I was born in Amarillo Texas in 1966 to Robert and Judy Eller. My family was what most would call "blue collar". Dad was a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force. Mom worked as a bookkeeper. Neither of my parents graduated high school, much less went to college. Nor did they have the money to pay for me to do so.
When I decided to give this college thing a try, I knew I'd have to work full time and raise my own money. Student loans? What? I never heard of them. My parents raised me under the philosophy of, "if you can't afford to pay for it... you can't have it".The idea of borrowing money to pay for something simply didn't occur to me as an option.
While fully supporting myself, I completed college with no debt, by waitressing and bartending. I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminology in 1990. I received a partial scholarship to begin law school in Miami, Florida. I transferred to John Marshall Law School in Chicago IL and graduated Cum Laude at the top of my class in 1993.
Upon Graduating, I moved to Las Vegas, in June of 1993. Since that time, I have practiced almost exclusively as a sole practitioner with my own firm focused on Criminal Law, until I was appointed as the City of Las Vegas, Municipal Court Traffic Commissioner in 2008. I held this possession for 2 1⁄2 years, and resigned in June of 2010.
Although I have enjoyed and excelled at Criminal Defense Law, the current economy has drawn my attention to another way I can use my experience and education to help others. I understand now, in this tragic economic climate, what a gift my parents gave me, in allowing me the opportunity to be responsible for myself. Once the extent of the foreclosure crises became clear, I felt a call to action. While representing several of the major banks such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America, I learned how they operate in modification situations and what they need from you, the Borrowers in order to say "YES" to your modification application.
I'm from Niagara Falls, New York but grew up here in the Las Vegas Valley, attending Palo Verde high School. I'm currently enrolled in classes at College of Southern Nevada with plans to advance my career in the legal field. Personally, I love football and enjoy watching the games with my family. Go Bills! I'm blessed to have the most amazing two year old son who keeps me very busy and fills me with joy. My desire to share that fun, results in me being the "prankster" of the office. I love making people laugh. Professionally, I've worked with Crystal Eller for 3 years now. The thing I enjoy most about working for Crystal, is she allows me to put my family and faith first. This office has become my second family and my second home. I also enjoy being in an environment where ethics are REQUIRED and hard work is simply part of everyone's daily routine. Crystal is a moral, fair and honest attorney. I have learned to have a determination to help our clients that not only provides results, but reflects who I am. Please, let me know how I can help you!
