Attorney Ebony L. Ellis

Ms. Ellis is an Associate at the Law Office of Alan A. Crawford. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from Old Dominion University (cum laude) in Criminal Justice and Political Science, and a Juris Doctor degree from Howard University School of Law.

She was also a member of the Huver I. Brown Trial Advocacy Moot Court Team and served as the law clerk to the Honorable Marcella A. Holland, Administrative Judge for the Circuit Court of Baltimore City.

As an associate at the Law Offices of Alan Crawford, Ms. Ellis’ primary area of practice is criminal litigation. She handles matters before judges and juries in state and federal courts in Michigan. She has experience representing clients charged with homicide, armed robbery, possession and distribution of child pornography, possession and distribution of controlled substances, home invasion, domestic violence, child abuse, and operating while intoxicated.
