Lisa launched Elliott Law Offices in 1995 with a solid legal foundation developed while clerking for a Court of Appeals Judge, in addition to working for a prestigious insurance defense firm. Her strong legal background and interpersonal skills, along with an incredible work ethic and commitment to building and maintaining relationships, allow Lisa to be a strong advocate for her client base. She strives to ease the challenges of litigation, yet often recognizes creative alternatives to trial. Solutions that are often a preferable and effective approach.

  • Defense of individuals and companies in civil litigation throughout Minnesota and South Dakota.
