Elias P. George

Attorney
Offices: Henderson, Nevada
Practice Areas: Commercial & Business Litigation

Elias is an experienced litigator who cares – about his clients and community.  When other lawyers emphasize bull-headed tactics or scorched-earth campaigns, Elias’ reputation as a thoughtful and effective litigator derives from his success in seemingly unresolvable cases. Whether a civil rights case alleging sexual misconduct, or claims for fraud alleging a government-wide conspiracy, Elias decisively litigates claims without drawing unnecessary attention. As a former deputy city attorney for the city of Las Vegas, he managed many of the city’s complex and high-profile suits for over 5 years, where his unique approach achieved creative outcomes despite the challenging and politically-charged environment. For those complex matters that require out-of-the-box strategies and sound judgment, Elias shines. His extensive courtroom experience in corporate governance, intellectual property, civil rights, and business litigation matters in State and Federal Courts is well established.

Developing the new crop of lawyers into empathetic and ethically-driven practitioners is a passion of Elias. Since 2017, he has been an adjunct professor at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law where he works with students transitioning into the practice of law. In addition to developing legal acumen, Elias’ courses are unabashedly progressive – they challenge students to think, not as lawyers, but as business counselors, and to be driven by client goals rather than “winning at all costs.”
