Liz Halabu Casselman, Esq.

Liz clerked for Halabu P.C. during her final year of law school in 2014, joined as an associate after passing the bar in 2015, and made partner in 2018. Liz’s focus is real estate law, specifically guiding clients through the title insurance and closing process.

She leverages her legal knowledge and extensive underwriting experience to clear issues that cloud title, including navigating issues such as probate, estate planning, foreclosure, invalid deeds, and lien resolution, to eliminate risks for both buyers and sellers.

Liz also advises clients on 1031 exchanges as a Certified Exchange Specialist, and facilitates the exchanges in-house. She specializes in structuring reverse and improvement exchanges, allowing her clients the opportunity to take advantage of the lucrative and little-known tax incentive. Additionally, she provides Continuing Legal Education courses to real estate professionals on 1031 exchanges to promote wider understanding and knowledge around the subject.

She serves as Chair of the Title Agent and Associate Member Committee and as Chair of the Education Committee, both for the Michigan Land Title Association, and is active in the American Land Title Association, having spoken numerous times for both associations.
