Congratulations to Lawyers of Distinction member Al Ellis, Esq., of Dallas, Texas for receiving the DTLA title of Legal Legend. This is the first year DTLA has given this award. The 2019 Legends have 40+ years in practice and have dedicated their careers to achieving justice for those who have been harmed. This year’s Legends have also each brought us all closer to justice through one or more of the following: groundbreaking changes in the law, high profile trials that brought needed attention to important issues, service as bar leaders or in the legislature and mentoring generations of young lawyers.
