We highly recommend Mr. Underwood without any reservations.”

"Eli helped us set up our partnership and was straight forward and honest about the process and what was needed (so rare these days!). He gave us the expectation strait out and held to them (unlike the last corporate firm). Unfortunately when your new it takes a few to find the good ones. This is your guy!"

- O.A.

"Eli has been a great help to me. He is thoughtful and tries hard to achieve the best outcome, and is especially interested in avoiding litigation, and helping his client find the best way forward, even if it avoids conflict and makes his job smaller and simpler. I feel very comfortable with what was worked out, and sleep well over it. I give the highest recommendation to Eli!"

"Marcus and his team are true professionals and their attention to detail is impeccable. He definitely knows the right questions to ask and how to find the facts he needs to win your case. Having someone on your team who’s working hard behind the scenes can give you peace of mind during challenging times and that my friend is invaluable. He has a pretty unique approach that makes him special in what he does and that uniqueness make a huge difference. I highly recommend them!"


"We were in need of an attorney with considerable knowledge of real estate law and the legal issues related to property ownership. Eli Underwood went above and beyond our expectations.

He not only knew the laws, but also had the ability to explain them to us in a manner that we could clearly understand. He was exceptional at returning our calls in a timely manner and keeping us informed about every aspect of our lawsuit. He made sure all communication was documented in writing to alleviate any confusion or misunderstandings.

In keeping us abreast of our suit, his communication skills were outstanding. This talent was especially demonstrated when dealing with the apposing counsel. We feel this gave us a tremendous advantage over the opposing party that resulted in us reaching a successful outcome.

I would highly recommend Eli Underwood as we found him to be an exceptional attorney."

"We have been clients of Mr Underwood for over 2 years. We transitioned with him when he recently moved to establish his own law firm. And we honestly can't say enough good things about him and his work ethic. He always has time to get back with you and answers your questions.

In our need for legal services we found Eli to be well informed and on top of our case and our needs. Our's was not an ordinary case as it was a case with many facets. It was a very convoluted case.

There were multiple owners involved in a property dispute where one of the owners sued the rest of the owners with a Partition Suit. Needless to say Eli was instrumental in helping us resolve our differences and gained us a profitable sale all with good end results for all.

If you hire Eli Underwood you will not be disappointed!"

- M.I.

"Honest and hard working. Has been my family lawyer for many years and will continue to be so! Knowledgeable, responsive, and assertive-everything you need in counsel. Highly recommended!"


"Eli is a smart, diligent, fierce, and creative attorney. If I had need of litigation counsel tomorrow, there is no one that I would trust more."

- S.S.

"The last 60 years Dr. Borge and Mrs. Borge have been trying to sell their half of 25 acres of airport property in Napa. (no detail to cloud this message) A legal problem developed two years ago and the five of us hired a real estate lawyer to handle the whole 25 acres. Eli Underwood has had to deal with five separate parcels three from Napa one for New Mexico and one from Colorado ages from 64 to 98 years old in each with unique personalities however all our great successful people each accepted unconditionally and handled this challenge with respect and hidden skills he had developed as he developed his profession It took two years to put it all in place and sell. Lorna and I are most grateful to Eli Underwood for his discipline integrity compassion and respect and professionalism as he works with his clients as a person apart from his profession he is the one we should all be proud to carry on in a world that needs a man of his superior qualities"
