Working With You

In both straightforward and complex cases, Ellis Law provides thoughtful, straightforward and upfront advice to help clients make the best informed decisions. We take pride in assisting clients and we continually strive to provide value in our services. By structuring our office around client needs, we do not carry the overhead of a larger firm. We provide both high-quality work and excellent client service expected of a bigger firm at rates that are reasonable to our experience levels. We offer both flat and hourly fees. We are responsive, agile and seeking to learn more about our clients to provide the best service.
