Elina Agnoli

Ms. Agnoli was born and raised right here in Mendocino County, where she attended Laytonville Elementary, Middle and High Schools. She was named valedictorian of her graduating Middle and High School Classes. From a young age, she was active in sports, extra curricular activities, and community enrichment programs; she also participated in high school rodeo, horse shows, and 4-H programs throughout Mendocino County and Northern California. In 1997, she was crowned Laytonville Rodeo Sweetheart.

After graduating high school in 2000, Ms. Agnoli was awarded an academic scholarship to the prestigious University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where she graduated cum laude in 2004 with dual Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Political Science and Creative Writing. After college, she was accepted at the University of San Francisco School of Law. She graduated in the top 1/3 of her class in 2008, passed the California Bar Exam, and thereafter quickly landed a job at Kazan McClain Satterly & Greenwood, one of the premier plaintiffs' asbestos firms in the country. At Kazan McClain, Ms. Agnoli spent several years litigating complex cases – frequently obtaining multimillion dollar settlements and judgments on behalf of clients, and their families, harmed by some of the worst corporate tortfeasors in American history. After leaving Kazan McClain, Ms. Agnoli worked for the nationwide firm of Brown, Koro & Romag, LLP, which specializes in representing injured motorcyclists.

During high school, college, and law school, Ms. Agnoli participated in various mock trial and moot court programs, garnering several local and national awards and titles and generally honing her trial advocacy skills. She now judges several such competitions each year, and also helps coach the Laytonville High School Mock Trial Team.

Ms. Agnoli is committed to offering each of her clients exceptional, personalized, high-quality legal services in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Ms. Agnoli is known for being an aggressive advocate as well as a pragmatic, straightforward and highly creative attorney.

Ms. Agnoli appreciates all the support and well-wishes she has received from the community since opening her office; she is exceedingly happy to be living and practicing law back in her hometown of Laytonville, and is looking forward to providing residents of her beloved community with outstanding legal services and advice for the next few decades.
