Elroy John took a non-traditional path to becoming a lawyer. He did not dream of working as an attorney growing up, but he always knew that he wanted to help people. Elroy joined the Army shortly after graduating high school and served for seven years. When his tour ended, he completed his undergraduate studies at Florida Atlantic University and became an advocate for children and families at a foster care and adoption agency. Later, he was recruited to manage a $1 million-dollar grant program from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which helped to house homeless veterans. It was through those experiences that he first worked with lawyers and was able to observe how they shape outcomes and impact lives.
Elroy went on to earn a law degree from the Florida International University College of Law. Since becoming an attorney, he has tried cases to juries in both state and federal court, argued numerous criminal and civil motions, and taken and defended countless depositions. He uses that experience to safeguard due process, the right to be heard. Elroy fights to make sure his clients' voices echo throughout the courtroom -- where the law lives and breathes.
