I am completely dumbfounded that all of these reviews referring to this woman as personable and caring are up here. Susan was dismissive, condescending, and made it very clear how valuable her time was... and that mine was not. She took a ton of money and then spent so long getting paperwork filed that far more damage had been done by my separated husband. And the reason for this? She did not make sure to get her work caught up prior to going on her two week vacation. The next time I saw her, she was so tan that her wedding rings had burned her skin from the heat. Yet my paperwork sat without being submitted to the court. Her bill continued to rise although she did not attend the final two court dates (yet her bill said that she did).
I needed help in a life or death situation with my daughter that was seriously ill. Ms. Widenbaum immediately helped. She not only shared in answering every question but extended herself way beyond a lawyer's required work. I would recommend her to anyone. She helped to save our daughter's life. We can never thank her enough. She is professional in every aspect and yet puts heart behind her work.
I am very pleased with the professional services I received from Mrs. Widenbaum and her legal staff. She handled my bankruptcy with compassion and understanding. She kept me informed of all matters involving my case, and took the time to explain and answer any questions. I look forward to contacting Mrs. Widembaum for other legal matters in the future.
She told us step by step what we needed to do and what was going to happen. She helped us thru some hard time, gave great addvise and now were on the wright track again. You cant go wrong with Susan, she is the best at what she does!
I was very concerned about a financial dealing whereby I was owed a sum of money. Due to Mrs. Widenbaums Intelligent and caring approach I was able to resolve this issue. She has also helped me successfully, several times in the past. She was honest, and helpful, and understanding. I would refer her again to anyone. She's Great!
Ms. Widenbaum recently helped me with a traffic offense and I've consulted with her on many other matters. She was extremely efficient, professional, caring, knowledgeable, trustworthy, understanding and compassionate. She kept me informed about my case and explained things to me in a way that I could understand what was going on. She is very personable and seemed to know most people we came in contact with at the Courthouse. She is a diligent negotiator and very hard working. I'm glad she represented me and I don't think anyone could have done a better job then Ms. Widenbaum. I thank her for everything and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.
If you want a lawyer to take you money and give you nothing in return, then this is the lawyer for you. I recently retained her and she made the my life a living hell. Whenever I called to discuss my case with her, she would not listen to me and she would always remind me that it cost $250 per hr when I talked to her. She wanted to run my case with no input from me. When I asserted myself and told her what she needed to do, she claim she wasn't comfortable representing me and decided to drop me. This lawyer is no good. Don't waste your time and money. Now I am put in the position of having find another lawyer and spend more money I don't have. I am planning to report her to the Michigan Bar Association. If she did this to me, she has either done this to other people and she will probably do it to you.
Susan Widenbaum is the best lawyer that has ever represented me. She is the most efficient, responsive and trustworthy lawyer and provides the best services to all of her clients. And she also kept me informed of everything I needed to do and what to expect with everything regarding my bankruptcy case. I am VERY impressed with her services and I would definitely recommend her to everyone for any type of legal matters. I would definitely consider Ms. Susan Widenbaum as one of the BEST lawyers in the state of Michigan.
Ms. Widenbaum was professional and personable. She was honest and aggressive in her representation of my concern, and left no doubt that she was the right one for the job. Completely thorough! How do you spell MUWAA!! In the King's English! She is a class act! Her level headedness and fairness in a sometimes be-moaned profession (the law) is further proof that there are sometimes silver linings behind even the darkest clouds.
Always professional while yet personable, Atty. Widenbaum's knowledge of the law, while remaining completely honest in all aspects regarding the matter at hand, actually helped me to settle down and leave the matter to her.
She is completely thorough and relentless in her work. It was refreshing to see someone work that hard on my behalf. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Atty. Widenbaum is a class act!
