I am the founder of the Law Office of J. Eileen Zell —also known as EZ QDRO LAW — a boutique law practice focused exclusively on the division of retirement assets and other forms of deferred compensation in domestic relations matters. I partner directly with the collaborative team to safeguard retirement benefits, and help successfully negotiate and promote creative settlement solutions, accomplish client goals, and navigate difficult issues.

I am committed to achieving an equitable and fair division of marital retirement benefits, making it my business to bring efficiency to the collaborative process. I ensure that complex plan documents and changing laws do not yield unintended results. As author of Bloomberg Tax & Accounting Tax Management Portfolio, 379‐1st T.M., QDROs and Similar Assignments of Income/Retirement Assets, I continually examine this emerging area of law, while educating other practitioners in the field.

Most people end up in an attorney’s office in emotionally challenging circumstances. From day one, my attorney and the entire Collaborative Team were amazing to work with—professional, extremely knowledgeable, and responsive. Early recommendations on steps we should take really came in handy as the Collaborative Process proceeded.
