I spoke with Holly to ask advice in retaining an attorney for a civil matter. She spent close to twenty minutes... listening and providing information on civil matters pertaining to my case. With her sound advice/legal information I was able to make an educated decision on whether or not to pursue this case. Thank you for taking your time to talk with more

Ms. Holly represented me during my case. Holly was extremely helpful with the needs of my case and always ensured I... was being taking care of by my medical team. Along with Holly the Team at Elia Law Firm was very knowledgeable, prompt, professional, and most important compassionate. I received updates regularly regarding my case and explained to me in a way I would understand. This was the first time I had to deal with a car accident, pain, lots of doctor appointments, insurance companies, and lawyers. It required many different components to treat my pain and try to get me "back to normal". Holly made it easy where I did not have to deal with any of the hassle of getting visits approved or having to pay out of pocket. I was able to focus on getting better. I'm grateful to have come across her law firm.Thank you Holly and the Team!read more

We have had a relationship with Steve and his team for years as a part of our small business. In a complex Federal... case, which we were named as co-defendants, Steve was able to think outside of the box and bring all parties together (in person, at his office) in order to reach a fair settlement - saving tens of thousands of dollars for all who were involved. This is just one of many examples that speak to the experience level, professionalism and outstanding work performed by the Elias Law Firm on behalf of their clients. We highly more

Steve and Holly are legends, I'm so grateful I was referred to them from a good friend. I was hit on my motorcycle by... someone on their phone and it affected me with serious life changing injuries.

After months of not having any movement on my case for 9 months and being bullied with scare tactics, I decided to retain a new attorney. My goal was to find an aggressive bulldog as I was being attacked and accused of things that were simply untrue. Steven Elia and Maura Griffin stepped in and took care of business…Do not waste your time or finances on any other firm, speak with them first! …read more
