The LI Law Podcast

Ep 17: Elan E. Weinreb, Esq. tell us why arbitration and mediation are better options than litigation to resolve disputes.

October 10, 2019

Welcome to the LI Law Podcast.  We feature legal issues and developments which affect Long Island residents and business owners.  The podcast focuses on Long Island law topics and includes greater New York court and legislative happenings.  If you are one of the approximate 8 million residents of Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings counties), or want to enjoy all law-related matters on Long Island, this podcast is for you!

Your host, Zehava Schechter, is an attorney admitted to the New York Bar for 30 years.  She concentrates her private practice in estate planning, administration, and litigation; real estate law; contracts, and business formation and dissolution.  If you like this podcast, you may want to look for Zehava’s monthly articles in the Malverne/West Hempstead Herald and the Beacon newspaper.

Our guest on this 17th episode is Elan E. Weinreb, Esq., 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.  A magna cum laude and Order of the Coif 2002 graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, from 2000 through 2002, Mr. Weinreb served 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.

He then joined Kaye Scholer LLP, a prestigious midtown Manhattan law firm, which merged with Arnold & Porter several years ago to become Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, LLP, and had the honor and privilege of representing many clients in multimillion-dollar commercial and product liability litigations.  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"), a solo civil dispute resolution practice located out of Garden City on Long Island.  From 2015 through 2016, he successfully completed comprehensive training in commercial arbitration offered by the New York State Bar Association ("NYSBA"), mediation training offered by the New York Center for Interpersonal Development, and advanced NYSBA commercial mediation training.  In April 2019, he served as a faculty member in the same advanced NYSBA commercial mediation training that he attended as a student three years before and simultaneously became a Part 146 New York County Supreme Court Commercial Division mediator.  Most recently, in September 2019, he was appointed co-Chair of the New York County Lawyers Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee. 

Elan Weinreb’s office is located at 1225 Franklin Avenue – Suite 325, Garden City, NY 11530, and he can be contacted at (516) 620-9716 or
