SOOO Wonderful!
Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with the actual legal services, which she went above and beyond with, she was so incredibly kind and patient and communicated everything so clearly. I couldn't have asked for anyone more perfect to help me. So appreciative to have had her help.

Legal & Tax/Small Business Acquisitions
as a small community-oriented investment fund, we engaged Suzanne to help us with the acquisition of a key local business. along the way we discovered we needed to make major adjustments to our tax & legal status. Suzanne guided us through on both counts... and has helped us with a number of knock-on issues. We'd recommend her without hesitation.

Above and Beyond Excellence
Suzanne is extremely personable, caring, selfless, attentive, always interested in the cause and takes to heart how her clients feel, and was ALWAYS there for any qualms that arose. I personally cannot say enough about how she and her practice helped me overcome a HUGE obstacle that came between me and my career as a musician and composer!

Great, reliable, well-informed, patient attorney!
Suzanne has been an invaluable resource in explaining what was best for our business and ultimately setting up our S Corporation. Her astute ability to guide us through the complexities of setting up our business, to protect our personal assets, liabilities and all the complicated intricacies involved has been priceless. We appreciate her calm patient, steadfast counsel, sense of humor and timely responses to our many questions, as well as her professionalism, and ongoing support through what is often a confusing and frustrating process. I can't recommend her enough.

Valued and efficient
As a busy family practice doctor I needed sound legal help with establishing a holistic medicine database online, my corporations, my independent contractors, employee handbook, and just knowing Suzanne was available if I needed her for a sound opinion. I have worked with her on a board and her input was very valuable. Good listener, insightful, accurate.

Responsive and thorough in forming corporation
Suzanne was recommended to us by our accountant when we wanted to form a professional corporation. She was very efficient in answering our questions about requirements for registering fictitious name, and made the process easy, affordable and understandable. She helped us understand the timing of our applications to get approval from the California Secretary of State and State Bar. Being attorneys ourselves and knowing how costly mistakes can be, we would never consider trying to incorporate ourselves and are glad we made the decision to work with Suzanne. Ann

corporation and family trust
I hired Ms. Rogers when I put my business into a corporation, made a will and created a family trust. She's been diligent about sending reminders of things that need to be kept up in order to stay compliant with the laws pertaining to these changes. I've been very pleased with the ease of contacting her, getting organized and concise answers, along with very easy to understand guidelines. I highly recommend her.

Great help with 501c3 filing
Suzanne helped my organization file our 501c3 documentation to transition a for-profit business into a 501c3 nonprofit. This was a very messy, drawn out process, involving several former owners who were at odds throughout. Suzanne's expertise and guidance helped us file an application with a minimum of difficulties, and, based on the application she prepared for us, we were ultimately granted status as a 501c3. From talking to colleagues who had been through similar experiences, I had been prepared for the worst; Suzanne made a very complicated process fairly straightforward, and she helped me understand my options as we moved through the application process. I was pleasantly surprised how well everything went, given how many moving pieces were involved and how daunting the prospects seemed at the start.

Thoughtful and responsive attorney - efficiently advised on employment agreement
I was extending my first employment offer and needed sound legal review/advice on a short deadline. Suzanne was thorough and thoughtful in her reading; turned around redlines quickly and her comments/edits made sound legal and business sense. Would definitely work with Suzanne again.
