Elisha Hawk


Yost Legal Group

Attorney Elisha Hawk has become a leader on complex medical device product liability cases.

That wasn’t always her career trajectory. Hawk, 40, was teaching when she decided to go to law school. In 2008, she graduated University of Maryland School of Law with a concentration in health law, serving as class president for two years. She taught full-time during law school and had three children during that time.

“It was challenging, but we sort of set our minds to it,” Hawk said. “[She and her husband], we’re a good team. We’re both hard workers, so we both had that philosophy going into it.”

Hawk now is an attorney at the Yost Legal Group and recently was recognized by the Maryland Association for Justice Inc. for her leadership with new lawyers.

She also runs regularly in the Back on My Feet program.
