“Good job”

Prior to becoming an attorney, Brian Elston was a claims adjuster for a major insurance carrier.  Brian resolved numerous claims for the benefit of the company.  In one particular claim, he felt that the claimant did not receive a fair settlement.  If the injured worker had an attorney, he likely would have received a higher settlement.  When he informed his manager of the situation, he was told “good job” on the settlement.  At that moment, Brian heard his calling to be an attorney….

Professional Experience

During law school, Brian clerked for the Honorable Robert C. Hunter at the N.C. Court of Appeals.  After graduating, Brian returned to his wife’s hometown, Asheville, North Carolina and started his legal career.

Brian’s legal experience includes representing school boards in various matters, including special education law and surety/forfeiture work.  In addition, he also represented individuals in the areas of workers’ compensation, personal injury, and employment.

In 2016, Brian started his own firm, Brian Elston Law.  His primary areas of practice are workers’ compensation, personal injury, and surety law.  He handles special education and employment law matters on a case by case basis.
