  • Andrew Michael Korduba

    I endorse this lawyer. Susan and I were on opposing sides of a highly complex and complicated legal matter. And the parties were in "high conflict" of the disputed issues. Susan was very polite and professional in her handling of the case. She was honest and respectful when discussing and negotiating amicable resolution of the case by uncontested agreement. She worked very hard to support her client's position and wishes but also to help settle the case without contested litigation. If you are looking for a lawyer who will fight for your legal rights but also give you honest and accurate advice about your legal options and realistic consequences of those decisions, give her a call. She was a pleasure to work with/against. Until next time......
