I felt very well supported by Gray and his team. Mine was a long process with many twists and turns and they kept me appraised of my options and their pros and cons in a very clear fashion. Their thoroughness was outstanding. I was lucky to have them recommended to me.

When I could not trust my own decisions Gray was a confident advisor. He took the worry and the emotion out of my hands. He sweated the small stuff as he artfully parlayed the law, his instincts, and sized up his opposition. He deftly created the best case for the most positive outcome. He delivered.

Gray is an exceptionally skilled attorney. Among the many things that makes Gray such an outstanding attorney is the attention to detail that is given to each individual. Gray takes an analytical approach and always has the client's best interests in her counsel. My personal experience with Gray has led to results that are above and beyond what was expected and continue to provide leverage. As a J.D. myself, I have referred many clients to Gray and in good conscience would not recommend anyone else when it comes to family law matters.

The attorneys actually found other cases to support my situation for the best possible outcome.
With their "thinking outside the box" method I was able to get a better outcome for monthly child support and an agreement that the out of pocket expenses would be shared based on each party's percentage on the child support worksheet. (modification of child support)
I wish I found this law firm in 2006 at the start of this child support process.
Extremely professional group of staff. Thank you!!!!

Gray Ellis and his firm are highly professional and very capable handling any family law issues like divorce, alimony, custody and division of marital property. I have practice Family Law in Durham for thirty years and have had many cases where the opposing party has been represented by Gray and his firm. They are dedicated to the interests of their clients but seek to minimize aggravation and bitterness while reaching a fair solution. He and his lawyers are extremely capable in trial when settlement cannot be reached. This firm has an excellent reputation in the legal community and its clients speak well of their experiences with the attorneys and support personnel of Ellis Family Law.

Gray is a very knowledgeable and detailed family law attorney. He always stays up to date (if not ahead) of the latest trends, case law and research in the family law practice. I often call upon Gray for his advice and guidance when dealing with issues I may be uncertain of or am seeking confirmation about a certain issue I am dealing with. Without hesitation I have referred and will continue to refer cases to Gray and his firm.
