Ellen has represented me in several legal matters. The first time, six years ago, she negotiated a complicated settlement agreement with my former employer that involved payment from an Irrevocable Trust, which contained complex tax issues. Throughout the negotiations, Ellen advised me of the risks and the alternatives available, presented me with the most cost effective way to proceed, kept me apprised of the latest developments, and always promptly answered my emails. Through her expertise, tenacity, and firm stance with opposing counsel, Ellen obtained a settlement that far exceeded my expectations.

Last year, I was to be deposed, but was bed-ridden in Florida due to a spinal injury. Ellen arranged with counsel for a Sunday deposition, took a Friday red-eye flight from San Francisco to Key West, Florida, prepped me on Saturday afternoon, sat with me through the two hour deposition on Sunday, and was on a plane three hours later back to California; she billed me for only three hours, plus airfare. Ellen is not only professional, ethical, trustworthy and knowledgeable in her field; she is also warm, caring and her client's best interest is always paramount. Thank-you Ellen!
