    • I do not recommend Donald Ellison.
    • Donald handled my Child Custody matter.

    He wad unprepared every time. He never returns phone calls. He doesnt speak up or defend when he should. He did absolutely nothing for me & my family except cost alot of money. If I wanted to stand there & not say anything I could of done it myself for free. Totally terrible lawyer & very disappointed.

    • I recommend Donald Ellison.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I have been using the services of Mr. Ellison for over 3 years as he has been assisting me in a very difficult divorce proceeding. He has been very aggressive, and has obtained for me very favorable results. I would recommend Mr. Ellison on any difficult family law matter.

    • I do not recommend Donald Ellison.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Ellison lacks the assertiveness necessary to be an efficient attorney. He is difficult, sometimes impossible to reach, not returning calls or emails in a timely manner, or at all. He avoid answering questions and is deliberately vague. During court appearances he was either late or appeared within seconds of the appropriate time. His counsel prior was minimal at best. He was often unreachable during the days prior to the meetings. I attended each feeling uncertain. Do not hire this attorney.
