MIDDLETOWN, NY, December 31, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Elissa L. Carrick has been included in Marquis Who’s Who. As in all Marquis Who’s Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
With nearly 10 years of practiced expertise to her credit, Ms. Carrick is currently the owner of the Law Offices of Elissa L. Carrick, which she opened in 2019. She specializes in personal injury law. As head of the office, she handles all aspects of the firm’s management, attends court appearances, depositions and arbitrations, and handles plaintiff personal injury cases. She prides herself on her daily interactions with her clients. When she takes a case, her clients know that when they call they will have a chance to speak directly with her.
Prior to starting her firm, she honed her knowledge of law by working on both sides of personal injury cases.
Ms. Carrick began her legal career working for some of the largest personal injury firms in the Hudson Valley. She held positions as an associate attorney, supervising attorney and a trial attorney. She worked directly with hundreds of local residents to help them navigate their personal injury cases from inception through trial. She also spent time as a staff counsel with GEICO, where she worked with claims adjusters to evaluate cases, negotiate resolutions, and when necessary go to trial.
Despite all she has accomplished in her career, large settlements, jury verdicts in favor of her clients, and wins on cases that were considered “unwinnable”, the thing she is most proud of is having the opportunity to mentor others in the field. Despite her own accomplishments, she says, watching others succeed gave her a greater sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.
Ms. Carrick earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Marist College in 2007 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the School of Law at Fordham University in 2010. Upon graduation from Fordham, she received the Archibald R. Murray Public Service Award. She is a member of the Middletown Bar Association, where she previously served as president, and the New York State Bar Association.
In recognition of her outstanding work, Ms. Carrick has been named a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star each year since 2016 and was named one of the 10 Best Attorneys for Client Satisfaction through the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys in 2019. Over the years, she has also been named to the 10 Best Attorneys for High Verdicts and Settlements, and a Top 10 Attorney by Attorney and Practice Magazine in 2019. Notably, she holds a Five-Star Review Rating through AVVO. Looking forward, Ms. Carrick intends to continue running a successful firm and mentoring young attorneys who are emerging in their field.
