Mr.Robert is an EXCELLENT lawyer! He kept me updated through out my suit, he was on point with getting in touch with me, answered every question I had and made sure I understood then clearly. Everything went smooth and I didn't have any problems with Mr.Ellis at all.! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance. If I was to come across another lawsuit, I would personally have Mr.Ellis take care of it for me. :)

Moving Company Missing/Lost Items Claim
Mr.Ellis gave 110% to my case, even though I had a small claims case. He kept his word on everything he promised to do, by the date he promised. He made me feel as though my case mattered just as much as a multi-million dollar case. He kept me updated as things progressed. He understood my frustration in trying to resolve my claim with the moving company and their insurer and delt with them very professionally and speedily. He understood what I wanted and exceeded my expectation. I found Mr.Ellis through HyattLegal and this was the Best investment I have ever made!!!! Money well spent!!! The next time I have a legal problem I will seek him first!!!!
