Some of California's most prestigious lawyers and law firms have turned to Ellis Law Group when faced with potential liability arising from claims of legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, ethics violations and/or malicious prosecution.  Our experience extends to hundreds of attorney liability cases and has earned us recognition from the peer-reviewed publications, such as Best Lawyers and SuperLawyers.

       Founding Partner, Mark E. Ellis, has repeatedly been recognized as one of America's leading professional malpractice defense attorneys by Best Lawyers of America.  Likewise, U.S. News World Report has ranked Ellis Law Group "First Tier" in the field of legal malpractice defense.  Recently, for the 14th consecutive year, Mr. Ellis was recognized by SuperLawyers as one of Northern California's top civil litigation attorneys.  Mr. Ellis is board certified as a specialist in legal malpractice law by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California.  He has also been named one of the best attorneys in Sacramento by Sacramento Magazine in the area of legal malpractice based upon the votes of his peers.

       While many of our legal malpractice cases have been settled out of court, we are known as a "go to" firm for clients seeking the best in trial advocacy in legal malpractice defense, but also on behalf of plaintiffs.  The firm has defended lawyers and/or law firms in over 40 trials, winning virtually every case which reached final decision by verdict, judgment or award.
