Mr. Ellis is an amazing attorney! My first impression of him was that he was a "go getter." I knew he would work hard for me, which he did. Matt is a very competent attorney And I would definitely recommend him to any of my family or friends. If I ever have a need again, Matt will be the first attorney I will call

Matthew Ellis never made a wrong move for us. He took our case (one that several other "high-powered" attorneys had declined because it was too "complex"). He understood the facts quickly, he was professional, bright, and supported us 100%. He worked very, very hard. The outcome was a good and fair settlement for us, and Matthew earned every cent of his fee. If we could rate him higher than "5" we would. Outstanding, honorable person and professional. We'll always, always be grateful to him.

I had an employment case where I was unjustly let go. I called Mr. Ellis' office in December and he had me come in immediately even though it was during the holidays. After reviewing my case he assured me that I was not at fault and that he believed strongly in my case. Just hearing that information from him made me feel very comfortable. He explained to me in detail the steps that would proceed. He kept me informed of every move he made with my past employers. I was very impressed with him when we went to mediation. He and his partner Dennis had taken control of the room and left me feeling very protected when I had felt so vulnerable in the past around my past employers. He assured me again that he believed in me and knew I was telling the truth and what my past employers did to me was wrong. I did not settle my case that day, but I left feeling as though I had already won. We did resolve my case later in the year but, I felt the whole way that I was in good hands and believed Mr. Ellis had my best interest. It put me at ease knowing I had a confident, knowledgeable, trustworthy attorney with me through the process. I will use Mr. Ellis' services again if I ever need to in the future and I do recommend him to my friends and family.

I was very impressed with Mr. Ellis at our first meeting for my employment law case. I had several qualities I was looking for in an attorney and he had all of them. Mr. Ellis has two excellent qualities worth mentioning and one is his knowledge of employment law and the other is the exceptional way he relates to his clients. He has a way of making you feel relaxed in his presence as he prepares you for the many facets involved in your legal case. After interviewing with him in reference to my case I knew I wanted him to represent me. The firm is very professional which is felt from first meeting the receptionist in the lobby. Also, not having alot of legal knowledge and full of questions Mr. Ellis has also shown the patience and understanding that I was looking for in my representation.

Mr. Ellis out performed my expectations as my lawyer. He was not only courteous and respectful of the sensitive information regarding my case; he outshined in his ability to be a determined individual to fight for his client and not stand back while the other ‘side’ took ground. Mr. Ellis holds to confidentiality regardless of the case matter he did not once make his client, myself, feel like my case was unwarranted, or a waste of his or the firms time. During my meetings with Mr. Ellis, he sought to give specific attention to his client and the detail of the case in which he refused to squander based upon the evidence given to him. His performance was equally matched in his effective writings and skillful interviewing techniques during depositions.
Mr. Ellis holds the belief that when you are his client, you will be well informed; held true Mr. Ellis never left me out of the loop of important information. I consistently received calls, emails and letters without fail informing me of our case, its progress and potential outcome. During my case I was never given false hope regarding the potential outcome of the case, Mr. Ellis, was straight forward with the details so that he did not miss lead his client in any manner. Mr. Ellis fought for my rights, harder than expected. His determination and skillful tactics during depositions with his smooth ‘interviewing’ techniques and demeanor caused the other side to ‘crack’ and spill information that they sought to keep hidden.
Mr. Ellis is an attorney who I would again use without conviction, if the need ever arose.

Matthew helped us in a two year suit against our franchisor. He and Dennis Steinman successfully helped mediate a settlement for us. Very happy with the outcome...
