Elliot Wertheim
Attorney Investigator

Elliot brings the savvy of a seasoned investigator and former prosecutor to ILG. As a prosecutor, Elliot worked on a variety of matters – ranging from long term investigations into financial fraud to sensitive litigation of crimes of violence and power. Elliot’s favorite part of his work is the careful deconstruction of complex problems. He knows the importance of asking the right question and listening without the expectation of a particular answer.

Before ILG, Elliot worked in the public sector for the Kings County District Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn, New York. There, he honed his investigatory skills. No matter was too small for Elliot to look at with a fresh pair of eyes. While living and working in Brooklyn, he particularly enjoyed meeting a diverse group of people from all walks of life and striving to understand their perspectives.

One of Elliot’s more significant matters involved a fire that claimed the life of an elderly man who was unable to escape his rented bedroom because of his building’s unsafe setup. Another notable investigation involved an international scam resulting in millions of dollars of losses wherein elderly residents of New York City were falsely informed that their grandchildren were incarcerated and in need of thousands of dollars of bail money.

Elliot enjoys travel and considers himself fortunate to have lived in many different places. After undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland in College Park, and before law school at Washington University in Saint Louis, Elliot lived just north of Patagonia in Puerto Varas, Chile. Elliot is excited to explore all that Colorado has to offer. He particularly enjoys spending time in the mountains. When he is not working, you might find Elliot hiking, playing basketball, or obsessively listening to a podcast about science, finance, or current events.
