Susan Yellen was and continues to be a great lawyer. I have been her client for over three years. She is extremely knowledgable and very sharp. She does her research. My case was and continues to be difficult. She is empathetic to all issues yet extremely tough when she has to be, especially in the court room. If she felt my thoughts/requests will not fly she let's me know by way of explanations in a kindly manner. She got me the settlement I wanted and continues to work hard on my behalf. Always responsive to my needs. I would not have survived this nasty mess if not for her guidance and hard work. I highly recommend her.
To charge more she wastes time with unnecessary paperwork, she is not a good negotiator. I would not waste my time or money.
Susan Yellen was always up front, didn't over bill and was responsive to my needs as a client professionally as well as what was best for my children and situation
Susan is a true professional with superior knowledge of matrimonial and family law in New York State. She provided expert guidance and advice, and also explained all aspects of the process so that my decisions were well informed and, what ultimately proved to be, correct choices.
She was patient with me, and when necessary, knew when to be aggressive with her adversary.
