Ethical. Conscientious. Knowledgeable. These characteristics combined with diverse and extensive experience are the backbone of Susan Notarius’ ability to understand clients’ business and legal needs and to provide them with exceptional representation.

Susan’s career thus far has spanned over 25 years of mortgage foreclosure and bankruptcy experience, as well as significant work in many other practice areas.

Susan is well-versed in all manner of financial and consumer regulation statutes and programs, including the Truth in Lending Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Susan spent most of her career working with one of the firm’s founders, David Kluever, and now lends her talents to the firm’s bankruptcy department. When Susan is not working, you might just spot her out on the links trying to play golf.
