I'm Ellen Hirshman and thank you for taking the time to check me out on avvo. I have been handling cases throughout Ohio for the past 30 years, as well as some other states. I enjoy representing families, although the reason they initially contact me is usually tragic. I take great pride in representing my clients and helping them and their families put the pieces of their lives back together.
I am married to Toby, and together we have 3 sons. Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my extended family, especially watching my son, Noah, play hockey. I am actively involved with several legal organizations.
Please call me or email me with any questions you may have.
Licensed since 1982
You could not have a better advocate on your side than attorney Ellen Hobbs Hirshman. I had the great pleasure of working for Ellen as an associate attorney, including through a Jury Trial which resulted in a very successful verdict. Ellen presented the facts of the case in a powerful, clear, and meaningful way and truly cared for the family she represented. I would highly recommend Ellen to anyone who needs representation.
