I have worked with Susan for the better part of two decades. She is not only an exceptional advocate but also a true business partner when working on a legal matter. She analyzes the issue at hand and presents options in a way understandable to both legal and business leaders. She is well aware of the costs of legal representation and is always looking for ways to control them without sacrificing the quality of the work. And there are no surprises -- she keeps her clients informed of all the twists and turns that any legal matter can present.

Susan appeared in my courtroom many times when I was a trial judge. She always was prepared and an effective advocate in both her written submissions and oral arguments. After I left the bench, I presided over a private mediation where Susan represented one of the parties. She was a forceful and creative advocate while maintaining a realistic assessment of her case. At all times, Susan’s clients received the highest quality representation.

Susan has worked with me over many years including as my 50-50% trial partner in a difficult six-week trial. Susan is very bright, extremely hard working and has great trial skills. Most important, she can identify the key consequential issues to bring the matter to an expeditious and prompt resolution. I use her excellent services whenever I can. Susan is terrific.
