Estate Settlement
It was a pleasure to work with Ms. Kozlowski. My being in North Carolina and her being in Indiana proved to be no problem at all. She was always prompt in answering my questions and providing specifics of Indiana law. Ms. Kozlowski helped my brothers and me get the settlement we were looking for.

Knowledgeable, organized, efficient, cost effective, "tell it like it is" approach
I was trying to close my mother's estate. The lawyer I started with was new to the field and not doing well. I amicably parted-ways with them then switched to Susan. Attorney Kozlowski jumped right on the case. She explained the process well. It proceeded just like she described it. Lisa in her office was always quick to respond to my requests. They were organized and efficient. I needed the legal work to happen quickly and they were able to make it happen. It was a great relief to have Susan and Lisa handling this for me. I especially liked Susan's "tell it like it is" approach. I highly recommend Attorney Kozlowski.

Highly Recommend -
Sue Kozlowski took her time to explain the social security disability process and guided me through each step. Always available to answer my questions and concerns. Sue treated me as a person and just not another case - she took time to listen to me. Lisa (her assistant) was prompt with answering my emails and assisted in keeping my medical records organized and up to date. I can not thank them enough for the support and patience throughout the long process.

Excellent Legal Service leading to a pleasant, rewarding SSDI experience.
Susan and Lisa were attentive to all communications, phone calls, emails, required responses by the SSA, and they guided me through all of the steps of the Social Security Disability application and approval process. Denial was expected initially and they provided the encouragement needed to stay the course. When it came time for the hearing before the ALJ, everything was prepared and in order. The hearing date was expedited by Susan she was able to get my case before the judge in 5 months instead of the usual 12 to 18 months. Now I am simply awaiting an approval letter and I can move forward with my treatment and my life. Many thanks to Susan Kozlowski and her team.

Whats in my Heart
I can't seem to find the words to Thank Sue Kozlowski for what she has done for me. Always being their for me with every phone call and email I have sent. I am so happy I chose her. She is really one tough Lady. I kept getting denied for disability but once I called Sue I never had another denial letter and she did her magic and won my case on the first time. I would and will suggest this tough Lady to anyone who feels like they want to give up. She really knows the laws. Give her a call if you want your case and a attorney who responds to you to get things moving and a Win. With all my Heart Thank You Sue!

The Upmost Professional
From day one of me contacting attorney Kozlowski I knew she was the person for the job. After a brief conversation on the phone with her I was already confident in my decision to choose her. She asked a few short and to the point questions concerning my case, explained what would be her plan and what I needed to do to follow the plan. She also explained her legal fees (which are extremely reasonable) and constructed a plan for that as well. She told me that as long as I followed her lead that the only time we needed to meet would be at the courthouse, which was to my benefit for cost purposes. Upon meeting attorney Kozlowski for the first time she was beyond professional. We had a short meeting in one of the briefing rooms at the courthouse. She collected the material she ask me to have for her, told me exactly what to do once in the courtroom, and then began to just talk about things that would take the nerves away from me that I assume were all over my face. The whole time she gave a vibe of confidence in herself which as a client gives you confidence in her and yourself about your case. My case was settled the 2nd time we stepped into the courtoom after the other party requested a continuance he first time. In both interactions with attorney Kozlowski she was always on top of things and ready. Also her staff does a great job of contacting you through email to make sure everything is in line the weeks or days leading up to the court date. I highly recommend attorney Kozlowski to others and really appreciate how she and her staffed handle my case. Wouldn't even think about reaching out to another lawyer for a consultation or legal advice if it's something attorney Kozlowski can take care of for me.

Child Support Modification
Attorney Kozlowski recently helped me with a Child Support Modification. Although the process is long and frustrating, and actually had to go to trial as the other side would not mediate, attorney Kozlowski did an amazing job in the court room and got even more then I was expecting! She knows the law. The opposing counsel clearly did not. He professionalism showed during the trial as the judge often rolled his eyes at opposing counsel. I couldn't be happier with the final outcome and would definitely recommend!

Susan and her staff were always there to answer all my questions. Even on the day of court. She was walked me threw everything and if I didn't understand she would explain. She even talked for me in court when I was unsure what the Judge was saying. I still everyone of her and staff and they should use her. She doesn't leave you out in the cold. Thank You Susan for all your help. And everyone give her a call.

thank you
I hired attorney Kozlowski to handle my divorce a few years ago. She and her team were thorough, timely, sensitive and considerate regarding my case, my needs and those of my child. I recently reached out to attorney Kozlowski with questions additional questions. Again, she was responsive and specific. She and her team have done a great job representing me.

Excellent attorney with unique approach to her profession
I have never been so impressed with the professionalism, personal attention, and office staff of an attorney as I was with Susan Kozlowski. As is usually the case, I came to Susan with an issue that was very troublesome for me. She was so friendly, helpful, expedient, easy to contact, and reassuring during the whole matter that it didn't seem so troublesome after she got involved. I was hoping to have her assist me with another matter, but she was honest and said that particular area of law was not one she dealt with and on her own began vetting other attorneys for me. Susan answered emails quicker than ever expected, and answered her own phone if she was available to talk. Her billing was extremely reasonable as well. I would highly recommend Susan Kozlowski to anyone needing an attorney. If she isn't the person for your particular issue, she will be honest about it and most likely point you in the right direction!

High Professional Standard
I hired Susan last year as my prior attorney was retiring. She stepped right into my complex divorce/international kidnapping case. She is concise and to the point. She takes positions that she knows will hold in court and she attempts to keep her fees low by focusing on the real issue at hand and not the other minutia that opposing counsel attempts to draw her into. I highly recommend hiring and retaining her as I have and continue to do so.

Modification of Child Support
“I used Atty Kozlowski for my modification of parenting time and child support. She was great. I personally appreciated the quick responses from her office through Lisa, her assistant. It was nice to have someone return my emails, texts or calls within a day with answers to my numerous questions. They even responded to me after hours and on weekends. Attorney Kozlowski was “spot on” and had my best interests protected. She was definitely on my side. ”

Excellent attorney!
Sue helped me to finalize an agreement that involved mediating the payoff regarding real estate, co owned by myself and a another individual. She was very helpful in her knowledge, skills, and abilities, in making sure I understood all the legal aspects, involving the expected outcome, if mediation was not acceptable. I would highly recommend Sue and her assistant Lisa for future legal matters. She was compassionate, prompt, and very common sense in the process from the beginning to the end.....she always accepted my calls and worked hard to move the situation along, which always is in everyone's best interests....thanks Sue and Lisa for your help! I appreciated all you both did for me!

Great work and efficienat staff
I am from out of state and received a speeding ticket. Susan was able to get this reduced to a non-moving violation which saved me about $300 and possibly points towards my auto insurance. Lisa was good with keeping me in the loop and insuring i received all relevant documents in a timely manner; would highly recommend

Susan Kozlowski Recommendation
We were very thankful for the legal counsel that Susan provided. We needed a divorce attorney who was professional, knowledgeable and detailed oriented and who could also provide personalized attention. And Susan was exactly the attorney we needed. She continually communicated the options we had and kept us informed throughout the legal process. I will continue to use Susan for any legal work and would highly recommend her for any prospective client.
