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.

Highly Recommend
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.

Seriously the *Very Best Criminal Defense* Around!
After hiring Susannah as my criminal defense attorney and pleading not guilty even after a plea bargain was offered, we were scheduled for a jury trial. She was straight with me about everything going on as I was with her. She went right to work and kept me and my innocence in tact! And no jury trial or jail! Thank you for your perseverance in all that you did! Truly the best.

Traffic ticket wizard
Susannah, most definitely had a up hill battle w/ my case! She sat down w/ me heard me out & told me I had a tough case, but that she was willing to take it on. At the end of the day she took care of business. Ticket went in my favor, her fees were awesome & I highly recommend her for any traffic violations you receive!!! Thank you Team Justice!!!!

Higly Recommend
Mrs.Justice-Hall is definitely a great lawyer to choose and consider, she was very knowledgeable , with competitive fees. When discussing my case with her she was very considerate and patient when explaining legal terms. I was impressed and thankful for the extra miles she would go and she was just a phone call away discussing any concerns that I had. I cant thank her enough for how she handled my case.I definitely would recommend and hire her again.

Great and professional lawyer
I am pleased with the experience I had with Susannah Hall-Justice. She listened carefully to my circumstance and responded with valuable advices right away when we first spoke on the phone. Not to mention the competitive fees I paid for the services. Other lawyers in town I contacted requested higher fees without paying attention to my situation. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Would not recommend
DISCLAIMER: What happend to me/us, may not happen to you. This is my/our experience. This is true and accurate. My wife and I along with our daughters was in a accident last year. Won't go into details but, We was rear ended and crunched between cars. Totally not our fault. It was a cut and dry scene. It has taken Ms. Hall-Justice, almost a year to settle this case. In the mean time, I was constantly getting paper work she needed and even more than once for the exact same thing. Also, Instead of combining the 3 people that was hurt in our car ( all family) she did it all separate. That made a whole lot more money in her pocket. Trust me when I say, we got back peanuts after she got finished charging us so many fees. She took out fees for expenses, and then, attorney's fees. The fees and expenses, and fees killed what I got back really back. Even when I would have to keep doing some of the work. Also, communication was very faint. My wife had to send her an email that wasn't pleasant just so we could her something. We was ready to fire her but, we waited that long at that time. It seemed like forever. Then, I get a call. Every time we would go awhile without hearing anything, we would call to find out what was going on. Furthermore, I speak to Ms. Hall-Justice one day and she tells me how, she couldn't get a collector to take the money ( or something like that.) So, I ask her, " what if it goes on my credit report?" She states, " let's hope it doesn't come to that." Seriously?!?!!? Pretty crappy! No, I would NOT recommend her to anyone. For a few obvious reasons.
