Beyond the Law

Ellen is a real road warrior with a special fondness for family.  She spends her spare time making field trips across Virginia and Maryland to spend time with her parents and her two daughters, Leslie and Lianna. 

Ellen has a range of interests and is always up for a road trip or new adventure which she embraces with flexibility and enthusiasm – an approach she also applies to her professional life. 

An “Acts of Service” girl, Ellen loves to spread kindness and joy where she can. She enjoys her time volunteering, helping others and maintaining a daily gratitude ritual.  She is grateful for her Hirschler family and a professional role that is well aligned to her personal values.
