I had an unresponsive worker's comp attorney, and it was a nightmare. I switched to Susan Borg's office mid-case, and she was fabulous. I have used her twice now, for 2 very serious injuries.
Susan and her staff have been responsive to my needs in a timely manner. When difficult, stressful issues have come up with the insurance adjusters, Susan and staff have been on top of everything, getting the insurance companies to comply. She has felt like a personal advocate for my cases, with me all the way. The settlement processes went smoothly, with a satisfactory outcome.
Susan knows her stuff. She has decades of experience, and is well known for fighting for injured worker's rights. When you have been injured at work, then cannot work, are in pain, needing surgery, etc., your world has been turned upside down, and you can be left feeling very vulnerable and overwhelmed. That's how I felt. Susan Borg made me feel like she really had my back. And she did. The confusing mazes of the worker's comp system were in her competent hands, and I didn't have to worry about it. Which allowed me to focus on healing while Susan dealt with the adjusters.
Susan Borg has been, and is still, my attorney, for about 15 years now. She is an entirely competent, knowledgeable, responsive, caring attorney who will work hard for your case.

I placed my trust in Ms. Borg after being injured for the third time in the same workplace and I was provided with a fair and very decent settlement thanks to her handling of my case. Ms. Borg has valuable experience I believe, due to her dedication to Workers Comp law which is always subject to change. I absolutely recommend that any injured worker seek professional representation. Ms. Borg is absolutely well qualified because she simply "knows her stuff." If you have never retained a lawyer before, you need to know that it is important to be completely honest with your attorney and if you don't get a call back or the information you seek, call back! Ask questions until you understand! Workers Comp lawyers handle tons of cases and they are busy people. I often had questions and concerns about my rights, procedures, benefits, etc. after being injured in the workplace and my phone calls and emails were consistently answered or addressed. In addition, I would like to add that Ms. Borg and her staff are easy to communicate with and know the kinds of issues injured workers have! I was always treated with respect, kindness, and in the end, a very satisfactory outcome. I give Susan Borg and her firm 2 big thumbs up and a whole lot of my personal gratitude for all the positive work they did in my behalf.

I endorse this lawyer. Sue and I started in this business at the same firm over 20 years ago. Whenever I need a second opinion or just some sound advice I call Sue. She really cares about her clients and works works harder than anyone I know.
