I hired Alan Ellis to assist on a prisoner transfer treaty case for a client in federal prison. He is a well known name on the federal criminal side of things, and I have heard many good things. His credentials speak for themselves, and he is the author of the Federal Sentencing Guidebook, the only such book like it. I hired him at $625 an hour, which is the highest rate I have ever heard from an attorney personally.
After filling out the initial retainer paperwork and paying Mr Ellis his fees, he contacted my former attorney to gather more information on the case. 2 months went by, and I received no update or contact from Mr Ellis. I contacted him and asked for an update. He did not remember the case. I informed him that I no longer require his services, at which point he hung up the phone. I contacted his secretary to arrange for refund of a small part of my retainer.
Overall a negative and disappointing experience. I do not recommend Mr Ellis.
