Susan kept me informed every step of the way.If I had a question Susan had the answer. If I could not get Susan at the office she would call me back promptly. Susan worked around my busy schedule to make sure I was prepared and informed when we went to court.

Excellent lawyer ......very bright
Susan Yellen was and continues to be a great lawyer. I have been her client for over three years. She is extremely knowledgable and very sharp. She does her research. My case was and continues to be difficult. She is empathetic to all issues yet extremely tough when she has to be, especially in the court room. If she felt my thoughts/requests will not fly she let's me know by way of explanations in a kindly manner. She got me the settlement I wanted and continues to work hard on my behalf. Always responsive to my needs. I would not have survived this nasty mess if not for her guidance and hard work. I highly recommend her.

Susan Yellen, an excellent divorce attorney
Susan is a true professional with superior knowledge of matrimonial and family law in New York State. She provided expert guidance and advice, and also explained all aspects of the process so that my decisions were well informed and, what ultimately proved to be, correct choices. She was patient with me, and when necessary, knew when to be aggressive with her adversary.

Professional Divorce Attorney
I recently went through a difficult divorce. Susan handled my particular situation with professionalism and sensitivity. She was always available to answer my questions either by phone or email. Her advice is fair and thorough. The staff which works for her are also professional. I highly recommend Susan Yellen as an attorney.

What a perfect lawyer if your looking to ruin your husbands life and get the kid$$$.. not afraid to ask her clients to lie, insults under her breathe towards the said husband. Some lawyers are good at what they do and do it respectfully, Some want only two things, to take a man down a notch, and to never wear anything other than black power pants heels and a rostering sweater..

Embellished deposition
Susan had a lot of energy to start and was very motivated to get what I deserved$$$ But the only thing, she convinced me to embellish a story about an incident with my husband.. it was a physical argument for sure, but she convinced me saying I was so angry to claim my husband stalked me with a knife around the house. She claims it wouldn’t be a big deal it was just way heavily on the decision of the court. In the end I ended up winning but what I did to my husband with that lie devastated his reputation and I’m disgusted I took the advice of this woman. Money or no money I just feel like my soul’s been tainted by her. Some people just are dark inside. She didn’t care if he went to jail. I was disturbed a little. And the lie ate me alive..

not a good negotiator
To charge more she wastes time with unnecessary paperwork, she is not a good negotiator. I would not waste my time or money.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have worked on a number of cases with Ms. Yellen as opposing counsel. She is a tough litigator and impressive negotiator with a courtroom presence and signature style that has earned her the respect of judges and her fellow attorneys. She demonstrates a balance of professionalism and passionate advocacy that is all too rare among divorce lawyers. Although her sharp wit and quick jabs have, in more than one trial, raised my blood pressure, I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking a smart, skilled, experienced and ethical attorney in a family law matter."
