Exceptional Experience
Suzanne is the best law attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, she explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. She always dedicates the time required and more to make ensure her clients receive the best possible defense and outcome in their cases. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney at a great price, then Suzanne is your one stop shop.

Hands down the best business lawyer, and best decision you will ever make for your business
I am very thankful to Suzanne for helping me out with my business. I have worked with no better lawyer than her. She was able to recoup $2,800 in lawyer fees from a previous lawyer I worked with and stepped in when they weren't doing their jobs. In addition, she ensured that I received as much as possible from the retainer paid out to the previous lawyer. Her response time is prompt, and she is very knowledgeable about her field. She is the best investment I have had done with my company. I trust her completely.

Terrific experience
Ms. Natbony did a terrific job helping me resolve a dispute over a breach of contract. I actually collected more than I had originally hoped to... and she made the whole process as painless as possible. She resolved the entire matter quickly. I cannot recommend highly enough, especially in the field of dispute resolution.

Great Experience
Suzanne went over and beyond her necessary responsibilities to help me with my case and I'm grateful for her services. She cares greatly about each client and goes great lengths to make sure her clients are well-serviced. She walked me through every step of the process and she looked at my case from many angles to make certain that we weren't missing anything. She has a lot of resources in the industry--one being her many contacts which we were able to utilize during my case. Her expertise in the industry, her emphasis on detail to the customer service experience, and her extensive relationships in law sets her apart in the industry and helped my case tremendously.

Amazingly Detail Oriented and Extraordinary Service
We (husband and wife), are business owner/operators and consultants in the mental health services and drug rehab industry, and are very grateful for Suzanne. We have had a vast array of legal issues that we reached out to Suzanne about and each she handled in a very impressive manner. She helped us deal with a business partner dispute by assisting with exiting those business ventures. She also provided counsel and referrals on a real estate litigation matter we were going through. Then she exceeded our expectations with negotiating a consulting agreement, so that we didn’t get stiffed on the fees, since we had already began the work. We actually donated the fees to a charitable purpose of patient care for the needy. She is prompt in her work, caring and has exceeded our expectations in terms of the cost of the legal bill and achieving results. We will continue to work with Suzanne for all of our business needs and recommend highly recommend her!

Business Compliance Issues
Although I am an attorney in NM, I needed a California lawyer to assist with some CA business compliance issues for my side business. Suzanne had great reviews, so I contacted her. She expediently completed what I needed done within the retainer and promptly refunded the remainder upon completion. She also discounted her rates for me. I recommend her for your business counsel needs.

Very Knowledgeable and Passionate about Business Law
I contacted and spoke with Suzanne Natbony regarding a possible project involving the drafting of an API licensing agreement and Website Terms of Use / Privacy Policy updates. She had conducted some preliminary research about our company and was very prepared for our meeting. In addition, she was very generous with her time and her advice.

Amazing Attorney!!
I love Suzanne! Suzanne has been an incredible blessing in my life. She is a wonderful lawyer and beautiful person inside and out. She is extremely helpful, resourceful and knowledgable in her field of expertise. She is professional and exceeds every single great review that I read before contacting her. She is prompt to return calls and emails and treats her clients with respect and care. She goes above and beyond for her clients and it shows! One thing that really stands out to me about Suzanne is that she truly cares about her clients as people, rather than seeing them as a source of revenue. She has always been extremely ethical in all of her dealings and mindful of my budget. I know that I can trust Suzanne, without a doubt! She is a great lawyer and has become such an integral part of my life. I appreciate you, Suzanne. Thank you for all of your help! You are making such a difference in this world, more than you know. Your kindness and positive attitude throughout the entire process of starting my business made the experience an enjoyable one for me. Thank you for continuously providing me with insightful and necessary business knowledge to ensure my success. Your advice and guidance have been a constant! I look forward to our continued partnership.

So caring and helpful and detail oriented!!
I contacted Suzanne after being in a particular situation and wanted to know my rights. Suzanne and I discussed the issues st length and she tried to help me come up with some options and a game plan on how to deal with the people involved. When it came time to me needing to hire a lawyer, her case load was full, so she referred me to a very caring specialty lawyer, one of her friend's dads, so he had a lot of experience and was also very knowledgeable about this area of legal issues and took my case. Suzanne was very sensitive and caring about helping me from A to Z, which is important when working with a lawyer. I am glad that I didn't have to waste a lot of time finding a lawyer and the first one she referred me to took my case! Any time I wanted to talk to Suzanne at any step of the case, she was there for me. I’m so thankful!

