Experience Matters


I have been practicing Family law in Vermont for over 30 years. I have been peer reviewed with LexisNexis as being highly rated in both legal ability and Ethical Standards for over the past ten years.

I am the only attorney running for Assistant Judge. I have spent a great deal of time in Chittenden Family Court litigating issues concerning custody cases, parent child contact issues ,spousal support issues. relief from abuse cases and modification/enforcement of court orders.

The Assistant Judge plays a very important role in Court assisting the Presiding Judge in deciding these issues. Assistant Judges can question witnesses, review the pleadings, and determine questions of fact. To date, there has not been an Assistant Chittenden Family Court who was an attorney. I feel that my breadth of legal knowledge and experience could only serve as an asset to the Judge and the parties who participate in these proceedings.

While raising my family in Vermont, I also spent a great deal of time doing community service. I am a past president and past board member of the Colchester Milton Rotary club, having won awards such as Rotarian of the Year and, the Long Haul award for my many years of "service above self". I have also served on the Hadassah Board of Directors as well as Vice President of the Shelburne Democratic Club.

I have resided in Chittenden county for over 34 years, and raised my two sons in Vermont. I currently reside in South Burlington, VT and am a proud grandmother to Piper Brown.

There is a contested democratic primary being held throughout Chittenden County on August 14, 2018. Two positions are open for the Chittenden County Assistant Judgeship. I welcome your support.

Suzanne worked with me for almost 1.5 and did a great job. She definitely worked hard for me and knows her law. I can say have no regrets choosing suzanne and believe I would not have received a better outcome with anyone else. Also suzanne check your site you spelled with wrong "wih" lol

As a man in Vermont I found that it's extremely difficult to fight custody issues and get fair treatment from the court regarding children. After meeting with Suzanne I could immediately tell that she was committed to the family and the children in a way that was fair and just for everyone. As far as protecting my rights as a father.

I had to deal with a nasty divorce case and Suzanne knew what to do. She helped me from start to finish dealing with all of the courtroom proceedings. I felt confident with her handling the case. She reassured me and answered my concerns. I was very pleased with the outcome.

I came to Suzanne after having a different attorney for the first six months of my divorce. I immediately felt a sense of relief and knew she meant business. She goes above and beyond all of my expectations for an attorney and works tirelessly even when opposing counsel is uncooperative or unwilling to negotiate. I know that I am in good hands and I will have the best possible outcome.

Suzanne came to my rescue two days before my divorce hearing. She prepped me for the hearing and made sure I had all my ducks in a row. In the court room I could barley talk and she was calm and collected. Very professional but I still felt like I was working with a real person who understood what I was going through. She got me everything I needed and wanted out of my divorce, and most importantly the full custody I was seeking. I worked with three other attorneys and never felt the connection I did with her. I'm very happy to say I'm officially divorced, and I have her to thank for it ❤
