I hired this lawyer way back 2 years ago. After she took my case she didn't do anything toward my case. Long story short---if I do it myself I would do better job than her. Please don't get fooled by her. Don't be her next target!!!
I hired Susan b Cohodes to represent me in an auto accident that was clearly 100% the others drivers fault. Running a stop sign at high speed and smashed into the driver side rear of my vehicle a few blocks from my home in Arlington, Wa. Susan didn't give me any advice or keep me informed on the process or why it was taking forever to settle with the insurance company responsible.This case went to a jury trial I had no idea what would take place at trial.I was not prepared what so ever. in her closing statement after 2 full days in court, Susan cohodes slammed my character to the jury calling me a "goofy kid" stating I had no case and should'nt be entitled to any compensation.(at the time i was 26 years old with a new born child to care for.) needless to say I lost the case and was stuck paying thousnds in medical bills and not allowed to see the healthcare providers who i sought care with because of the multiple outstanding balances owed.The trial took place in 1998 shoreline district court where the defendant lived. As a result of the vedict I suffered from ptsd.
Susan was terrible. She did not know the answers to my questions and took forever getting back to me. In the end her ignorance played a negative factor. Could not get Susan to return my calls.
Susan was very professional and helpful with my cases (2 accidents!). I am very happy with the result and would recommend her to anyone.
I would not recommend this lawyer to NOBODY. Susan Cohodes never respond to my phone calls and did not do good job on my case.
