Elsa is licensed to practice law in France and in California. Before moving to California, in 2001, she practiced in Paris for several years as a Tax attorney, analyzing tax structures for domestic and E.U./U.S. cross-border transactions/financing, and representing corporate clients undergoing tax audits. 

 

After working in business litigation for six years at the San Francisco Offices of Flynn, Delich & Wise, in IP and business litigation, she founded Beker Berry in 2009 developing a boutique practice for startups and international families of the Bay Area, with a focus on business litigation, family law and international estate planning.

 

Elsa graduated as valedictorian in contract law from the University of Rene Descartes School of Law (Paris V). She holds an Advanced Master’s Degree (“DESS”) in International Litigation and a Master’s Degree in Corporate and Tax Law. She was awarded an academic merit scholarship by Golden Gate University School of Law where she completed her LL.M in U.S. Law. While she assists start-ups as a part-time general counsel, on an as-needed basis, her focus has mostly become family law.

 

Elsa has a real passion for family conflict resolution, ensuring that any opportunity to fairly and amicably settle divorce proceedings has been explored before contemplating litigation, leveraging the benefits of prompt and fair settlement so that the parties can move on with their life and co-parent amicably. She has handled many divorces involving interstate and international issues.

Don't look any further (and I REALLY mean it)
Elsa helped me during my divorce, which was a little complicated since it was between the US and France. The competence, compassion and humanity of Elsa are off the chart. To make a long story short, there was a dispute of jurisdiction between the two courts (California and France), Elsa was so good that the Judge in France mentioned her work in the sentence (which attributed the competence to California). But it was not only during this international dispute that Elsa was extremely helpful, even during the preparation of the hearing in California she was really valuable and supportive. You have always the feeling that she is genuinely caring about the best possible outcome for you. I don't know how to say it again, but if you are in the unfortunate situation that you need a divorce lawyer, Elsa is the best you can find!
