If your thinking about divorce or custody concerns. Read this in its entirety. Words from a male perspective. Words can't even fully describe how amazing Wanita Ellis and her team were with handling my custody and divorce case. Starting with the first day of consultation I felt extremely comfortable and reassured that they would take care of my needs. 10 years of marriage, children, and owning a business together seemed like a daunting and impossible task to negotiate. Wanita was able to close and complete my custody and divorce tactfully and aggressively with the best interest of my children and myself. There was always open communication with her and every time you talk to her you can tell in her voice, that she is truly compassionate about what she does. I had so many fears going into this chapter of my life. If I had known that this process would have been this smooth, I would have executed this much sooner. My best words to describe Wanita would be, a calm voice of reason. She saved my children and myself mentally, spiritually, and financially. As for financial cost I was shocked at how inexpensive this process was. In my mind I was expecting to be in debt above my eyeballs but she set me up to be financially secure. For you that's reading this! There is a reason your looking up lawyers in the Wilmington area. My advice is to call the office and schedule a consultation. You can scan and read all you want online and talk to friends or family but the best thing you can do is talk to the source. Don't do this alone. Its a small financial price to pay to protect your family and you. Wanita when you read this, I just want you to know how grateful I am that you were placed in my life. Thank you for fighting for us, caring, motivating, guiding, and ultimately saving my children and me. I'm truly blessed to have had you on my team. Thank you

Best experience possible
Waneta is very honest, thorough and compassionate. She has been readily available by phone, email and in person. She has made this painful process of divorce as smooth as possible. I would absolutely recommend her!

"I've known Waneta for over a decade, and I would have zero reservations in referring clients to her."

Relationship: Co-worker
"Waneta is first and foremost a tireless advocate for her clients. She cares tremendously - which is a rarity in attorneys today in my humble opinion. Immigration law and concerns has always held first place in Waneta's heart, followed closely by family law and representing criminal defendants. If she says she will do something - it gets done. Period. Trust Waneta - she will come through for you! I endorse her whole heartedly."
