About me

ELLIS, known locally as "Mr.DUI", is one
of the pre-eminent DUI attorneys in Southern California.  With
34 years of legal experience, more than twenty years of his
career has been dedicated to defending DUI cases. Mr.
Ellis concluded that the attorney who limits his practice to one area
of the law inevitably gains sufficient expertise to have the upper hand
in litigation. In the words of Russell Cromwell: "Find
something, anything, and do it better than anyone else in the world,
and the public will eventually find out about you and beat a path to
your door
