Rose Ellen is confident that you will leave this meeting with a great deal of knowledge, a sense that you understand the legal process and what you should expect from any attorney with whom you ultimately work.

Some clients who come to MLO seeking assistance with a specific legal matter such as Adoption, Premarital Planning, Divorce, Divorce Planning, Modification of Alimony, Contempt of Child Support Order, Living Together Contracts, Starting a Small Business or filing or defending a Lawsuit, or Buying a Second Home.
