Michael​ ​Elliott,​ ​Esq.

Former​ ​Public​ ​Defender

Michael ElliottMichael​ ​Elliott​ ​is​ ​a​ ​former​ ​Deputy​ ​Public​ ​Defender​ ​whose​ ​​ ​focuses​ ​primarily​ ​on criminal​ ​law.​ ​​ ​He​ ​has​ ​successfully​ ​assisted​ ​clients​ ​on​ ​numerous​ ​criminal​ ​cases, ranging​ ​from​ ​simple​ ​misdemeanors​ ​to​ ​violent​ ​felonies,​ ​and​ ​is​ ​highly​ ​familiar​ ​with​ ​the courts​ ​and​ ​prosecuting​ ​agencies​ ​in​ ​Los​ ​Angeles​ ​and​ ​Orange​ ​County.
Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​first​ ​became​ ​introduced​ ​to​ ​criminal​ ​law​ ​while​ ​working​ ​as​ ​a​ ​courtroom​ ​clerk for​ ​the​ ​Los​ ​Angeles​ ​County​ ​Superior​ ​Court.​ ​​ ​He​ ​later​ ​attended​ ​Whittier​ ​Law​ ​School​ ​on an​ ​academic​ ​scholarship,​ ​taking​ ​courses​ ​in​ ​criminal​ ​trial​ ​advocacy,​ ​criminal​ ​law, criminal​ ​procedure,​ ​and​ ​international​ ​criminal​ ​law,​ ​where​ ​he​ ​earned​ ​the​ ​top​ ​grade​ ​in that​ ​particular​ ​class.​ ​​ ​It​ ​was​ ​during​ ​this​ ​time​ ​that​ ​Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​served​ ​as​ ​an​ ​intern​ ​at​ ​the Orange​ ​County​ ​Public​ ​Defender’s​ ​Office,​ ​assisting​ ​in​ ​the​ ​defense​ ​of​ ​various​ ​felony cases.​

A​ ​prolific​ ​writer​ ​with​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​journalism​ ​background,​ ​Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​earned​ ​multiple​ ​awards during​ ​law​ ​school​ ​for​ ​his​ ​outstanding​ ​legal​ ​research​ ​and​ ​writing​ ​skills.​ ​​ ​Those​ ​writing talents​ ​allowed​ ​him​ ​to​ ​become​ ​a​ ​senior​ ​member​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Whittier​ ​Journal​ ​for​ ​Child​ ​and Family​ ​Advocacy.​

Upon​ ​graduation​ ​from​ ​law​ ​school,​ ​Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​worked​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Little​ ​Saigon​ ​area​ ​of Orange​ ​County,​ ​maintaining​ ​a​ ​diverse​ ​practice​ ​in​ ​bankruptcy,​ ​civil​ ​litigation,​ ​and criminal​ ​defense​ ​matters.​ ​Because​ ​many​ ​of​ ​his​ ​criminal​ ​cases​ ​involved​ ​immigrant clients,​ ​Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​gained​ ​extensive​ ​experience​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​the​ ​legal​ ​issues​ ​that​ ​arise when​ ​criminal​ ​law​ ​and​ ​immigration​ ​law​ ​converge.

Mr.​ ​Elliott​ ​later​ ​joined​ ​a​ ​local​ ​Public​ ​Defender’s​ ​Office​ ​in​ ​Southern​ ​California​ ​so​ ​that​ ​he could​ ​defend​ ​the​ ​indigent​ ​and​ ​practice​ ​criminal​ ​law​ ​exclusively.​ ​​

​Mr.​ ​Elliot​ ​has​ ​since joined​ ​Manshoory​ ​Law​ ​Group​ ​as​ ​a​ ​top​ ​advocate​ ​for​ ​the​ ​criminally​ ​accused,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​be confident​ ​in​ ​his​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​secure​ ​a​ ​favorable​ ​outcome​ ​on​ ​your​ ​behalf.
