Elie grew up in the small community of Scranton, Pennsylvania, and spent much of his childhood visiting family in Ohio and New York City.  The sense of working for and within a community has translated across his legal career.  He received Honors at Entrance to law school based on public service, and earned a student service scholarship award while attending law school.  Elie graduated law school with distinction in May 2014 and was inducted into the Traynor Honors Society, and currently serves on the Board for the Leonard M. Friedman Bar Association and Sacramento County Bar Association.


Elie has practiced mainly within the firm’s law and motion practice and frequently helps prepare for and participate in trial.  His experience in civil litigation has involved business, employment, contract, malpractice, and personal injury cases.
