About Eliot
Over the years, I’ve honed my craft not only as a lawyer and litigator but as a teacher, writer, speaker, and facilitator. I work with individuals and organizations in three ways: through my law practice (Wagonheim Law), teaching online through webinars, workshops, and courses, and speaking engagements. As a teacher and guide, I help people like you avoid deadly contract traps, spot opportunities, and protect hard-earned profits, so you can focus on what you do best.


Stop feeling overwhelmed or uncertain about your contracts. Feel confident and relieved that you’ve found the right training resource and partner.
