Ms Dennehey was an exceptional. She took our case when other lawyers turned it down because of abpreecisting condition condition. She identified and saw the merit and injustice and the medical wrong in taking my husband and father of our daughters away from us Dedication and compassion were demonstrated throughout our legal battle. Our family will always be grateful to Susan Dennehy

Voice for the Voiceless
After the untimely death of my mother Susan worked diligently with me to give my mother a voice in the negligent care she received. Susan and her team were thorough, supportive and knowledgeable in working my legal matters.
