Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Susannah Hall-Justice! She is very professional and true to her word. She stayed on top of everything every step of the way. She kept me informed in the most timely manner possible, and she and her office were very prompt in responding to me. She is calm and helped me to keep my anxiety reduced during what was a very stressful time.

First Time OWI
Susannah was incredibly helpful, readily available and communicative, informative, compassionate, and encouraging from beginning to end during the process for my OWI case. She knows local courts and justices very well and negotiated an amazing plea deal with the prosecutor that included allowing me to retain my driver’s license and avoid the costly interlock device that the judge for my case typically insists. As a first time offender, I could not have asked for a better deal! I am so glad that I consulted with multiple attorneys first, and I am so grateful to have worked with Susannah. Her experience and professionalism alone are worth every cent!

Excellent Attorney
Susannah is a skilled lawyer. She is smart, articulate, sympathetic, practical and realistic. She has exceptional insight into the minds of the Lawyers, Prosecutors, Judges and Jury pool in Tippecanoe County, and this makes a huge difference to how effective she is in her cases. In our case, she was particularly adept in how well she presented a document to the judge which resulted in a favorable outcome.

Thank you Susannah!
Susannah was recently my criminal defense attorney in Warren County Indiana. Susanna worked very hard for me to get the outcome that I received and she’s a very good communicator. Her and her staff were very punctual at returning phone calls or emails. I would recommend her if you need an attorney on your case.

Criminal Defense
“When I found myself in a sticky legal situation, I began searching for a highly praised attorney, and stumbled across Susan Hall Justice. My assumption was that I would be able to find a high quality criminal defense lawyer at the firm, but I couldn't have anticipated hiring an attorney as excellent as Susan Hall. Without getting into detail about my personal legal situation, I can just say that the outcome of my case was not only better than I hoped for, but I am very confident that that outcome was the result of having Susan as my lawyer. Upon first meeting her, I was struck by her calm and understated confidence. Her knowledge of the law surrounding my case was vast, but nothing was taken for granted. Any aspect which she was not familiar with was thoroughly researched, and throughout the process I consistently felt that she was always prepared and motivated. Having Susan as my lawyer for the second time. I never doubted that I had the best defense that I could hope to have. Ultimately, hiring her proved to be one of the more important decisions I have made, and I will always be grateful to her for helping me navigate an incredibly difficult time in my life. I couldn't give higher praise or a better recommendation.

Very Satisfied
Susannah was very thorough in gathering all of the background of my case. She understood my priorities and was more than successful in achieving the result I wanted. I would highly recommend her to friends and will use her again if needed.

Definitely Satisfied
She was great, did a great job communicating with me and did not make me feel like she had better things to be doing. She did her job and kept me out of jail at a good and fair price. She also went above and beyond by spending time on the phone with me to give me legal advice about a car accident and explain those laws to me, which was completely unrelated to my case. I had a great experience and would recommend her to anyone who needs a good lawyer!

Thank you, Susannah!
Thank you, Susannah! My case was due to a car accident where I suffered a back injury. After many months of physical rehabilitation and years after the accident, the other insurance company barely wanted to cover my lost wages for one week’s worth of work. I was distraught and disheartened. I expressed to Susannah that I did not want to accept the offer for my years’ worth of pain from which I still suffer from. Susannah encouraged and supported me in standing up against the opposing attorneys even when it did not seem like they were going to budge at all. After many more months of insulting offers, she coordinated a mediation, and was able to help me receive almost 10 times as much as their original offer. Although I may not get over the physical ramifications of the accident, I could not be happier with how Susannah represented me and the resolution that she was able to facilitate. I could not give her a higher recommendation for the amount of time and care she put into my case. Thank you again Susannah and all the best to you in the future! You deserve it!

DUI in Indiana
My case was in Tippecanoe County, a DUI I had fought from Illinois where I actually live. Susannah and her assistant had always answered or returned my call within a few hours, if not sooner. One thing I have to mention that made me feel so good about choosing her was that she knew so many people, it seemed like everyone, in the courthouse - by name. My probation officer even recognized her handwriting. She thoroughly explained the processes of my court date and how it would go a day before court to reassure and answer any questions. She even advised me on future expungement after the case. She always, always, always went the extra mile.

Fantastic service
They were helpful. I had an accident with a car, while I was riding my bike with some broken bones and open cuts. Susannah was already ready to help, she explained clearly the situation and conducted the process according to the deal, even when I was out of the USA.

Fantastic lawyer to have on your side
Ms. Hall-Justice is professional and works hard on her client's behalf. She saved me alot of extra court dates and arranged a favorable outcome in my case. Whnever I called either her or her staff answered promptly and offered their time and advice she always remembered my name and case details without needing a reminder something I believe is sorely lacking in most if not all other offices and professional environments. I highly recommend.

Extremely Responsive, Helpful, and Transparent
When I first consulted with Susannah, I was in an uncertain situation and was very pessimistic going into my first legal conflict. Throughout my time working with her, she was always transparent with me and never attempted to give me any unwarranted false hope or speculated opinions. She was always professional, responsive, and respectful throughout my time working with her. At the end of the day, I received the best possible outcome and I attribute it all to Susannah. She was incredible to work with and I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation.

Attorney Hall-Justice worked extremely hard to represent my grandson with evidence that was not in his favor. She's very honest without making false promises. Communication was always open. She showed compassion. She worked with my family and I endlessly...not only legally but financially as well.
