To be clear, sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination. Sexual harassment isn’t about sex – it’s about power. Harassers behave the way they do because they feel threatened. They are threatened by smart women, strong women, gender non-conforming workers, gay people, or anything else that makes them face up to their inadequacies.
We are proud to fight sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace (whether yours or his).
I hired Susan Crumiller for a delicate, emotionally and legally complicated<!– landlord-tenant–> dispute involving my older sister, and from the moment she started working — on an urgent, time-sensitive motion, by the way — she re-defined my admittedly cynical view of what a lawyer could do, and actually renewed my faith in the possibilities of the profession. She was at once responsive to my needs and my sister’s needs — which were often at odds — and kept both of us informed as needed in every part of the process. She was tough when she had to be tough, and was forthcoming at every step — when there were procedural choices to be made she explained the potential consequences of each one, and provided thorough, unfailingly excellent advice that led to the best result possible in this particular case, both for my sister and for myself. Look up great lawyer in the dictionary, there’s a picture of Susan Crumiller.
Susan was beyond excellent, she immediately got involved, pursued all the correct relationships and actions needed to resolve the outstanding issues.
She was very professional, friendly, great communicator, and extremely knowledgeable in her field.
I highly recommend Susan.
We had a very tough case and initially went to another firm that a friend had suggested. However, my friend’s issue was very different than ours and as far as I’m concerned this firm couldn’t have been worse. After paying them a substantial retainer fee after initially a good first meeting, they dropped the ball again and again. They also always sent a different person to represent us in court on our court dates (we barely knew who our lawyer was, but it basically boiled down to who was available that day). They were impersonal and disinterested, making a lot of mistakes that ended up costing us more money. I have a basis for comparison when I say that Susan is exemplary. Thank goodness we found her! I’m only sorry we were not able to hire her first because we wasted a lot of time with inadequate lawyers who could not hold a candle to her. She competently addressed the problems that the first firm created for us and was able get up to speed with all of the confusing things that needed to be done with amazing alacrity and thoroughness.
Susan is an exceptionally talented lawyer. I hired Susan to represent me in a lawsuit and she exceeded my expectations in every respect. Susan knows the law and, perhaps more importantly, she knows how to advocate for her clients. She zealously argued my case at every step, consistently taking exactly the right approach. Her wise counsel was greatly appreciated.
Susan explained not just the letter of the law but also offered the sort of practical, honest, even caring, advice I needed to be confident I was making the right decision—even when that advice meant less business for her and not more. I never for a moment wondered if she had my best interests at heart. She’s also incredibly efficient in the way she thinks and acts, which in a profession where time is literally money, could not be more valuable.
Susan is truly evening the playing field on behalf of individuals like us, and I’m wiser because of my experiences with her, and grateful to have had her on my side.
