Ellen Fischer is a caring, capable family law attorney representing clients in the general and the LGBTQ communities for  25 years.  Ellen is proud to help her family law clients through a philosophy of amicable settlement and collaboration.  
Working with families and adults in a major life transition requires the kind of optimism Ellen brings to her cases.   All of her life experiences come together to form her philosophy in her practice. She believes alternatives to litigation such as collaboration and mediation are important issues facing family court today. It is in the best interest of the children and, ultimately, the parents, to work collaboratively no matter how difficult and unusual the circumstances. 
Family issues today have become complex. Custodial issues can involve not only traditional two-parent households, but also  tri-parent families, transgender and same-sex families.  As a member of the Family Law Institute of the National LGBT Bar Association, Ellen is particularly knowledgeable and compassionate in working with non-traditional families. 
Whether in a traditional or alternative family dissolution,  for Ellen, the work is to convince  parents that if they are focused on the best interest of their children, financial and custodial issues are likely to fall in place.  This is the reason Ellen has a strong interest and experience in collaborative practice. 
Ellen has actively served in a  leadership capacity in key legal and community organizations, and is a member of key legal associations.  In addition, she has taught and written for legal publications and legal organizations.  Ellen has served as Chair of the Family Law Section of the Montgomery Bar Association and is a current member of the Collaborative Law Committees of the Pennsylvania, Montgomery and Bucks County Bar Associations.
