Elizabeth A. Steinhauer-Clark
Born in Fairfield, California, but raised here in the heart of the great Central Valley, Elizabeth “Liz” Steinhauer-Clark joined the firm in January of 2000, shortly after being admitted to the California Bar. Liz graduated from the University of Southern California in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts degree (cum laude) in Political Science. After her four years in Los Angeles, Liz packed her bags and left for Sacramento, where she attended the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. In 1999, Liz graduated in the top 5% of her class at McGeorge and in the process earned admission to the Traynor Honor Society and the Order of the Coif.
Liz’s practice emphasizes business and tax related matters, with a special interest in agricultural matters. In particular her practice includes business planning (including planning for Bureau of Reclamation and Farm Service Agency matters), land sales and leasing, Bureau of Reclamation and Farm Service Agency program compliance, and representing both landowners and land trusts in the grant of conservation easements.
Liz is a member of the Fresno County Farm Bureau and Fresno County Bar Association (Agricultural Law Section). Liz is also a part of the Fresno County Farm Bureau’s Future Advocates for Agriculture Concerned about Tomorrow (FAACT) Leadership Development Class VII for 2009-10.
In their spare time, Liz and her husband Ben are the proud owners of Bright Dawn Ranch, where they tend their herd of pygmy goats, sheep, chickens and ducks.
