Expert Representation, Grounded In Service And Sacrifice
At law school, Mr. Ellis served as an editor for the law review and graduated near the top of his class. He then began practicing law in Jackson, Tennessee. He quickly gained a reputation as a fearsome courtroom advocate for his clients.
Soon, he began handling cases across West Tennessee. He achieved several notable recoveries for his clients, including $500,000 in a tractor-trailer case and $350,000 in a rear-end case where the victim suffered a cervical herniation. While living in Jackson, Mr. Ellis also served on the city council and eventually rose to the position of vice mayor.
Later, Mr. Ellis worked in Knoxville as an insurance defense attorney. This gave him deep insight into how insurance companies and their legal teams defend, evaluate, and eventually try or settle cases. Ultimately unsatisfied with working for the insurance companies against consumers, Mr. Ellis returned to his roots and once again began representing injured victims. Now he uses his knowledge of insurance defense strategies and tactics to fight for his clients more efficiently and aggressively than ever.
Mr. Ellis learned the value of compassion and sacrifice from his parents, two devoted Christians who spent their prime years of life operating orphanages and children’s homes and fostering children who had no family to care for them. As a result, he has a special passion for helping children who have been deprived of the protection and guidance of their parents.
Away from the office, Mr. Ellis’ dedication to his community and helping children in need still shines through. He and his wife Jennifer lead a children’s ministry at the Mountain Creek Church of Christ in Chattanooga. The couple regularly bring their two children to attend services at Mountain Creek, where Mr. Ellis also serves as a Bible class teacher and song leader.
