About F.

Learn F.’s areas of practice.

The purchase of a home, townhome, or condo is the largest investment most of us will ever make, and homebuyers cannot see into the walls to see how a home was built and usually have limited knowledge of construction. Some builders take advantage of this, build homes riddled with defects, and sell them to unsuspecting buyers. That is why the law provides homeowners strong protections for defective construction practices. Elliotte Quinn focuses his practice on representing homeowners and strives to use the law to get homeowners the compensation and repairs they deserve.

In addition to his construction defect work, Elliotte represents clients in the following areas:

  • Condominium and homeowner association governance and disputes
  • Class actions
  • Consumer contract claims
  • Insurance disputes including denial of homeowner, property, and liability insurance policy claims
  • Appeals

Elliotte is from Charleston and graduated with honors from the College of Charleston. He received his law degree with high honors from Emory University School of Law in Atlanta. While at Emory, he was on the Emory Law Journal and served as its Executive Articles Editor. He received several honors and awards while at Emory, including the Pro Bono Medal for his work providing legal services to those in need, the Order of the Coif, the Paul Bryan Prize, and the International Association of Defense Counsel’s legal writing prize.

Following law school, Elliotte served as a law clerk for a federal district court judge in the Northern District of Alabama, helping the judge with legal research and drafting decisions. Elliotte then served as a law clerk for Justice Kaye Hearn on the South Carolina Supreme Court drafting memos and opinions for cases before South Carolina’s highest court.

Prior to joining the Steinberg Law Firm in 2018, Elliotte was a litigator in the Charleston office of a highly regarded regional law firm where he primarily worked defending several of the largest national homebuilders in construction defect cases. He also handled a wide variety of other legal matters ranging from drafting construction contracts to litigating business disputes and personal injury claims. Elliotte concentrated on construction defect disputes, often involving many parties and complex issues. He gained invaluable knowledge and experience of how construction defect claims are tried and how builders defend against them. But at heart, he wasn’t satisfied representing builders, and he joined the Steinberg Law Firm to use his knowledge to help homeowners confronted with construction problems.

Elliotte is a member of the South Carolina Bar’s Construction Law Section and the American Bar Association’s Forum on Construction Law. He has authored numerous articles in the construction law field, including co-authoring a chapter in The 2017 A201 Deskbook covering revisions to the industry’s most common form of construction contracts. Recently Elliotte was elected to serve on the SC Bar of Delegates for the 1st Judicial Circuit.

Elliotte and his wife Lyndsey live in West Ashley with their two daughters. They are members of Circular Congregational Church. Elliotte serves on the board of directors for the Palmetto Project and provides legal assistance to victims at a community domestic violence shelter.

construction problems
Elliotte Quinn with the Steinberg Law Firm was invaluable to me in resolving an issue with my Columbia, SC home builder and developer. The construction problems I had were completely outside the norm of any routine issue and completely beyond my expertise. Elliotte kept me informed through the entire process and made sure I understood my options during each phase of litigation. Thank you Elliotte, Monica and the entire team at the Steinberg Law Firm.

Excellent Representation
Like most people, I never expected that I would need legal representation. However, after a horrible experience with a pool install, my husband and I decided we had to seek legal counsel. After talking with Elliotte about our experience, we knew he was going to be the help we needed. Over the next few weeks and months, Elliotte never lost focus and provided us with excellent representation, guidance, and advice. He exemplifies the perfect combination of care, trust, professionalism, and toughness. The end result….he achieved the results we wanted while making the journey as smooth as possible.
