Susan Jeffries was recommended to me by a friend who is also an attorney. He said she taught classes on divorce law. She actually new the law much better than my wife's attorney, and corrected his paperwork several times. She used assistants when she could to keep the cost down, and I thought she was very reasonable. We enter marriage with the greatest hopes, and are sad and frustrated when it comes to divorce. Moving past a divorce is important, and sometimes we later realize we are actually in a better situation after the divorce.
I am a professional psychologist who has had the opportunity to work with Susan Jeffries and her associates. My patients have felt very supported by her and her associates, and would recommend her highly to others. My clients have felt well supported in separation, divorce and child custody cases,
This firm is very cagey in their billing practices. I was billed for various "consultations" between Susan and the attorney she handed me off to. Many charges for all kinds of "administrative" costs too. Just running up the tab. She also talks on & on when you meet her, even when you are supposed to be working with the "junior" attorney. Again all that time gets billed.
handled my case fast and thorough
I have had occassion to use this law office during two different but equally difficult cases. Both times, they put my family first, listened to and addressed my concerns, and offered excellent and highly effective legal representation. It was a long and difficult process, with many ups and downs, but I would have no hesitation about using this firm again in a heartbeat if the need arose. Of all the attorneys I have been involved with in all of these isues, this firm is by far the best, and also the most sincere. Make no mistake - these cases are almost always difficult, emotionally draining and financially expensive - but I recieved more help and compassion from this firm than from all others combined. I recommend them highly.
As my advocate, Susan L. Jeffries was dedicated, caring and compassionate; yet focused and tenacious in her representation. Her meticulous attention to detail, and knowledge of the legal system, was quite encouraging. I am enthusiastic about her work and reassured by knowing that should the need arise I am in the best of hands.
Charged a hefty retainer and escalated the situation with the ex. When I tried to discuss the turn of events, Susan turned rude and hostile. I immediately switched attorneys and she refused to refund the balance on the retainer and sent an invoice with bogus charges to use up the retainer.
Susan is the 'rain maker'. She will bring you in, discuss the case with you and then hand it off to a junior attorney. Typical for most law firms.
She gets 1 star because I cannot go any lower!
