  • Client Testimonial

    Thank you Doug for introducing me to this remarkable person, namely, Susanne Hayward.....personally as an individual and professionally as a Lawyer specializing in Matrimonial Law..

    In life's journey one meets and interacts with many people but in the whole scheme of things when all is said and done there are precious few individuals on this planet that truthfully stand the test of time and make a difference. Susanne Hayward is one of those remarkable individuals.......
    that have made a positive impact and will continue to reinforce life's purpose on my forward journey: a "personal" catalyst. I sense that the Law Firm of HMH Law Offices is fortunate to have Susanne as one of its rising "stars" in the Legal Profession.

    Susanne was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. After receiving news of pending divorce proceedings from my ex, I really didn't know which end was up. I was dealing with a pending move, medical concerns, bills, and overwhelming tearful conflicting emotions: among many unknowns as to what life would have in store for me. On top of all that, I needed to set up funding to be sure I would be able to survive in order to avoid bankruptcy in my rental business as unknown collateral financial damage was looming. Susanne walked me through the divorce process and made sense of all of it. In retrospect I sincerely appreciate her support and sense of purpose even in the "darkest" hours. She answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of her day including late evenings after court and on weekends to review and advise. She is very principled, scrupulously honest and borne with the relentless pursuit of truth in justice. She is truthfully one in a million. Between the three of us, namely, Susanne Hayward, the staff of HMH Law Offices and myself we have overcome all obstacles: "against all odds". Now I know that the divorce is over, I can focus on reinventing my life at the "autumn" of my life. I will never forget you Susanne.... Thank you sincerely!!!

    All the best Susanne in your career of choice.
