This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
A reprimand is an order from the Statewide Grievance Committee after it has found that an attorney has engaged in ethical misconduct. If an attorney receives more than 3 reprimands in 5 years, a presentment must be filed against the attorney so the Superior Court can decide if more serious discipline should be ordered.
Suzann’s comment: “This action arose from a fee dispute from a post-divorce client that we represented for just a few days. The client filed 2 grievances, and the 2nd resulted in a reprimand. In part because of this matter, the Firm stopped handling divorce and post-divorce cases, and has concentrated in other areas for well over 10 years.”

Attorney Beckett sent me a bill for over $16,000.00 for a bankruptcy case. I never agreed to this amount and now she's taking me to Arbitration. I have never heard of anyone charging this much for a Bankruptcy case. I would not recommend her for anything.

Attorney Beckett is extremely competent, professional and compassionate. My wife and I have known Suzann for over a decade and she has assisted us with a variety of family law situations relating to debt. When the chips were down and we were close to being thrown out on the street, Attorney Beckett knew the avenues of survival to pull us through. Her staff is very accomadating and patient when dealing with situations that are sensitive and personal. Without hesitation, I would recommend Attorney Beckett in heartbeat.

In 2008, within my two year stay in CT, I fell into an unfortunate situation in need for legal representation on an issue that was very delicate and sensitive in the eyes of family court, and although I was being cattle by the court system into a category that was far from my character, I had no money and no clue which direction to go, my last attempt was a desperate last minute approach in court where I introduce myself to Suzann, and briefly shared my position. She listen and turned to the Judge at the last minute, ask to approach the bench, got an extension granted. I contacted Suzann again after my job transferred me to Fl, she provided excellent advice and a corrective action plan that resulted in the changers being dissolved in a fairly short amount of time without me having to travel back to CT.
Oh, BTW - this action came without a fee!!!
Not only that, she sends me a Christmas card every year…Thank you again Suzann...

Suzann Beckett is my go-to referral whenever I need a Connecticut attorney for a client or for state-specific legal advice. I trust and respect her skills, her expertise, her ability to listen to her clients, her generous and caring heart, her devotion to family, her integrity, her quest for continuing education and leading-edge knowledge, and her dogged representation of her clients both on the estate planning side as well as in bankruptcy and business. I have known Suzann for nearly 20 years. We have traveled together, learned together, and have been active in the estate planning community as members of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys and Wealthcounsel. I endorse Suzann Beckett at the highest level of professionalism. Look no further than Suzann if you seek a top-notch attorney with expertise and heart.
