About Me

With an office in Fishers, Indiana and Rockville, Indiana, Susan M. Hunter’s estate planning practice is focused on guiding her clients through the process of balancing family protection with wealth preservation and family values.


Susan received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Hanover College, her law degree from Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University, and was admitted to the Indiana Bar in 1997.


Her areas of expertise include: Estate Planning, Elder Law, Asset Protection, Estate Administration, Trust Administration, Medicaid Planning, Probate, and Special Needs Planning.


Susan determined early in her career that focusing only on the wealth of the client was not the type of practice she wanted to participate in. Estate planning should not just preserve someone’s pocket book after they pass away, it should preserve who you are and what’s important to you.


Her belief is that everyone wants to be treated like a person, not like a check book. She wanted to be a part of a law firm that treated the clients the way she would want her family to be treated. Thus in 2001, Hunter Law Office began on her dining room table with a phone and a few clients.


 Since becoming an attorney, Susan has become affiliated with many organizations. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the Indiana State Bar Association (the Elder Law, Real Property, Trust and Probate, and the Small Firm Sections) as well as the Hamilton County Bar Association. She also is an active member of Lawyers with Purpose (“LWP”) where she is a mentor coach and national instructor, and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). She is on the Riverview Hospital Foundation Community Relations Board and is also President of the Allisonville Professional Center’s Owners Association.


Susan has been a resident of Hamilton County since 1996 and resides in Noblesville with her husband Mark, and two dogs, Wilbur and Willow. She considers herself a “lifetime learner” and enjoys photography and travel in her free time.

  • Kyle Lawrence Allen

    Susan is an expert. As a young attorney looking to specialize in the fields of Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Asset Protection, I wanted to learn from the best; and that's what led me to Susan and Hunter Law Office. Not only do I have the benefit of learning from a nationally recognized expert, but I also have the pleasure of working with someone that takes great pride in serving clients and their families with compassion, honesty, and dignity. Susan is not only a great mentor, but a great person. Those two qualities serve as a daily inspiration for me, and carry-over into the time we spend working with every family we serve. I am very happy and thankful to be a part of the family at Hunter Law Office.

    Susan is a colleague I often turn to because she's knowledgeable, eager to help and quick to respond. She frequently shares her expertise by teaching others in the elder law field. She's upbeat and willing to tackle tough cases and tough issues. Clients who choose her will be well served. That's why I've asked Susan to be available to MY clients if anything should happen to me.
