About me

For the past 30 years my practice has been geared toward family and consumer law. I represent men and women from all walks of life who need assistance with their finances or with family law issues, combining my legal knowedge with real-world solutions for their problems. In my spare time I volunteer at the local library and write book reviews for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette!

  • Dai Rosenblum

    I referred a personal friend of mine to Sue on a support matter. My friend is an artist who doesn't "get" legal matters and is somewhat intimidated by them. Sue explained things in a way that she could understand, guided her through the entire litigation process, and obtained an excellent result. I recommend Sue without reservation to anyone needing a Family Law or a Bankruptcy attorney.
