Southern California’s Top Litigator

He recognizes the importance of conveying a favorable narrative to the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office and advises professionals to retain counsel the moment federal agents start asking questions.

Eliot has earned a reputation as one of the top litigators in Southern California and in many cases, he has successfully persuaded the government to close investigations against his clients with no findings of any wrongdoing.

Avoid Potential Pitfalls with Experienced Oversight

Eliot consults with clients on proper business practices regularly to avoid appearances of impropriety while addressing problems before they trigger a criminal investigation.

He also provides oversight so that professionals can focus on business without the worry of regulatory violations. Eliot can dive into a case and quickly uncover business practices that may appear to violate federal law, unbeknownst to clients.

Additional Experience & Education

Before graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School, Eliot earned a Ph.D. in philosophy from The Johns Hopkins University. He chose to pursue litigation to make a difference in people’s lives.
“Our clients’ lives are turned upside down. I get to know them well, and I want to help,” Eliot said. “Ending an investigation or getting the government to return money wrongfully seized is incredibly satisfying, and I will stop at nothing to obtain the best possible result.”
