About me

The Law Office of Elisse V. Woelfel combines experience, knowledge, and compassion with its practice of family law, estate planning, and personal injury. Many of my clients are working through difficult periods in their lives, and they need an advocate who understands the legal system and the complex emotions encountered when working through high-stress and very personal legal matters. I maintain a clear focus on client objectives and guide decisions that are determined by a client’s best interest rather than unchecked emotions.

With offices in Plano and Dallas, Texas I provide convenience for clients and can quickly access the courts in Collin, Dallas, and Rockwall Counties. I also offer my full range of legal services to residents of Allen, Anna, Carrollton, Celina, Fairview, Farmersville, Frisco, Garland, Lucas, McKinney, Princeton, Prosper, Richardson, Sachse, Wylie, and those residing throughout the communities of Collin County, Dallas County, and Rockwall County.

  • Pratheep Sevanthinathan

    I referred Elisse an EXTREMELY difficult case from Michigan that was an administrative and procedural nightmare. The case had an issue that stumped many attorneys on AVVO and in my local bar associations. The case required a great deal of creative thinking and persistence to be solved. The client was a family member, so I had a vested interest in seeing the matter to a favorable conclusion. THANK GOD, we found Elisse. She was creative, persistent, and diligent in getting the matter resolved. The client was ecstatic with the results. Moreover, her fees for the handling were very reasonable. Elisse is, without a doubt, a top notch attorney.
