Ellen was an excellent attorney for what I needed. She was helpful with any and every question I had, quick to get back with me when needed. She stuck to her guns. I would retain her again in the future if needed.

Ellen is an excellent attorney. She was patient and provided a thorough overview of what I could expect during the divorce process in the beginning. Along the way, Ellen was able to look out for my best interests. She also was great at providing me with all of the scenarios so that I could make an educated decision and what was best for my situation. She was a wonderful mix knowledge, compassion and strength for me during the process. I would highly recommend using Ellen if you are in a divorce situation.

Ellen was great explaining the process to me, and what to expect for what was a routine matter. Appreciate her expedited, and professional manner. Would recommend to others dealing with family matters.
