Not your run-of-the-mill lawyer
Susan handled my divorce and I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. She is a hard worker, mindful of the costs and very responsive. I can't say anything negative. I would highly recommend her.

She's a rare find
Susan was recommended to me by a friend and I was very happy. She's very knowledgable and held my hand throughout my divorce. She made a very painful situation bearable. She's a fighter for you and will advocate for you and your children. She's also very fair and well respected by other attorneys. She's also very conscious of the cost of a divorce and will not waste your time or money. I don't know what I would have done without her help and expertise.
