David Ellin Named to The Daily Record Successful By 40 VIP List
“As a child I would often visit his law office and developed a real admiration for the way in which he helped people who had been seriously injured and for the procedures and traditions of the judicial system,” he said.
He worked at the firm beginning in his teens and throughout college and law school.
Wanting exposure to areas of the law other than personal injury and medical malpractice, Ellin became a Baltimore City assistant state’s attorney for three years, and after returning to his grandfather’s firm for three years, he opened up the Law Office of David Ellin, P.C. in 2004.
Mr. Ellin mainly handles cases involving personal injury, including car accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice and birth injury. He also does pro bono work for those who cannot afford a lawyer.
“I always try to defuse difficult or intense situations with humor, and through humor, compassion and patience I’ve been able to resolve matters that most others would consider lost causes,” Ellin said.
