My husband decided to end our marriage after 34 years together. We had a business together and many assets, but he had run everything and I was in the dark on our finances. I am so lucky I found Susan to help me. She stood by me and worked so hard to find all the property and assets which the judge needed to know about. We went to trial in our case and Susan submitted writings that were very convincing to the judge. She was so pursuasive as she presented my case. I ended up with a great result even though I did not want a divorce and I would highly recommend Susan Butler to any one who needs a great and caring lawyer for their divorce.

I recently used Susan for some custody changes. She was timely with responses and filings, had reasonable fees, and her experience was obvious. She advised me of expected reasonable outcomes and was willing to push for items important to me. I would absolutely recommend her and use her again in the future.

I hired Susan to be my counsel when i bought a house that was for sale by owner. The work put in by her and her staff greatly streamlined the closing process. Everything was squared away and in order and we were in and out in no time! I definitely recommend her!

I have worked with Susan for five years and she is one of my law partners. Susan is truly special. She dedicates the utmost attention to her clients and her passion for the law is contagious. Susan is well spoken and persuasive in court, where her experience and expertise shine. What sets Susan apart from other experienced attorneys, however, is that she has not lost her compassion for people going through some of the most difficult times of their lives. I highly endorse Susan.
