    Mr. Ellahie is a very seasoned lawyer and a well-known and well-respected member of the legal community. As a colleague I have consulted with him on numerous occasions. He is a guru in his areas of practice. He is always willing to help and responds promptly despite his hectic schedule. I am impressed by his professionalism, depth of knowledge, acumen, far-sightedness and soundness of advice. He analyzes an issue from various angles and suggests a comprehensive solution. He is one of the very few lawyers I can safely refer any one to as I know that my referrals will be in the ablest of hands.
