Attorney Elizabeth A. Ellison

Elizabeth A. Ellison was born in Texas but spent her teenage years growing up in Alaska.  She entered the legal field at the age of 28, looking to help others navigate the court system during the most tumultuous and turbulent times in their lives.  Her desire to help others put her on the path to a career in family law early on in school.  

As the youngest in her family, Attorney Ellison honed her debate and oral argument skills long before entering a courtroom.  She has a frank and honest approach to both advising and advocating for her clients.  All of these skills combined to help Attorney Ellison earn the CALI Excellence Award in Criminal Law as well as an award for community service during her time at Boyd School of Law here in Las Vegas, Nevada.
