Testimonials

“Thorough, professional, knowledgeable, clear, and warm come to mind when I think of Ellen and the quality legal services she’s provided our non-profit!”

—M.L., regarding a nonprofit organization matter


“Ellen provided non-profit organization services to a significant and commercially sophisticated mutual client, a business entity that wanted to provide pro bono services related to its field. In assisting this client, she showed a depth of knowledge, a knack for finding practical and effective solutions, an enduring patience in counseling clients about an arcane area of law, and a respect for the client’s budget that I have seldom witnessed in twenty-five years of legal practice. It has been a privilege to collaborate with her on this and similar legal matters.”

—W.P., regarding a nonprofit organization matter


“Fantastic, fun to work with, and very thorough and conscientious.”

—S.A., regarding estate planning, small business advice.


Ellen’s attitude is what convinced us that she was the right person to conduct and resolve all types of matters that could arise between a Nonprofit Organization and the USA. During 2016, we discovered the lawyer we had, was not doing his job; therefore, we were fortunate to find Ellen. She goes beyond what is expected and is a natural problem solver. We are very proud to have found her. God bless her!”

I would recommend her to our friends.”

“Ellen handled all the required paperwork for our organization to apply and receive 501(c)3 status, and I cannot say enough about the efficiency and expertise she demonstrated in that lengthy and complicated process.

She has continued to function as our legal representative, and I highly recommend her to anyone.”
