Responsive - NO - it took WEEKS, WEEKS to even get a call returned from her, then when she did return the call to see what was needed it took WEEKS to get her to call back. She works part time - this chick was always on vacation. Knowledgeable: NOPE... she messed up on so many things - LEGAL things - she filed incorrect paperwork, she didn't follow through with things. Kept me informed... not a chance, I saw her twice heck she even "forgot" to bill me for months. She is a complete incompetent, she can't handle something as precious as the custody of your child.
Susana represented my teenaged daughters in my divorce proceeding with their dad. He'd made the process very contentious and difficult - to the extent that the court ordered the kids be represented so they could be heard without having to actually testify against him. Susana handled the girls very well. She was compassionate and responsive to their input. She quickly grasped the totality of the situation and her recommendations to the court were precisely what was in the best interests of the children. I will always be very grateful to Susana for her representation of my girls and her help in protecting them.
Susana is an excellent choice. After interviewing 3 lawyers, once I met Susana I knew I had found the right person to represent me. After trying to mediate my stubborn ex-spouse dragged me to court. He pulled all the stops and hired accountants to attempt to show how little he should pay me. Susana was very professional, really knows her area of expertise and made me feel secure in the direction we planned to go. She encouraged me to take certain steps but if I wasn't comfortable she rallied for me based on my choices. I got more that I expected in the end and she has been very patient and helpful to me. I owe so much to Susana, words can't begin to express my gratitude. I highly recommend Susana.
Separation and custody battles are one of the most stressful and trying life experiences one can go through. I am glad I had Ms. Alba on my side, as she was very empathetic, fair to both sides, yet assertive and bold when the situation called for it. She did her best to keep the case from going to trial and successfully negotiated a parenting plan agreement that was in the best interest of our child. I would highly recommend her as a very straight-forward, bold, and experienced attorney.
Where to begin? She saved me and my children from my abusive spouse. She listened to me and believed me. She pushed the judge hard to rule for me. And after looking around, her fees were less than most other lawyers with her 20 years' experience. I love Susana!
She pretended to care and did help me some and then milked extra fees that were never owed or justified from me.
Divorce is one of the most stressfull experiences in life. I am so happy other clients of Susana referred me to her. I was a mess. She helped me get what I wanted and needed from my ex, her fees are reasonable, she is personable and very experienced. And if she doesn't know the answer, she tells THE TRUTH and finds out.
