    Ms. White was a co-defendant representative attorney in a highly contentious case that I was involved in last year. She represented her client in a most exemplary manner, exhibiting very competent legal skills and knowledge of the law. Despite the contentions between the parties to the case, Ms. White never allowed such to interfere with her skills as a lawyer. Ms. White was able to separate the demands of representation from the day to day skills required for attorney respect.

    I have had an association with Susan White for approximately 10 years. Without question, Sue is swift to respond not only to me but to all agents within our system in a direct and personal manner. She is a thorough professional, someone you dream will be in your corner. Big bonus-her humor, and who doesn't need that from time to time. Recently, I've had a personal legal situation that she has tenaciously investigated for me, doing more than she had to. Highest praise
