Hired her to handle divorce because she stated she was highly responsive and understood from a first-person perspective how emotionally difficult going through a divorce could be. Was not knowledgeable about issues related to custody. Was completely unresponsive to client needs for timely communication. Had to remind her often about the specifics of my case and to send information when needed. Fairly certain that she charged work performed by assistant at her rate. Save your money and hire someone else.
All other lawyers I went to told me my case was a lost cause. I was refered to Susan from a friend. Sue assured me to trust in her to get me thru this and I'm so glad I did. I wouldn't recommend anyone other than her.
I went to susan with a legal case i needed cousaling on, A little nervous on the possible end result. She listened intevively and asked questions to be clear on things, She told me she would get the police report and talk to the people invovled,which she did within 2 or three days.Susan then sent me paperwork to let me know when the case was and where. I think she sent the paperwork the same day because i received the paperwork fast. When she could not reach me by phone she emailed me to keep me abreast of the situation. We talked about the payment arrangements and worked out and agreement that would work for both of us. I feel like her price was fair and her service was excellent. She is my new family lawyer. She also didn't sugar coat my situation she was honest but realistic, and thats what i needed to navigate the court system. Superb.
Although Mrs. Perkins may know law, I feel she's unethical, petty, and tries to intimidate people. I have watched how she treats opposing clients and is completely unprofessional. Although she does do what her clients tell her to, she doesn't seem to have the ability to look at the bigger picture. Like trying to get 2 people to work together or the children involved.
She speaks of how IMPORTANT it is in GLBT communities to have someone that understands a same sex marriage in cases of divorce yet she handles child custody cases but has no children and doesn't look at whats in their interest just what the parent wants.
Based on what Ive seen in the court room and on social media I think she needs to mature, put her feelings aside and act like an adult when shes working with people she clearly does not like.
Upon my initial meeting with Attorney Perkins, she immediately calmed my fears while giving me knowledgeable, sound and consistent legal advice. She was empathetic to my family law situation, listened to everything I had to say and provided me with a direction, a purpose and a goal. Throughout my case, her wonderful paralegal kept me informed with each and every detail and I knew exactly where my case (as well as myself) stood at any given moment. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family members. She turned a would-be bad situation into a good one for all involved.
I hired Susan for my divorce. She was great, answering all my calls, texts and emails very quickly. She always returns my calls and sends me all documents coming into or going out of the office in my case. She also is very compassionate and genuine...she is real. I recommend her to anyone going through a divorce.
