Ensuring your freedom:

We personally speak with witnesses to ensure that they are telling the whole truth. We examine the alleged crime scene thoroughly, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. We also pore over police records and bring in experts to challenge the prosecution's theories.

Nothing is more important than your freedom. If you need a defense attorney who is dedicated to your case, contact us today.

Protecting our clients for more than 30 years:
Paris K. Ellis, Attorney at Law represents clients in the following criminal matters:

If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes - such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How your felony charge is defended can make the difference between life and death for you. We have more than 30 years of experience handling felony charges, and are committed to attaining the best possible outcome for you.

Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting us represent you.

Motor vehicle offenses:
If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license or vehicular manslaughter, we can help. We also assist clients who need to get their drivers licenses restored or to fight traffic tickets.

Drug crimes:
Charges of trafficking, distributing or possessing illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help eliminate or minimize the charges against you.

Sexual offenses:
Rape and sexual assault cases are among the hardest for defendants to win. We have the experience and skills to successfully litigate these cases. Contact us today.

Sealing and expungement of records:
A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job, or traveling abroad. We can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or get those records sealed so that you can move on with your life.
