The law firm of Ellis Cupps & Herrin has been on the Old Courthouse Square in Cassville, Missouri, since 1928, when Royle Ellis first opened his law office. From a partnership between Royle Ellis and his son Joe Ellis, the firm has grown and changed over the years. Donald L. Cupps joined Joe Ellis in 1981, and David A. Cole joined the firm in 1992. Joe Ellis passed away in 2005, but the firm of Ellis Cupps & Cole continued. In 2010, Cordelia F. Herrin joined the firm. In 2021, Missouri Governor Mike Parson appointed David A. Cole as 39th Circuit Presiding Judge, and the firm has changed again, now with three attorneys whose experience continues to cover a wide breadth of legal services.
