Not being a central player in the legal issues I discussed with Mr. Ellis, I cannot say that I hired him, but what I absolutely must say is that he combines great expertise with great humanity and wide, worldly-wise but (or 'and') empathetic perspective. This is a man I would trust to do the right thing. He heard the case of a family member, and the conversation clarified what actions to take (and not take), and I came away thinking very highly of Jeffrey Ellis and appreciative of his generosity with his time.

After eight years of litigation, taking my case to the door steps of the US Supreme Court, Jeff Ellis on October 5 2015 in Pierce County had the state remove the life without sentence they had given me over 13 plus years before. Jeff's brilliance and unrelenting pursuit of justice was on full display. The passion and care he had for my case and other cases that I am aware of tells of a man who is at the top when it comes to results. Today I sit here a free man because of Jeff and I would like to thank him for my freedom. I will always remember the joy and happiness my friends and family had that day in court.
Thank you so much to Jeff for the opportunity to let me shine with my new life. Redemption is a special gift and I will always work hard to show that I am truly a redeemable and changed man.
