I previously worked for Susan's law firm and I have served with her on the board of the Memphis Collaborative Alliance. Besides being a very compassionate and professional attorney, her skills are top notch. She is specially trained in collaborative law as well as mediation. Her knowledge of litigation as well as alternative dispute resolution methods make her an excellent choice for representation, no matter what your needs.
