About Us

Dennis Gerard Ellis, Founder And President Of Ellis Law, P.C.

Attorney Dennis Gerard Ellis is the founder of the firm, Ellis Law, P.C. As a young man, Mr. Ellis was seriously injured in a car accident that was not his fault. This life-changing experience motivated him to go to law school, so that he could protect the rights of victims injured due to the carelessness of others.

Mr. Ellis first earned an Associate in Applied Science degree from Dutchess Community College, and then a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Pace University. Mr. Ellis then earned his Doctor of Law degree from Cornell Law School.

Upon graduation, Mr. Ellis immediately accepted employment in the personal injury field. After two years of training at a large firm that defended insurance companies, which taught Mr. Ellis how those companies operate in their attempts to defeat the claims of personal injury victims, he founded his own firm dedicated solely to protecting the legal rights of those victims. To this day, Mr. Ellis continues to champion the rights of victims in matters of personal injury law.

Mr. Ellis has a successful track record in personal injury law spanning more than three decades. Since beginning his legal career, he has protected the interests of his clients in numerous cases ranging from motor vehicle accident claims to other personal injury matters such as construction accidents, fall downs, defective drugs and dog bites. These have included extremely complex product liability claims, such as one he brought on behalf of a double arm amputee victim in which he sued 29 different defendants.

Mr. Ellis is proud to have worked on cases in various capacities at Ellis Law, P.C., his prior firms or with co-counsel nationwide, which have resulted in settlements or awards for his clients totaling more than $150,000,000.00 (150 Million Dollars). Because each case is different, obviously, prior results cannot guarantee a similar outcome. However, Mr. Ellis does guarantee that your case will receive the same level of experience, dedication and hard work that went into each of these prior cases! Many attribute his firm's success to his and his associate attorneys' hard-hitting and aggressive approach toward fighting against insurance companies, which they balance with their understanding and compassion toward their clients.

Client-Centered Legal Representation

At Ellis Law, P.C., many of our clients benefit from our "Client Relations Program." As an injury victim himself and a lawyer who has dedicated his life to helping other victims like you, Mr. Ellis has a special insight into what you are going through. He has formed this program and other policies at Ellis Law to ensure that everyone who comes through our doors receives quality service and personal attention. Mr. Ellis and his associate attorneys believe clients should always be treated as people — not just another case number.

Each client is an individual who deserves legal representation that puts his or her interests first. Understanding that no two cases are alike, just like no two clients are alike, Mr. Ellis and the lawyers and dedicated staff at Ellis Law, P.C., provide each client with individualized, undivided attention and a commitment toward pursuing the best possible result — from initial consultation to the case's final resolution.

We are always striving to lessen our clients' worries. Our team of lawyers will deal with the insurance companies, courts, medical providers, police agencies and other authorities so you can focus on getting better. Leave all of the work and worry about your legal rights to us.

As Mr. Ellis says in his letter to injury victims:

"We recognize that you are innocent victims and that you have placed your trust in us. Please understand that we understand what you are going through. As an innocent victim of a reckless driver myself, I have 'been there' and know exactly what you are feeling. I want you to also feel comforted to know that we are here to comfort you.

If you retain Ellis Law, P.C., to represent you, we will give you the same advice we give each of our clients — concentrate on your life, your family and your health. We will take care of everything else. Leave all of the work and worry about your legal rights to us. Trust us. Believe in us. Have faith in us as your attorneys. Understand that we will always do what we believe is best for you and your case.

Helping you is our job. In fact, it is our only job — guiding injury victims like you through one of the most difficult times of your lives, with care and concern — while fighting aggressively to the limits of the law to obtain compensation and justice for each of you."
