Professional and Concise!
Wanted to share my first conversation with Susan Sadow regarding my work injury. I have no knowledge of Georgia's workers' compensation process. First, she is concise, knowledgeable, and most of all, HONEST! I filled out the online "free consultation" on her website on a Sunday. I must say their website is very informative and easy to view. Unlike other sites I viewed while searching for an attorney. I received an email notifying me that my information was received, and they would contact me by phone to discuss details further. That same day, I received a text from Susan Sadow asking when is a good time to call. I replied back "Now"! She called me within minutes. She briefly asked me a few questions and provided me with the information I needed to HELP ME. I feel confident and fortunate to have found an honest, direct, knowledgeable, and most of ALL FIERCE HONEST ATTORNEY! THANK YOU SUSAN!

The best in Atlanta
My experience with Susan Sadow and the whole Sadow & Froy team has been nothing short of exceptional! The entire staff is very responsive, prompt and extremely professional, all while being friendly and considerate. Susan’s professionalism and compassion puts her in a league of her own! She always available to answer and questions or concerns I had at any time during the process. Susan will be straight forward with what she promises and always over delivers! If you need an attorney that is knowledgeable and will work hard for you she is one of the best attorneys in Atlanta!

The help that I needed
I injured my dominant hand in the line duty as a law enforcement officer. I had a broken and dislocated thumb. After nearly six months, the injury was not healing and was still very swollen and painful. The only orthopedic surgeon on the list of doctors my employer provided was not responding to my concerns and refused to order an MRI. I contacted Susan Sadow who understood my injury, and the struggles I was having getting proper treatment. She got the workers compensation insurance company to approve changing my doctor to a hand specialist, who ordered an MRI. I was correct that my injury was not healing. It required reconstructive surgery. The surgery was successfully performed and I went through many months of rehabilitation and occupational therapy afterward. For more than fourteen months I was out of work losing wages from overtime and missed extra-duty employment. The settlement Susan negotiated on my behalf helped with the lost income and allowed me to train for a new career. Susan was instrumental in getting me the treatment I needed and the financial compensation to start over professionally. I wish I had contacted her sooner.

My experience with Susan was nothing short of amazing. Susan was professional and caring . Susan gave advice that was best for me and never did she steer me to make decisions for her financial gain. Even when it seemed she was not going gain in my case she never stopped showing care , for that I am greatly appreciated!!! I will recommend Susan to handle any workers comp case.

Just trust her
As a fuel truck driver injured on the job and facing surgeries and a possible career ending outcome, I found myself overwhelmed with not being sure what action I should take. The day I made that first call to Susan, all that ended. She told me what to expect, had a plan to reach my goals, made sure I was receiving as much compensation as I could through weekly checks, and even told me about compensation for things such as transportation that I knew nothing about. Today my case was settled expertly and to my total satisfaction. So glad I didn’t try to make the journey alone!

My experience
I tore my rotator cuff on the job and was getting the run around from my employer. I recalled that my brother had used Susan Sadow for his worker’s comp case so I gave her a call. It was truly the best decision I could have made. Susan made sure I got the care that I needed and ANY concern that I had she addressed it immediately. I also had the privilege of working with some of her team Brandy and Elizabeth they were amazing. They were always there to assist with any thing either by phone,text, or email. If you have a worker’s comp case and looking for the BEST I highly recommend giving Susan a call you will be glad that you did.

Exemplary Workers Compensation Representation!
In the throws of the pandemic and a pending disastrous workers compensation claim I was struggling with appropriate medical care and was NOT familiar with WC In's and outs. After a year of trying to muddle through I knew I needed representation to assist me with my claim involving multiple repetitive injuries of multiple body parts. I have to say Susan Sadow saved the day!! She guided me through this process and made everything sensible, gave me great peace of mind knowing my medical/surgical needs were always met! The outcome of my claim would never have been as great had I continued on my own. Susan and her staff made everything work in my favor always with superb communication and respectful inquiries. I cannot stress enough to anyone who is involved in a WC claim to seek her representation. It's too involved and not as cut and dry as the adjusters, employers or insurance representatives want you to believe. Please...never, ever hesitate to call her if you were injured at work. You deserve experienced and utmost professional representation.

Great professional Lawyer
I am a 22 year old that experienced a back injury on the job. When I was injured, it felt like my world came to an end until Susan Sadow stepped up and took on the position of being my lawyer. With Susan representing me, I never once had to worry that I wasn’t going to get the proper care needed to get me back on my feet. She was amazing at making sure that I had a top notch surgeon, making sure I didn’t have any questions, and solving my workers compensation claim. If I had to suggest getting a lawyer, I would tell you Susan is the lawyer to use. Susan communicated every step of the way, even if it was a small detail, Susan called me immediately. I couldn’t be more thankful for Susan helping me get through this tough time!

