Having tried more than 175 jury trials, Al Ellis’ experience as a personal injury attorney leads the way for Dallas lawyers. His list of professional and personal achievements exceeds most of his peers, though you may not know this thanks to his humble personality. After Ellis graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington and his service in the US Army, he obtained his J.D. from Southern Methodist University. While at SMU, he was Student Chief Counsel for the SMU Legal Clinic and a member of the board of editors for the Journal of Air Law and Commerce.
Today Ellis is a member of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, an elite organization comprised of only 500 members in the US; the American Board of Trial Advocates, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Dallas Bar Association, having served as President in 1990. He has also been recognized as a UTA Distinguished Alumni, Best Lawyers in America, D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas and the Justinian Award for Long-standing Community Service, to name a few.
