Help in time of need
Susan M. Murphy was perfectly aligned during our dealings which helped facilitate the best course of action for my reticular case. Every time we spoke, she naturally directed the conversation towards topics that would be of best benefit for myself. Highly recommend.

Thank you so Much Susan
I had an existing Quiet Title case that was filed by my attorney that relocated to another State and I was forced in finding a qualified Law Firm that was knowledgeable in real estate law, and more specifically Quit Title actions. I searched for days, talking to many attorneys that would take on my case, but wanted a ridiculous amount of money to get me a final judgment. I came across the Gomez Law Firm, consulted with attorney Susan Murphy, who answered all my questions, and more importantly, Quiet Title actions is an area of law that she specializes in, and the firm’s rates were within my budget. Susan and her entire staff filed all the necessary documentation, provided me with case updates, and were always available if I had any questions. I can honestly admit the day of my hearing I was a bit nervous. I was introduced to attorney Joseph Castro who prepared me on what was going to happen. The process was extremely easy, and attorney Castro was extremely professional and got the job done. I received my final judgment and finally my homes title is clear all due to the amazing people at Gomez Law. I highly recommend Gomez Law for anybody looking for real estate issues that requires a firm that knows what they’re doing and can work within your budget.

The Closer
Susan Murphy has handled many legal matters for me and has always achieved the outcome I was looking for. She was very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. I not only recommend Susan, but I guarantee once you have used her service you too will look no further. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. She is a closer. JG

Helpful Straightforward Advice
We had a 30-minute complimentary consultation with Susan. Just as others have stated here, she was generous with her time and advice on our challenging situation with the "sleepy" 2nd mortgage on our house. She gave us helpful advice and encouraged us to proceed on our own. We appreciate her time, encouragement, and honest evaluation of our situation.

Susan is extraordinary
There are few attorney's in Los Angles that have Susan's level of expertise with foreclosure law. The title to my home was forged and it led to complicated legal matters. Susan has knowledge that is not widely held.

Excellent Attorney
Susan Murphy helped guide us through a really messy and complicated situation. One thing that stood out for me is that she was empathetic to our situation (and even a little mad). She really was a champion for us. Susan Murphy is an excellent attorney. She is responsive to phone calls and emails. She is an expert and she is brilliant and tough - she got right to telling us the hard truths we needed to hear. I am very impressed with her skills and would definitely want her on our team if the need arises again.

Problem Solved with a Phone Call!
Spoke with Susan recently regarding a mortgage company doing their best to foreclose on my home. After working with the bank for nearly a year and countless delays on their part, (all designed to stack fees, costs and expenses) Susan helped me solve the issue in a matter of minutes! She is a direct, no BS attorney who gets right to the point. It took her about 10 minutes during our call to help me get on track. Highly recommend Susan for any legal stuff you may have! Thank you Susan!!!

Prompt and knowledgeable
Ms. Murphy provided me with valuable insight on the games mortgage servicers play when a loan is being transferred. Needless to say, my eyes are now open to these tactics that can force people into default and foreclosure. I’m thankful for smart and good-hearted people like Ms. Murphy exist.

You cannot find better representation
I came into contact with Miss Susan Murphy as I was desperately searching for legal help with regards to a foreclosure matter. Keep in mind that the world of legal help for foreclosure is full of thieves and those who are skilled and organize to take advantage of people wait limited options. I find Susan on the Internet and call her for assistance. When I describe the circumstances of my case she asked me Direct questions to develop a better picture of my situation and spent close to an hour to educate me regarding options available to me. To make a long story short she felt that placing a lawsuit against the mortgage company is not a viable options for my case. She took time to introduce other options such as filing bankruptcy. Susan put me in contact with the attorney who is the specialized in bankruptcy options. I had subsequent conversations with her and she graciously accepted my calls and was very patient in answering al of my questions or concerns Furthermore she Made her self available for future consultations free of charge. I'm very grateful for her honesty, integrity and humanity she has demonstrated Throughout my contact with her. She was very candid in describing my options. I would strongly recommend her to any person that is in this type of circumstances and is looking for an honest and truthful legal assistance. You cannot have better representation
