When Susan was young, she watched her father struggle to navigate the legal system because he was unable to afford expensive legal help while at the same time, he was earning too much to qualify for legal aid. This inspired her to become a lawyer—one who strives to provide her clients with quality legal services at reasonable rates. Graduating from UCLA with her Bachelor’s degree in 1984, she went on to receive her JD from Loyola Law School in 1990 and to pass the California State Bar the same year. In 1993, she began her own firm to cultivate personal relationships with her clients and to meet their individual needs. Susan provides a comprehensive analysis of her clients’ needs, values and goals for optimal strategic planning and beneficiary protection based on each client’s particular financial and family situations. She hopes that each of her clients leaves her office confident about their legal affairs.
