I cannot more highly recommend Ms. Suzie Ellis-Hoyle and her firm. Ms. Ellis-Hoyle helped me navigate a difficult divorce from my wife and obtain custody of my child.

Thank you Suzie!

You were extremely professional! You were always well prepared and always had a command of the facts as they related to the case. Your legal strategy was spot on – we didn’t waste time on peripheral issues but stayed focused on what was important.You were always accessible and responsive and that was really calming for me while going thru this tough time.You were very ethical!

I couldn’t have done this without you, I wish you and your staff the best and thank you so much for delivering me the best outcome with my case.



Dawn de Klerk was literally my saving grace. I won’t disclose details because they involve other people – also innocent and don’t need to be mentioned. What matters is that Dawn – for no personal gain—devoted untold hours to helping us.  She has the skills and the heart that we all hope we will encounter in an hour of need. My recommendation for Dawn de Klerk is of the highest order. She will listen and she will care.



I highly recommend this firm. My experience was with Ms. Ellis-Hoyle. Knowing that a family member was in trouble, (no fault of her own)….. I luckily knew an Attorney that had been a former Prosecutor and he referred me to her. He said she was nice but would not let power and money get the best of us. We saw her in court fight unusual circumstances and repeatedly came out on top of our case. She is a caring person that understands the individual and considers what an individual needs. She is loyal to her oath and in my family’s experience there wasn’t much she had go past her, if anything. Spending so much time with her, we also have become friends. I consider her a blessing to my family.

She didn’t know it but I did checked her Martindale-Hubbell rating and saw she was at the top! If I read it right, you have to be above average to be considered.

During my divorce process, Dawn de Klerk and Brittany Young provided me with clear and accurate legal information and strong advocacy at every step of the process.  They were incredibly responsive and took care of every detail in a very timely way.  And, just as important to me during an emotional and difficult time, they treated me with dignity, kindness, and respect.  I felt like I was their most important client; I’d be willing to guess that every client feels like that.  I appreciate both their professional excellence and their personal warmth and integrity.

Ms. Ellis-Hoyle is a very hard working and smart attorney who always goes the extra mile to help her clients. I have needed her services a couple of times and have been impressed with the amount of care and attention she has given to my cases. Both of my cases were very difficult, but Ms. Ellis-Hoyle achieved the best possible outcome each time. I have recommended her to many others and will continue to do so.

You would search long and hard to find a better attorney!



I am so grateful that I chose Decatur attorney Dawn De Klerk to represent me in my divorce from a very long-term marriage.  She was very attentive, reassuring, thorough, and worked very hard to negotiate the best possible settlement agreement for me. She also was very straightforward and told me what, realistically, I could ask for and expect to get.   After the divorce, she also followed up with both a phone call and a detailed reminder letter outlining the steps that now should be taken, such as changing utilities and beneficiaries, etc. I would, without any hesitation, highly recommend her services!

Getting a divorce is one of the most stressful situations that could occur in a person’s lifetime. You want a lawyer that is honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable and keep you well informed of all procedure at all times.  Making sure that you understand what, why and how all things are done.  This is why I highly recommend the Law firm of Ellis Hoyle King de Klerk LLC, because they are all of the above and more.

I would like to thank you so very much. You are SO Amazing!  I cannot find words to say how much I thank you for your dedication. I love you for that.  The entire experience was a journey that I never want to experience again in life. I do not wish divorce on any one, however you’re the #1 ATTORNEY FOR THE JOB. Suzie again words cannot express my emotions inside.  Thank you soooooooo soooooo very much. My experience with you was great! I know even if I didn’t get my entire request it still would have been a great journey. You listened and you took my case as if it where your very own. Again, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!
