    I've represented tenants and landlords, as well as being a landlord myself.

    21 years

For the majority of my career, I spent 9 years as a Legal Services Attorney advocating for the indigent. In that capacity I handled literally thousands of cases, ranging from preserving housing, to preserving the family unit through custody cases. I was able to gain sources of income for clients through getting them the unemployment compensation and disability payments that they were entitled to. I have helped clients erase past criminal records so that a troubled past doesn't inhibit a promising future

 

I have brought all that experience into my private practice at Susquehanna Law Group.

I am very passionate about helping my clients navigate the legal system.

 

I am also the co-founder and president of Ellie's Heart Foundation. Ellie's Heart was started in memory of my daughter Eleanor Lily Ayers who passed away from pediatric heart disease at 8 months of age. Ellie's Heart Foundation has a mission of giving back to the Pediatric Cardiologists at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. I am very excited that Ellie's Heart Foundation will be working with the Children's Heart Group to establish a summer camp program for kids with heart conditions.

 

In addition to Eleanor, I have 2 other children, and a loving husband.

Making the impossible, possible.
Mrs. Ayers deserves all the praise in the world for whom she has had to deal with on our behalf. She has remained calm and professional with all encounters. She goes above and beyond to make sure we are properly prepared for every case she has handled from, divorce, custody, civil, ect. She has handled it all flawlessly and professionally. Mrs. Ayers truly cares about her clients and wants the very best for them and will do everything in her power to make sure she wins their cases. She will only proceed in an ethical and professional manner, I wish more lawyers were like this and wouldn’t let their clients provide false information and lie under oath, and to me this makes for an outstanding lawyer. She is very personable and easy to talk to which is comforting when you are in need of professional legal advice.
