Elliot is a Fellow in the American Board of Trial Advocates, selected by his peers as a leading trial attorney. He is also a Certified Civil Trial Specialist, certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association.

He is a veteran of more than 50 jury trials. Elliot particularly enjoys the process of picking a jury and is comfortable with the unscripted conversations needed to find the best jurors for his case. He also very much enjoys the opportunity to present his client’s case with compelling stories and zealous advocacy.
Deeply committed to his clients, Elliot recognizes the great privilege he has been given when he is entrusted with their future. His success is based on his ability to connect with his clients to make them feel that their story is being heard and he is determined that his clients never feel as though they were left behind.
