Ellen B. Flynn

Of Counsel

I am passionate about helping all kinds of people who need a voice in their battle for justice.


Ellen, of Counsel of The Yost Legal Group, has 25 years of experience as a trial attorney in many types of cases, with million+ dollar verdicts in some of Maryland’s toughest jurisdictions.  She is a leader in the legal community and a motivated advocate for the civil justice system. Ellen has served as President of the Maryland Association for Justice (MAJ), an organization of over 1300 trial attorneys, where she dedicated her time outside of representing her clients to improving and protecting the civil justice system through legislative advocacy and the professional development of trial lawyers. She has testified in Annapolis before our state legislators, stood up to large corporate health systems in legislative and legal battles, and authored numerous articles concerning the practice of law and protecting access to justice for all people. She also serves as a member of the Board for the American Association for Justice.

As a trial attorney, she has represented victims of preventable medical mistakes, nursing home abuse and neglect, and other personal injuries. She has recently joined Yost Legal Group to lead the sexual assault practice group.
