An outstanding attorney who advocates for her clients from start to finish!
I am not sure that anyone can fully prepare themselves for a divorce. Having experienced a very complicated and challenging divorce, I know I wouldn't want anyone but Susan representing me. Susan is an experienced Family Law Attorney who not only navigated the legal system with ease, but also made sure that I had a complete understanding, as well. Throughout the entire process, her goal was to identify a resolution and settlement that both parties could agree upon in hopes of avoiding litigation and unnecessary expenses that neither of us could afford. Susan was always reliable. She was responsive to my phone calls and emails; providing detailed answers to my questions and offering reassurance I needed during stressful times. Susan always provided honest feedback. She gave me realistic expectations so that I knew just where I stood. Although this was one of the most difficult times of my life, Susan guided me through the process every step of the way. I am so grateful for what Susan did to help me and my children. She is truly an amazing attorney.

Excellent Representation
I hired Susan Saper Galamba to represent me in my divorce. I found her to be attentive and considerate throughout my case. Her depth of knowledge and years of experience was evident and valuable in my divorce. I strongly recommend Susan should you need legal representation! J.H

Excellent Lawyer for Tough Situations
Susan Galamba is a top-notch, efficient, and effective lawyer. I had been referred to Susan during a very tough time in my life. From my very first meeting with Susan, I was relieved that I had found someone intelligent, efficient, and at the same time, respectful of my vulnerability. Susan provided clear and well-defined advice and successfully navigated me through my challenging divorce process. As a mother herself, Susan understood and communicated to me the importance of keeping my son (who was only 5 at the time) out of the middle of things and helped me see how working with my son's father in a positive manner would ease the emotional challenge for my child. While divorce is never an easy process, Susan got me through it successfully, both financially and emotionally.
