Determined, trustworthy, knowledgeable and compassionate
Susan Rosen has consistently provided legal services that are superb. I have total confidence in both her knowledge and judgement. She is compassionate, considerate and straight-forward. Her priority is always what is best for me, not what is most advantageous for her. I have consulted Susan on both personal (wills, etc) and business (liability, employment) issues. Her advice has always been delivered in a way that is easy for me to understand, with my decision being the final word. She is very determined and will see any case/project through to the end, always looking for the best resolution for her clients.

Smart, responsive, insightful
Susan Rosen was an excellent attorney for the financial / real estate contractual issue we faced. She did a fine job and we got what we wanted out of the settlement. She was "no nonsense" - to the point and very realistic in what we should expect. I'd use her services again in a hear beat!

Susan Rosen
I have engaged Ms. Rosen on a number of occasions for both personal and business matters in South Carolina. She is an extremely knowledgeable and competent attorney who provides highly professional and pragmatic counsel and advice. She has proven to be a skilled litigation strategist and valued advisor in business decisions. As a lawyer and a client, I have the highest regard for her and would choose to have her represent me, as the need may arise, in the future.

A clients lawyer
We worked with Susan on a complex litigation for a number of years, the suit went through the full appeal process. In retrospect there is no attorney that I would prefer to have other than Suasan Rosen. Susan represents a client with their best interest as the main consideration
