Informative

Client:Randy R
Attorney Hired:Ellen J. Rhodeman

She answered all of my questions very thoroughly and made me feel like it was okay to not have answers beforehand. She was also honest with me about my need for an attorney going into the initial hearing which I very much appreciated because I am on a tight budget. I would 100% recommend your law firm to everyone and will be coming to you guys if I end up needing an attorney after or during mediation.

Client:Leanne N
Attorney Hired:Ellen J. Rhodeman

I highly recommend Ellen Rhodeman with Sterling Law Offices. She was professional but sympathetic, knowledgeable but was willing to research if needed for unusual issues, was organized plus has additional staff members to assist if warranted. In this new era of Covid, she will still meet with clients in person if requested. Divorce is a difficult process for anyone to go through and a client needs to be knowledgeable and thorough communicating their own financial and personal circumstances. Ellen listened and asked questions to view a complete picture of my circumstances. She helped me navigate through this difficult time in my life with a sense of humor, empathy and a positive outlook; if you require representation contact Ellen Rhodeman!

The Right Choice

It was a long and oftentimes stressful process to get to the end of my divorce, but overall I could not be more satisfied with the result. I believe it was fair and equitable for both sides, and a large part of that is due to Sterling Law Offices and Ellen. One of the main factors in the divorce process is the attorney, and Ellen is simply great to work with. She has a wealth of experience and a down-to-earth attitude, is very easy to talk to, and was 100% focused on helping me achieve my goals_x000D_
_x000D_
She helps ensure you're as prepared as possible at each step along the divorce process, and was reachable and responsive over text, email, phone, and video, depending upon the need. I truly felt like Ellen cared about me as a client. Another important factor, and the one that initially drew me to meet with a lawyer at Sterling Law Offices, was the cost. The financial structure with Sterling Law Offices was absolutely what I needed, and Ellen was always available to guide me and answer my questions along the way without me having to worry about added costs._x000D_

She was also cognizant of helping me avoid extra fees, at one point working at all hours of the day and evening to help reach an agreement and avoid costly mediation. Don't trust just my review… Scroll through more of these reviews and you'll see similar comments. Thanks Ellen!

Highly Recommend

Ellen was very professional. She is easy to talk to. After the consult, gave the space and time to process at my own pace. Throughout the time it took, she was always reachable and responded promptly via email/text/phone. Helped me through understanding the process and options and what to expect and prepare for it. One thing about Ellen is she very compassionate and kind and understood the situation I was going thru as a father and helping me through an emotionally difficult divorce, which made a big difference to me. I highly recommend Ellen

Simply the Best

I am father of four, who couldn’t be happier with Sterling Law Offices. I have to tell you from the start, I have been where you are… putting in the time to research and find an attorney to improve my children’s and my quality of life. Naturally my second concern was cost, which I’m happy to say lead me to Sterling Law Offices. _x000D_
_x000D_
Their fixed fee option shows their level of commitment to their clients, by not nickel-and-diming you to death, even when your case is extremely involved, as mine was. Although I am confident Sterling Law Offices has a team of very capable attorneys, my research lead to me request Attorney Ellen J Rhodeman, who I felt was the best for my situation. _x000D_
_x000D_
It was without a doubt the right choice. Ellen is extremely knowledgeable with many years of experience. The combination of Ellen’s impressive ability to perform in court and the high level of respect others involved have for her, not only puts you at ease, but is also a great advantage. From day one Ellen made me feel comfortable, as she was down to Earth, easy to talk to and as dedicated to my goals as I was. _x000D_
_x000D_
Her commitment to her clients is obvious in her immediate response to any concern and her honesty to you regarding expectations. Now being at the end of an extremely successful outcome, I can say with experience, that you are in the right place. I think attorneys tend to get a bad rap, which makes it difficult to make a choice, but honest and compassionate ones do exist. _x000D_
_x000D_
Thanks Ellen for improving our lives and thank you for all the time you put in. You're a great asset to Sterling Law Offices, and anyone who chooses you to improve their lives.

Divorce is stressful, and when there are children involved, matters are even more sensitive. Attorney Ellen Rhodeman was not just my attorney, she was an advocate for my daughter and me. She was proactive, highly communicative, and emotionally supportive. Ellen worked exhaustively to overcome seemingly impossible deadlines, and helped me maintain composure throughout. I could not have chosen better representation, and I firmly believe that if I had chosen differently, I would still have a long road ahead. If you find yourself in the difficult and emotional situation of pursuing divorce, I highly recommend Attorney Rhodeman. She listens, she is thorough, she is emotionally intelligent, and 100% committed to the needs of her clients and their children.

A hard thing for couples to go through is a divorce. I contemplated this for years, when I did decide to go through with it, I needed to find a good lawyer. Like everybody I stated to look on line. After reading dozens of the lawyers bio's I found that Ellen Rhodeman seem to fit. After setting up our first meeting, I felt very relaxed talking to her knowing that there would be many personal matters I would need to talk about. Ellen listen to everything I had to say, and one of her first things she said was “What took you so long” and she was right. I have heard many horror stories for other people on how their divorce went, and wished they had gotten a different lawyer. Well that was not my case. Ellen explained every step to me up front in our first meeting she even gave me options that I was not aware even existed. Another good thing, is I knew what the price was right from the start, no matter how many calls, e-mails or meeting we had, the price stayed the same. Seem like the time went by fast, and I am now Divorced. Ellen saved me money in the long run with the maintenance, something I did not thinking could change, and only for a few years. I would recommend Ellen, to anybody that is thinking of getting a divorce, or just needs questions answered on how the process goes. I am having my brother call Ellen next week to look at his divorce papers, there seems to be questions that were not taken care of. I also know if I need a lawyer in the future I will call Ellen first, I know Sterling law office handle many different law disputes. If she does not do that kind of work I would go with the lawyer she recommends.

We can't think Ellen Rhodeman of Sterling Law enough. What started out with Sterling holding an informative class to needing to hire an attorney, she was very helpful, patient and informative every step of the way. One of the first truly helpful and compassionate law firms that I have heard of.

Client:CATHY D

Ellen Rhodeman, at Sterling Law offices (Milwaukee Location), is not the first lawyer I’ve had on the same case that has been ongoing for a very long time. She IS however the first lawyer that I have felt safe trusting the outcome of mine and my children’s future with, and the first one to put forth such skilled effort and time. She has been supportive and honest through the entire process and really fights for us. She is knowledgeable, professional and timely. She’s also got a great team at Sterling backing her at all times. I was so lucky to find her, my family was lucky to find her, and to find Sterling Law Offices

Ellen seemed real professional. I had requested a lawyer that had lengthy experience in the Waukesha courts. The receptionist told me that she was pairing me with an individual that had met that criteria. When court came I let the lawyers do their thing. I felt like I could have represented myself better.
