Testimonials

  • Honest, Reliable, and Efficient

    He listened, he understood, and he explained things very clearly. He does not provide false hope. He explains strategies clearly and allows you to control the level of risk/reward you are comfortable taking. In my case he delivered exactly what we had talked about in our very first meeting. I felt confident in Kris’s representation. That’s huge when you’re going through any type of stressful case. I never worried that “the other team” would somehow get one over on him. They never did.

    Kris will definitely be my attorney should I ever require legal assistance in the future. I’m certain he could “duke it out in court” but his demeanor and professionalism secured my outcome without having to go there. He’s always focused on securing the outcome and he works very well with opposing counsel to achieve it.

    Thanks again for making a very tough situation much more endurable.

  • Kris was calm and succinct in his approach which ultimately saved me time and money.
    I was at an roadblock in my dealings with my ex. The kids were being brought into adult situations. As a result, I had reached out to several attorneys for help. They had all really just didn't want the hassle of my case. Kris listened to me and took excellent notes. He gave me options that would help alleviate the stress on me. Subsequently, he and his team reviewed the merits of the case and determined the best course of action to resolve the continued cycle of stress and conflict.

    In the proceeding, Kris was calm and succinct in his approach which ultimately saved me time and money. We won the motion and he able to give me and my family the peace that we needed.

    Alienation is never a good thing but Kris and the team at O'Brian work together to bring a viable solution to reality. They were open to looking for options that would solve the issues and bring peace to conflict.

  • They honestly care about their clients
    Excellent Firm. This office treated me extremely well throughout my case. I had a very difficult and emotionally charged divorce and their team was with me and my children every step of the way. I always felt that I had a strong advocate on my side. If you have children, I especially recommend this office. The biggest "plus" with this firm, for me anyway, is that they are all very caring and personable. They take each case on as if they are fighting it for themselves. They honestly care about their clients; you won't feel like you're just their next paycheck!"

  • Their support has been extremely reassuring in this unbearable situation.
    Supportive. My experience with Susan Millican O'Brian and her firm has shown me that there are lawyers who care about the clients. Susan did not represent me in court but did lend assistance and support when needed. One specific time was when my attorney had to be out of town. The opposing party tried to slip in some exhibits last minute knowing my lawyer was out of town. Susan contacted me from her home after hours to make sure I was made aware of what was going on and also made sure I knew what it all meant. Susan and her firm have stood by me and my family throughout my custody hearing. Their support has been extremely reassuring in this unbearable situation.

  • They treated me with respect and were honest
    Dedicated and Hard Working. I came to the O'Brian & Associates with an extremely difficult parenting action that needed some major changes. I knew going into this process that the odds were against me, although, I had confidence that if anyone could succeed and persuade a Commissioner/Judge to listen to my position, it would be this team. They are very thorough in their research and they wholeheartedly believe in what they do. The result of their hard work was very favorable for my daughter and I. I am so thankful to this team and the changes they were able to make for my life and my family. Everyone associated with this office has always gone above and beyond what I expected. If I had a question there was always someone who knew about my case and was able to get the answer I needed. They treated me with respect and were honest, and from day one exceeded my all my expectations. I would highly recommend Susan's office to everyone.

  • It was a relief to trust my lawyer
    Professional Team - Handles with Care. I am so grateful to Susan and her team. They handled my divorce case very professionally. They handled me, during such an emotional time, with care and respect. Everything was explained to me thoroughly - including my bill. If I ever had a question or a concern, the office was a phone call away, and promptly answered my questions. I found Susan very ethical - a huge difference from some of the lawyers I have used in the past, and those a few of my colleagues have used for their divorces. Let me say this: If you are going through a divorce, and especially if you are a woman, do yourself a favor and get a good lawyer with an experienced team. You will not regret it - even if it costs you a bit more. I look back at my divorce, and I realize what a fragile state I was in - it was a relief to trust my lawyer - to know my case was being handled effectively. I wholeheartedly recommend Susan Millican O'Brian's office.

  • I cannot recommend her more highly
    An Excellent Attorney. Susan is an experienced, thorough professional in her field that also brings a heartfelt, compassion-based intangible that is rare, yet welcomed; particularly in divorce proceedings. Her counsel was usually spot on. I cannot recommend her more highly.

  • Her ethics were exemplary both in her actions and the actions of her staff
    Completely Satisfied in Arlington. Ms. O'Brian was the right lawyer at the right time for me. I found her professional and extremely thorough. Her ethics were exemplary both in her actions and the actions of her staff. In the course of my divorce I had to deal with my mother's cancer, my own cancer and a cheating spouse who wanted basically every asset we amassed in 26 years. Without Ms. O'Brian's assistance I doubt I would have obtained a fair settlement.

  • You are certainly one of my blessings.
    In the midst of this divorce consuming year - the fears, the concerns, the hurt, the questions - I'm so thankful for you. Each time I entered your office there was for me a feeling of caring companionship and support. You gave both your expertise and your heart to me and to my daughter. Despite the agony of my relationship, my escape from it has had many blessings. You are certainly one of my blessings.
