Suzanne Houle

Suzanne is truly awesome….God has given her wisdom that makes her an outstanding lawyer. In our initial consultation of my second degree assault case, she immediately picked up on a major error that my opponent made…charges were filed long after the statutes of limitation for the State of MD and obviously retaliatory. Suzanne thoroughly educated me on the process and made it a priority to have the case dismissed before it was even heard in court. On the day of trial, my case was dismissed right there on the spot! I can’t thank her enough for all her efforts and for working with me on this matter. Folks, Suzanne is the real deal!

Mandeep, Suzanne, and the support staff were absolutely amazing. Honestly, I’ve never had a comparable experience with an attorney team. My charges could have severely altered my life and I needed a strong attorney to represent my interest. I found Cochran and Chhabra through faith and market research. I was confident I made the right choice by choosing Cochran and Chhabra, LLC during my initial conversation with Mandeep. Mandeep spoke with me during my initial call to the office and he personally texted me his phone number and directions to the office. The disposition and positive outcome of my case proved my assessment correct.
Mandeep’s ground game (the communication with the State’s Attorney and preparation) is second to none. After a few months of preparation and consistent communication, Mandeep passed my case to Suzanne Houle. The transfer of information was seamless and Suzanne represented me in court. Having had her own practice for several years, Suzanne walked me through the proceeding, liaised with the State’s Attorney, and prepared me to appear before the judge. Mandeep and Suzanne did such an amazing job that my Status Conference appearance turned out to be my trial. In the end, the States Attorney’s recommendation aligned with what Mandeep and Suzanne conferred with her about. The judge agreed, found me not guilty, and waived all of my court fees.
Prayerfully I won’t require counsel for any future incidents however, if I do, I will definitely contact Mandeep or Suzanne.

I’m so glad I hired Cochran & Chhabra, Suzanne was wonderful and put my mind at ease. She made sure I was prepared and as a result my charge was immediately dropped and expunged. I couldn’t be happier!

I am writing this to give rave reviews about Suzanne and her firm. Primarily, I appreciated her great advice and attention to detail. From the very first meeting I was put at ease knowing I had someone looking out for my best interest. She is a class act and if you need a lawyer to represent you I would highly recommend Suzanne.

Susanne Houle represented me in 4 cases over license and registration violations. I had a very very expired license and suspended tags. I think the first prosecutor refused to consolidate the three AA County cases due to jealousy. The second and third were consolidated, saving me time, if nothing else because Suzanne Houle knows what she is doing. I had citations perhaps as long as I am tall if laid out together, one of which was three pages long with 12 charges. A lawyer with whom I had previously spoken guaranteed me jail time and big fines and wouldn’t even take the case – a drive to AA County wasn’t how he planned to spend an otherwise great day. He also said that with so many incidents in such a short time things were really really bad. So that suggests that today when I went for my last case, the guy before me should have gotten off light, and I should have done two days – the maximum is 6 months per offense on just one offense we’d already had thrown out previously. In AA county, the maximum fines alone totalled – I’d have to look – $1000? $2000 easy. I walked away with $150 total in fines and zero points which would have gotten my brand new DL suspended if I had to take the maximum – something I didn’t need after paying the comptroller a pile of cash just to get the license back.
The aforementioned gentleman’s lawyer, after dealing with the prosecutor brought him before the judge with a jailable count that Susanne Houle had already convinced the prosecutor to throw out if I took a hit of $50 on a benign (no points) charge. $50 maximum.
What he got:
His two priors were spaced out ten years apart since 1999. Should get off light, right?
His lawyer played up his character (hardworking landscaper, family man, expression of remorse, etc.) to the hilt and all I can say is he might be cutting grass late at night to pay the fine and still feed the family.
Bigger fine – I didn’t catch the amount, but I wish I had his number. He can cut my grass while I’m fixing the riding mower.
Probation – 30, 60, 90, whatever.
40 hrs community service. At this point I’m thinking, “Brush axe clearing trees in the woods.” They do that in some places. Also thinking, “I can do that!” completely forgetting that Suzanne is about to have that charge thrown out in my case. So much for time to do side work to pay the fine. I really feel sorry for him. He got the shaft.
A lecture about how 3 offenses can get a judge thinking about jail time and even deportation.
What Suzanne Houle did for me:
Again. All 3 AA County cases only cost me $150, no points, no time, no service. Not even a lecture.
She built me up in 30 seconds and confirmed that any priors were satisfied.
$50 fine reduced to $35 without even asking – a gift!
3 days unsupervised probation – an incentive for me to pay up quickly.
No lecture!
Some might say there were miracles involved in this and I won’t deny that; but one of those miracles is named Angelique – my awesome sister who spoke with, vetted, and hired Suzanne Houle to represent me from a list of five attorneys.
Suzanne Houle is senior partner material and any law firm that doesn’t see that would be foolish to lose her because one way or another, that woman is going places.

