During law school, Sue worked as a judicial intern at the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri for Chief Judge Fernando Gaitan.

In 2015, Sue went into private practice in Kansas City where she litigated class actions, banking matters, medical malpractice and mass tort actions. In 2017, she began litigating on behalf of the State of Kansas, and then served as litigation counsel to a non-profit legal foundation where she focused on constitutional and election law litigation.

She is admitted to practice law in Missouri and Kansas, and in numerous federal district and appellate courts.

IN HER OWN WORDS

My passion is to help people by offering them hope and resolution during difficult situations. I believe that each of us has something to offer the world and so we should do our best to use our talents and skills to assist those who cross our path. Practical and compassionate guidance is what everyone needs at some point in life, so I strive to offer that to my clients. Often legal issues become personal issues that greatly affect the health and well-being of everyone involved in a dispute which is why we work hard to bring a positive resolution as quickly as possible. Understanding that lawsuits produce anxiety and uncertainty helps me to treat clients the way I would want to be treated in a stressful situation. For that reason, I try to communicate timely and clearly to keep clients apprised of activity in their cases because uncertainty produces fear. We aim to treat others the way we want to be treated- with respect and genuine concern. Being able to effectively represent someone in court is not only a large responsibility, it is also a source of great contentment for me.
