Researching attorneys and/or law firms for something as potentially contentious as divorce and child placement can seem so daunting. Whether your situation is straightforward & civil, or feels like a never-ending roller coaster, Ellen Rhodeman is the attorney you need protecting your interests. Along with her knowledge of family law, her objective situational analysis and mediation skills will be your ace in the hole as the case progresses.
Ellen is a consummate professional; simply phenomenal from start to finish. Her legal skills are exceptional, and the advice she gave for dealing with my ex was spot on every time. She is a smart, savvy, and supportive attorney who truly cares about her clients. Ellen provided insightful, reasonable and fair advice, actively listened to what was most important to me, and moved to secure those imperatives as efficiently as possible.
Contested divorces can be expensive and stressful, but Ellen is always calm, considerate and thoughtful. Every question I asked was answered; she removed the fear and emotion from difficult interactions, remaining focused on the big picture. She responds, rather than reacts, and provided consistently superior strategies that put a stop to some aggressive tactics and delays we were experiencing. I fully credit Ellen’s generation of options and management of expectations during mediation with the resolution of my divorce and placement battle. She completely understood every concern and hard stop I had when it came to compromise and concessions, and remained firm on our position by re-framing the options to preserve these essential requirements. At the same time, Ellen was fully prepared to present the case at trial if it became necessary.
The staff at Sterling Law Offices are exceptional as well. From that first tearful phone call to the final congratulatory messages, every person I interacted with was responsive, personable and empathetic.
On the scale of your choice, I’ll always give the highest possible rating to Ellen Rhodeman and Sterling Law Offices. Your future is in good hands with them on your side!
