About Me

ELLIS, known locally as "Mr.DUI", is one
of the pre-eminent DUI attorneys in Southern California.  With
34 years of legal experience, more than twenty years of his
career has been dedicated to defending DUI cases. Mr.
Ellis concluded that the attorney who limits his practice to one area
of the law inevitably gains sufficient expertise to have the upper hand
in litigation. In the words of Russell Cromwell: "Find
something, anything, and do it better than anyone else in the world,
and the public will eventually find out about you and beat a path to
your door

  • Jeffrey Kenneth Bullingham

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Ellis has practiced DUI law longer than I've been alive almost, but what really stands out about his practice (in addition to his vast legal knowledge in the practice area) is he truly cares about the well being and long term health of his clients. Regardless of whether someone is ultimately found guilty or innocent (and Mr Ellis has a great team of lawyers who can help you), it doesn't much matter if in another year or two a client makes the same mistake all over again only this time the circumstances and the consequences are much worse. Mr. Ellis wants not only to win in court, but help insure his clients make positive lifestyle changes so it never happens again.
