Susan's client's say:
“Susan handled my dispute relating to my father’s will. Susan kept me informed at all stages of the legal process and was clear and forthright in her advice. In the end we prevailed and my father’s will was executed as per his wishes. I cannot recommend Susan enough. She is thoroughly professional and her word is her bond. That’s rare quality nowadays and I can’t express gratitude to Susan enough for her skill as well as compassion in drawing this matter to a close to my complete satisfaction. If I haven’t said it before now “Thank you so much Susan!”.