A.R./Flight Attendant, 63 years old
When I initially spoke to Susan, my case was going along fairly smoothly but I was unsure of when or if I needed an attorney or where one would fit into my case. She assured me that the best time to introduce an attorney into a case is right from the begining. I was completely uneducated concerning workers compensation and how it worked. She made me aware of rights that I didn't even know I had. After one unsuccessful rotator cuff surgery, Susan advocated on my behalf to get me to a different doctor with a much better track record. Although it resulted in a 2nd surgery, I was in much better hands. Needless to say, I was very frightened at that point, but Susan continued to advocate on my behalf towards a positive outcome. Almost 1 1/2 years after my injury, my case was successfully mediated and settled thanks to Susan and her expertise.

AMAZING ATTORNEY
My father used Susan Sadow before I needed her. He spoke very highly of her and he was right in doing so! She’s amazing!!! Although my case was small, she always kept me updated, helped me with any questions or concerns, and did her very best to handle my case! Susan and Reba were both always so friendly and prompt! If I need a workers comp attorney in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate in who I would choose and will HIGHLY recommend her to all my friends and family!

Grateful we found Susan Sadow
Susan is a superstar! We retained Susan for a workman's compensation matter. Our family member was left with a traumatic brain injury as a result of a commercial motor vehicle accident. The case was complicated and required over three years of litigation and negotiation. First of all, Susan completely "owned" this case from beginning to end. Susan is diligent and a tough negotiator. She was always available to us to answer every question and provide any detail about the case. Communication with Susan was always caring, clear and prompt. When necessary, Susan brought in additional support from medical, financial, translation and guardianship experts. Susan's dedication to our case resulted in a large seven figure settlement and peace of mind for our family.

Changed my life!
What can I say about Atty Susan Sadow? I can say that she is an incredible Atty. I retained Atty Sadow years ago (1993) when I had experienced an injury. Atty Sadow went immediately to work on my behalf. She ensured that I not only received compensation, but also medical care. She was always available when I called, never rushed me, and was consistent with updates as they came in. I often think about Atty Sadow when I look at the injury Atty commercials on television, and I see the look on the people's faces when their Atty tells them they won. That was me, and the Atty was Susan Sadow. She literally changed my life. As a single Mother, she understood that my ability to provide for my children was vital, and that appeared to always be as important to her as it was to me. Atty Sadow not only made an impact on me, but she also impacted my son to attend Law School. He is now an Attorney also! I THANK YOU, Atty Sadow. Thank you for who you were then......and of course who you are now.

Excellent representation
I was so frustrated with the worker compensation process when I contacted Susan. I was getting the "run around" from the worker's compensation case manager, my calls were going unanswered, and I felt like I was not getting what I deserved. From the first call to the end of my case, with mediation, I have received support, encouragement, guidance, and education on the "system". Whenever I had questions, and I had many, someone got back to me very promptly. Brandy was exceptionally helpful when I had questions about my weekly checks or my reimbursement. During my mediation, Susan spoke very well of my situation as she had listened to all of my struggles and really represented me well. I would HIGHLY recommend Susan to anyone who is involved in a worker's compensation situation!

Review
Susan Sadow is an excellent lawyer, Who puts her clients need first, she listens, explains in an understandable matter. Shes also provided translation due to me being a Spanish Speaking citizen. My case was a work injury claim. After receiving medical care she mitigated with the insurance company and won the case. I am happy with the outcome and for this reason I recommend her. Thank you Susan Sadow

"I have had the pleasure of working with Susan on several cases. She is a lawyer who holds herself to the highest standards of excellence and is a true, relentless advocate for her clients. I have the upmost respect for her and would not hesitate in fully recommending her to any of my family or my friends. Best of all, she is a great friend and person to be around."
Workers compensation Attorney | May 16

"Ms. Sadow's reputation for excellence spreads among her fellow attorneys and among her clients. Having met Ms. Sadow and seen the results of her work time and again, she has likely earned every compliment written about her on this site ten times over."
Workers compensation Attorney | May 29
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Susan is a highly competent and effective advocate. Litigating against her is a pleasure, and I endorse her without reservation."
Workers compensation Attorney | Mar 31
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have had the opportunity to mediate a number of cases where Susan represented the claimant. She is always very well prepared, has helped her clients understand the process, and has done the necessary groundwork to get her clients top-dollar settlements. She realizes the importance of mediations and puts a lot of work into them. She has an excellent grasp of the complex issues which vex less experienced claimant’s attorneys, such as proper handling of MSAs, Social Security offsets, and subrogation liens. Her excellent advocacy skills in the courtroom are well known, but I have had the privilege of seeing her use the slightly different skill-set necessary to help her clients get the best settlement to be had though the mediation process and exhaust all ancillary sources to maximize the benefits for her clients. She truly is a Super Lawyer"
