Elaine helped me through a formal separation. She was the second attorney I worked with on this settlement. I went to her because I felt my original attorney wasn't really focused on my interests. Elaine took over and I immediately felt she was on my side. She was very professional, and made sure my best interests were taken into account. I have referred several friends and relatives to her. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to her.

Elaine was recommended to me by a very good friend and proved worthy of that recommendation. She is thorough in her research and gives excellent guidance throughout the legal process. We have worked together on two fronts - family property dispute and the closing of a family trust. Both issues were successful and equitable for everyone.
I was very glad to have made her acquaintance to be a recipient of her advice.
Elaine was kind enough to accept my case at the last possible minute. She came highly recommended by a good friend of mine who had gone through a particularly trying divorce. He was especially impressed with her ability to undertake a number of different tasks simultaneously and perform each accurately and with dispatch. This ability was also evident in the way she handled my case, which was ultimately decided in my favor. All of our consultations leading up to the deciding hearing were relatively brief but factual and to the point, providing me with a realistic picture of what was expected of me and the propects of success.
Elaine continues to be our family lawyer. Initially she was my wife's lawyer in 1993 for a relationship dispute. She became my lawyer in the mid 90's for the guardianship/protection of my father. This involved very complex proceedings in a disputed large trust. She was able to protect my father and his assets. Many other lawyers were involved and clearly defended what was right without question. Always prepared and very professional. She currently is our lawyer for a contract dispute
Elaine assisted me with some potentially complex estate planning issues. She was knowledgeable and did any necessary research in order to be so. She was patient in explaining my options to and guiding me through my decisions.
Elaine knows the current laws relating to domestic partnership and was able to advise me on how they could impact my case. She listened to my concerns and situation and then advocated on my behalf. She was extremely efficient and professional and accomplished in 2 weeks what my previous attorney wasn't able to accomplish in months. She outlined a work plan with an estimation of when I could expect things from her, and she followed through. Her communication was great. I always knew what was going on, and she checked in with me at all decision points. I really can't say enough about how good she was to work with!
