Elsie has practised family law since her call to the bar in 2020.
Prior to joining Nelligan Law, Elsie practiced at a well-respected litigation firm in downtown Ottawa and articled at a full-service regional firm in Kingston.
Elsie’s practice is committed to helping clients navigate a wide variety of family law issues, whether through the court system or alternative dispute resolution options. Elsie is approachable, compassionate, and works tirelessly to ensure that her client’s achieve the most effective outcome. Her practice includes assisting with parenting issues, child and spousal support, property division and equitable relief, as well as the preparation of domestic contracts.
Elsie obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of New Brunswick. As a law student, she volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada, the New Brunswick Access to Justice Coalition, the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic, and the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund.
Born and raised in downtown Ottawa, Elsie is an active member of the Byward Market business community, currently sitting on the Board of Management for the Byward Market Business Improvement Area (BIA).
Outside of legal practice, Elsie is an avid traveller and enjoys spending her free time with friends and family.
