Giving clients clarity and direction is what Susannah enjoys about family law, guiding them through the most difficult moments of their life while helping them focus on the issues rather than the emotions. Compassionate by nature, Susannah shares the joy with her clients when a matter is settled, finding it heartening that they can close one chapter and move forward with their lives.
