The National Association of Distinguished Counsel
David Ellin, of the Law Office of David Ellin, has been selected to the 2015 list as a member of the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel. NADC is an organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards of legal excellence. Its mission is to objectively recognize the attorneys who elevate the standards of the Bar and provide a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate.
Members are thoroughly vetted by a research team, selected by a blue ribbon panel of attorneys with podium status from independently neutral organizations, and approved by a judicial review board as exhibiting virtue in the practice of law. Due to the incredible selectivity of the appointment process, only the top one percent of attorneys in the United States are awarded membership in NADC. This elite class of advocates consists of the finest leaders of the legal profession from across the nation.
Membership into The National Trial Lawyers Association: Top 40 under 40 is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young lawyer under the age of 40.

“As a child I would often visit his law office and developed a real admiration for the way in which he helped people who had been seriously injured and for the procedures and traditions of the judicial system,” he said.
He worked at the firm beginning in his teens and throughout college and law school.
Wanting exposure to areas of the law other than personal injury and medical malpractice, Ellin became a Baltimore City assistant state’s attorney for three years, and after returning to his grandfather’s firm for three years, he opened up the Law Office of David Ellin, P.C. in 2004.
Mr. Ellin mainly handles cases involving personal injury, including car accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice and birth injury. He also does pro bono work for those who cannot afford a lawyer.
“I always try to defuse difficult or intense situations with humor, and through humor, compassion and patience I’ve been able to resolve matters that most others would consider lost causes,” Ellin said.
