About - EOLIS Public Service
EOLIS supports public service initiatives of Wendeen Eolis; vetting legal counsel prospects for legal affairs crises arising from terrorist incidents and natural disasters.
As Chief Operations Officer in command of Hope's Champion Task Force, Wendeen often invites qualified members of EOLIS' law student intern program (a program she instituted in the late 60's) to travel with her on international assignments for the government. The seeds for her leadership of Hope's Champion Task Force were planted in Vietnam, where Ms. Eolis led a mission to assist "Vietnam Crisis" widows during President Nixon's administration..
In the early 90's, Wendeen was wending her way into the thick of the political maelstrom of New York City and NY State politics; she was a key advisor to Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Governor George Pataki and interacted with the likes of future president Donald Trump.
Following the events of 9/11, Wendeen established a career counseling initiative to assist lawyers and law firms displaced by the World Trde Center events; she looked upon these activities as a labor of love for the City and for the legal profession. .
Hope's Champion, Center Stage
In 2002, Wendeen took her post 9.11 crisis counseling skills overseas, visiting with American allies in the aftermath of violence incidents and offering up recommendations of counsel. Hope's Champion Task Force ws the outcome. Wendeen's Dad and Governor Pataki toasted her decision to take the lead for shaping the HCTF missi0n--vetting counsel needs in the aftermath of catastrophic events. EOLIS companies provide significant pro-bono manpower for HCTF mandates.
Wendeen Works Both Side of the Aisle
Long before Wendeen joined David Axelrod and Karl Rove at a Temple Emmanuel gathering, she had crossed paths with both of them on vetting projects during the Presidential administration of George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. As of 2017, Wendeen has served six presidential administrations as a non partisan.
