Attorney Profile

Elizabeth A. Wolff is a managing attorney at the Albany, New York, office of Finkelstein & Partners, LLP, a personal injury firm based in Newburgh, New York. Mrs. Wolff is a tenacious and insightful attorney who practices primarily in the area of personal injury. In the six years since she joined the firm, she has settled thousands of automobile accident cases on behalf of individuals in the Albany community. Her committed service to her clients and high level of preparation strongly reflects the thorough and communication-centered approach unique to the firm, which involves pairing each client with a team containing a lead attorney and case manager who communicates one-on-one with the client every step of the way.

Dedicated to remaining informed in the ever-changing field of personal injury in order to provide her clients with the most up-to-date legal counsel, Mrs. Wolff has attended numerous continuing education courses on a broad range of personal injury topics, including spinal injury litigation, Medicare liens, labor law, tort and insurance law, and ethics. In addition, to more thoroughly respond to the needs of her elderly clients and their families, she has taken classes on alternative methods for financing long-term care, VA Disability Compensation matters and nursing home litigation.

Mrs. Wolff received her undergraduate degree at Hofstra University. She then taught Spanish to elementary school students before moving to Boston to pursue her legal career. She received her Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School, graduating with great honors. After landing a prestigious internship with the state attorney general's office, Ms. Wolff then entered into practice in Albany. She is admitted to practice before the state courts for New York and Massachusetts, and she is an active member of the New York State Bar Association.

Mrs. Wolff actively participates in our anti-texting and driving presentations where she speaks to high school students about the dangers of texting while driving. She has reached out to over 1,500 students so far in an effort to end distracted driving.

  • No Txt Zone / Commit to Quit: Research shows that people under the age of 24 are the most likely to text and drive. Because new drivers are inexperienced, they are also the most at risk to becoming involved in a car crash. The Commit to Quit program was initiated with the goal of making young people aware of the risks and encouraging them to make the choice to not text and drive.
