    Susan Nugent freed my children from a ten year reign of terror by my ex-husband. She identified the psychological issues which caused my ex-husband to view my children as property and to desire control of my post divorce life. Her strategy and execution produced an order of sole custody. My children’s college educations are secure and they will receive therapy to undo the damage done by years of aggressive controlling behavior by my ex-husband and the apathetic and cold behavior of his new wife.

    I was extremely impressed with the amount of time Attorney Nugent devoted to me and my case. She took the time to get to know me well. She helped me to have reasonable expectations in the goals we set for the outcome of the case. She was extremely talented at negotiating with my husband's attorney because she was always fully prepared to litigate the issue, if necessary. I was always prepared in advance for each event. I loved her style and approach. She was practical and effective.

    Susan claims to be and honorable attorney with ties to Gerry Spence, however, I found her demeanor haughty and money focused. Waited around at court while she kowtowed to her other clients. The judge even scolded her for not being prepared. Cost me a lot of money without the results.
