Due to depression and threatening suicide, my son ended up in a situation where he was charged with two 3rd degree felonies. Having never been in a situation like this, we didn't know what to do except that we needed a good attorney. Susanne was recommended to us, and after searching online, we knew she was the best person to represent my son. She was great! From day one, she reassured us that everything would be OK. Susanne was able to get us an outcome that was better than we had ever thought possible. Because of her expertise, my son is getting the help that he needs and is doing great! Thank you, Susanne. She's the best!!
Susanne Gustin was a great attorney. I had very serious charges filed against me and she basically saved my life and career. She obtained a Misdemeanor A plea on a 2nd degree Felony charge. Perfect outcome.
Susanne was very knowledgeable of the laws and how the system works. She seemed very well connected and had a good relationship with the prosecutor and judge - which is vital.
Almost as important was the way she handled me personally as that period in my life was extremely terrifying. She was always there to help make me feel better, she is extremely understanding and I felt like she cared about me.
Susanne Gustin is highly recommended.
There is much to be said about Susanne Gustin, however I will try to keep my review concise.
Susanne's handling of my case was done so with unrivaled professionalism and my best interest always in mind. She helped me better understand the intricacies of the courtroom, and exactly what would happen next throughout the entire trial process. She always kept my mind at ease and answered all my questions honestly and thoroughly, even if they were not the answers I wanted to hear.
When I did not understand what was going on, Susanne seemed to instinctively turn to me and explain the situation, breaking through the legal jargon that can sometimes befuddle the layperson.
She was not afraid to ask hard questions or give her professional opinion when necessary, but was consistent in her professional manner and tone.
Occasionally, during court proceedings and especially at my trial, I watched the State's attorneys "showboat" in an attempt to excite the jury and create an overinflated picture of their libretto. Susanne never resorted to this or other sensationalistic tactics; her strength as a formidable attorney enough to make her solid arguments resonate. Her questions to witnesses both on direct as well as cross examination were always relevant.
She collaborated with colleagues to ensure she was looking at my case from all angles. Not once was there ever a sign of an inflated ego, unlike many attorneys I have come to know. Every word spoken by Susanne was, and is, genuine.
The amount of research done and time spent building my case is unfathomable to me. My gratitude for her, and all others who worked on my case, is without measure.
If anyone should have a question about retaining Susanne Gustin as their attorney, I offer them this piece of advice; No case is guaranteed to win or lose in court, however having Susanne as your legal counsel is an opportunity I highly advise you not let pass you by.
Thank you Susanne for taking my case and helping me out in a time of need. You were very helpful and I appreciate everything you did for me. Not only did you handle it for me but you gave me some pretty decent advice as well. I'm glad I had you in my corner to defend me.
Susanne is an excellent attorney. Her knowledge of the "system" has been developed over years of diligent work for her clients. She is supportive and understanding of the stress a legal matter causes. At times when I was overwhelmed by the possibilities of my predicament she was always available with a reassuring presence. She is responsive and supportive, even in the face of extreme consequences. Her relationship to the legal community is invaluable in navigating through your case. She responds to all inquiries, even at odd hours. She protected me from the full force of the legal system and has helped me get my life back on track. I highly recommend her and will seek her assistance in the future without hesitation.
