I cannot say enough good about this law firm.
I hired the law firm of Susan Millican O'Brian in August 2011 for a Third Party Custody Case of my grandsons after my son was stabbed. Susan will tell you in the beginning what your options are and will allow you to make the decisions based on this information and she explained what the outcome(s) could be.
Although the case was pretty simple in the beginning, it became a high profile, difficult case due to other parties filing a custody case against me and THEIR attorney kept dragging it out. But Susan and her staff were able to push back on the other party and in the end, we did prevail and won the case hands down.
Susan and her attorneys were very driven to stay with it and they guided me all along the way with the progress and what would happen during each step of the way. They communicated with me and we worked together as a great team. The entire office was involved in my case and all had a personalble desire to see it to the end.
I would very highly recommend this law firm of Susan Millican O'Brian any day and feel that she was very professional and has been willing to work with me all the way.

Susan is an extremely focused and driven individual whom is fair, honest and an absolute joy to work with. She and her team did a wonderful job under very difficult circumstances. If you want to be represented by someone who genuinely cares about you and your case, look no further!

Susan is an experienced, thorough professional in her field that also brings a heartfelt, compassion-based intangible that is rare, yet welcomed; particularly in divorce proceedings. Her counsel was usually spot on. I cannot recommend her more highly.
