STRAIGHT FORWARD, COMPASSIONATE AND CONCERNED ABOUT THE CHILDREN IN MY CASES. FAMILY LAW SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT "WINNING," BUT SHOULD BE ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT EVERYONE'S NEEDS ARE MET.

Caring and assertive advocate for those facing family law issues.  Our team is committed to helping clients receive excellent representation while remaining cost effective.  We take great pride in the fact that a majority of our clients are a result of referrals from prior clients.  We are efficient, organized and result oriented. 

 

Navigating family law cases involving children is often very emotional for clients.  We believe that it is important to remember that children are not objects and should be free to love both parents even when the parents no longer choose to be together.  “Winning” at the children’s expense is never a real “win”.

 

 

Suzettte comes from a large and diverse family.  She is the mother of two adult sons.  She loves playing softball, camping, skiing, riding rollar coasters and spending time with her family and friends.  She also loves hiking and has hiked the Grand Canyon on a number of occasions.  She loves talking friends and family into joining her on her hiking adventures.

Knowledgeable & Reasonable
Suzette and her staff are amazing! Her knowledge and advice was extremely helpful in bringing clarity during such a challenging time in my life. Alaine was quick to respond to questions & Suzette helped me understand what my options were. I always walked away feeling empowered and stronger. I highly recommend this amazing team!

Knows what she is doing.
Suzette is very knowledgeable about family law and has a very balanced approach. She is very sharp and quite intuitive at getting a read for people. She looks at what is best for the child, which is what family law is all about. She will share her non-biased point of view with you, even if you might not like what she has to say. That is not to say she will dismiss valid concerns you have. She just knows what issues are serious enough to be brought before the court and what needs to be handled between the parties. If that can't be accomplished, she definitely fights hard for your child or children, in and out of court, and that's what matters most. She is also very fair when it comes to your cost. She is straight-forward-to-the-point and will not waste your time or money. She will listen and guide you on what you yourself have to do. She is always available for a phone consultation for any questions or legal advice you might need, but remember as a parent you are ultimately the one responsible for your child, so you must be proactive in addressing concerns. On top of that her staff is very knowledgeable and pleasant as well. They have worked with each other for quite some years. That lets me know that she is not just great at being an attorney, but also being a boss. To me it's those little things that can tell you so much. My families' personal experience was a rough, painful situation and having her there for us was a godsend. We can't thank her and her staff enough.

Get-R-Done Attorney
I hired Suzette after dismissing my last attorney. I will say my last attorney was good and used him for years. However, when you hire Suzette Belle Lorrey-Wiggs, you better buckle up and hold on. She is incredible when it comes to being prepared, being ahead, being to the point, and getting things done. She not only rocked the courtroom she owned the courtroom. It is easy to tell that in the first 2 minutes of our court hearing, she was the attorney that was in charge, extremely organized, and on point. She never let up and never backed down no matter what was thrown at her. If you throw her a curveball she can catch it blindfolded and throw it back 10 times harder. She is extremely intelligent and beyond. I highly recommend her, my only regret is I should have had hired her years ago. Her legal team is just as sharp and quick to take care of any questions and all issues, in an extremely timely manner. My last attorney although good at what he does, would not even be able to keep up with her staff. Suzette Belle Lorrey-Wiggs Is the one you want if you want to win. She is now and always will be my attorney.

Great lawyer and had a very good outcome
Suzette is a tough go getter who I felt really cared about me and my case. The outcome was exactly what I wanted and I'm thankful for everything her and her team accomplished for me. Also, Alaine was so very helpful and sweet I highly recommend them for any family court issues you may have!

Great firm if you need help with a family law case.
Suzette has been helping me with my custody case, and I don’t think I could be more happy with my decision to switch attorneys. I made an appointment with her to go over my case when I just weren’t happy with the attorney I started with, and I’ve been glad I switched ever since. We spoke in great detail about my case, something me and my first attorney never really did, and I were impressed she had already done her due diligence and looked up my case a bit before I got there. She is very experienced with family law and trial proceedings. She’s much more affordable than other attorneys I’ve spoken with, and she doesn’t do unnecessary filings and paperwork to charge you. If you’re thinking you need a lawyer or a new lawyer, I would highly recommend making an appointment and speaking with her.

