Ellen takes a systematic approach to family law, so that clients have clear guidance through one of the hardest times of their lives. She always considers which strategy will lead to the best, most realistic outcome – addressing the major concerns of finance, custody, parental rights and more. Ellen empowers her clients to set boundaries and learn new ways to interact; she even has a lending library for topics like dealing with narcissists, passive-aggressive behaviors, domestic violence, parenting, self-help, and self-awareness.

Her current focus is domestic relations and estate planning.
