About Susan

Learn Susan’s areas of practice.

Since joining Berman & Simmons in 2006, attorney Susan Faunce has represented clients throughout Maine who have been harmed by personal injury and medical negligence. She currently leads the firm’s mass tort practice, which involves dangerous drug and medical device litigation, and works on medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. Susan is motivated by compassion for her clients and an interest in medicine. 

From a young age, Susan knew she wanted to become a lawyer, in hopes of making a significant impact on people’s lives. Today she is one of Maine’s leading young lawyers: Susan was recognized by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” and named to Benchmark Litigation’s “Under 40 Hot List.”

“I was raised by a single mother who spoke limited English and I lived in an underdeveloped country as a young adult,” Susan says. “These experiences have taught me to be courageous, resourceful, and persistent. I understand that every case carries both legal and emotional aspects, and I believe every client should have a strong advocate who will work tirelessly to successfully resolve their case.” 

Susan is a graduate of Bowdoin College where she majored in Government Studies and Asian Studies.  After college she worked as a paralegal on high-profile intellectual property cases at a major Boston law firm. She joined the Peace Corps and served in Morocco, teaching English to local high school students and French to women in the community. Susan chose to return home to Maine and earned her law degree from the University of Maine School of Law.

Susan is co-chair of the Women’s Law Section of the Maine State Bar Association and a board member of the Robbie Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides funding for adaptive equipment and therapies for special needs children.
