Lisa Ellis, Principal

Ms. Ellis is a northwest native 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 multi-service firm in 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.).

She was drawn to elder law and probate law while helping her mother with aging issues and settling her estate. She realized that her years of experience could help others in the community. In high school, Lisa was also a family caregiver to her grandmother who died of Alzheimer’s Disease. Her firm serves clients in King County and surrounding communities.
