Professional Support
Thank you for taking my case with Hilton Embassy Suites. An error was made on my reservations, and I tried to resolve the matter, However nobody would listen to me. I reached out to Attorney Shaw and she stepped in and resolved the matter. I highly recommend you to anyone who need attorney services . Thank you Attorney Shaw from the bottom of my heart.

Went the extra mile
Very professional. She was able to assist me with my case and helped move it along. Without her assistance I think my case would still be locked in limbo.

We won!
I want to thank Susan Shaw and Kendall for an outstanding job. My situation was a bit different for the Barnes family. We thought that we were not going to be able to receive our inheritance. We checked around for assistance for a good while, 'tiressly! We went through 6 different attorneys in all. We almost were about to give up when one morning, I said, I am going to find someone who will fight our battle, we thank God, that someone was Susan Shaw. Susan always communicated with us, she worked so hard and was able to get the information from our attorneys in California. I can go on and on talking about Susan. If you are looking for an attorney who is professional and always available when you need her you can count on her, she will be there to assist you in your time of need. The Barnes family appreciate everything that Susan has done by bringing out the truth of the most difficult situation. Thank you Susan!

The Best
I live in California I had some issues with someone in Georgia my family and I hired Susan to be our lawyer remind you I’m in California. Susan was the quarterback of our case. She would interact with us on phone or video to discuss the case that we had there in Georgia. She was really on it. She is an incredible lawyer, fair honest. I would recommend Susan in a heartbeat if you want a lawyer, to quarterback your case, she is the one for you. PS we won our case because of Susan and her team. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wonderful Lawyer
Susan made it possible for my case to settle. If it wasn't for her, I don't know if it would have settled at all. I would recommend her to anyone who needs someone to fight for you.
