Andrew Ellis’ success is a result of the rigorous work ethic and self-discipline indicative of a former stint in the U.S. Army- and before that, the poise and quick thinking under pressure of a onetime craps dealer in the casinos of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
When he first opened his legal practice, Andy struggled to make ends meet and keep his doors open. However, he soon discovered a natural talent and passion for protecting consumers, which resulted in some high-value settlements and verdicts early on in his legal practice; a trend he continues to maintain today.
Andy’s dogged protection of consumers in California began with his mother’s advice, who, as a first-generation immigrant, taught him that the opportunities for the common man were as great if not greater than those of the corporations and insurance companies that tried to take advantage of them. From these teachings, Andy gravitated toward a career wherein he could protect the rights of others.
Over the years, there have been many trials which resulted in the recovery of millions of dollars. In fact, Andy has won over a quarter billion dollars on behalf of clients throughout his career as a Los Angeles personal injury attorney
Today, as the founder and senior partner of Ellis Law Corporation he heads a team of experienced litigators representing clients in a wide variety of serious personal injury lawsuits including automobile accidents, elder abuse and product liability.
He attributes his success to two qualities: a relentless determination to win on behalf of his client and a commitment to playing fair and courteously with the opposition. Indeed, opposing counsel has described him as “a pleasure to work with;” “cordial and professional.”
The legal profession runs deep within the Ellis bloodline. Mr. Ellis’ great-grandfather, in addition to founding the New York City firm Ellis, Ellis & Ellis (which closed its doors in 1993) was Theodore Roosevelt’s lawyer and head of the New York City Republican party at the turn of the century.
With a degree in business and economics from UCLA, Mr. Ellis began his legal education at Seton Hall University School of Law in New Jersey. He later transfered to Loyola the following year where he ultimately earned his JD. Ellis opened his personal injury practice fresh out of law school from an apartment he shared with roommates for $220 in rent. Soon, he teamed up with a law school pal to take 30 cases from an attorney friend who had no wish to litigate them.
