About Susan

Learn Susan’s areas of practice.

Hi, I’m Susan Lawson, Partner at the Rossen Law Firm. I was born and raised in South Florida and have been practicing criminal defense for over 13 years. The majority of my practice has been in South Florida but I have also practiced in Maryland and the District of Columbia. I have handled thousands of cases and have tried more than 100 jury trials ranging from driving and drug offenses to sexual battery and homicide cases. I have always loved to litigate and help others. I knew I could use my voice, knowledge, skills, and passion to zealously advocate and make a difference in the lives of others.

Fantastic Attorney!!
Susan is nothing short of incredible. She is supremely prepared for court, and is a real advocate for all of her clients no matter how big or small the case. She has a wonderful command of the courtroom, and has an excellent rapport with the judges. Shes articulate when explaining the law, and patient when speaking with clients. You know that when you hire Susan, you’re hiring someone who will fight until the very end to provide the best representation possible. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney!
