Elliott Schwalb, Esq.
Elliott, a graduate of New York University School of Law, began his career working in the non-profit sector in Northwest Georgia, and later in Atlanta. There, he established a significant precedent in administrative law for residents of nursing homes, requiring the state to survey and provide psychological services for residents. Later he moved to the Federal Government where in addition to enforcing the HIPAA (the “Health Information Portability and Accountability Act”) he played a key role, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice, to require several states, including Georgia, to initiate substantial reforms of its psychiatric hospitals and to provide needed mental health care outside of state institutions in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Since moving to private practice he has specialized in servicing a variety of business clients, Federal practice, and appellate work. Elliott has developed expertise in representing restaurants charged with “cable and/or satellite theft” in Federal court (47 U.S.C. §§ 553 and 605) and other business litigation. Elliott is a member of the New York and Georgia bar, is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Georgia and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is also a member of the Health Law, Appellate Practice, and Tax sections of the State Bar of Georgia. Outside of work, Elliott has an interest in history (including legal history), podcasting, and travel.
