About Me

I am an attorney with the personal injury firm of Lowenthal & Abrams. Though my firm practices personal injury law, I do not. I focus my practice on matters involving legal ethics. This means I assist other lawyers with ethics matters. I occasionally represent the public in matters involving legal malpractice.

In addition to serving as an attorney, I have a consulting business under the name of Jennifer Ellis, JD. Under this business I assist law firms and other businesses with their online marketing.

I am a frequent speaker throughout the United States on issues involving ethics, legal marketing, social media, websites and more. I am the author of WordPress in One Hour for Lawyers and the chapter on Social Media for the ABA Solo and Small Firm Law Practice Technology Guide.
