About Linda L. Ellison, Senior Litigation Attorney

Albuquerque divorce attorney Linda L. Ellison has a strong desire to help people and believes family law is a natural fit to do that.

“People who have family law issues are going through an intensely emotional time and need someone to help guide them through that process by giving them sound legal and practical guidance while helping them craft workable solutions based on their goals,” Ms. Ellison said.

Ms. Ellison has a tremendous amount of compassion for people going through the emotional and financial turmoil, uncertainty, and fear that are inherent in the legal system. She understands the process is not quick and that litigation takes time, energy, and money.

“How long it takes, how much of your energy you have to invest, and the amount of money you pay are all linked to how many issues you and the other side can resolve without court and how much you need the court to resolve,” she said. “I am here to help you through every step of the process as we discuss your options, possible outcomes, and plan for the future.”


Ms. Ellison is licensed to practice in New Mexico.


Ms. Ellison earned her Juris Doctor from the University of New Mexico. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Saint Mary’s College.

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, Ms. Ellison practiced family law, bankruptcy, and personal injury.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
