Versatile, smart and focused, Eliberty Lopez brings her impressive experience, poise and even temperament to crisis situations. As a law clerk for both a state court judge and a federal district court judge, Eli participated in criminal and civil jury trials and drafted dozens of opinions in all areas of law. She is well-versed in all stages of litigation and she possesses a unique understanding of how judges resolve the matters before them.

Prior to law school, she served as a program manager for the New York City Economic Development Corporation and completed a fellowship with the Congressional Hunger Center in Washington, DC. The training she received helped her develop into a skilled communicator, writer, and problem solver.

At RSHC, Eli focuses her practice on multiple areas of litigation including white-collar defense, corporate compliance, intellectual property, and product liability. Working with clients large and small, and representing individuals as well as corporate entities, Eli crafts comprehensive and innovative solutions to complex problems. Recognizing the importance of diversity in the legal profession, she offers invaluable perspectives to her clients.

Outside the courtroom, Eli stays healthy by running outdoors and cycling indoors when the weather is inclement. But her energy does not stop there. She also dedicates her time and enthusiasm to mentoring high school, college and law students.
