Five Star Attorney Tammy Hussin!!
This is my first time hiring an Attorney. The media and entertainment industry stereotype Attorney's generally in a bad light. When I hired and first spoke with Tammy Hussin, I knew almost instantly by her tone that she was a real Pro...and she was going succeed. Tammy is on fire! Great work ethic and extremely gifted with the use of literature, she thoroughly explained everything she discussed with the Telemarketers attorney. Personally, if I was a lawyer, I would hate too find myself going head to head with Tammy. To say she is a real go getter doesn't give her justice. She asserts herself in a manner that communicates strength, truth and virtue. But what really impressed me is Tammy's humanity. She has truck loads of empathy and sympathy for me. And also after a time it was obvious to me that Tammy was incredibly versed in Law. She really knows her stuff. The other side had no hope of pulling the wool over her eyes. The case settled very quickly even the opposing side made it very clear that they didn't want to go down without a fight. Tammy carefully and patiently explained everything to me in a language I could clearly understand. I tend to be a worrisome nervous wreck and Tammy was always kind and compassionate. I highly recommend Tammy Hussin. Ihave nothing but extremely positive things to say about her performance, her ethics and her intelligence. She's very smart! I feel very fortunate and blessed that she was to be my attorney.

Cyber crime /Consumer protection attorney
Tammy is very professional and very knowledgeable in Consumer protection laws. She listened to my case in minute detail and suggested a path /strategy for fighting against the crypto giant to get my stolen money back from them. She has helped Cyber crime victims like me get their well deserved money back to them.

Very kind and helpful
I have never called an attorney for help before. It’s intimidating. But Tammy change my mind on all that. She was very helpful and kind. I was dealing with a collection agent for the first time and they were telling me things that didn’t quite add up. Tammy put me on the right track on how to deal with the situation and put my mind at ease. If I ever have to deal with this sort of issue again she will be the first I will go to for help and I confidently will recommend her to anyone who asks.

I Highly Reccomend Attorney Tammy Gruder Hussin
I am extremely happy with the services of Attorney Tammy Gruder Hussin. I was in search of a good consumer attorney and found Tammy's info on the Cornell website. We spoke about my needs regarding telemarketing laws and guidelines and Tammy was direct with regards her expertise on he subject matter. We then came to an agreement of services, price and time table and Tammy came through on every point. I found Tammy's work and opinion to be enlightening and she helped me a great deal with my legal matter.

Incredible Attorney
Atty Hussin reached out to me about my case and was able to get me a settlement 6 months later. She was easy to work with, professional, and followed through on exactly what she initially told me she could do for me. Best lawyer I've ever worked with. She put the time, money, and work in even though a settlement wasn't guaranteed.

Tammy Hussin saves me.
I Bought a new car February of last year. My first problem was when the computer indicated I had trouble with my transmission. At this point I had only 2000 miles on the car.. I took it to the dealer and they told me there was a glitch in the computer and that everything was OK. At 4000 miles in 107° temperature the car stopped. Automobile club could not tow it and I was blocking their valet lane. I did not know what to do. I took it to another dealer and they said it was a defective battery. And that everything was OK. 4000 miles later It stopped again. My walker and food were in the trunk and I couldn’t open it, nor get it to move; plus, I was leaving the next morning for a cruise. I went online and requested a lawyer to help me Tammy called me and worked miracles. Everyone was surprised that she got them to buy the car back. Thanks to Tammy I got my car back and I am no longer afraid to drive.
