About me

Imad Elias is a partner and founder of the emnployment and personal injury law firm of Mann & Elias, located in Los Angeles, California. The firm specializes in the representation of victims of wrongful employment actions, and people seriously injured in accidents.  Mr. Elias heads the Employment Law department of the firm while his partner, Scott Mann, heads the personal injury department of the firm. 


"I became a lawyer in order to help people who have been wronged, and make a positive difference in their lives.  I found the primary area of law for me to satisfy this passion is employment law, and in particular employment litigation, where I relentlessly work to help wrongfully treated employees get back on their feet, financially, mentally and emotionally. I have successfully represented hundreds of employees, including both low wage earners and highly paid professionals.   I am happy to report that I have recovered multiple Millions of dollars on behalf of wronged employees throughout my carreer, in the form of jury verdicts, arbitration awards and settlements.  After years of service to my clients, I have recently been selected as a Super Lawyer for 2015,  a great honor bestowed on only 5% of the top lawyer in California.  I also provide  guidance and legal education on how to comply with California Labor laws to small businesses.  Don't hesitate to call or email me if you are facing trouble at work."    Imad Elias.
