Family Law Superstar!
Attorney Wright is an extremely talented attorney and very well known among other lawyers and court staff. I was incredibly nervous about my parenting time case and I'm so glad I had her with me. My ex husband was determined to try to take my daughter away from me after the police called DCF on me after my ex boyfriend assaulted me. The whole situation was extremely high conflict and very emotional. Long story short the outcome was a positive one and my daughter is doing well. I highly recommend Ellen and the legal team at her firm to anyone who needs help in family court.

Wonderful Person & Attorney
This is a wonderful attorney. I only had the pleasure of a consult with Ellen just the other day, but her compassion, tireless work ethic, integrity and desire to do what is right by her client truly shined through. She likes to settle her cases which the majority of attorneys do not, this makes her a rarity. Settling a case should be a priority from the very beginning because it will help you to not incur massive legal fees. Most attorneys do not try to settle their cases, especially quickly. I have been in divorce court for eight very long tireless years now, so I am aware of this. She is also a person of faith, and that intertwined with her work ethic makes her a rarity in this profession. If you truly want someone who will do what is right by you, get you to the finish line quickly, sooner versus later, not spend a massive amount of money on legal fees, which is what you want, then I highly recommend you contact Ellen.

I recommend Ellen Wright!!
I contacted Ellen Wright to get information on what to do with my divorce. She listened intently and gave feedback that was both compassionate and informative. My consultation with Ellen helped me to feel comforted and supported while making decisions to go through this tough time in my life. In just one session (free consultation), I gained so much insight on my specific situation and the correct way to go about it. I recommend Ellen Wright!!

I'm so happy!
When I hired Ellen, I had no idea what a great attorney and person she is. Not only was she very professional, she was also very compassionate too. She made going to court less stressful. I was very pleased with the outcome, and this was all because of Ellen. I'd definitely hire her again if needed!

Goes Above And Beyond For Her Clients
I can't say enough kind words about this woman. I have been dealing with numerous situations from a nightmare of a landlord for almost 2 years now. Although she was not well versed in housing cases before taking me on, she has done nothing but continuously save me from these people. She fights for you professionally while relating to you and supporting you on a personal level. I call her frequently, stressed out, with questions on how to deal with certain situations and her response is ALWAYS "don't worry, I will take care of it" and she has not ever gone back on that word. Mine and my children's lives have been in this attorneys hands on multiple occasions and I am so grateful to have her on my side! 5 stars, 10 if I could!

Kind, Compassionate And Talented
Ellen is an excellent lawyer. She was very helpful to me when I discovered that my husband was cheating on me. She spent much time consulting with me and comforting me and giving me guidance on how I should best proceed. Right now we are in marriage counseling, but if I do need a divorce I know where to go. Yeah

Brilliant, Kind, Amazing
Divorce is hard. Even when start out on the same page it doesn't always stay that way. I do not know how I would have gotten through the last two years without Ellen Wright and her team on my side. She is brilliant, level headed and kind. She has lifted me up every time I stumbled and held my hand when the road got rough. She is an amazing lawyer and outstanding human being.

Great all around attorney!
Ms. Wright is a true bulldog. While working on my divorce, she encountered several lawyers working for my spouse, and managed to obtain what we all agree was a fair settlement. It was frightening going into this, but Ellen took the time to explain it all in layman's terms, and to hold my hand when it didn't look like it was going to ever end.

Great representation.
Attorney Wright is a skilled advocate and was a God-send when I had a customer refuse to pay a bill. Although she normally doesn't handle collections cases, she was able to get the customer to pay even though the debt was over 2 years old. The letter she sent was so professionally written and well done I knew that it would only be a matter of time that the customer would pay me. I highly recommend Attorney Wright to anyone who is not willing to settle for anything less than the best!
