I came to the Law Offices of Susan Millican O’Brian and Associates, P.S. with an extremely difficult parenting action that needed some major changes. I knew going into this process that the odds were against me, although, I had confidence that if anyone could succeed and persuade a Commissioner/Judge to listen to my position, it would be this team. They are very thorough in their research and they whole heartedly believe in what they do. Because I have a disabling disease, I was limited on how much foot work I was able to do. Therefore, I needed to hire someone I trusted 100% to take my case and the facts I presented them and trust that they would be able to research it thoroughly and pull together a winning argument. The result of their hard work was very favorable for my daughter and I. When I explained to my daughter what the changes in our life would be – the look on her face was priceless, her whole face lit up and she was grinning from ear to ear. In fact, her school counselor even commented on how confident she is with this change. I recently hired them to work on an adjustment of child support for me and one of their attorneys, Jeff M. Gregory, was able to get me over 4 times the amount of child support I had been receiving for 7 years. I am so thankful to this team and the changes they were able to make for my life and my family. Everyone associated with this office has always gone above and beyond what I expected. If I had a question there was always someone who knew about my case and was able to get the answer I needed. They treated me with respect and were honest from day one exceeded my all my expectations. I would highly recommend Susan's office to everyone.

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.
