Mary Ellen Leslie & Assoc., LLC

Mary-Ellen Leslie, Columbus Elder Law Attorney

Mary Ellen Leslie is an attorney who is licensed to practice in the State of Ohio. Her practice is devoted to family law, which includes elder law, adoptions, estate planning, wills and trusts, probate custody and visitation matters and social security disability.

Although her office is located in the Columbus area, she continues to be available for consultations in the Akron area and surrounding counties.

Mary Ellen is uniquely qualified to assist you with multigenerational family issues. She was a stay-at-home mom until the youngest of her five children graduated from college. She then joined the work force as a paralegal, while continuing the long delayed pursuit of a college degree. Upon graduation, she was accepted into law school, and attended school in the evenings, while continuing to work full time. During her last year of law school, she also studied for, and obtained, a graduate certificate in gerontology. She passed the Ohio bar and was admitted to practice in 2001.

As a Columbus area elder law lawyer, Mary Ellen understands the problems and concerns of her clients because she has dealt with many of those same issues. She has been a military wife, living far from her parents, and having to step into the role of single parent, during her husband's absences. She survived her children's "terrible twos" and "turbulent teens" and is incredibly proud of her now grown children, three of whom are lawyers, one a banker, and one the owner of a small family business. She knows firsthand how hard it is to care for an aged loved one, while working and going to school. She understands the pain of divorce and the loneliness of widowhood.

It is because of Mary Ellen's life experiences that she knew how she would use her law degree - as a Columbus Area elder law attorney and a solo practitioner working with families. As she tells people, "I've finally figured out what I want to do when I grow up."
