  • Rachel Anne Sabo

    Eleana is one of the most professional and caring attorneys I know. I would not hesitate to refer my closest friend or family member to Eleana and her firm because I know she will pay attention to the small details of their case and will aggressively fight for them. Her attention to detail is one of her best qualities, along with her calm and matter-of-fact demeanor. She is a fabulous attorney, mentor and friend. You can trust Eleana with your legal matter- there is nobody better.
