Of Counsel
225 Broadway Suite 2400
New York, NY 10007

Elizabeth Eilender is “Of Counsel" to the firm of Jaroslawicz & Jaros, and has been litigating cases on behalf of clients that have been injured or wronged for nearly three decades.

Elizabeth concentrates her practice on the prosecution of serious Personal Injury and Wrongful Death cases, Discrimination and Employment claims, Commercial Disputes, Improper Denials of First Party Insurance Claims (with an emphasis on contesting denials of property damage, life and disability insurance benefits), Breach of Contract, Excessive force by police officers and Professional Malpractice including medical malpractice.

Long before the #MeToo movement, Elizabeth represented surivors of sexual harassment and discrimination. See, D’Amico v. Commodities Exchange, 652 N.Y.S.2d 294, 235 A.D.2d 313, (1st Dep’t 1997) (first sexual harassment case in New York which determined that the Commodities Exchange was a place of public accommodation and therefore the New York State Human Rights Law protected exchange members); Perez v. EL Al Israel Airlines, 26 Misc 3d 1235[A], 2010 NY Slip Op 50407[U] [Sup Ct, NY County 2010]) (court denied defendant’s motion for summary judgment and held that the head of the Human Resources department could be held liable by a jury for gender discrimination under the New York State Executive Law 296, et. seq. and New York City Administrative Code 8-101, et seq.).

Recently, Elizabeth staved off an attempt by multiple defendants in a sex abuse action to have the case thrown out of court where the defendants placed a known predator into a school as an “intern" who then proceeded to sexually assault a female 8th grader repeatedly. The attacker is now in jail and the case is headed for trial. Washington v. Bronxworks, et al. Index no. 156646/2016 Decision and Order of Judge Sweeting, July 20, 2021.

Based on her background as a Division I lacrosse player for Dartmouth College, Elizabeth has represented several collegiate scholar-athletes who have suffered emotional and physical abuse by coaches in claims against the individuals who aid and abet such conduct. See, Cooper v. Holy Cross, S.D.N.Y.13-CV-8064. She has also represented coaches who have been wrongfully accused and unfairly denied due process.
