He has represented injured workers in front of the Deputy Commissioner level of the Industrial Commission, the Full Commission, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
During law school, Eliu was an Articles Editor on the Campbell Law Review and had two Judicial Clerkships. First, clerking for Justice Paul M. Newby of the Supreme Court of North Carolina.

Eliu was also an intern with the general counsel of GlaxoSmithKline and Legal Aid of North Carolina.
Prior to joining the firm as an associate, Eliu was a volunteer Assistant District Attorney in the Wake County District Attorney’s Office.
Beyond his work at Legal Aid, Eliu has always had a passion for representing and protecting the rights of the immigrant community. Eliu volunteered in the Legal Aid Farmworker Unit’s Witness for Justice program and in the North Carolina Justice Center’s DACA Clinic. Eliu also organized several fundraisers on behalf of the Campbell chapter of the Hispanic Law Student Association to create a scholarship for future interns of Legal Aid’s Battered Immigrant Project.
