Hire Her
I encourage anyone that is facing the toughest fight of their life, a divorce, to consider Ellen. This is one tough lady. She does not pull any punches and makes every effort to not let you get punched either. I can say that she was the best thing that happened to me during this entire gut wrenching divorce experience. She helped me keep it together when my whole world was falling apart. She fought for my rights as a father and to help me keep a fair and equitable division of the assets when the other party was completely unreasonable. She knows the law and actually CARES about what happens to YOU and your family. -Brian J.

Amazing Plays Hardball
Ellen is wonderful. She helped me understand the process and got me what I wanted. She called out the BS of the other lawyer and fought for my rights as a father. She is fair and firm and will tell you like it is. I am very glad that I had her in my corner throughout the process. I have more time with my son now and I couldn't be happier. Thanks so much Ellen!

Family Law Attorney
Ms. Schutz is an outstanding family law attorney and advisor. She worked very hard for me in fighting to make significant changes to my child support arrangement. I highly recommend Ms. Schutz to anyone needing a very persistent and aggressive attorney in what is typically a very difficult situation.

Unbridled fireball of an attorney
I just finished a custody battle that took almost three years. With Ellen’s professional guidance and support, I was able to secure what was best for my children. Without Ellen’s tireless and relentless tenacity I’m not sure I would have been able to stay the course. Ellen is a tenacious fighter who’s not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the biggest, most expensive firms in the city. I know this because my X hired one of the biggest, nastiest, and deceitful firms available. With their guidance, my X spent almost half a million dollars, while Ellen charged a fraction of that…and beat them. You’ll get brutal honesty. Ellen won’t mince words with you. She won’t tell you what you ‘want to hear’. She will inform you of where you’re dropping the ball. You’ll get a well-connected and experienced person. Ellen has been in family law for a considerable bit of time and as such has become familiar with just about all the players in the system. Having someone like Ellen to help you understand what is likely to happen, despite how legally right or wrong you are, is invaluable. In summary, if you want a seasoned and unbridled fireball of an attorney at your side, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by hiring Ellen Schutz.
