A good friend of mine got me in touch with Ms. Pansky for a serious legal matter that I will not disclose on this site. To sum up, a group of us were wrongfully accused of unethical behavior in an academic setting. Ellen was patient, knowledgeable and gave us excellent legal advice. She did not sugarcoat anything or make any false promises. In the end, we were exonerated by the Committee and it could not have happened without her fine legal work. If you are sued for anything, wrongfully accused, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact her!!! She is bright, a great lawyer, extremely professional and a very nice person!
