Ms Ellis, Esq did Florida ancillary probate on pre-deceased father's estate at the time of my mother's passing; then she did mother's Florida ancillary probate estate. Both estate probates were flawlessly accomplished in reasonable time. I add that Florida ancillary probate for low-value plot of undeveloped property is much more difficult & expensive then same procedure in say Virginia, but I cannot and do not attribute this deficit to Ms Ellis, Esq rather to the probate laws of the State of Florida. I readily & heartily recommend Ms Dawn Ellis, Esq for anyone's Florida ancillary probate needs. She did excellent work on my behalf. Thank you Ms Ellis, Esq.

Ms. Ellis was attentive to detail, easy to work with, and patient with my million questions. She was clear about exactly what was and was not included in the fixed rate quote, and came in under budget with tertiary expenses.

Dawn Ellis Ellis is a very professional, organized, thorough and responsive Probate Attorney. My Mom passed and I needed assistance to close out her Estate and when I checked with my family lawyer in Fort Lauderdale, he advised that his fee would be 10% of the Estate. That was not acceptable, so I found Dawn on-line. I was initially concerned because she is based on the other side of the state where I live; however, when speaking with her she advised that it would not be an issue as she regularly did Probate work in Fort Lauderdale (where I live). Dawn put me at ease by sending me very detailed instructions and information as to how to properly complete the probate court forms she sent and we did the entire probate process via e-mail, faxes and US Mail. And she was also available on the phone when needed. Her fees were very fair, simple and clear and ended up saving me and the Estate many thousands of dollars less than going through my family attorney. Dawn is a delight to work with and she got the job done in a very timely manner and at a very fair price. For all these reasons, I highly recommend Dawn Ellis for any of your Probate needs.

We contacted Dawn after finding her during an Internet search. We needed an attorney in Florida to do the legal work required to transfer the ownership of properties located in Port Charlotte and in Port Malabar from my Aunt to my brother and myself. These properties should have been included in my Aunt's estate, but were not. I reside in Michigan, and Dawn handled all of this as our sole legal representative in Florida. We did not have to travel there, and all legal issues pertaining to this matter were resolved by Dawn exactly as we wanted. She was always courteous and prompt in her repsonses, and clear as to what information she needed and what the costs for her services would be. We are very satisfied with Dawn's work and would recommend her to anyone with a similar legal issue to resolve.

I interviewed several lawyers in Florida and decided to go with Dawn because of one word; integrity.
That's what stood out to me compared to the others. She answered all my questions and told me things to check out that could help me before we even had a contractual agreement. She is very organized, prompt in her work and responses, and has a standard of excellence that makes her a good choice for a lawyer.

Dawn was very professional, patient and caring. She kept me informed every step of the way and everything was handled in a a timely manner, even when things kept popping up that I was aware of. I have recommended Dawn to people I know in Florida and would seek her out again if needed. You can't go wrong with Dawn representing you and your interests.

I called a number of probate attorneys recently when my father passed away. A few returned the inquiry but Ms. Ellis was not only responsive, but also very understanding during this difficult emotional period. She handled all my questions, kept me informed, was supportive, professional, kept things moving and did it all for a very fair fee. I cannot say enough about her legal services and professional, yet sensitive manner. If you have a need for a Probate attorney, I would give her my very highest recommendation!

Our family received a letter in the mail stating that a deceased family member left behind money in an account that we were unaware of and offered to handle all of the “details” for a fee which would be taken out of the refund we were due. After some research I did find that the letter was not a scam and that there was in fact an account in unclaimed monies available to us. Obtaining these funds sounded simple enough until I started calling around for legal advice and assistance. I opened the phone book and called multiple law offices before I ran across the phone number of Dawn Ellis. Each one of those other offices spoke to me as if I was only a dollar sign and certainly NONE of them gave me any advice, resources or options without first trying to schedule a consultation which may or may not be free. Ms. Ellis was the first person who took the time to explain how things like this work and even offered us other options without asking for anything at all in return. In addition to that she waited very patiently for us to get our other affairs in order before we decided on how to proceed.
Facing any legal issue is seldom enjoyable but the extra mile that Ms Dawn Ellis took with our family sure made the whole experience much more palatable! I have passed her name on to anyone asking for recommendations and will turn first to her should I need any legal assistance in the future.
Thank you Ms Ellis
