Ms. Stewart has handled both negotiations and lawsuits against insurance companies to recover these insurance proceeds.
Ms. Stewart also handles other types of complex commercial disputes, including antitrust and unfair trade practice claims, securities, RICO, breach of contract and various business tort cases. In many of these cases, Ms. Stewart has gone to court at the outset to obtain or to block an injunction or a prejudgment remedy. She also frequently has litigated class action issues. When it is in the best interest of her clients, Ms. Stewart has tried these cases to verdict. She also has resolved matters through arbitration, mediation and informal settlement discussions.

Elisa J. Stewart
Partner at Stewart & Musell, LLP
Elisa Stewart is a partner at the civil rights law firm Stewart & Musell, LLP, a bi-coastal law firm located in San Francisco, California, and Freehold, New Jersey. Stewart & Musell, LLP is a firm devoted to protecting civil rights in employment and in criminal law. Ms. Stewart is licensed to practice in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.
Ms. Stewart is committed to representing employees in public and private employment and protecting their civil rights. In 1999, Ms. Stewart began her career representing indigent defendants in the criminal justice system in Brockton, Massachusetts. As a new lawyer, she handled a serious felony case load ensuring that constitutional rights were preserved no matter the nature of the offense. If the shield of law fails to provide protection to any one person, it fails us all.
In 2003, Ms. Stewart appeared before the United States Supreme Court in Stogner v. California (2003) 539 U.S. 607, a case that tested the power of the state to revive criminal cases for prosecution long after the statute of limitations had passed. The defendant was charged with crimes that had occurred as many as 50 years after the fact. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote agreed with the defendant's attorneys that the State could not prosecute a person after the statute of limitations had run its course. After this success, Ms. Stewart stepped out into private practice and opened her firm in San Francisco, California. She began representing individuals in cases all over the State. In 2006, Ms. Stewart opened a firm in New Jersey and joined her practice with a law school colleague, Ms. Wendy Musell.
Ms. Stewart is a member of the American Bar Association, the National Employment Lawyer's and the San Francisco Bar Association.
