Understanding your rights under Wisconsin divorce laws can feel overwhelming. Let our attorneys do the heavy lifting.
In fourth grade, Suzanne was already such a tough debater and advocate that her teacher told her she should be a lawyer. Since then, Suzanne has learned not only the fine art of arguing her point but—more importantly—when not to argue. Suzanne is widely respected as a very calm, compassionate, and level-headed attorney. She knows how to make a point without escalating a situation. Unflappable and determined, she knows how to win without a fight.
But even more impressive than her court-room demeanor is her relationship with her clients. She is a true partner—committed to helping them achieve their goals on their terms. With a client-led approach, Suzanne serves as both a guide and resource—giving them referrals to specialists, strategy advice, and creative options while never compromising their autonomy as decision-maker.
Suzanne shines not only as an advocate but also as a counselor. She is quick to understand her clients’ goals and motivations and listens without judgement. She is honest, brainstorms unique solutions, and never defaults to a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Her clients say she is prepared, compassionate, and available when they need her.
And because Suzanne inherently understands the hopes and fears divorcing parents have for their children, she is particularly skilled at handling child-focused issues. Suzanne believes children should be a priority above all else during a divorce. As a result, her clients will have peace of mind and confidence knowing Suzanne did everything possible to minimize the impact of the divorce on their children.
Suzanne’s compassion spills over to other areas of her life, as well, including her volunteer work with Hope Center in Waukesha and St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.
In addition to all areas of family law, Suzanne also practices in employment law, minor guardianships/conservatorships, and landlord tenant law.
In her spare time, she enjoys scrapbooking, photography, cooking, and baking cheesecakes.
