Weitz & Luxenberg
Tiffany R. Ellis has represented, among others, government entities and individuals against corporate wrongdoers, survivors of sexual abuse, and individuals injured or killed in motor vehicle crashes.
Currently, Ms. Ellis works as part of Weitz & Luxenberg’s opioid litigation team on behalf of nearly 60 Michigan cities and counties. She was a key member of the trial team that proved Walgreens substantially contributed to the creation of an opioid epidemic in San Francisco, resulting in a $230 million settlement from the company in addition to more than $120 million in settlements from other defendants.
Ms. Ellis also represents survivors of rape and other sexual trauma against their attackers and the institutions that should have protected them.
Ms. Ellis has also worked on other consumer and victim protection matters under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, against negligent nursing homes, and on behalf of clients injured by defective medical products.
Ms. Ellis is an experienced advocate both in and outside of the courtroom. In 2018, she was part of a two-person trial team that secured a more than $4 million verdict on behalf of family who lost their husband and father in a trucking crash that could have been avoided.
Due in part to that verdict, Ms. Ellis was recognized as the “most outstanding young trial lawyer in the country” by her peers when she was presented with the 2018 F. Scott Baldwin Award. In October 2019, Ms. Ellis was selected as part of the “Up & Coming Lawyers” Class of 2019 by Michigan Lawyers Weekly.
