Statewide and Nationwide Representation
Based in Anchorage, Mr. Ellis represents Alaskan residents statewide in negotiations and in contested court proceedings. He regularly serves clients in Wasilla, Palmer, Valdez, Seward, Kenai, Kodiak and surrounding communities of Cook Inlet and Prince William Sound. He also assists clients in outlying communities in every district of Alaska, often through e-mail, phone and fax.
Mr. Ellis is knowledgeable about the special issues in military divorce and family law. He routinely represents Army, Air Force and Coast Guard personnel stationed in Alaska, as well as civilian spouses and ex-spouses of military members.
Alaska has a highly transient population — military personnel and people in the oil and shipping industries who come and go. That means that many clients who no longer live in Alaska may have divorce, custody and child support matters under the jurisdiction of the Alaska courts. Mr. Ellis represents women and men throughout the United States and, in many cases, appears for out-of-state clients before the Alaska courts or arranges for a client’s participation in Alaska court proceedings by teleconference.

It is important that your attorney understands the nuances of the law and tendencies of the local courts. Maurice Ellis was born and raised in Anchorage and has practiced here as a divorce and custody lawyer since 1993. He can answer any question about your rights under the law, and he can give you a dependable projection of how your case will ultimately be resolved.
