Licensed in both New York and New Jersey, Elan enjoys helping people and strives to make a difference in their lives by providing them with high-quality personal injury, family law, civil litigation, estate planning and real estate services.

“Thank you for always being the calm presence in the eye of my long and difficult storm,” said client Janet B. of West Babylon. “I am ever so grateful to you from the beginning of this story, right through to the end. There was never anyone in your office who wasn’t kind, gentle, and patient. It wasn’t just a legal experience; it became personal as well. May God bless you.”

Elan studied political science at Queens College and then obtained his law degree at the New York University School of Law. He passed bar admissions in New York in 1984 and in New Jersey in 1986.

He’s also a member of the Nassau County Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association for Justice.
