"We used Susan DeGraff for both a home sale and a purchase and had a great experience. I recommend her to anyone that wants an efficient, personable attorney with great attention to detail. She was always available and able to answer any questions in a timely manner."
"Susan has been a tremendously helpful legal counsel on the purchase of my first home in NY. She handled all matters quickly and urgently. We liked working with her so much on the first transaction that we used her to sell the same house 5 years later. I can’t recommend her enough, she is a great attorney"
