Non-profit agency assistance was the best!
When our non-profit board decided to conduct an internal agency investigation, Ms. Meehle was a godsend. She was supportive, thoughtful, knowledgeable and credible. She listened to the challenges we were facing, asked great questions and then put together a plan of action to address each issue thoroughly. She was there for us every step of the way, always patient to explain the status of the investigation, the reasons for her recommendations and the outcomes. When we had to make the tough calls, she represented us with the utmost professionalism. I would refer any of my personal and business contacts to Ms. Meehle and her firm.

Professional, Proactive and Experienced
I give Suzanne and the Meehle Law Firm my highest recommendation. I have been working with Suzanne for over 5 years. I started working with her as I moved the business from Atlanta to Florida. While we had a storied law firm in Atlanta, the Meehle Law Firm provided a higher and more responsive level of service. Our company is the first robotic surgery consulting firm in the US which meant that we were forging new territory and facing atypical challenges. Suzanne provided expert services and guidance throughout our metamorphosis. And, as we negotiated with the largest robotic company in the world, she provided outstanding guidance which positioned us for success for years to come. I have recommended Suzanne to every small business and non-profit I have worked with over the last 5 years. I am looking forward to many more years of being a client of the Meehle Law Firm.

Knowledgeable and responsive
As an attorney myself, I have high standards for legal counsel. When I needed legal representation for my small business I chose Suzanne. Not only has she provided wise counsel, she also has done a wonderful job protecting me from the daily drama often associated with litigation. She is thoughtful in her counsel and preparation of legal documents, and she zealously represents my interests. I frequently recommend her to others.

Helpful and professional
Suzanne was instrumental in helping me start my business. She took the time to listen to my plans and goals, and explain the different options and her recommendations. She was also helpful in answering questions during the life of my business, and in wrapping things up when the business was purchased. Overall I'd give 11 stars if I could.

Very comforting when you are starting a new business to have a lawyer who gets what you are going through.
I had a rather complicated business entity issue. Suzanne and her firm were extremely knowledgable, responsive, kept me informed, almost too much information. What I especially liked is Suzanne is so down-to-earth. Starting a business can be very intimidating on the legal front. Having someone make you feel comfortable about the legalities while you are dotting the i's and crossing the t's and knowing you are going to be protected as you move forward is very reassuring.
