Sincere, compassionate, wise advice
Susan has advised me in a variety of matters: a landlord buyout, apartment succession rights, and a shared meter condition. Most recently, she guided me on the best way to vacate the rent stabilized apartment I’d lived in for ages. Without Susan, I would never have known there was a right way to do that, but in fact, there was, and it saved me a world of frustration in court a month later.
In all these matters, 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.
As most who have interacted with the owners of our homes in NYC know, it’s easy to feel at best under-informed and at worst utterly powerless. 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.
Quick and Smart
Susan streamlined our buyout by dealing with our landlord’s attorney professionally and efficiently. She was responsive to questions, quick to fix problems, and made the entire process easy. We enthusiastically endorse Susan and would recommend her to any tenant looking for help in the crazy New York real estate environment.
Someone you want on your side
I’m so happy Avvo connected me with Susan. She did great work for me, is a thoughtful listener, and a strong advocate. I really appreciate how she went above and beyond to make sure that her work for me was cost-effective and solid. She worked hard for my case and spoke for me with a passionate understanding of how I felt about the case, but also made sure that my money was well spent. She was actually able to save me quite a bit by being frugal and thoughtful about the case and its requirements. This is a lawyer who really cares about both you and your case, and will honestly do her best for you. I highly recommend Susan and her firm.
Dynamic, knowledgeable attorney
It is with great pleasure that I write this review of Susan Crumiller who is currently representing me in two complex litigation matters. I am a retired attorney litigator and therefore I realize that, based on my own legal experiences, I am more demanding and discerning than most clients. Yet, Ms. Crumiller has met and exceeded all of my expectations as an experienced Civil and State Supreme Court litigator and tenant advocate.
Ms. Crumiller is not only an extremely knowledgeable attorney but has the type of “bed side manner” and compassion rarely found in (not just) lawyers but professionals in general. She never hesitates to offer detailed explanations of processes or responses to questions or matters that require clarification. She is voracious with her adversaries but courteous. personable, open and kind to her clients.
She is an effective communicator in an outside of the courtroom. I have observed how other attorneys (adversaries) respond and treat her with respect and this in my opinion is often the greatest compliment a litigator attorney can ever receive. I for one know that one of the best decisions I have made was to hire Ms. Crumiller and I look forward to any opportunity I have to recommend her to all who are in similar need in strong professional representation.
Susan helped me with very stressful situation with my landlord, with total ease and focus. She immediately knew how to assist me, and how to respond to a deadline based request. I cannot emphasize how much Susan helped and and eased the stressful situation I was undergoing. She also was able to get me some monetary award (damages) for false accusations by my landlord.