Amazing Attorney!
love Suzanne Natbony! She is very professional, resourceful and cares about her clients. I did some research before deciding to work with her and was very impressed that she is well-known and liked by my community. I really appreciate that she promptly returns calls and knows what she is talking about. Other lawyers that I have dealt with are hard to get in touch with. Having a responsive and knowledgeable attorney is very important to me. She helped with setting up corporations, corporate contracts, intellectual property and real estate matters.

Suzanne got our defamatory Yelp review down!
Suzanne was so knowledgeable and communicative! We hired her to help us with a defamatory Yelp review. She helped us put together a plan and reached out to the person who left the defamatory review. Her calm and professional demeanor was key to our success. We were preparing to escalate the situation to a firm cease and desist letter, but Suzanne was able to finally get the defamer to delete the post at the eleventh hour. We were beyond happy. We had such a great experience we are going to use her when we redo our website as she also assists with website development contracts, website language, including HIPAA privacy terms and advise about labor and employment law issues.

Above and beyond the call of duty
Suzanne is the best legal advisor and detective! I suspected my boyfriend of cheating and contacted Suzanne about my rights to a multi-unit income property that we purchased together and other large purchases that we had made together. I also wanted to go on a social media posting spree to warn other girls about him being a liar and cheater. Suzanne persuaded me to hold off until she conducted an investigation. She was able to find properties owned by him, figure out “meta-data” which is document properties when he would lie about work documents, trace his emails to their location of where he sent them from (which was not the country that he told me he was visiting and we even got the hotel he sent it from!), gave me tips on how to hijack information on his phone (without invading his privacy or doing anything illegal) and figure out which flight he was on when he claimed he was coming back from a trip alone (which he wasn’t alone!). Suzanne was my guardian angel and came with me to the airport to catch him! I could not believe that she had figured out which flight, even though he had lied about what time he was landing because he had another girl with him!! It was so crazy, but Suzanne kept me calm and asked pointed questions without allowing him to manipulate the situation. I was able to settle my claims with him more favorably due to the investigative work that Suzanne had done! There’s therapy for the emotional (right side of the brain) and advice and coaching for the left-brain, and Suzanne walked me through the steps to handle the situation with composure. I can’t thank her enough!

Quick Response
Suzanne responded to my inquiry promptly and referred me to a trusted colleague who offered me great legal advice in my area of concern. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of getting legal advice quickly.

Thanks Suzanne! The best startup lawyer in LA!
Suzanne helped me settle a business breach of contract case within 3 weeks by helping me bring counterclaims. She is also a founder of a legal website called LawTake, with a settlement agreement that we used, and it cost only $100. Then she revamped our business contracts to be more protective, so that I would have less likelihood of a lawsuit in the future.

A savior!
Suzanne is amazing. I was at a low point in my life and she helped me see the light. I needed help with several legal matters, including, in employment law, medical malpractice, criminal defense, and a consumer dispute. She referred me to some really great lawyers who all helped me assess my case and most didn’t charge me. Suzanne represented me specifically with helping me avoid business disputes and keep me from getting in trouble with possible defamation. I am really grateful!

Professional & Kind
I reached out to Suzanne when I needed some contractual agreements drawn up as I was exiting a business partnership. I think with any separation, it gets stressful, especially dealing with the legalities of the split. I was beyond grateful to have Suzanne in my corner. I was definitely NOT knowledgeable about contracts, 'legalese', or the 'norms' of a business separation. Suzanne was able to explain things to me in a way I could understand, which made all the difference in my stress level. I had consulted a lawyer previous to her who didn’t seem to know how to handle the situation and wasn’t responsive and am thankful that Suzanne was able to help on short notice and very responsive. Her father is also a practicing lawyer and explained a few things to us about tax implications and loans, which assisted in a smoother transition.

As a top plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, protecting my patients’ confidentiality under HIPAA laws is an important concern as providing first class medical treatments. Suzanne Natbony is a top Los Angeles healthcare lawyer and assisted with revising some contracts with me as the laws are constantly changing. She advised me on corporate issues as well, as I have multiple practice locations. The contracts that she assisted with were great and I appreciated her discounted rate for contract-review and the complimentary research she provided. I recommend you contact her for your healthcare regulatory and transactional needs.

Great attorney!
Suzanne was immensely helpful! I am a real estate investor and Suzanne assisted me with a legal letter that I was sending to the City of L.A.'s housing department. She helped me negotiate to protect my rights. She advised me on my rights when dealing with their mandatory inspection process. I recommend her for her knowledge and skillset at solving problems and operating efficiently.
