Brad Elzeer is a Northeast Ohio native who grew up in North Olmsted, Ohio. He graduated from Baldwin Wallace College in 1986 with a B.A. in Accounting/Finance. Brad received the Amling Investment Award, an annual award to the school’s top student in financial investments, and was a member of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.
Brad earned his J.D. in 1989 at Case Western Reserve School of Law, where he was an officer in the nationally recognized Phi Delta Phi Legal Fraternity. Upon graduation from law school, he began working as a tax accountant/lawyer for a local accounting firm. To pursue his desire to practice injury law, he learned workers’ compensation by using the union handbook while working at a small firm. He joined a defense firm in the early 1990s, representing state-funded and self-insured employers in workers’ compensation claims and supervising other attorneys in the office as the senior attorney.
After spending many years representing employers, Brad made the decision in 1999 to join Plevin & Gallucci to fight for workers’ rights and practice personal injury law. At Plevin & Gallucci, he has handled over 20,000 workers’ compensation hearings ranging from simple to complex cases and represented over 10,000 injured workers.
Brad brings a unique perspective to Plevin & Gallucci because he understands the legal and practical ramifications of workers’ compensation law from the perspective of both the employer and the injured worker. As a result, he has been named a Super Lawyer® and has been a guest speaker for the National Business Institute for advanced workers’ compensation.
Brad enjoys working out and spending time with his wife and four daughters.
