Described as a “bull dog” , a “pit bull”, and a “gatekeeper”, Attorney Elijah K. Nielson is not afraid to fight. In his first year of licensure Elijah second-chaired complex litigation involving Chinese corporations and $4 million dollars in damage claims and also took on members of the “Big 5” banking industry as a second chair in mortgage fraud litigation.

As lead attorney Elijah obtained a pre-litigation settlement of his client’s claim against a public entity, negotiated an easement dispute to final settlement, took an employer on for employment fraud, and beat down the intimidation tactics of an abusive contractor.

As an alumnus of Pepperdine Law’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution’s LL.M. program, ranked the number one dispute resolution program by U.S. News & World Report for the ninth consecutive year, Elijah has mediated cases throughout the Los Angeles court system, externed in China with the Beijing Arbitration Commission, and co-mediated employment-discrimination cases as an extern with U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
