Susan Marks is an excellent attorney. What she says is true and she can be trusted to do all that is possible. She knows the law and seeks the best for her clients. In addition to doing a great job, she is not one to “run up” the legal fees unnecessarily. She has been a great comfort in this challenging situation.

Susan helped me through one of the hardest things of my life–my divorce. She did a great job for me. Susan got me the things I wanted and she cared about doing a good job for me and my family.

I met Susan while attempting to represent myself in court. The judge told me I needed to hire an attorney, and there she was, searching for clients. After being in business as long as she has, I should have known something was wrong if she needed to hang out in the courtroom to gather clients. I met with Susan in her office, and she talked down to me and belittled me left and right. She kept saying that she knows best because she's the one with the law degree, but she wasn't listening to what I wanted. As the client, I should tell her what I'm trying to accomplish, and it's her job to attempt to make it happen in a legal context. At the end of our meeting, she said something along the lines of me wasting her time trying to get free legal advice without retaining her, and that I didn't want to spend what I needed to spend on her. It was very unprofessional and a surefire way for her to keep having to go back to the courtroom to find clients. In the end, I retained another attorney (who charged 150% the hourly rate that Ms Marks does, so as you can see, it wasn't that I didn't want to pay for quality representation). I'm glad I went in a different direction, as I won my case and worked with an attorney who spoke to me like I had some intelligence.
