I needed a lawyer to help with the guardianship process for my two autistic children since they are turning 18 and my job currently keeps me out of state. I emailed and called several law firms that worked in this area of the law. Most reply's were impersonal, take out a second mortgage on your house and we will talk. Then there was Suzanne. She was kind, patient and very knowledgeable about the court we would be dealing with. She answered all of my phone and email questions like this case was important. She dealt with all the paperwork expertly and in court secured full guardianship for me when the court was pressing for only partial. And amazingly, Suzanne did it all for a fee that was so reasonable for my family that I could not thank her enough. If you need a lawyer in this area of the law I would highly recommend contacting her.

Suzanne Fanning came into our lives at a time when our family was in great need of advice, assistance with finding a suitable placement for my mother, and action. She communicated with our family often giving us great comfort that all the many legal loose ends were being taken care of properly. Recently, she was able to also assist a colleague of mine and she also received the much needed help required with similar out of state needs. It is hard enough navigating the needs of elder care when you live nearby, it is nearly impossible when living 700 miles away - unless you have someone with the sensitivity and work ethics of someone like Suzanne.

I endorse Suzy highly. While the AVVO form only let's me select one area for endorsement, I would endorse her for litigation, mediation, and estate planning, as well as probate. She is intelligent, skilled, conscientious, and effective, and she has an obvious concern and respect for her clients.
