Ellie understands that employment issues affect practically everyone, and these issues can impact every aspect of an employee’s life.

She is tireless when it comes to giving employees a voice and helping them understand and fight for their rights.

Employees seek Ellie’s guidance regarding overtime and minimum wages, meal and rest break violations, and improper wage statements. She counsels plaintiffs on rights relating to the California Private Attorneys General Act and unfair business practices. Ellie helps employees protect their rights when an employer has created a hostile work environment.

As a relentless advocate for employees in cases involving claims of harassment and discrimination, she helps workers stand up to employers of any size, assisting them with all aspects of wrongful termination claims.

Before joining Matern Law Group, Ellie worked as a law clerk at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 721.  She also served as a Certified Legal Intern at the Leon County Public Defender’s Office. Ellie has dedicated her entire career to ensuring that the rights of those most in need are vindicated.

Ellie earned dual bachelor’s degrees in political science and criminology from Florida State University. She then went on to earn her J.D. from the Florida State University College of Law. Ellie’s outstanding professional achievements representing employees in labor and employment issues have led her to be recognized on the SuperLawyers Rising Stars List in 2021 and 2022.
