Ellen is a fantastic attorney. As a fellow attorney I have worked on cases collaboratively with Ellen, on cases where we each represented opposing parties, and I have witnessed her in court. Ellen is very skilled, well-informed, and committed to her clients' best-interests. I respect Ellen's work and recommend her highly.

I have represented creditors in several bankruptcy cases handled by Ellen Cheney and her law firm. In all matters, Ellen has vigorously represented the interests of her bankruptcy clients. Her responsiveness and professionalism have made working with Ellen a pleasure, and I am certain that these qualities also serve her clients well. I would feel very confident in referring individuals to Ellen’s office who are considering whether to file for bankruptcy protection.
