At a time when I felt my life had been turned upside down, Susan’s calm, thoughtful and pragmatic approach to my situation gave me a sense of peace. She was thorough but efficient and worked hard to find a collaborative solution with the other side. When my case moved outside of her jurisdiction, she seamlessly transitioned the facts and nuances of my case to the new attorney.
