Personal

Elissa works very hard to create a balance between her commitments to her law practice, as a full-service bankruptcy attorney, trustee and litigator, and to her husband, Jeff, and their daughter, Mara. She also factors in her commitment to the community, as an active volunteer in programs benefiting women without access to healthcare and at-risk youth. Working women can certainly relate; it takes incredible organization, a sense of humor and much skill. Elissa possesses these traits, and is an outstanding cook as well as an outstanding attorney.
