  • Ms. Getty accepted an appointment by the State to act as interim guardian for my grandmother. This is/was a difficult time for my parents and I, having to experience a loved ones declining health together with dementia. My grandmother had two strokes within a month of each other and it was determined that she required 24/7 medical treatment permanently. The legal battle ensued between a family member and her boyfriend attempting to remove her from the nursing home against medical advice. Ms. Getty was a Godsend to our family. She provided expert legal advice and representation but more importantly, she provided support and compassion. She not only won our case for my permanent guardianship for my grandmother, she went a step further and obtained a protective order for my grandmother to keep anyone from removing her from the nursing home illegally. Ms. Getty genuinely cares for her clients, which is a rare find. I highly recommend Ms. Getty for your legal needs.


  • I just want to thank Susan for her work. As has been my experience she was right on the money. She also helped us with the discussion, we talked about some things I would have never known, it was great. Susan was very nice and very professional. If my Mom or I need anything in the future, I will call Susan. She really was GREAT, and so was the other staff involved. Thank you, Susan, for a wonderful job!!!

      — The old Master Chief, Ron Meyer

  • I would like to share my appreciation and feedback with you regarding Susan Hill's professionalism in assisting my mother with her estate planning. Susan's approach to working with her was particularly thorough, ensuring that she fully understood the decisions she was making. Susan's demeanor was clearly one of compassion and consummate professionalism. It is inspiring to meet someone who is so very dedicated to excellence and a high quality of service to their clients. Finally in a difficult situation where my mother was rehabilitating Susan made extra effort to meet with her to complete her revisions and put her mind at ease. Thank you on behalf of myself and my mother.

      — Jill and Gladys

Linda has been a true blessing to us and will be for anyone lucky enough to have her represent them. My son said “My kids may have never met you, but you can bet you've had a massive impact on their lives
