Ms. Ellis’ was born and raised in Bellevue and her practice focuses on elder law, probate, estate planning and immigration law. She began her legal career as an attorney advisor for the U.S. Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), a position she entered through the U.S. Attorney General’s Honor Program. Following a federal judicial clerkship with the Honorable Robert H. Whaley in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Washington, she was an associate at a small firm in downtown Seattle before starting her firm in 2013.  Ms. Ellis is the author of Visa Solutions for International Students, Scholars, and Sponsors: What You Need to Know (Quick Prep) (Thomson Reuters/Aspatore 2012 Ed.).
