Susan Elgin represented me in a lengthy divorce case. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of the law, including nuances of which opposing counsel was clueless, with her attention to my circumstances, and with her professional demeanor, which was both efficient and caring. The efficiency meant that she never "ran up" the bill, and the caring meant that when I called or emailed with concerns she answered quickly and the answers were always correct.
Susan's knowledge of the law saved me many, many thousands of dollars and her personal concern helped guide me through a very difficult life passage. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.
I can't tell you how happy I was to have Susan as my attorney. Her first priority was for the well being of my two children. She made me realize that I had a responsibility to them first and it really made all the difference. She was fair and I felt like I had a warrior with me in court!! I have lots of experience with lawyers in my business, but this is the first one that I really felt was looking out for me. I would recommend her but I hope not to need her services again. :-)
Horrible! She's arrogant and ill-prepared for court.
She finds ways to increase billable hours and charges 4,000 for one day of court! Most of the work is done by her subpar underling. I would have saved myself tens of thousands had I known this before I hired her.
