Much more than an attorney - she was fantastic through the toughest event in my life
Susan and I met quite a while ago. And while that hints at the arduous process my divorce became, she was there, helping me understand, guiding me through the legal process, but also bringing experience to bear in relationships and breakups. Its a tough time regardless, particularly when the behavior of your former spouse is hard to interpret. Susan was there. Constant consideration not just of the divorce, but of future ongoing relationships, what it take to get this behind you, but not at the cost of your dignity, fatherhood, or an untenable financial situation. Susan is always thinking a few steps ahead. When nothing seems to make sense in an ambiguous and emotionally driven world, Susan provides clarity, reason, and calm. Oh and she is sharp as hell on settlements and getting a deal that works. Works for both parties, I should say.
While my case ended up at trial and that was the last resort anyone wanted to pursue, I knew exactly what was going on, why trial was the solution, and have no regrets every step of the way. Things became more complex than anyone expected or wanted. But I knew why these steps were being taken, and felt comfort and pride in that, which is weird to say given the circumstance.
We had a great rapport from the beginning, she was a friend and confidant beyond my attorney. She showed passion, was conscientious of what I was going through, and patient. We ended up in court because we wanted to, given the circumstances dealt. I regret none of it, even if I never anticipated that.
The outcome was better than I hoped for. I received more than I asked, and I could not be happier. We went through the process. Susan did things the right way. I never felt ill prepared nor did I worry that what actions opposing counsel might pursue, because we were organized and thoughtful every step. Susan was and is tremendous.
She's my trusted legal advisor, but she's also a friend who believed in me. Words can't describe what Susan did for me, my kids, and my family. I'd recommend her to anyone.
