My father left my mother and I when I was four years old, and then my mother passed away when I was ten. Since then I was a ward of the court, and was raised by my sister and large extended family. I was the community child. Everyone contributed what they could whether it be time, money or love and life lessons. As a result, I am deeply grateful and value my family and therefore started this family focused practice. While I appreciate the family unit, I’m also well aware that it comes in all shapes, sizes and dynamics. Whoever your family is, it’s my instinct to help you manage and protect it. I founded People Law Practice in 2013 upon my graduation from The University of San Francisco School of Law.
"I chose Susanna because of her firm's philosophy. From the start she was very personable which helped to calm my stress and ease my concerns, her sense of understanding made my transition comforting. I will return to her again for my future family needs. Without a doubt her poised personality, flexibility and patience have been much appreciated."
