Suzanne Glade is principal with Fischel & Kahn.

She is a tenacious family law and domestic relations attorney who helps clients navigate complex financial and custody maters.

Her litigation and mediation background allow her to fiercely advocate for clients in the courtroom, as well as work collaboratively to provide multiple options for resolving disputes.

She is a skilled negotiator and has made a name for herself as the attorneys’ choice for mediating difficult financial and child related issues, parent coordination and as a child representative.

Families turn to Suzanne to ensure positive outcomes in all stages of marriage and in family law litigation.

She has extensive experience in the courtroom regarding petitions, pre-judgment motions, trials and post-decree proceedings, and her savvy negotiating tactics transcend litigation to construct favorable pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

She also handles the complex matters business professionals face in negotiating child custody, parenting time, division of assets, financial analysis, business valuation, child support and maintenance.

She is routinely appointed by the courts to represent children in domestic relations cases.

Suzanne also speaks regularly to mental health practice groups and associations on changes to the domestic relations statute. She is also recognized annually by Leading Lawyers and Best Lawyers in Family Law.

Earlier in her career she was an attorney with the US Environmental Protection Agency, and she continues to serve as a consultant for the agency, providing annual training for its lawyers on trial skills at the USEPA Trial Advocacy Institute.

For the past two years Suzanne has been recognized by Best Lawyers for her work in Family Law.
