Susanne is a dedicated, hardworking, and devoted advocate for her Family Law clients. She not only seeks to work to the best agreement in often difficult situations, but does so with candor, wit, and compassion. The first time I met Susanne was at our initial consult, and she laid out in detail how she would proceed, what she expected of me, and also was not shy to let me know that she’d fire me as a client if I acted like a jerk during the time she represented me. Her reasons were pragmatic, and true: If I didn’t conduct myself like a gentleman, it would make the situation worse, make her job more difficult, and would certainly result in me not achieving the goals I wanted. I took her at her word, did my best to be reasonable person through all the twists and turns that a divorce throws at you. She did what she laid out in that first meeting, and more. She was able to negotiate a settlement that accomplished all that I wanted and survives to the present uncontested and led to peace.

I would like to acknowledge Susanne for handling my case with such professionalism. Susanne made me feel like I was her only client and guided me throughout every process until my case was resolved. Words cannot express how grateful I am. I would recommend any of my friends or family to Susanne for her outstanding professional advice.

My wife’s estate was complicated and you handled it in a very thorough manner which was very gratifying, just getting  the Real Estate end of the estate was challenge enough. Again much appreciate your efforts.
