She got the best settlement possible in a tough divorce case
Susan got the best settlement possible in a difficult case where the other party was lying. In addition, I hired her midway through the case because I did not see a good outcome with my existing lawyer. Kudos to her and her paralegal Laura Sirois!

A pleasure to work with Susan Stamps
Susan did an excellent job helping me through my divorce. She listened, counseled, supported and encouraged me during the difficult process. Getting divorced is never easy. I felt good having Susan on my side. I have already passed her name on to friends and will continue to do so.

A great advocate
Susan helped and guided me through a difficult time of divorce. She was supportive, and she explained each step in the process clearly. I felt she was absolutely my advocate, knowledgeable and experienced. Susan smoothly handled a few uncomfortable situations that arose when my ex and his lawyer started to play games. She found straight forward solutions that avoided additional lawyer time (cost) and unnecessary court visits. Susan looked out for my interests in the settlement while also explaining what was possible within the bounds of the law. All in all the whole process took about 7 months beginning to end. At the time it felt like it was never going to end, but I have since understood that it cannot really happen much quicker than that. Many Thanks

Susan worked towards a settlement on my case from the first day that I went to her office. She kept me grounded in the law at times when it was easy for me to get emotional. While my conversations with her were balanced, productive, and sometimes disagreeable, I always felt she fiercely represented my best interests when interacting with the opposition's attorneys and whenever we went to court. Because of Susan's experience, I was able to come to an understanding of what the courts would deem the middle ground and this came through in the settlement of the case.

Got me what I wanted!
My daughter lives with her mother in the US, while I live in my native country, Denmark. My daughter's mother prevented me from talking to or seeing my daughter in over a year. Susan helped me file successfully with a US court and negotiate an agreement that got me to see my daughter again in spite of the difficult situation with me in Denmark. Thank you, Susan - great work!
