5.0 stars 4 totalReview Suzanne Latimer
On my way home to New Jersey over the Labor Day holiday, I was pulled over by a State Trooper who issued me a ticket for speeding on the Northway near Saratoga Springs, NY. I was traveling in a cell of cars in the fast lane, matching their speed, which was very closely aligned with the speed of other motorists in the adjoining lane. To me and my wife, it seemed clear that I had been singled out because I was driving a shiny new BMW with out of state plates. Nonetheless, I took it in stride. After decades of driving with a spotless record and no speeding tickets, I figured that my number had just come up. I decided that I would plead guilty, pay the fine and take the points. However, after a bit of online research the next day, I learned that the section of the Northway where I was stopped was a notorious speed trap. I also found out that motorists could fight these tickets, and that one of the best local law firms to retain was Latimer. My email to Latimer was immediately returned by phone from the principal, Suzanne Latimer, who convinced me to fight. She and her team successfully reduced my charge to a parking violation with zero points and no record - hence no insurance increase! If you get stopped for speeding in New York State, as I was, seek out Latimer. Her firm is superb.
Sue was amazing, calm, and practical. She handled many different issues in my case with calm reasoning. She's very smart and understands the law and what's practical. She cares about the children first and that's what any parent needs to consider. She really connected with me and understood that a divorce and custody battle have a very emotional and financial side. She keeps that in mind even when one may forget. Her advice is spot on. I've recommended her several times and will do it again.

I welcome this opportunity to recommend Suzanne Latimer to anyone who needs a lawyer for a child custody/visitation case. As soon as Suzanne took on my case, I began to feel optimistic that soon I would finally have the chance to be able to establish a normal father/child relationship with my two daughters despite their mothers many lies and efforts to prevent this from happening. In court, I had always been very nervous, frustrated and even scared, but Suzanne, thankfully, made my court experience a great deal less tramatic. Before each of our ten days of trial, she always showed at least an hour early and absolutely fully prepared. Suzanne's presence helped to calm and reassure me that things were going well, that they would continue to go well and that if I kept my cool I would soon be seeing my children on a regular basis and, much to my surprise and delight, that if I had a house available to properly accommodate my two daughters, I might even be able to get full legal and physical custody of them.
In court, Suzanne was a true champion of my cause. She was calm, collected, articulate, and very sharp and rapid in her cross examination of the prosecution. Thanks to her structured questioning, she was able to make it evident to the court that the prosecution was lying. In the end, this is what won the day.
Five stars and more is what Suzanne deserves for all her work and dedication. I am forever grateful to her and on behave of my two daughters, I thank her once again.

From the first consult I knew that the referal to Suzanne Latimer was right on target. She supported me through prep for court, she guided me through our first court hearing and listened and restructured the plan when I needed to change direction completely. Suzanne was professional and knowledgeable but more than that she saw the humanity in my decisions. Suzanne was a key player in healing our family when she could have pushed for a win. I recommend Suzanne whenever anyone asks me about a lawyer!
