Vernon L. Ellicott

Previously, I worked for firms in downtown Los Angeles until I became a sole practitioner in 1996 at the Westlake Office. We opened the Valencia office in 1998.

I have broad experience, and I work a lot. It is my wealth of experience that helps me to be a better lawyer.

I am good in court, and I'm good at dealing with people.

I'm flexible, and I tailor my style according to the needs of each individual client.

Personal interests:

I'm a cyclist, and I enjoy my Harley, church and family (6 kids of my own).
