David Ellison

Attorney David Ellison is the Founding Attorney of Ellison Law LLC. Attorney Ellison created the firm because he believes that when you are going through the legal system, it is important to have a lawyer who treats you with compassion, respect, and dignity. He believes that your criminal defense lawyer should be honest, strategic and provide a high-quality legal service. This stems from his belief that his clients are people who deserve to have their day in court. His top priority is protecting his client’s rights, and he takes pride in fighting for his clients and treating his clients as human beings rather than another number in the system.

He understands whether you have a traffic ticket, a driver’s license suspension or a misdemeanor offense, when you are going through the legal system, your case is one of the most important things going on in your life. He has successfully defended the rights of his clients at jury trials, suppression hearings when police violated his client’s rights, and all other stages of a criminal case.
