Attorney Profile

The owner of her own law firm located in Columbia, Maryland, Ellen G. Spencer divides her practice between family law matters and criminal defense. She provides confident, caring and knowledgeable representation to clients throughout the greater Baltimore area as well as to those who live in the part of the state that borders the District of Columbia. Ms. Spencer takes pride in being available and responsive to clients who are having to endure what are often stressful and emotional experiences.

The types of criminal defense matters that Ms. Spencer has handled on behalf of her clients have ranged from serious traffic violations to driving under the influence of alcohol and other misdemeanor and felony charges. She has been able to obtain acquittals in many of her bench or jury trials, and in other cases, she has been successful in negotiating favorable plea agreements with the prosecutor. In her family law practice, Ms. Spencer provides advice and counsel to people who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to come to an accord on such divorce-related matters as property division, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. She has been admitted to practice before all Maryland state courts since 1990, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.

Ms. Spencer attended Hofstra University as an undergraduate, and she received a Bachelor of Arts in 1971. Several years later, she made the decision that she wanted to become an attorney, and she enrolled at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and was subsequently awarded her Juris Doctor in 1990. Ms. Spencer is a former president of the Howard County Chapter of the Women's Bar Association of Maryland.