I am not familiar with working with legal issues, so meeting Suzanne Houle and having her represent my son was the right decision. She was understanding, patient, and comprehensive in our very first visit. I felt comfortable. She took care of the details and we were satisfied with the outcome. Thank you, Suzanne.

I contacted her with a traffic case, and she resolved it within a week. She was friendly, helpful, and did what she said she would do. I would definitely hire her again if I had to.

I hired Mrs. Houle to be the attorney for my boyfriend. He has quite a few convictions on his record. During his criminal case in Baltimore County, she kept us up to date on everything that she planned to do. She not only advised us, but also showed compassion and comforted us through the entire process. She went above and beyond what she was paid to do. She took over an hour just to consult about the case before even being hired. Her replies to inquiries were quick, accurate and helpful. She knew how most of the case would play out before it even happened. She was very professional with us, and everyone in the court. Unlike some attorneys, who try to be forceful within the court, she was very approachable and easy to deal with, while still not allowing herself to be walked on by the prosecutor, and got a better than average deal with the state, and an even better agreement with the judge. She knew precisely what type of person the judge was and how he would react to certain things brought up in court. She was very helpful in coaching my boyfriend about what the judge would want to hear to agree with the deal that she had in place from the prosecutor. She also treats you as a human being and not just another paycheck. That may not sound like much, but when you are looking at possible jail time, it can be very comforting.

With that said, while no one can promise a good outcome in every case, I can say with confidence, that she will give her best effort to defend you and get the best possible outcome.

I hired Suzanne Houle to defend my boyfriend in Anne Arundel County. This case was over two years old and he was looking at 40 charges. Most of the charges were trumped up as usual over prescription fraud. Anyway, Ms. Houle handled this case perfectly. She did research on the case, the facts and even the judge, to determine which way he swayed. Whether he was hard, soft or down the middle. First time around in court she got a good deal. Plead guilty to one charge. But we wanted to push it off until later. She devised an idea to get it postponed. The second time around she did more research on the new judge. She poked around with the states attorney to see what he was looking to do. She recognized that the court was full, the states attorney was over worked for the day. She backed him in to a corner with an offer. He did not like the deal and refused. Later in the day she pressured him for relevant facts of whether witnesses were present and so on. She pressed on, forcing him into a corner. She forced the issue so that he was given no choice but to agree to put all 40 counts on a stet docket. You can research it to find out what a stet is. In essence, on 40 charges, he walked out with no fine, no court costs, no probation and no jail time. Please note that all cases are different. And the same results cannot be guaranteed, you need to know that she will be the best attorney you can find. She was not only there in a professional manor, but she treated him like he was a person. A human being. One who made a mistake. An honest, hand forced by circumstances, mistake. When he was feeling down and upset, she made sure to discuss the case and inform him of all the details. She kept us in the loop at all times and controlled the case and atmosphere in the courtroom at all times. She didn’t just back down and take the first deal. She worked hard for the best deal. This is the best attorney possible for your case. She does not get the credit she deserves. If it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would. Well worth the money we paid. She saved our relationship. And our lives together.

Suzanne was extremely warm and communicative during the entire process for my traffic case. She thoroughly explained every potential outcome to me and advised me of my best options throughout.
