Have you ever had a bully and had someone else just punch them in the face for you? And knock them out cold?
I am a black man who chose corporate America and was bullied out of the door by a big company. I had been treated like a second class citizen when ironically I was the most productive member in my group. The shock of the situation left me depressed, questioning myself, and overall pessimistic despite my solid career track record.
Three referrals later, I was introduced to Susan Bluer. I didn't know that my life was literally about to change. I couldn't believe how she was a combination of super smart (she talks and processes things very fast and efficient) with unbelievable knowledge and experience, and also having the heart of a proactive frontline civil rights activist. And yes, I also detected in the way that she treated and addressed me, most beautiful of all, the heart of a Mother.
Immediately upon contact the company began outrageously lying about my performance and character. The ferocity that Susan responded with was unreal. Trust me, it would make you cry because it showed her passion in being connected to the situation. They pissed her off big time, and boy did she make them pay.
She under-promised and over-delivered.
Susan is an Angel. I am extremely thankful for her.
I found Susan through the San Francisco Bar Association's lawyer referral program. I was starting a new job and was hoping to get a lawyer's perspective on my new employment contract. Susan went through my contract, explained each section to me, and then wrote modifications to the contract based on our mutually agreed upon perspective. I presented Susan's modifications to my prospective new employer's legal team and they agreed to all the changes. Thanks to Susan I now have a much stronger employment contract than I would have had otherwise. For a young professional like myself think of Susan's advice as insurance. Every dollar you invest in her insight will pay dividends in the future!
Susan is the most efficient and the most effective legal counsel hat you want on your side. She is the most honest and straightforward of all too. From the moment I met her, Susan has kept impressing me. First, she was very well prepared before our first meeting, came in with already a full grasp of my situation. She covered all my concerns in an open and honest manner. She went on to uncover my hidden concerns, fears, and hesitations and provided me with realistic expectations like a personal counsel speaking beyond legal matters. Once I retained her as my legal counsel, she was brutally fast and efficient. The resolution came within hours, and the matter was finalized amicably and professionally with all parties within days. She kept me fully informed all along. Especially impressed I was with Susan's following up to make sure the system worked as stated, agreed and expected in the resolution. It happens all the time, agreements can be violated deliberately and routinely. Susan Bluer reinstated my confidence and trust in our legal system and workers rights. I recommend her enthusiastically without any reservations.
My experience with Susan was simply amazing. Her professionalism is second to none. Upon meeting with her the first time, she clearly outlined what was possible for the scope of the settlement. She advised me on what was realistic and what it would take to get what I wanted. Within a few days we were able to move forward with our plan. Just as she described we moved forward to an excellent resolution with very low stress and expert guidance all along the way by Susan. I would recommend her 10 times out of 10.
I never needed a lawyer before, so with trepidation I called Susan, who answered the phone herself and agreed to help me, and gave me an appointment right away. She was aggressive, as her own bio says, but I thought, "this is the kind of lawyer I need!" In sum, I found her Challenging, Concise, Competent, and Comforting.
She knows employment law, answered all my questions, walked me through my concerns, and worked quickly to get the best deal for me. She advocates for her clients, and does it well. I would recommend her to anyone.
I am writing to provide my very strongest recommendation for Susan Bluer. Susan is a "powerhouse"; she doesn't spend much time trying to think of what to do because she is a "doer"- her wealth of experience and knowledge in representing and protecting her clients is intuitive. In negotiations, Susan is a force, and I say this in a most complimentary way. She has no patience with pretension and idleness - she will get the job done efficiently and at reasonable cost. She does not waste time babying clients through the process, but will educate you to give you the self-confidence and self-reliance to be successful. Susan is a good person, considerate of her clients and sensitive to their needs. If you team up with her she will undoubtedly win your case and do it very well. Susan Bluer is simply a winner.
I have immense respect for Susan Bluer. She did great work for me and really went to the nth degree in all of our dealings. I could not have been happier with the quality of her work, her deep knowledge of the material, and her ability to represent me with amazing intestinal fortitude and truly excellent results. She has an innate knack for sorting through the weeds and then educating her clients to help them help themselves. I learned so much from her! On top of all that, she sincerely cares about her clients' well-being beyond business outcomes. She is exceedingly passionate about her work; it clearly is her vocation. I recommend Susan Bluer most highly and without any hesitation.
