Custody battles are every parent’s nightmare, and this was my first time having to take our custody issue to court for my 5 yr. old son. The emotional roller coaster was beyond nerve-wracking. I was newly married and my husband was relocating out of the country. I refused to leave without my son. I met with many different lawyers before Ellen, and they were not very supportive or confident. Once I met Ellen, I knew instantly that I needed her on my side. She put so many of my worries at ease throughout the whole process, while continuing to stay honest. She always kept my wishes her top priority, while always reminding me that we have to do what is best for my son. Ellen always answered my emails and phone calls in a timely manner and she bills fairly for her services.
Linda, who works in her office, is extremely knowledgeable, and was able to answer most of my basic questions. When court days came up, our file was always well prepared and ready to be presented. Ellen was wonderful in court and she knew her stuff. Needless to say, I was able to relocate with my son and that would not have been possible without the help of Ellen and her assistant. They are very professional and they have the knowledge and experience to get the job done. They truly made the hardest experience in life one that was manageable! If you need a family lawyer, she is whom you want on your side!! M. F., Incirlik, Turkey
A few years ago I had the need for legal representation in a divorce case. Knowing that divorce would be a difficult process, I took my time and sought out an attorney who I felt would work the best for me and one that I would feel comfortable dealing with too. Numerous attorneys in the area were suggested, but I did my research and it paid off tremendously. Atty. Kingsley was a true professional every step of the way and completely committed to my case. Her knowledge of Divorce Law allowed her to navigate my case through the legal system in a very expedient manner. I know that I was expertly shepherded through the process, which was invaluable. Atty. Kingsley and her Practice Manager, Linda, were extremely helpful, courteous, and patient, always going the extra mile to communicate with me about the issues at hand, answering all of my inquires promptly and clearly. I had the highest level of trust during this very personal and confidential process and that greatly increased my overall comfort level, which was priceless. I have full respect and admiration for Atty. Kingsley’s honesty, integrity, and professionalism, keeping her clients and their interests fully in mind. I have seen that she is guided not only by excellent ethics, but strong values as well, qualities that seem too rare in the legal profession today. The journey we traveled together came to closure with an excellent outcome and I am 100% confident that Atty. Kingsley was the best choice I could have made to represent me in my case. I will be forever grateful for the way she handled this very important, sensitive, and difficult issue for me. I wholeheartedly recommend Atty. Kingsley to any person who wants the best Divorce/Family Law representation in the region. An additional bonus is that her office is across the street from the Northampton Co. Courthouse! C.

Ellen has been my attorney for over seven years. Unfortunately, I have a very emotionally trying, stressful case. During this time, I’ve had to share very personal information with Attorney Kingsley, and she’s afforded me the comfort and understanding to do so. As any parent can imagine, a custody situation can seem overwhelming and frightening, but Ellen has always managed to put my fears to rest. I take great comfort in the peace of mind I get, knowing that I have a well respected, ethically and morally sound attorney. She has never once faltered while facing the many challenges that arise in my case. We’ve been in and out of the courtroom countless times and I am continually in awe of her expertise and professionalism. I would never entrust the well being of my children to anyone else. T.J.

I met Ellen several years ago on recommendation from my partner. I was going through a very difficult period of my life having filed for divorce and legal custody of my children. Ellen agreed to take on my case and represent my best interests and me. She treated me with respect and honor and was honest and creative. She spent quality time with me, answered all of my questions and kept me informed at all times. A true professional and an expert in her field and…I am happy to call her a friend as well! Be sure that I will continue to utilize Ellen Kingsley for all of my personal legal needs in the future! T. Leshko, North Whitehall, PA
I limit my practice to family law, divorce & custody mediation, and animal law. I understand that substantial changes in family structure can be stressful & emotionally exhausting, so your experience with an attorney should not be. With my low-volume practice, I can be completely dedicated to your case & give it the personalized attention it deserves.
I believe that candid, confidential communication is paramount. It is important for your lawyer to know you, as well as your situation, so that he or she may best assess your options & help you make the best possible decisions. I strive to educate my clients about the processes they will face. I keep them informed of important developments in their cases.
