related, music, and cheering on her sports teams (UNCC 49ers, UNC Tar Heels, Atlanta Braves, and Carolina Panthers to be exact!). Victoria also has two fur kids that keep her busy as well. She has her dog, Lola, and her cat, Merlin. Both are very loved and very spoiled.
