Chair and leader of Rubin and Rudman’s Family Law Practice, Susan's clients have relied upon her professional, practical and creative approach to resolving issues and cases for more than 30 years through mediation, arbitration and litigation. Her experience representing individuals, including business owners, in a broad range of domestic relations and other kinds of cases helps her clients make informed decisions about their circumstances, including not only family law issues but also related trust and estate planning concerns. By focusing on the most cost-effective means of accomplishing her clients' objectives, Susan seeks to preserve not only the client's assets but also protect family relations against unnecessary and protracted litigation. She strives to protect those businesses or professional practices that are a source of income to one or both parties in a family law matter or that constitute an asset subject to division in premarital or post-marital agreements or in divorce proceedings. In helping family law clients with planning and administering estates, Susan works to properly and effectively provide for the transfer of interests in family businesses, trusts and other assets when changes to marital or other family relationships occur.
