Purchasing a home or starting a new business are two of the biggest investments an individual can make. Ellen’s goal is to make those processes as stress free as possible for her clients.
Since beginning her practice in 2015, Ellen has closed over 2500 real estate transactions. With each residential real estate closing, she works closely with clients, real estate agents, builders, and surveyors to ensure that property is conveyed free and clear of any encumbrances at closing. She conducts title searches, procures all the documents necessary from lenders, obtains title insurance, and record deeds and other necessary documents. With an average of over 450 transactions annually, she knows that while the process for each closing may be similar, no two transactions are the same.
The same is true when incorporating your small business. Each client has a vision for their company and Ellen is there to assist with the legal steps necessary: to choose a type of business entity that suits your needs, incorporate, and make that dream a reality. Whether a partnership, Limited Liability Company, or Corporation Ellen is there to help.
As a Denver Native and North Lincoln High graduate, Ellen finds it rewarding to assist her neighbors and see her community grow. In her free time Ellen enjoys spending time on Lake Norman, is an avid reader, and enjoys hiking in the NC Mountains. She also tries to make as many Davidson College basketball games (go ‘Cats!) and Carolina Panthers games as possible.
Ellen is an active member of the Denver and Lake Norman communities. She currently serves as President of the Denver/Lake Norman Rotary Club. Previously she served as the Rotary Club’s Public Image Chair (2018-2021) and on the Club’s Denver Days Board (2018-2021). She also serves as the President of the Lake Norman Young Alumni Chapter for Davidson College (2019- Present). Ellen has been a member of the North Carolina Bar and Lincoln County Bar since 2015 and previously served as Vice President of the Lincoln County Bar (2016 – 2017).
Ellen received her undergraduate degree in English Literature from Davidson College (B.A. 2012) and her law degree (J.D. 2015) from Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg Florida. While in law school Ellen was an active member of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers at Stetson (FAWLS) and served as Chapter President. Ellen was also awarded Stetson University’s William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award.
