Women's HERstory Month Spotlight

In honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate the achievements of Elizabeth Ingram, an extraordinary legal leader. Elizabeth was born in Trinidad and raised in New Jersey, She attended college at the College of New Jersey where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology. Elizabeth moved to Durham, North Carolina to attend law school at North Carolina Central University School of Law. She graduated with her Juris Doctorate in 2000 and has been practicing criminal law since 2001.

Elizabeth has been in public service since 2007, when she started work at the Durham County public defender’s office. She worked there for 13 years as an assistant public defender, representing indigent citizens of Durham charged with crimes. For the last four years, Elizabeth has been an assistant district attorney for Durham’s 16th Prosecutorial District. She started prosecuting violent crimes and homicides and is now leading the drug and property crime team which consists of three attorneys and two legal assistants.

Elizabeth is a mother of two daughters, ages 13 and 18. She enjoys travelling, music and dancing. Her story is a powerful reminder of the potential within each of us to achieve our dreams and make a difference. As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we honor her and all the women who continue to break barriers and inspire others.
