Our company is truly blessed to have found Ellis. When we were referred to him, we had struggled for over two years to reach a settlement agreement with a surety company.
Ellis eagerly took our case and jumped right in. He is extremely thorough and aggressive with defendants, and it is obvious he works (at any hour of the day or night) to achieve maximum results for us. He maintains constant communication and ALWAYS responds to an e-mail or phone call in a timely manner. Ellis explains legal terms and actions thoroughly to help us better understand the process. He is well organized, and he does not use our time or resources frivolously. In the surety bond case, he produced overwhelming results within a few months. To say we were thrilled with both Ellis and the results is an understatement.
Even though Ellis possesses tremendous work ethic, it is his heart that separates him from the rest. Ellis treats us like a part of his family, expressing genuine concern for our personal and professional well being. We have given Ellis tremendous accolades in our business community and continuously recommend him to our peers. We are excited to partner with him for years to come.
