Retained Mr. Ellman for my case which was rather complex, due to severe and life threatening injuries, that paralyze my left arm and fractured my pelvis, rendering me and my family completely destitute. After 5 long years of protracted litigation against to high profile defendants with high profile lawyers, Mr Ellman was able to secure what my family and I thought was a fair settlement. The defendants were underinsured but were loaded, but too greedy to pay what they owed until Mr. Ellman litigated the hell out of the case and brought them to their knees.
Mr. Ellman was there for me and my family when we needed him the most and didn't let the other lawyers step all over me. Althought hey tried with all their might.
This lawyer is unethical. He took over a year to work a simple case and it turns out that he took his portion and did not pay all parties concerned. i am now receiving phone calls regarding payment for a case 3 years old. Mr. Ellman was difficult to contact. But eventually the case was settled. I was assured that all parties were paid and that there would be no further action needed on my part. This summer 2010, I started receiveing bills from one of the doctors I saw during my case. I was informed that the lawyer did not pay them and they were not able to contact his office. The contract I signed with Mr. Ellman stated that he was responsible for covering all of the bills regarding the case. I was assured that this was done and he did receive his payment.
