final outcome
My case has been finished for a week now. And i am pleased to say that I have gotten exactly what i wanted. Each time Susan and i went into the court room we came out with something we went in to get. She fights hard and cares about the outcome. If you want a great family law attorney, this is the person to go to! I would use her services again if ever needed and will continue to use her services for all of my legal matters.

Divorce and Criiminal
Susan handled my divorce case and i could not be more pleased . She was extremely knowledgeable and very professional and very responsive . She was always available to me and emailed me right back and returned my calls promptly . I was very pleased with the outcome. She's very persistent and tenacious but yet remains professional. She also handled A criminal matter for a family member and did a outstanding job with that as well. Please charged we're also very reasonable. I would highly recommend her and I will tell all my friends about her and I will use her again should the need arise.

SUSAN Widenbaum is not just an attorney but a caring human being!!!
I needed help in a life or death situation with my daughter that was seriously ill. Ms. Widenbaum immediately helped. She not only shared in answering every question but extended herself way beyond a lawyer's required work. I would recommend her to anyone. She helped to save our daughter's life. We can never thank her enough. She is professional in every aspect and yet puts heart behind her work.

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Widenbaum recently helped me with a traffic offense and I've consulted with her on many other matters. She was extremely efficient, professional, caring, knowledgeable, trustworthy, understanding and compassionate. She kept me informed about my case and explained things to me in a way that I could understand what was going on. She is very personable and seemed to know most people we came in contact with at the Courthouse. She is a diligent negotiator and very hard working. I'm glad she represented me and I don't think anyone could have done a better job then Ms. Widenbaum. I thank her for everything and I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.

Child support matter
Ms. Widenbaum was professional and personable. She was honest and aggressive in her representation of my concern, and left no doubt that she was the right one for the job. Completely thorough! How do you spell MUWAA!! In the King's English! She is a class act! Her level headedness and fairness in a sometimes be-moaned profession (the law) is further proof that there are sometimes silver linings behind even the darkest clouds.

Always professional while yet personable, Atty. Widenbaum's knowledge of the law, while remaining completely honest in all aspects regarding the matter at hand, actually helped me to settle down and leave the matter to her. She is completely thorough and relentless in her work. It was refreshing to see someone work that hard on my behalf. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Atty. Widenbaum is a class act!

Awesome Attorney!
Awesome Attorney. She is an absolute wonderful person who will aggressive defend you. I've used her for legal matters in the past and have always been 150% satisfied. I recommend checking with her on any legal matter you may be faced with. If she can't help you, she will refer you to someone who can. Even if you're not within the same county, check with her. You will not be sorry you did. .

Great experience!
Terrific experience with Mrs. Widenbaum as my attorney during my bankruptcy. She went above and beyond what was called for. She was professional while being caring and helpful. Unlike other attorneys I have had in the past she listens to what you are saying and sees you as a real person with problems. She was very sympathetic to my situation and was always willing to answer any questions I had. She took care of everything in advance so that I didn't have anything to worry about when I walked into court. I was literally in and out of the courtroom in 10 or 15 minutes and most of those were waiting to be seen! I cannot say enough great things about her or her staff. Her staff was on the ball with answers to my questions and returning my phone calls and emails. I would recommend her to anyone and have done so to my family and friends who need an excellent attorney. I live 40 minutes away from her office with traffic and construction going on but would continue to make the drive because her services are worth it.

Excellent representation
Excellent representation during marathon negotiations. Her performance was appropriate, extremely professional, and always in my best interests. Restores my belief in our judicial system, and speaks well for her negotiating skills and persistence. I feel fortunate to having her represent me during the difficulties. Alan J

Bankruptcy Review
Susan explained everything in regards to my situation and how she would tend to it. Everything she stated that would happn, did happen. I couldnt have been more pleased with Susan and the outcome. I would highly recommend Susan with any issue.
Posted by Sharon | September 25, 2010
Very Satisfied
I first retained Susan in 2004, and, again in 2009 for bankruptcy. She worked diligently on my case, even finding her at her office late a night working hard. Susan always returned my calls, and, answered all my questions. This was a devastating experience for me, and, she alleviated my fears. She never let me down in anyway, she is honest, and, tells you like it is, not what you just want to hear. Her professionalism is beyond compare. I needed her assistance again recently, and, if needed in the future, she will be the lawyer of my choice. I highly recommend her.
