Assisting Alaska Families in Divorce and Family Law Since 1993
Legal disputes involving family members can be very stressful and emotional, and most people are not familiar with the intricacies of family law. With this in mind, our goal at The Law Office of Maurice N. Ellis is to relieve some of the anxiety during legal proceedings, while making sure you understand your rights, your responsibilities and your realistic options.
Attorney Maurice Ellis practices exclusively in family law, and is known for his effective advocacy in contested divorce and high-conflict custody disputes. He represents men and women in Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer and south central Alaska, and in every outlying corner of the state. Many of Mr. Ellis’s clients are military personnel or their civilian spouses, and he regularly represents out-of-state clients throughout the lower 48 states who have family law matters taking place in Alaska.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
— Abraham Lincoln
