  • Leigh Joy Carson

    I endorse this lawyer. Susan and I have known each other and had cases against each other for almost 25 years. Susan always knows the law and she is exceptionally prepared for every meeting with the Judge. She is a superb negotiator on behalf of her clients, being realistic while at the same time being firm in supporting her client’s position. Susan is one of the most organized attorneys that I know and that includes responding to phone calls, texts, e-mails and letters promptly and effectively. Her staff is always very friendly and helpful as well.
