Working with Suzanne was a wonderful experience!
Suzanne prepared our will, and it was a wonderful experience! She did a wonderful job of advising us and helping up prepare the proper documents. I would highly recommend her.

A Truly Wonderful Lawyer
We had the recent good fortune to meet Suzanne when my Aunt died, as she had worked up her will with Suzanne. We were having a difficult time dealing with everything for all of the usual reasons, but every time we met with Suzanne we left feeling informed and secure that we were in good hands. Suzanne was professional, very knowledgable, and helped us to understand the process ahead of us. She was careful to inform us of, and explain any options that we had available to us, including the possible consequences of different choices. Suzanne was extremely patient with our many, many questions, and careful process of working things through, and we felt that we could speak very directly with her, and receive the same in response. Her compassion and good sense of humor, much appreciated in the situation, was an extra bonus, and I felt like I was dealing with a friend when working with her. Given that we were out of state, we had to do a lot of communication by email, and I have never before had someone respond so quickly to my questions. Suzanne went above and beyond helping us with everything that we needed, and was a pleasure to work with. We keep trying to talk her into moving to our state so we could have a lawyer that we both trust and like, but she has, unfortunately for us, declined the invitation. We highly recommend Suzanne to anyone needing legal help.

Estate Settlement
This was my first experience with a lawyer in a personal sense. (I've dealt with a number of lawyers in the business sense). The encounter came about following the death of my sister and I didn't know where to begin or how. Ms. Presley was both understanding and knowledgeable while being patient, kind and understanding at the same time. The problem was further exacerbated by having to do a significant fraction of the work from a distance of 2,000 miles. ( I wish that she practiced in California as well). She would be my number 1 pick for personal affairs in the legal sense.

Friendly and knowledgeable
Suzanne was the first lawyer that my wife and I met at the law firm we chose to draw up our Living Trust. She was very friendly, but we quickly realized that she was also very knowledgeable. She did a great job of making it all comprehensible. That was about five years ago, and since then I have been back to the firm several times for business-related issues and financial planning, sometimes seeing Suzanne, other times seeing the firm's Partners. She represents them well. It is obvious that she is highly regarded and respected by her colleagues.

Thankful
Suzanne is very professional but also very personable. She shows a genuine concern and compassion for her clients. We needed help understanding some legal papers and exactly what to do with them after my moms passing. She went through everyone of them with us, giving direction on each and also tried herself to make contact with one of the parties while we were with her to help us get the answers we needed. She was very patient to answer our questions and has continued to respond very promptly to our questions via email. She offered suggestions on how we might handle certain things but she made sure we knew what our options were and what me might face for each concerning taxes...

Personal Touch
Suzanne is my estate attorney and she combines legal knowledge, professionalism and a personal touch during all of my interactions with me. She has done a very effective job of creating my estate planning and does it remotely as I live in Florida. Very happy with her representation.

Suzanne Presley
Suzanne is my father's estate attorney. She and her support staff at Pyke and Associates have done an outstanding job in directing me to handle his affairs upon his passing. She insured that I was prepared as Trustee of his estate. I had a million questions and she answered them all. She has additionally worked with me in the selling of his properties. Proper titles were executed correctly with the closing attorneys for the properties. Additionally, this will occur with additional properties at some significant distance from Georgia. Bottom line is she has done an outstanding job, it has been a pleasure working with her.

Awesome Job
Suzanne did a great job for me when my mother passed away. She took care of pretty much everything for me from filing the many life insurance policy claim forms, transferring investments into my name,, and setting up my trust. Her and her crew did a wonderful job and were super responsive. They were fun to work with also.

Professional and Knowledgeable
My parents and I worked with Suzanne Presley at Pyke and Associates several years ago on estate planning. Suzanne was professional and knowledgeable. She efficiently handled all details required, and gave us the peace of mind that our loved ones will be be protected and cared for. After my mother passed away, Suzanne was understanding and helpful. I would highly recommend Suzanne and Pyke & Associates to anyone in a similar situation.

Suzanne Presley is highly recommended
I worked with Suzanne Presley several years ago on estate planning for my elderly parents. She professionally and efficiently handled all details required, from wills, power of attorney, to helping complete Medicaid applications. It was a comfort to me and my family knowing that we had the legal knowledge behind us with Suzanne's assistance. I would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne and Pyke & Associates to anyone in a similar situation.

Great Lawyer
My parents used Pyke & Assoc for their estate planning. i was the executor of both of their wills. Once i notified Suzanne of their deaths, which were only 15 months apart, she prepared everything i needed to probate the will and settle my parents estates. She provided me with detailed directions and checklists to help me organize the steps i needed to follow. I am so glad my parents chose Pyke & Assoc and that Suzanne was assigned to handle my legal matters.

I would highly recommend Ms. Suzanne Presley
I have worked with Ms. Suzanne Presley and her firm, Pyke & Associates, for almost 2 years since the passing of my husband. Suzanne has handled a very complicated estate with extreme professionalism and competence, while at the same time treating me as a friend. Suzanne Presley has helped me through a very rough time, and her legal abilities are outstanding in every way. I would highly recommend Suzanne Presley to anyone looking for an attorney to help them with Estate Planning, or actually working through an Estate.

Impatient, a bit arrogant
In a brief consulation (which was not a free consult as listed on the website), Ms. Presley seemed knowledgeable, but impatient, had a bit of an attitude, and some arrogance. I did not feel that she treated me, the customer, with respect and compassion for the most difficult situation I was dealing with. I found another attorney that better suited my style and needs. Admittedly, knowledge is the most important skill, but a person's demeanor and attitude are most important in a successful client/attorney relationship. She could benefit from recognizing WHO is the customer and have a bit of humility in serving the needs of the customer.

Ruled by emotions, not professionalism
After rejecting her fee to accomplish a minor change to our Estate Plan, we had another attorney handle the matter at 1/10 the fee demanded by Presley. When we submitted the revision for inclusion in our Plan, she had a snit and demanded we retrieve our Estate Plan which her firm had drafted 9 years ago at considerable expense to us. The irony is that the firm stands to lose a great deal of money when I pass and they are called on to administer the plan for my wife.
