My wife and I came to Susan (whom we met in our local chamber of commerce) to arrange our will. We were also advised to form a living trust that would protect our own interests. Her actions were very competent, quick and efficient. A fair amount of time was spend just to educate us about the pros and cons of estate planning. In the end, we are very satisfied and would recommend Susan Friedland for probate or estate planning needs.
We ran into all sorts of problems dealing with the property partition of our uncle who passed away. There were too many contenders and too much dirt, to be honest. We desperately needed a quality legal representation, as court was the last resort to settle the dispute. Susan was recommended by the lawyer whom I had dealt with in the past. I am still very grateful for this referral. Indeed, she acted in a very caring and professional manner. Inside the courtroom though she was as hard as a rock. Susan saved as a fortune. Thanks a lot.
Susan is definitely an attorney I'd love to recommend. We were in the process of forming our family trust for estate planning purposes, but apparently we did everything wrong. I specifically chose Susan for her solid reputation and experience, as this is an area of practice to avoid costly mistakes. Susan was helpful and communicable all over the way and provided a ton of advice outside the retainer agreement. I think she cares more about the client than about her paycheck. Eventually, we had a rock solid estate plan drafted and diligently executed.
Susan is one very experienced, trustworthy, and caring estate attorney which is what you would expect in this situation. She was very gentle but the actions were prompt and straightforward. Unfortunately, there was an error in the will that resulted in a dispute and court race. With Susan on our side, our family was able to stand the legal fight and get what we were eligible for. Many thanks!
