For my child support case, Jillian was easy to work with and helped walk me through each step of the process. As someone who likes to be provided all options, pros/cons, and the ability to make decisions, Jillian was perfect. She made it clear through her words and actions that she would be an advocate for my needs in the case.

If you are expecting victory.... Jillian is the one to get the job done. She was resilient, assertive, attentive, resourceful, and informative. Not mention she is a BEAST in the courtroom! I am extremely ecstatic with the outcome of my case. Thanks Jillian!!!

The end of a relationship can, in itself, be a difficult process. Once you add children to the mix, an already difficult situation can become seemingly insurmountable. A subpoena for child support and custody of your child only serves to make matters worse and is a letter you never want to see. The motion was filed in a small county several hours away with limited options for counsel. There was only one board certified attorney within the local area and they had already been secured as opposing council. After countless hours of research on every lawyer site imaginable and a number of useless consultations, I arrived at Ellis Family Law and Ms. Jillian Mack. I initially had my consultation with Mr. Ellis and was then referred to Ms. Mack. Ms. Mack was extremely knowledgeable and immediately put me at ease regarding my pending litigation. Ms. Mack was more than accommodating and did everything she could to limit my expenses and ensure my dollars stretched as far as possible. Her communication throughout the process was unparalleled and she made every effort to serve as both my attorney and confidant as we navigated this difficult process. She was tenacious in the courtroom and clearly prepared for anything the opposing counsel had to offer. She quickly acclimated herself to the culture of the small county court and made sure to present herself accordingly based on her audience; which should be noted was a sharp contrast to the courtrooms of the larger metropolitan area Ms. Mack typically supports. She truly demonstrated her versatility and proved she can be successful and effective in any setting. Ms. Mack was able to negotiate a more than favorable outcome for me and ensured I was not only able to retain my rights as a parent, but also see my child as much as possible. She was even gracious enough to provide me with a plan moving forward so that I am postured to again receive a favorable outcome should I be faced with any future litigation regarding my current parenting agreement. I could not sing Ms. Mack’s praises enough for all that she has done for me and my child. Ms. Mack truly treated me as more than a client and I am more than grateful to have had her as my attorney.

I have worked with Jillian as opposing counsel on cases. She is a fantastic attorney. She is knowledgeable and prepared. She is aggressive, while also looking for solutions for her clients without the expense of unnecessary litigation. She is well-respected in the legal community. I have had judges sing Jillian's praises when she wasn't even involved in the case at hand. Anyone represented by Jillian will be in exceptionally good hands.

It's rare to find an attorney any judge would describe as a "rising star" in his or her field, but that's what you have in Jillian Mack. I have seen her prepare first-hand to go into court and battle for her clients' rights, watched the results of that preparation (and the glowing praise from the bench for her advocacy), and had the good fortune to work with her on several cases myself. She has grown into a top-notch litigator in the family law arena -- and will only get better from here. If you find yourself needing a separation or divorce, or potentially losing custody of your children, Jillian is exactly the type of attorney you want fighting for you.
