Eleni is a native of Harford County and a graduate of Elon University in North Carolina, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Corporate Communications. She became a member of the Maryland Bar in 2016.

During law school, she participated as a Rule 16 with the Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office, which allowed her to prosecute criminal cases with supervision in the district and circuit courts. Additionally, she was a member of the Family Law Clinic in law school, where she worked with parents in Termination of Parental Rights cases to be reunited with their children. These experiences have allowed Eleni to take a more creative approach to handling custody and other family law disputes.

Eleni is an active member of the Maryland and National legal communities, and she has memberships in the American Bar Association, Maryland State Bar Association, Harford County Bar Association, and Women’s Bar Association.  

Eleni has also completed mediation and best interest attorney training, and she is a strong advocate for alternative dispute resolutions for divorce and child custody matters. Eleni has also been recognized as a Rising Star in Bel Air, MD for the year of 2023-2024.

When she’s not keeping us all in line, Eleni enjoys spending family time with her husband, their tiny humans, and dog in their blended family.
