Marshall H. Ellis joins Hornthal, Riley, Ellis & Maland, LLP

The Law Firm of Hornthal, Riley, Ellis & Maland, LLP has announced that Marshall H. Ellis has joined the firm.

Before joining the firm, Ellis served as an assistant federal public defender for the Eastern District of North Carolina for six years. One of those years was spent on detail to the United States Sentencing Commission in Washington, D.C., where he was the visiting assistant federal public defender to the commission.

Ellis is a cum laude graduate of Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law (2014), where he served as an articles editor for the Campbell Law Review. In 2011, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Davidson College, where he lettered in varsity football.

Ellis will primarily practice out of Hornthal, Riley, Ellis & Maland’s Elizabeth City office. He is licensed to practice law in the state of North Carolina and has also been admitted to practice before courts in the Eastern District of North Carolina and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. His practice will focus on criminal defense in both federal and state courts and civil litigation.

Having grown up in Edenton and graduated from Lawrence Academy in Bertie County, Ellis is excited to return to northeastern North Carolina.