THANKFUL!!
I am so thankful for Suzette and her team!! From the first call to the end of my litigation Suzette and her team were exceptionally informative, professional, heart felt, open honest and straight to the point with full transparency and no games being played. I have never been in a custody legal situation in my life and had limited knowledge on what to expect. I was never left in the dark and was very impressed with the fluidity of communication and professional guidance I received from the beginning to the end of my case. I am forever indebted and thankful to Suzette and her team !!

Worth every penny!
Suzette and her team (Linda and Alaine) are truly the best! I chose Suzette because a buddy I work with also used her and had nothing but great things to say. I was dealing with a child support modification, and the outcome was wonderful. They worked extremely hard to get all of their ducks in a row, and the day of trial Suzette simply delivered! The organization, preparation and professionalism was light years above the opposing attorney. Suzette does not sugarcoat anything, however, she will always be truthful and honest with you! Hiring Suzette and her team was the greatest decision I ever made!

Suzette is phenomenal! She is straight to the point, no BS. Suzette will fight for you and is extremely fair. My ex hates me to the core and just wants me to pay child support but see our kids less. However, Suzette made sure that did not happen and now I see my kids even more! I cannot be any happier! Alaine and Linda are also great assets to her team. They communicate well and I am always in the loop. I would definitely and highly recommend Suzette’s law firm to anyone!

Excellent family lawyer
I had a great experience with Suzette and her team when she took over my divorce case that I gave her my full trust from day one. Thank you so very much for your help!! It wasn’t an easy case but through it I was fully supported by her understanding and knowledge, of the family law and her experience in dealing with all of the details in which I felt at ease going through the legal process. The case outcome was excellent and all of my concerns were addressed promptly and accurately throughout the case. I highly recommend Suzette and her team to take care of your family legal concerns in an excellent way Thank you again!!!

Best Decision
Suzette is fantastic! She really listens and cares about her clients. Suzette is an intelligent and professional lawyer who knows what she’s doing. My case ended up in court and that is where she really shines. Don’t get me wrong she is great leading up to it as well, but should you go to court I would rest assured that she will do everything in her power to help you. This is a person who is doing what she should be in life. She pays attention to details and asks clarifying questions. An added bonus is her kind and courteous staff who are available to help. I am waiting to hear what the judge says but I know without a doubt Suzette did everything in her power to do right by my child. Regardless of what the judge says I know we tried our absolute best. Suzette is straightforward and no nonsense. This is my second time hiring a lawyer in this matter and she did not nickel and dime me. She is affordable and worth every dollar in my opinion. I am confident that I hired the best and I highly recommend Suzette Lorey-Wiggs for custody matters.

Highly Recommend
Going through divorce and child custody was one of the most trying times of my life. Suzette made the whole process as stress free as possible. She was patient, professional and genuinely concerned for me. Her prompt communication and attention to every detail was so assuring. Although I didn’t know Suzette prior to the divorce, it was like having a friend help me through the most difficult time of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better or stronger advocate. Thank You Suzette for going above and beyond. Forever Grateful, Johanna

Supportive, knowledgeable and thorough
Suzette has been been such a strong advocate for me and for my family. I truly could not have gone through this process without her knowledge, legal expertise, and advice. She was able to explain the legal processes in a way that I could clearly understand and also provide me with ways to mediate my scenario. She is thorough and has close attention to detail. Suzette, I appreciate you very much. Blessings.

Amazing Lawyer!
Suzette is amazing, fair, honest, and great to have in your court (literally!). One thing I appreciate most about her is that she is interested in resolving the issue, not just accumulating billable hours. She's extremely knowledgable with a lot of experience and gives good, fair, honest advice you can feel good about.

Amazing!
She has been my attorney for more than 2 years and have helped me so much! She helped me get more custody with my kids and for the kids father to pay child support. She (and her amazing staff) are quick to respond and very friendly. Suzette is very direct and doesn’t play around or give you false hope. She is also more affordable than other attorneys I have used. I strongly recommend her!
