About Me

´╗┐Elliott Alhadeff was born in Los Angeles in 1938. In 1960, he received his Bachelor of Science
in Business Administration from UCLA, and a Juris Doctorate degree in 1965. Thereafter, he
was appointed as a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney, where he received the L.A.
County DDA's Association 1990 Prosecutor of the Year Award. Mr. Alhadeff continued to serve
with that office until his retirement in 1993. His life as a criminal trial lawyer compelled his
witnessing of the relentless, tragic waste of precious human life in the inner city. His books in
The McKinsey Saga series are the result of his perceptions of the causes and an implied answer
for a solution.

Mr. Alhadeff edited and published the Law Enforcement Legal Reporter from 1975 to 1998, a
monthly newsletter reviewing recent case law from the California and federal appellate courts.
He also published The Handbook for Police Officers and The Handbook for Investigators,
outlining legal issues and procedures pertaining to criminal arrests and investigations.

Mr. Alhadeff has taught at various institutions, including the University of Southern California
and California State University at Long Beach. He has given numerous seminars and has been
invited as a guest lecturer on legal updates for police officers as well as special subjects in
criminal law and prosecutorial trials and strategies.

In 1999, he served as the American Bar Association's Criminal Liaison Officer for the Central
European and Eurasian Law Initiative in Uzbekistan. In this capacity, Mr. Alhadeff worked with
members of the Uzbekistan political and legal professions, assisting them in creating and
improving their legal systems to conform to modern judicial standards.
