    Attorney Profile

    As an attorney at Bennett & Ellison, P.C., in Annapolis, Maryland, James L. Ellison, II devotes his practice to helping individuals in Anne Arundel, Prince George’s and Charles counties with a variety of legal matters. Mr. Ellison works with particular vigor on behalf of those who have been accused by the state of committing felonies or misdemeanors or who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties. He developed this strong urge to advocate on behalf of his clients as he prepared for his legal career by working as a paralegal and watching cases being argued in Maryland courtrooms and workers' compensation hearings. 

    After earning his bachelor’s degree magna cum laude from the University of Baltimore in 2009, Mr. Ellison attended the University of Baltimore School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor cum laude in 2011. He then went on to be admitted to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Mr. Ellison is a member of the American Bar Association, the Maryland State Bar Association, the Anne Arundel Bar Association, the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys' Association, the American Association for Justice, and the Maryland Association for Justice, Inc.

    Mr. Ellison believes that a criminal defense attorney should not be reluctant to argue in court or speak before a jury. He was able to hone his courtroom skills while attending law school by participating in the Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition as well as the American Association of Justice’s National Trial Competition. Mr. Ellison also learned more about the way criminal justice is dispensed in Maryland by securing a position as a supervised assistant public defender through his law school's clinical externship program.
