Review Susan Graham

About Me

Susan M. Graham is founder of Senior Edge Legal (formerly The Graham
Law Office, P.A.).  An authority on estate planning, elder law and VA
benefits law, Ms. Graham is a widely acclaimed speaker and seminar
leader in the field of estate planning.  Her journey into estate
planning stems from personal experience, witnessing the profound
challenges faced by loved ones left without a plan.  Determined to spare
others emotional upheaval and potentially dire financial ramifications,
she opened her law practice in 1977.  Since then, she has established
personal relationships with thousands of clients in an effort to
optimize their estate planning and elder law requirements, including
trusts, trust administration, wills, living wills, Medicaid planning and
VA benefits.  Her ultimate goal is to help her clients protect their
assets and keep what they have worked so hard for, providing them and
their loved ones with the certainty and protection they deserve.


 


A graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree,
Ms. Graham received her MBA with an emphasis in finance from Boston
University, and her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Idaho,
Moscow.  She has also taught college-level finance courses at Washington
State University, Pullman and the University of Idaho, Moscow.


 


A member of the Idaho State Bar Association, Ms. Graham is admitted
to practice before all the courts in the state of Idaho and the U. S.
Federal Court.  She is co-founder and past president of The American
Association of Trust, Estate and Elder Law Attorneys (AATEELA) and
Treasure Valley Estate Planning Council (TVEPC).  Ms. Graham is also a
member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

    I endorse this lawyer without reservation. She is the "Go To" lawyer in Idaho in the area of elder law. I have known Susan for over 18 years, have worked with her on a number of matters, and know other lawyers who have worked with her, who have the same high opinion. While Susan is both caring and compassionate, she is also no nonsense, thorough, and gets the job done in a timely manner. I would recommend her to my own friends and relatives.

    Susan has always impressed me with her expertise. I learn something from her every time we speak, and I've been practicing estate planning for many years. More importantly, the clients I have recommended to her have all spoken very highly of her services. I cannot endorse Susan strongly enough.
