Surplus Proceeds from Sale

A unique practice area of The Ellison Law Firm is representing foreclosed persons in the area of Surplus Proceeds. Often after a foreclosure sale, there are surplus funds available after all the costs are paid. The foreclosed person may very well be entitled to those funds, and not even know that the funds are available. Our office has represented countless number of clients in many different counties in retrieving funds on behalf of our clients. This practice area requires a knowledge of real estate and civil law, which makes The Ellison Law Firm uniquely qualified to represent those who qualify.

Child Support

Are you behind on your child support? At The Ellison Law Firm, we know that Due Process stills applies in these cases and effective representation is necessary. We are here to help you get things back on track and obtain the best possible outcome.

Many citizens attempt to handle their own traffic matters. Without knowledge of North Carolina’s traffic laws, this representation can often result in a far worse predicament. Allow The Ellison Law Firm to avoid those mistakes for you by using our knowledge of the law and successful representation of thousands of traffic matters.

Criminal Law

An effective advocate is vital when your liberty may be at stake. At The Ellison Law Firm, we have tried cases in both District and Superior courts, comprising numerous bench and jury trials.

We work tirelessly to zealously represent our client’s best interests.
