About me

I am Elliott Louis Pell, a dedicated, experienced lawyer admitted to practice in New Jersey since 1976 and in New York since 1980. Throughout my career, I have maintained a diverse litigation practice, achieving numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts in complex and controversial cases. After decades as a premier counselor and litigator in other law firms, and after a decade as an Adjunct Professor of Law, I now operate my own litigation practice based in Florham Park, New Jersey.

A Northern And Central New Jersey Attorney Accomplished In Diverse Litigation Matters

My central practice areas are business and commercial litigation, including real estate and contract disputes; divorce and family law; employment disputes and litigation; and personal injury claims and lawsuits. From individual representation in breach of contract cases to high-profile class-action lawsuits, I build compelling arguments and strategies based on extensive legal knowledge. I pour my energies into asserting and defending my clients' rights.

My professional peers' recognition of my credentials, abilities and ethical principles has led to honors such as my inclusion in New Jersey Super Lawyers for 2010 through 2013 and an AV Preeminent* rating, the highest possible rating under Martindale-Hubbell's peer review system.

Strategic, Hard-Driving Representation For People Across The Cultural Spectrum

I have enjoyed the privilege and challenge of representing many prominent business leaders and public figures, championship boxers and other professional athletes, nationally recognized entertainers and Soviet dissidents. Today my focus remains pursuing justice at all levels of our court system with drive and integrity. I will welcome your inquiry about any serious litigation matter, whatever your cultural background, occupation or status.
