Susan has been practicing law in Madison for more than 35 years, concentrating her practice in the areas of estate planning, probate, and marital property under Wisconsin’s marital property laws.  Her primary goal is to assist her clients skillfully and efficiently in transferring their assets during life and at death through the use of wills and trusts, minimizing or eliminating entirely the tax consequences of such transfers.  Susan enjoyed 17 years of volunteering at Edgewood High School playing piano for their choirs and musicals. She now spends as much time as possible with her three young grandchildren.
