Elliot is an associate in the firm’s Houston office whose practice focuses on general civil and commercial litigation. Elliot has experience handling cases involving a variety of matters, including complex litigation, insurance coverage and defense, and real estate.
Elliot joined the firm after completing his clerkship with The Honorable Randy Crane, U.S. District Judge in the Southern District of Texas, who handles one of the busiest dockets in the nation. Prior to his clerkship, Elliot practiced as an immigration attorney in Northern Virginia, specializing in claims of political asylum and withholding of removal from asylees fleeing South and Central America.
During law school, Elliot was a staff editor on the Georgetown Law Technology Review and an executive editor and contributor on the law school’s own newspaper, the Georgetown Law Weekly. Elliot was fortunate enough to study under renowned practitioners and jurists, some of whom have become household names. Elliot took full advantage of the resources provided to him and was able to extern at a national civil liberties litigation firm, the United States House of Representatives, and for both state and federal judges.
Outside of the office, Elliot spends time with his wife and two rescued cats, Judge and Leo. Elliot is an avid sports fan and is often found at Houston Cougars and Houston Texans games, or cheering on his beloved F.C. Barcelona from a distance.
Elliot is professionally fluent in Spanish and is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia and New York.
*Elliot is not yet licensed in Texas, so any work he performs on Texas cases is done at the direction and under the supervision of licensed Texas attorneys.
