Attorney Profile

An attorney at Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid, P.C., Tobin D. Ellis focuses his practice on complex personal injury and wrongful death litigation. From the firm's office in Beverly Hills, California, he represents clients throughout the state who have been harmed by the negligence of others in motor vehicle collisions, construction site accidents, defective products, nursing home abuse, premises liability and medical malpractice. During his career, Mr. Tobin has also handled complex business litigation and insurance bad faith cases.

A California native, Mr. Ellis attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in 1996. He then pursued his legal studies at Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1999. After graduation, Mr. Ellis joined a well-known Los Angeles firm, where he provided defense counsel to insurers and their clients who were being sued for negligence. In 2004, he decided to become a plaintiff's attorney, and the experience that he previously obtained has helped him to anticipate the types of defense strategies that he now faces. He joined his current firm in 2015. Admitted to practice in California, Mr. Ellis is also admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Highly regarded by his peers, Mr. Ellis is frequently asked to speak before groups of fellow attorneys on topics ranging from elder abuse to government tort claims. A member of the board of governors of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, he is an active participant in several other professional organizations, including Consumer Attorneys of California, the American Association for Justice and the South Bay Bar Association.
