Personal injury Attorney | Oct 24
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Elan and I met when we both were deputies at the Humboldt County DA's office. When she decided to leave the DA's office, it was an obvious choice to have her join my firm as a partner. Elan is dedicated, honest and an excellent trial lawyer. Since entering civil practice, Elan I have worked together on numerous matters. I am proud to call her my law partner and would unhesitatingly recommend her to anyone seeking a lawyer."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 26
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Elan is a tirelessly hard worker. She is always prepared and has strong detail recollection which can make all the difference in court. This, with her background in engineering, makes her an immediate asset at her new firm."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 23
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Humboldt County’s private bar is very fortunate to welcome Elan Firpo to its ranks. I had the pleasure of being opposing counsel on numerous occasions during Elan’s tenure with the Humboldt County District Attorney’s office. Elan was unfailingly fair and well prepared. She brings an innate sense of wisdom to her work - her clients will be lucky to have her."
Litigation Attorney | Jun 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Elan Firpo is an outstanding lawyer. She has worked tirelessly as a Humboldt County Deputy District Attorney handling all types of cases including homicides with superb skill and the highest ethical standards. She deserves a "10" rating."
