In addition to health care law, Ellen is a mediator and is on the FINRA panel of arbitrators. She is also retained as an expert in insurance coverage and claims handling issues.

Before branching out on her own, Ellen worked in the general litigation practice group at a large Mississippi firm. There, she focused on civil defense for both first- and third-party insurance claims with an emphasis on special investigation, as well as fire claims and suspected arson. She was also heavily involved in Hurricane Katrina bad faith litigation, where she was the lead attorney in a multitude of mediations. She briefed and argued motions and participated in settlement conferences, depositions and various court appearances.
