“Suzanne got to the crux of the dispute quickly. She was able to mediate with a particularly adversarial opponent to achieve a resolution the client was happy with. The only way to describe Suzanne is cool, calm and collected. She is patient and methodical. I hope I get to work with her again in the future!”
