Elizabeth Aguilar is a construction paralegal for Plumtree & Associates. She works in all areas of construction law including construction defect defense, CSLB license defense, and Plaintiff’s side mechanic’s lien/breach of contract cases.
Elizabeth was always intrigued with building things. In high school, she took a class on architectural drafting where she designed a residential house and constructed a model with an exacto knife and chip board.
After high school, Elizabeth went to the Institute of Drafting and Design Engineering (IDDE) were she earned a certificate in mechanical drafting/engineering.
At that time, computer-aided drafting was just coming onto the scene and Elizabeth was one of the first persons to be trained. Due to this, she was hired by Rockwell where she assisted in the design of the B1, MX missiles, and the Space Shuttle.
After Rockwell, she took her skills into the classroom as a teacher for the next two decades. When the Great Recession cut all education budgets, she obtained a paralegal certificate at Cerritos College. Fittingly, her son’s experience as a C-10 electrical contractor inspired her to specialize in construction law.
