Amazing
Ellen is an amazing attorney. She was professional and personable and helped to humanize an extremely difficult process. She took all of the guess work kit of my hands and handled the process for me. I can’t thank her enough.

A custody attorney recommendation
Ms. Ross was a God send for me. I had so many questions and concerns as I was in unknown territory regarding the custody arrangements for my daughter. Ms. Ross is compassionate, empathetic, responsive with phone calls and emails and knew my case from beginning to end. What impressed me the most was that she wasn't "all about the money". In fact, she helped guide me in making good decisions that saved both money and time. I could not be happier with the service she provided and results she delivered. She's an amazing attorney. I'd recommend her to family and friends without hesitation.

Great to work with
Ellen was very clear and easy to work with for my child's custody case. I really appreciated her straightforward manner and clarity when I had questions. She is very knowledgeable and replied quickly to me. She made this process as easy as I can imagine it could be. I appreciated her passion and advice.

Highly Recommend
Ellen was exactly what I needed in the exact moment I needed it, and I didn't even realize it at the time. She was brutally honest with me about my approaches, which were completely accurate. Her actions and advise were quick, precise, ethical, aggressive, and result oriented. I have referred her to many and will use her in the future again, if the need arises.

Legal Guardianship
Ellen is the consummate professional! Her knowledge and expertise....and more notably, willingness to go the extra step, in terms of follow up, made the process of pursuing Legal Guardianship of my special needs son, completely stress free. In fact, I'm hiring Ellen for the next item on my to-do list. I need a Will.

Ellen Ross
Ellen was straightforward, honest, helpful, and really fun to deal with (even in a very stressful situation). She had good advise and was not offended when I chose not to take all of it, which made the process less stressful than it could have been. She explained my options completely and fulfilled everything she said she would do. I would definitely recommend her to any friend who was in need of a divorce lawyer.

Post Decree Matters
I hired Ellen Ross to help me with some post decree matters years after my divorce had taken place. Unfortunately, one filing/issue after another came our way. Ellen was there to navigate throughout every step of the process. She was very timely about responding to myself and communicating with opposing counsel. Ellen has both helped negotiate out of court on my behalf and has represented me in court as well. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and be assertive when needed. I would recommend Ellen!

An Honest-To-God Lifesaver
Ellen does things differently. Her fee structure (at the time I engaged her) was a flat-rate, which made it easy for me to know what I was getting into. My situation was amicable, and yet divorce does things to people. My retirement plan was at risk, and Ellen is the sole reason I got to keep it without any compromise beyond what felt fair to me. You need an advocate who understands the psychology of other attorneys, who has experience in navigating complicated terrain, and who will bare her teeth when necessary. She has strong social skills and is highly personable, which isn't common with divorce attorneys (disillusionment can mess with your head, I guess). She knows how to make light of things to remove worry, but can also flip to a more serious mode when it's appropriate (and necessary). I found it incredibly easy to communicate with her in person, over the phone, and through email. That trifecta is essential, as sometimes you have a pleasant meeting an attorney – only to then feel like you're speaking to someone entirely different over email. The moment I realized I made the right choice in hiring her came during mediation (which is mandated in certain areas when you file for divorce). We made a more-than-reasonable offer, which was met with a ridiculous counter that only got more ridiculous. Ellen jumped in, set new ground rules for how the negotiations went, and I walked away with everything that I wanted. Had I been a more malicious person, there's no telling what deal we could have struck. I'm just thankful this part of my life has passed, and I'm appreciative that I had excellent legal counsel during such a tumultuous period. She was referred to me by another respected attorney, and so I'd like to pass along the referral by saying that I would unequivocally recommend Ellen Ross.

Custody case
I had a custody case that lasted a very long time. When Ellen took over my case she wrapped it up very fast. She was very professional and got straight to the point. She gave me very good advice on how to handle everything. I would definitely use her again if I had another case. Best attorney I have had!

Ellen to the Rescue
Ellen helped me resurrect my divorce proceedings from being underrepresented by a previous law firm. She found dubious oversights and rearranged my stance with opposing counsel. Always responded in a timely manner to any questions or issues.

Ellen is the best attorney that I have ever had.
