Susan and her team worked with me to make great choices, negotiated and protected me and my family's best interest against all odds and always with a smile! She prides herself in knows her clients and their family as if we truly were her own family. She is always very positive and strives towards working for win/win situations and helped me make the best choices with a very challenging situation while being very strategic in her forethought to take care of our short and long term challenges always planning many moves ahead. She is a perfect mix of being aggressive and not afraid of a challenge yet her compassionate and calm nature puts you at peace and this calm is felt even as you enter the court room with her. She is the first one to say pick your battles, not because she has better things to do, but because sometimes we need someone to protect us from ourselves, especially when emotions run high and I greatly appreciate that heart and dedication. After meeting with Susan I knew I would never hire anyone else to fight for the best interest of my son and our family. Highly qualified and always striving above and beyond with such heart, I am thankful everyday for all Susan has done!

After working with Susan for 4 years (my ex never quits), I feel that she is sharp, communicative, and a killer in the courtroom. Susan understands the law, knows all the judges (and frequently the opposing counsel), strategizes, presents you with options, and then executes.
I'm not sure what happened with the 1-star reviewer but the review doesn't seem right to me. More than once Susan has cut her fees to help with the cost of a 4+ year divorce. I can't imagine her providing poor service and then charging for it.

I would recommend Susan for any area of law that she would be willing to take on. She is a no nonsense lawyer and gets the job done. I was not married and had two children. In Mass, apparently, the fathers do not get any rights to their children without being married or going to court to get them so I had an uphill battle for years. This includes three years of constant court hearings, trials, contempts, and so on. I met Susan by chance and decided to give her a shot representing me because I had already been going through this process for years and was not happy with the results so far. Susan, within six months, changed the whole case around and got myself a judgment of Full Custody. I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire Susan.
I have been forced to hire/deal with many lawyers in the last few years and I did not feel like any of them were completely on my side and some were unwilling to fight for what I knew was right. Susan, on the other hand, always made me feel like she not only understood my position but that she was on the same page with me about what needed to happen. She not once tried to pressure me into making an agreement that I didn't feel good about which, in my experience, is rare to find in a lawyer. How could you trust a lawyer to truly fight for your cause and what you believe is right if they don't believe it themselves?
Anybody that is having custody/divorce disputes, I highly recommend you hire this Susan. I also have to say, compared to other lawyers, her price was very good for what she got done.
