I hired Evan to handle my recent divorce from my husband of 5 years. The process was emotionally draining, but it definitely helped to have an attorney like Evan to help me. He was always available by email and phone, he was a pleasure to work during the entire process, and his fees were reasonable. I recommend him for anyone going through a divorce.

I recently hired Mr. Sussman to help me through my very difficult divorce. He is experienced and very knowledgeable, especially in the areas of child custody and spousal support. I felt confident knowing that he was handling my case, which made the entire situation a bit easier to deal with.

The main problem is the Family Legal System in Ca. is broken and needs a complete overhaul. It is greedy, biased and incompetent--this kind of attorney unfortunately, is part of the big problem in the system.
His staff was slow, said they good handle a tragic move away case (should be banned)--they did not have a clue what they were doing and led us to believe they could. The court appearances were very lame-which hurt. And they reccomended a corrupt evaluator to the case. He is one of three attorneys with different organizations that destroyed a childs future...If they did it once, they will do it again. He new what the situation was and said is firm could handle it. NOT. Plus they were all very arrogant.
