Attorney Profile

In courtrooms and before administrative bodies, Elias is a reputable and proven advocate. Born and raised in Las Vegas, he has deep seated relationships in the community and is often retained in complex matters that require creativity, influence, and government relations.  Developers and businesses regularly call on Elias to guide them through their licensing matters, land use and zoning process, and business disputes.  His advocacy experience includes representing developers before county and municipal governments, and aggressively litigating commercial disputes in state business and federal court.  

One of Elias's early mentors was Chief Judge Jennifer Togliatti, for whom he clerked for a year. Thereafter, he joined the Las Vegas office of a regional law firm, where he handled business disputes, shareholder and partnership matters, and other commercial litigation cases. He was later hired by the City Attorney of the city of Las Vegas as a deputy to manage many of the city's high-profile lawsuits in state and federal court. During that time, Elias worked extensively with the Planning Department and Business Licensing on land use and zoning issues as well as liquor and cannabis licensing matters. 

Elias attended UNLV where he majored in Economics and received his B.A., magna cum laude. He pursued his legal education at the William S. Boyd School of Law where was awarded his J.D., cum laude. He now serves as an adjunct professor at his law school alma mater since 2017, and has had numerous articles published on topics related to his practice area.

Elias is licensed to practice in Nevada and New York.
