About Me

 I help people navigate through the process of dealing with insurance companies after unfortunate circumstances and resulting injuries. I have over 18 years of practical legal experience, keen intuition, and an assertive approach to resolving issues. I understand that not everyone is familiar with the legal process, so I take the extra time to answer questions and ensure that my clients feel comfortable and well-informed throughout the process.  


My law partner Lisa Cyr and I wanted to create a firm that was different. Our focus is to help real people with real problems and manage expectations throughout the process.

  • Kali Ashley Gardner Bowles

    Susan is a straightforward, no-nonsense attorney who sincerely cares about her clients. I have referred close friends to Susan and found their needs and wishes were taken care of. She is intelligent, very knowledgeable about her area of law, and very experienced in every aspect of a client's case. I refer anyone to Susan without a doubt knowing they will be satisfied with only the initial free consultation or having Susan handle their entire case.

  • Farhan Hassan

    I have known Ms. Bowden for more than sixteen (16) years as we attended law school together. Since that time, I have referred Ms. Bowden several cases and have always found her work to be extremely competent and professional. Most importantly, she is always responsive to the client's questions and is also very aware of the practical considerations faced by all clients. During a tough period, all clients need to know that they are protected and that their attorney is vigorously advocating for their interests. Susan exceeds these expectations. I highly recommend Susan for all personal injury cases.
