Your Family Law Firm 717-525-7711
Family Law Attorney
Susan has been practicing family law for 16 years and has extensive experience in complex divorce matters, as well as child custody and support matters. Before joining Levin Hoover, Susan worked for law firms in Philadelphia and Harrisburg. Prior to attaining her law degree, Susan was a trained paralegal and worked in the PA House of Representatives for 13 years. Although Susan had a love for both psychology and the law, with the foundation of her paralegal training, she chose to pursue a law degree after completing her undergrad degree while working for the legislature.
As a people person with an interest in psychology, family law became a natural fit and Susan made that her focus practice area. Over the course of her practice, in addition to sharpening her litigation skills, Susan has become a trained collaborative attorney and a trained mediator to represent those clients interested in a less adversarial approach to resolving differences and finding solutions.
Susan practices Collaborative Law, an alternative dispute resolution process which allows clients to resolve their divorce-related issues by privately negotiating mutually acceptable settlements. However, Susan has extensive litigation experience when a family law matter may not be suitable for alternative dispute resolution.
Susan believes the law is a great tool that can be applied even when situations are emotional. She enjoys bringing comfort and resolution to her clients who are facing tough situations, especially when it initially looks like a problem cannot be solved. While she believes strongly in the collaborative, less adversarial, approach to applying the law, when a case does not fit the collaborative process, Susan is a zealous advocate in court to get the best result for her clients.
