An Overview of My Cleveland Attorney Services

At the Law Office of Ellen S. Mandell, I bring extensive legal experience to individuals throughout Ohio. My practice focuses on ethics and professional negligence; divorce, dissolution and legal separation; and child custody, visitation, and support. I have built a successful practice based on a commitment to personal service, earning a reputation among my peers and clients as an honest and trustworthy advocate. Your needs and interests are my priority. Contact me by e-mail or call 216-771-7080 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Professional Ethics and Negligence

I work with a wide range of professionals, including health care professionals, vocational experts, lawyers, financial planners, and accountants. I provide proactive advice to avoid disciplinary problems and aggressively defend allegations of professional misconduct or negligence. I have served on the Cuyahoga County Bar Association and Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association Certified Grievance Committees for thirty years and I have represented the bar association in grievance cases before the Ohio Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court.

I have defended clients against charges of professional misconduct before licensing boards in Ohio. I have represented aspiring attorneys whose right to take the bar examination r to be admitted to practice law in Ohio has been challenged.

Divorce and Separation

I represent men and women at all stages of a divorce and with family law problems —from initial filing through post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement of existing agreements. Though I encourage all clients to find ways to amicably resolve divorce issues, and prefer to take a collaborative law approach, I will aggressively protect your interests in court when necessary.

Child Custody and Visitation

I handle all matters related to child custody and visitation, working with clients to establish and implement arrangements that are in the best interests of minor children, while at the same time protecting parental rights. Together, we consider issues involving medical, educational, and religious needs and determine the best plan for all parties involved.

Domestic Violence

I represent victims of domestic violence and those charged with committing domestic violence.


I also represent men and women in other family law matters, including guardianship and adoption proceedings.

At the Law Firm of Ellen S. Mandell, I've chosen to focus on a few select areas of practice. This approach has allowed me to become very capable at handling cases in my field that require various methods of resolution. If it turns out that your situation requires a lawyer whose specialty is outside of my purview, I can assist you with a referral. However, if you are in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, or anywhere else in northern Ohio and are seeking an attorney for representation in a family legal or professional ethics case, you've come to the right place.

To arrange a free consultation, contact me by e-mail or call 216-771-7080. My offices are located across from the Terminal Tower in downtown Cleveland, with ample parking. All meetings are by appointment and major credit cards are accepted.
