Ellen currently practices in the areas of divorce, child custody, child support, and mediation. In the past, she has successfully won tricky and complicated cases for her clients. In particular, she was able to win a modification of custody of three children from their mother to the father. It was an emotional case, but she was proud to fight for a father who was so dedicated to his children. She also worked on a high-stakes child support cases. In one particular case, the father was earning over $250,000 annually, was hiding money, and deliberately not paying child support. Thanks to Ellen's tough stance in the courtroom, she was able to collect $90,000 in child support owed to the mother for her two children.
Ellen graduated from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka Kansas. During law school, she earned her Children & Family Law Certificate, worked in the Immigration and Family Law Clinics, and worked as a clerk for Cavanaugh & Lemon, PA.
Additionally, she was the student Editor-in-Chief for the ABA's Family Law Quarterly. She then moved on to work at Randall. A Wolff & Associates, Ltd, a general practice law firm in Chicago and Arlington Heights, Illinois where she was a civil litigator and specialized in Family Law.
The goal of any divorce is to make a successful transition from a hurtful and uncomfortable place towards a peaceful and exciting new chapter in life. During that transition, it is important to create realistic expectations, and Ellen's focus is on creating a workable solution that is tailored to her client's needs and families.
Ellen is compassionate and enjoys listening to her clients life stories, and when at one of the lowest points in their life, that is an important first step.
Ellen is currently married with two daughters and enjoys spending time with her family by taking her daughters to the library and swimming at Lake Michigan. When not advocating for clients, she enjoys local restaurants like Odd Duck or Comet Café, photography, playing cards, hiking, and yoga.

"I began the process of my divorce with a different law firm that someone had recommended to me. This person just so happened to be personal friends with the attorney and hadn't had business experience with them. I felt that my time and situation was not valued and that she really didn't have time for my case. When I would contact the attorney, I would have a list of questions so that I wouldn't get charged multiple times. I searched around my town for a different attorney to take my case, but many refused because of where I was in the process of the divorce. I came across SterlingLawyers.com based on the reviews I read online. The flat-rate pricing really saved me money compared to the expenses with my previous attorney. My attorney Tobias Kinsler instilled confidence and made me feel at ease. I had a positive vibe from the first day that I met him, before I had even decided to hire him as my attorney. Toby was a straight-shooter and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. He gave me the facts. I appreciate the hard work and time he dedicated to me undertaking and continuing my case when no one else would. If I ever need an attorney again I will be contacting Toby!"
