    I visited the offices of Coleman Ellis back in 2020 and the first thing that they did was make me feel like they cared about what I was dealing with. His secretary Mrs. Doreen Bruce was excellent in explaining all of the details and phases of my bankruptcy process. They made me feel very comfortable I immediately knew that I’d chosen the right people to handle my case.

    Attorney Coleman Ellis is a very effective, thorough, and efficient Attorney; his professional attitude and attention to detail literally helped save my home from foreclosure. I have nothing but great things to say about him and his staff.

    Morris W.

    Coleman Ellis, our attorney and utmost professional, not only helped us navigate through a foreign process to us, he also was an encourager and someone we completely trusted to act in our best interest. While we never ever anticipated being in bankruptcy, life happens and unexpectedly throws curve balls your way sometimes. If you find yourself in need of a bankruptcy attorney, I highly recommend Coleman Ellis.

    Linda S.

    I needed a few legal documents prepared so I reached out to Mr. Cook. He was very welcoming and provided me with good legal advice. The documents were prepared in a matter of a few days, which was amazing. I really liked his down to earth personality, and great work ethic.

    I would definitely consider him again in the future, and would recommend his services to others.


    Coleman gave me sound advice on how to proceed with my case. He didn’t beat around the bush or try to sugarcoat anything. He addressed all of my concerns and answered all my questions quickly and efficiently. My case was handled in a timely manner, and I feel I received the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Coleman!


    I worked with Mr. Cook to create a trust and some powers of attorney documents. Mr. Cook and everyone I encountered was very polite, professional, and helpful. It was incredibly easy to set up an appointment and get the documents I needed in a timely fashion. I also appreciated their thoroughness in explaining everything to me. Thank you!


    Very Professional and Friendly. They will go the extra mile to help their Clients. Very pleasant and helpful. They will work with you about the payments, and provide great advice. I had a legal issue late in the evening and they arrived after the normal business hours to provide me with help. I couldn’t ask for more. Having them as an attorney is like having a friend or family member as an attorney.


    When we think of healing and or a spiritual journey, financial health never comes to mind. I started this journey to heal all my body, mind and soul 3 years ago. I had to purge all of the negativity in me physically, emotionally, and mentally out. As I grew in my faith and my journey continued, I learned that to truly continue to heal, I needed to file bankruptcy. I met Attorney Coleman and his paralegal Doreen 3 years ago, they handled me and all my baggage with compassion and professionalism.

    They were extremely Patient, understanding, non judgmental, and Simplified everything to my understanding. I will be forever grateful for them helping me restart my life.
