Knowledgeable and forceful, never stopped fighing
I retained Elena for a divorce with custody and alimony issues. It was a very difficult divorce and my ex and I did not see eye to eye on anything. Elena was very knowledgeable about the law and never backed down on issues that were important to me. She responded to my emails almost immediately and was available to speak to me on the phone when I needed, even giving me her cell phone number.

Great lawyer!
Elena represented me after my divorce when my ex-husband filed to get custody of our children. She was excellent, straight forward, always responded to emails and calls. I was really happy with her and the outcome.

Great Lawyer, Highly Recommend
I hired Attorney Elena Weitz to help me with my divorce agreement. My ex-wife was not following our agreement and never did. I finally had enough and knew I had to go back to court or she would never follow it. I consulted with a few attorneys because there are so many I just didn’t know who I should choose. I met with Attorney Elena Weitz and she made me feel comfortable and like there was something I could actually do. I felt hopeful for the first time. That alone was worth it because I really had been getting down about my situation. Attorney Elena Weitz filed a great filing with the court that really set out how I felt and what was going on. We went to court and the outcome was more than I hoped. I am once again hopeful about the future.

Knew a lot about the law and was honest and straighforward
I consulted with Elena about filing a motion after my divorce. The advice she gave me was good and she explained the law and how it affects my situation. We discussed a legal strategy and I will be retaining her in the future. Im very thankful for the great advice she gave me.

I wouldn’t go to anyone else
Ms. Weitz was a very good attorney. She took the time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions, and I didn’t understand a lot before talking to her. She was excellent in court and in the motions she wrote. I would not go to anyone else if I need to go to court again. I would recommend her to anyone.
