“I know firsthand that starting over is not easy, and that the road that lies ahead may be one of the most challenging roads to navigate, but I believe in the possibilities that a clean slate offers and I am passionate about helping others take their first step towards creating the new beginning they deserve.”

Meet Skyler Ellis

My life has not been shaped by family law necessarily, but I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t taken a leap of faith seven years ago when I moved to Washington, D.C. Fresh out of college, I didn’t have a job or a place to live and I didn’t know a single person in the D.C. area. It was up to me to build a life that I loved. Shortly before I made the move, a friend gave me some advice that I will never forget, “The first year is going to be really, really hard, but then it will get better.” It wasn’t what I wanted to hear – I was excited and had a lot of (unrealistic) ideas about the rainbows and butterflies that awaited me as soon as I stepped foot off the plane, but the reality was a little different than I imagined. When my friend’s prediction came true and things got really, really hard and I was tempted to give up and go home, their wisdom helped me through it because they reminded me that what I was building was worth the struggle and that I wouldn’t feel that way forever. Several years later, I have a life I’m truly proud of. I have a great community of friends who are closer to family, a warm place to call home, a strong and loving partner, and two silly, mischievous dogs to share my life with.

I know firsthand that starting over is not easy, and that the road that lies ahead may be one of the most challenging roads to navigate, but I believe in the possibilities that a clean slate offers and I am passionate about helping others take their first step towards creating the new beginning they deserve.

I started my career at a small international trade law firm, and after a brief detour at a consulting company, I found myself pulled back to the legal industry. Prior to joining Z Family Law, I spent four years as a Business Development Coordinator for a large corporate law firm. I learned a lot but when my friend, Z Family Law’s wonderful Intake Specialist, sent me a job listing at the firm, I jumped at the chance to do something more meaningful. At Z Family Law, I focus on helping the team connect with people who are ready for a fresh start by coordinating the firm’s marketing efforts. I love working for a firm that truly believes in the beauty of its clients’ futures!

When I’m not at work, I enjoy cultivating my plant collection, trying new recipes, reading thriller novels, hanging out with my pups, Rory and Bear, and volunteering with a local animal rescue because dogs deserve new beginnings too!
