Eli helps clients with personal injury cases after car accidents and other injuries, but he has another unique skill set as well: helping family members with estate administration and fiduciary services. When someone passes away or becomes incapacitated, someone will qualify to be the “fiduciary” of the estate, in charge of handling the assets of the decedent or ward. There are lots of laws governing how those assets must be handled and distributed.

Eli helps people who have qualified as fiduciaries defend themselves against accusations of wrongdoing, and he also helps family members who believe a fiduciary has handled money improperly. If this situation sounds familiar, don’t hesitate to call BenGlassLaw and tell us your story. Even if you do not need an attorney, we will equip you with free resources and help you make the best legal decision possible.

Born and raised in Mississippi, Eli went to Millsaps College where he was a Biomedical Ethics Fellow. He witnessed first hand the inequalities in our healthcare system and the problems people have paying medical bills (something we help people with at BenGlassLaw every day.)

“Growing up in Mississippi, there was a lot of injustice - a lot of poverty,” says Eli. “Whenever I would see people struggling and hurting, there would be people ‘whacking at the branches’ of the problem, but the only time I ever saw people getting at the root of the problem, it was always an attorney. So I knew from an early age that I wanted to become an attorney so I could help people who were suffering.”

Eli studied law at William & Mary and clerked for the Commissioner of Accounts for the Circuit Court of Fairfax County upon passing the bar. When Eli came across BenGlassLaw, he knew he had found something different:

“When I saw the nontraditional approach Ben took to law firms, I became more and more interested, and it became very clear that this wasn’t something I was going to find anywhere else. This is somewhere I can come and thrive and do the things I’m passionate about while getting the support to do them.”

We are honored to have Eli on the team. As always, if you have any legal question whatsoever, give our offices a call and let the BenGlassLaw show you our world class customer service!
