About

Hi, I’m Ellis.  I’ve been practicing law for nearly two decades, and given my unique experience as a litigator in business matters I am uniquely qualified to advise businesses as to the pitfalls to avoid. 

My most fulfilling role as an attorney was the opportunity to represent fellow soldiers when I served as an active duty member of the United States Army JAG Corps.  After graduating as Honor Graduate of the 155th Officer Basic Course (OBC), I had the opportunity to serve as an Army prosecutor and defense attorney.  In that role I was able to help numerous soldiers with serious legal matters in the pursuit of justice.

Why I Practice Law
Currently, my focus is on civil business litigation and disputes, with a specialty in employment law and government contract matters. I take pride in giving my clients the advice and counsel that is likely to avoid legal troubles that the unrepresented may not be aware of.
Fun Fact
In my free time I enjoy running and playing sports, particularly basketball.
