Biography

Eli is a partner with Clausen Miller P.C. with nearly two decades of litigation experience as a trial attorney in the Chicagoland area and surrounding counties.  He has tried over 20 jury trials to verdict in Cook County alone, successfully defending clients in areas of law including wrongful death, bodily injury, transportation matters, medical and healthcare malpractice, professional liability, premises liability, property damage, insurance coverage disputes, and subrogation matters.

Prior to joining Clausen Miller, Eli served as managing partner of a boutique Chicago insurance defense firm where he concentrated his practice in defending commercial transportation and general liability carriers and their insureds. Additionally, he brings extensive experience in matters involving international discovery including conducting discovery in England, Germany, and Canada. He has often been chosen by carriers to serve as shadow counsel for high exposure claims and complex strategic considerations.

A skilled and successful negotiator, Eli is regularly appointed to serve as arbitrator and/or mediator for large national transportation carriers in both Uninsured Motorist and Underinsured Motorist matters based upon his skills as a negotiator and ability to assess and provide case valuations. He has presented seminars to various claim departments ranging in topics from “The Art of Settlement Negotiations” to “Defending Paratransit Matters.”

Eli received his J.D. from John Marshall Law School in 2004 and his B.A. in Political Science from The Ohio State University in 2000. While a native of New Jersey, he has called Chicago home for more than 20 years. When he is not advocating on behalf of his clients, Eli enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.
