Ellie is a solicitor in the family department based in Liverpool, who joined the team at Weightmans in January 2013.

Ellie qualified in 2009 and has been practising family law exclusively since then. Ellie is equally at home with cases involving both the resolution of financial issues upon relationship breakdown and children matters. She has advised on a broad range of issues for both married and unmarried couples and adopts a sensitive yet robust approach to achieve the best outcome for her clients.

Recently, Ellie has successfully advised clients on a contested court application in respect of the choice of schooling for a child, and the dissolution of an unintentionally bigamous marriage.
