Over the course of the last 19 years, she has handled a wide variety of cases, arising out of contract disputes, personal injuries, premises liability claims, and domestic assault situations. For the past 13 years, she has focused primarily on employment issues, working on behalf of both individuals and businesses large and small on sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation, whistleblower, medical leave, and wage cases.

She has been on both sides of sexual harassment cases in the courtroom. She has also conducted in-house sexual harassment investigations for large employers, and she has presented employee training sessions on sexual harassment in the workplace.

She also worked as a counselor and court advocate for crime victims and their families.

Sue began her legal career as a prosecutor in Delaware County, PA, just outside of Philadelphia.
