  • John Noah Kitta

    I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Meter is experienced and to the point on ERISA and employment benefit matters. Through a review of her answers to inquiries concerning employment related issues she exhibits a consistent high level of competency and has the ability to address difficult issues and provide responses that are understood and easily digestible. Her advisements are sound and always stand on all fours. In Southern California if you have employment benefit related problems, especially ERISA, do not hesitate to contact Susan L. Meter. Do not even consider someone without a high level of expertise. In the legal business ERISA issues are most troublesome and difficult. In summary, there are many rules and probably even more exceptions. Do not hesitate to look for Susan for advice in these areas.
