Recommend Susanna Pullen for Child Custody and Divorce Attorney
I highly recommend Drury Pullen a Professional Law Corporation for family law representation. My child custody and divorce case spanned over a year given its complexity. At the beginning, I had the opportunity to work briefly with Jennifer Drury but later I extensively worked with Susanna Pullen. Both attorneys were responsive, compassionate and professional.
Susanna is proficient in many areas as an attorney but the areas I was most impressed with as a client were Susanna’s ability to: 1) assimilate information quickly and respond effectively, 2) write a clear and convincing brief, and 3) prepare and craft questions for witnesses.
Susanna demonstrated over and over her keen ability to respond quickly and effectively under pressure at court hearings and at trial. Susanna’s ability to absorb new information and assimilate it with old information was very impressive. For example, during a trial lunch break, Susanna quickly processed newly submitted doctor’s notes and evaluations. Susanna came back to court and was able to use the information to ask discerning questions of subsequent witnesses and to integrate the new information into her summation.
From the beginning, Susanna’s extensive knowledge of family law was clearly reflected within the briefs she submitted to the court. Her briefs were well written and conveyed strong convincing arguments for the outcomes we were seeking. Susanna took care to accurately reference and cite important points as the case progressed.
Susanna was also outstanding at thinking on her feet in the court room during the cross examination of witnesses. Before trial, Susanna took the time to understand who the witnesses were and what they might testify. Susanna’s preparation laid a solid foundation for the thoughtful questions she asked witnesses. Susanna however was not constrained by the questions she prepared. Susanna actively listened to the answers of witnesses and in multiple instances she asked important follow-up questions in response to what witnesses had just testified.
Throughout the year-long process, Susanna didn’t promise any specific court outcome. Instead, Susanna provided honest, upfront, and realistic feedback throughout the ongoing child custody and divorce process so that I was able to manage my expectations appropriately. The child custody and divorce process was arduous and required my active collaboration and participation. I really appreciated Susanna Pullen’s expertise and I highly recommend her as a family law attorney.
Helpful, Good Listener, Flexible, Reasonable
Susanna was positive and helpful. We were perhaps a particularly easy transaction. Nonetheless, she and her team were very careful to not spend hours (i.e. my money) frivolously. I have recommended her to a number of my friends already.
Clear and Fair result after a much avoided final resolution due to complex financials and high emotions.
Very personal and professional, Susanna listens well and was able to craft my personal concerns into a case which ultimately included both the hard facts and the less tangible concerns. Always reminding me what the law provides for, she necessarily tempered expectations and steadied fear of the unknown, She is always pleasant and supportive without being gushy or behaving like a therapist. She provides excellent counsel and ultimately excellent representation. I highly recommend her if you need an excellent family attorney.
I would never look elsewhere
Susanna Pullen is truly one in a million. Her heart and mind are in the right place backed by an incredible professional drive to get the best outcome. Susanna is much more then a wonderful attorney, she is a fantastic person. I had a very difficult case … But as difficult as the legal system can be I wouldn’t ever want anyone else to guide me through it.
