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.

Ellen fights your best interest. My ex husband's lawyer was a bully and she shut him down.

I interviewed several lawyers before deciding to retain Ellen. Choosing Ellen was the best decision I could have made. I was impressed with the detail and timeliness of her communication. I was always aware of what was going on with my case. She has a way of explaining the most technical legal matters in such a way that makes it easy for anyone to understand. She is compassionate and understanding with her clients, yet tough when she has to be.
Ellen, also has a great staff. Gina is very professional and friendly. She always sent email reminders of upcoming court dates and things like that. Very helpful!
My divorce was a difficult one and I had to make some tough decisions. I'm glad I had Ellen and her over 20 years of experience to help guide me through the process.

Mrs. Paynter is highly effective at what she does. She was able to settle my support case in a timely fashion. Throughout the process she was very informative and answered all my questions in a timely fashion and in a way that I could understand. She kept informing me about the progress of my case through the legal system. I am happy that I had a chance to utilize her skill set and will certainly consider working with her in the future.

Ellen was very helpful in my custody case for my children. I have hired her three separate times to file motions for disposition and complain for divorce and she has exceeded my expectations. She (and her staff) stayed in good communication and kept me updated on what was happening with my case and fought for nothing less than what I hoped to accomplish. She was very patient and understanding when it came to explaining details and answering questions as I am out of state. I highly recommend her, she has been wonderful.

I contacted Ms. Paynter in December of 2015 regarding divorce. Ms. Paynter met with my for the initial consultation at no cost. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, supportive, and understating through the entire process. Ms. Paynter always responded to me in a timely manner and was always well prepared for all of our trials. I would highly recommend Ms. Paynter to friends/family, as well as others seeking an attorney who specializes in family law.

I contacted Ellen 2 days after learning my husband had been unfaithful. Although I was still an emotional wreck, I knew I wanted to divorce; more importantly I needed to secure spousal support. A good friend of mine said Ellen was the best! She was honest, knowledgeable and compassionate all at the same time. She represented me and I got the outcome I was hoping for. Ellen is a pro!

I contacted Ellen for a consultation regarding a difficult and unclear matrimonial matter. Being a UK citizen my understanding of the US legal system was vague at best. I can only say the service I received from both Ellen and her paralegal Gina was first class. Their response was both prompt and extremely professional, taking the time to clearly explain to me the situation and clarify my options from that point. In addition this was backed up with written detail and supporting references.
I was very impressed with both the level of knowledge and the professional courteous response I received. I would certainly not hesitate to engage Ellen in any future situation and would highly recommend her services.
A first class and excellent organisation
Many Thanks Ellen
