Probasco Marital & Family Law


Having dedicated her entire career to assisting individuals through the family law process, Eliane (“Ellie”) Probasco has a deep understanding of the nuances and complexities of what it takes to be successful in her field. 

Ellie has practiced exclusively in the area of marital and family law in the Tampa Bay area since her admission to the Florida Bar in 2002.  She earned her J.D. from Florida State University in 2002 after receiving her B.S. in Journalism from the University of Florida in 1999.  Ellie has been involved in several legal organizations, including the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar, the Family Law Section of the Hillsborough County Bar Association, the Stann W. Givens Family Law American Inn of Court of Tampa, the Collaborative Law Section of the Hillsborough County Bar Association, the Tampa Bay Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers.  

Ellie understands that family law is unlike any other area of the law.  For most people, family law court is their first experience with the legal system. 

“My objective is to help clients understand the process and provide relief from the stress and anxiety that can come from navigating the unfamiliar legal system,” says Ellie.  “Family law cases are like snowflakes.  No two relationships are alike, so no two cases are alike.  That is why it is important to me to get to know my clients and to get to know their goals and objectives.  At the outset of the case, I meet with my client to formulate a strategy that best meets those goals and objectives.” 

In 2016, Ellie was honored to receive the Stann W. Givens Family Law Inn of Tampa’s Theodore Millison Professionalism Award.  This honor is given annually to an Inn member in recognition of exceptional professionalism in the practice of family law. 

“I try to leave my clients in a better position than when they first come to see me.  That is no easy task considering that most people leave with half of their assets and less time with their children.  But, if I can help someone through this difficult time, if I can help someone see there is life after family law litigation, I have done my job.”

Ellie’s practice includes dissolution of marriage, paternity, timesharing disputes, child support, division of assets and liabilities including business interests, real estate, and enhancement of non-marital assets, and alimony.
