Aliza Anvari, Esquire is a licensed attorney in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Stockton University and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Nebraska College of Law.
In law school, Aliza was a Moot Court Quarterfinalist, twice a Finalist in Client Counseling Competitions and even advanced to the American Bar Association’s Regional Client Counseling Competition.
Aliza served as a Prosecutor in northern NH for nearly seven years, strategically prosecuting hundreds of violation and misdemeanors, juvenile-related matters and felony cases for probable cause hearings and grand jury indictments. She argued at arraignments and bail hearings, drafted legal pleadings, conducted officer examinations at administrative license suspension hearings and participated in numerous training courses.
During her time of public service, Aliza graduated from the 251ST Part Time NH Police Academy and was acknowledged for her spearheading efforts in establishing a Littleton District Mental Health Court designed to reduce recidivism, save taxpayer money and keep non-violent offenders out of jail while they undergo mental health treatment. Additionally, she was recognized and awarded citations for “Outstanding and Invaluable Service” from the Littleton Police Department. Fun fact: as part of her experience with the police department, Aliza volunteered to demonstrate the use of a taser gun by being on the receiving end!
Prior to serving as a Prosecutor, Aliza served as a law clerk for the Honorable Albert H. Weeks, Cheshire County Probate Judge in Keene, NH. She assisted drafting orders relating to estate planning, name changes, guardianships, parental rights, adoptions and involuntary commitments. This training served her well in 2016-2017 while employed by T.W. Stevens Law Firm, PLLC, a family law firm in Portsmouth, NH.
More recently, Aliza has been working in Avon, NJ for the Law Office of Jill Elaine Greene LLC in the areas of Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury and Criminal Defense.
In her spare time, Aliza enjoys murder mystery movies, podcasts and public speaking. She is a member of the Central NJ Chapter of Sisters in Crime and participates in a weekly Neptune writing group. Another fun fact: when she was in college, Aliza co-hosted her own live, call-in, public access television talk show called “YakBack.”
Attorney Anvari is thrilled to be back in NJ, especially by the Shore, and utilizing her litigation skills with Stolfe Zeigler.
