Mr. Ellem was very courteous and professional in assisting me with my legal issues. He made me feel comfortable, was always responsive to my calls and emails, and followed-through with everything he said he would. I recommend Mr. Ellem to all my friends and family, or to anybody in need of excellent representation.

Attorney John Ellem and his staff were very professional and helpful during a very trying time in my life. Mr. Ellem worked extremely hard to ensure that I was able to remain in my home, avoid foreclosure, and secure a loan modification for me. Mr. Ellem knows the mortgage laws and is definitely the attorney you want on your side in a situation like this.

If you want to know how good a lawyer is, take a look at how long they have been in practice, read some of their Avvo answers to consumer questions, read what their clients and other lawyers have said about them in their reviews, look for awards and recognition and particularly their professional associations and speaking engagements. And when you do all that, you will see what I already know from experience with him, John is very likely the best in the state when it comes to consumer protection law and bankruptcy law. He knows the legal system and how to handle a courtroom. If you need help, he's the one I recommend in West Virginia. Period.
