Topic: Lessons from Challenging Cases: Dealing with Trauma, Safety Issues, Difficult Personalities, and the Media

Lisa Elliott reflects on her career and shares the hard-earned lessons she has learned from the difficult, high-profile cases she has worked on. 

Speaker: Lisa Elliott

Lisa launched Elliott Law Offices in 1995 with a solid legal foundation developed while clerking for a Court of Appeals Judge, followed by working for Arthur, Chapman and McDonough in Minneapolis. Once on her own, Lisa’s client base expanded to include individuals in family law, estate planning and probate. Lisa’s solid legal background and interpersonal skills, along with her incredible work ethic and commitment to building and maintaining relationships are a true asset to her clients. These qualities prove invaluable as she guides them through the litigation process to achieve their goals. She strives to ease the emotional and financial challenges of litigation by utilizing alternatives to trial, such as mediation, Social Early Neutral Evaluation and Financial Early Neutral Evaluation. Whether a case goes to trial or alternative dispute resolution, Lisa always remains a strong advocate for her clients.

While Lisa is engaged in a general practice of law, including areas such as general litigation, and estate planning, her practice focuses primarily in two areas:

  • Representing individuals and families in all matters of family law, including marriage dissolution, paternity, custody and adoption. Lisa has extensive experience in successfully representing clients in high conflict custody disputes and cases involving complex financial and property issues.
  • Defense of sellers and manufacturers in toxic tort litigation, including L-tryptophan, asbestos, and silica sand.
