Elie Honig’s Bio: Age, Parents
Elie, who stands at an average height, is known for his witty words of wisdom & pithy insights among his family, friends, and colleagues. He embraces Middle Eastern American ethnicity from his parents.
Elie, age 44, was born in Camden to a social worker mother. When he was only two months old, his mother took him to attend his father’s graduation from Rutgers School of Law.
He was raised in Voorhees and then Cherry Hill, alongside his younger brothers. The boys grew up observing their father's legal profession. The family seemingly discusses the law over their dinner table.
Be that as it may, Elie was never drawn to the civil matters such as real estate, tax law, and bankruptcy which his father handled. Instead, he yearned for real human drama.
