Elan E. Weinreb is a creative and insightful civil litigator, mediator, and arbitrator who has represented domestic and
international clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal court cases involving diverse and complex fields of law and has extensive experience in the use of technology in
litigation. He has also served as a third-party neutral in mediations and both individually and as a panelist in arbitrations.
Mr. Weinreb was born in 1979 in Hollywood, Florida to Dr. Neal
Weinreb, a world-class hematologist/oncologist, and Mrs. Bonnie Weinreb (nee Riesel), a graduate-level English instructor. After attending the Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School and Ben Lipson Hillel Community High School, he moved to Manhattan in 1996 to
attend Isaac Breuer College of Hebraic Studies at Yeshiva University and Yeshiva College at Yeshiva University. While at Yeshiva University, Mr.
Weinreb reinstituted the Yeshiva University Debate Society and went on to win more than a few debate trophies at regional competitions.
After graduating as Valedictorian from Isaac Breuer College and obtaining a Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude, in History from
Yeshiva College, Mr. Weinreb’s love for language, rhetoric, and argument propelled him to the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. From 2000
through 2002, Mr. Weinreb served—first as an Associate Editor and then as Production Editor—on the Cardozo Law Review, where he
developed an interest in the use of computer technology in litigation and published a student Note on
the use of computer animations and simulations in the courtroom.
After graduating magna cum laude from Cardozo in 2002 with a concentration in Litigation, Mr. Weinreb joined Kaye Scholer LLP, a prestigious midtown Manhattan law firm. Over approximately the next seven years, he had the honor and privilege of
representing the following clients in multi-million dollar commercial, intellectual property, and product liability litigations:
In November 2007, Mr. Weinreb published another article on computer animations in the courtroom for the American Bar Association’s
Young Lawyers Division, and in September 2008, he was quoted in Fortune Small Business on
Seeking more control and responsibility over his own cases, in June 2009, Mr. Weinreb joined Katlowitz & Associates as Senior Associate and Head of Litigation, and in July 2012, he was promoted to Counsel. At the start of
2014, Mr. Weinreb left Katlowitz & Associates to pursue his life-long dream of establishing The Weinreb Law Firm, PLLC ("TWLF").
In June 2015, Mr. Weinreb decided to expand TWLF's practice areas to include alternative dispute resolution (a/k/a ADR) disciplines,
namely arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. He has successfully completed comprehensive
training in commercial arbitration offered by the New York State Bar Association and mediation training offered by the New York Center for Interpersonal Development.
Outside of the office, Mr. Weinreb serves as a professional Torah reader for two West Hempstead synagogues of which he is a member:
Congregation Anshei Shalom and Young Israel of West Hempstead. His spouse of nineteen
years, Michele A. Weinreb, a court reporter and gourmet chef (although she will never admit it if asked), keeps him both entertained and well-fed. More importantly, she serves as his perpetual
source of motivation and inspiration.
