Garrett I. Elias specializes in the areas of employment discrimination and consumer law. With a desire to promote individual rights, Mr. Elias has been passionate about anti-discrimination law since childhood, which is only fitting for someone who is so culturally diverse. Of Filipino, Chinese, and German ancestry, Mr. Elias has come to appreciate the different cultures and customs that have evolved over the last several decades. In his employment practice, he counsels clients on issues involving discriminatory treatment based on race, national origin, gender, religion and disability (among other protected classes), in part to promote diversity.
Furthering his interest in helping the individual client, Mr. Elias also practices in the field of consumer law. In particular, he has represented clients who have become overwhelmed with debt, working with lenders and other creditors to settle clients’ debts at amounts more manageable for the clients. He has also filed lawsuits on behalf of clients who have been victims of illegal collection practices by creditors.
Mr. Elias has been a practicing attorney for nine years and is admitted to practice law in the States of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and the District of Columbia. He is also admitted to practice law before the United States District Courts for the Southern District of New York, District of New Jersey and District of Connecticut.
