Prior to joining the Advocates, Susanne litigated domestic, civil and criminal cases throughout Colorado and Nebraska. Her work fostered empathy and compassion for clients, and underscored the need for open lines of communication during lawsuits. These cornerstones of Susanne’s litigation practice also formed the foundation for her legal search consulting practice as she guides clients and candidates through the complexities of the legal staffing process.
Susanne’s experience as a practicing attorney gives her valuable insight and an in-depth understanding of what makes law firms and attorneys successful and it allows her to ensure the right candidate is placed with the right client.
Susanne began her professional career breaking software as a Quality Assurance Specialist at Tibco Software in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Her passion for learning eventually drove her back to school and she moved west for law school at the University of Denver. While in law school, Susanne interned at Sun Microsystems, Colorado Access, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and with Judge Angela Arkin in the 18th Judicial District.
Susanne gained exposure to many different types of cases working for a small law firm in Frisco, Colorado and then returned to Denver to specialize in construction defect, personal injury defense and family law litigation.
