Eliot’s approach to law is scientific: thorough, careful, methodical and proven to work.
That’s because, before entering the legal realm, Eliot studied graduate-level chemistry. This gave him a unique technical understanding of the legal complexities that can surround product liability, consumer law, construction defects, medical malpractice suits and more.
Eliot more sharply understands experts in our fields of practice and can brilliantly dissect the arguments of opposing attorneys who might not have as intimate of an understanding of engineering processes or medical technologies. He can condense and simplify complex information and package it for judges and juries — which tends to secure the best outcomes for clients, whether they’re Fortune 500 companies or individuals.
As an associate at Schlichter & Shonack, Eliot has served our clients with equal parts knowledge and compassion.
Eliot obtained his JD from the USC Gould School of Law, where he wrote for the Interdisciplinary Law Journal. Before that, he studied chemistry at UC Berkeley and BYU. He is admitted to the California Bar, State Court, and the Central, Eastern and Southern districts of California.
Eliot is an active member of his church. When he isn’t working, he’s spending time with his wife and three little children — or sneaking in some college football.
