A lawyer who makes you feel comfortable!
“Susan helped my grandfather with his will & estate. We had several meetings with three generations of our family at the table, each time Susan answered all of our questions, provided a view on pros and cons and drafted several options so our family could confidently make a decision.

I would highly recommend her!” Read More
