Susanne M. Sternberg

Susanne M. Sternberg: Attorney with Sternberg Law Office

Biography

Susanne M. Sternberg is an experienced, aggressive Phoenix family law attorney in practice for over a decade. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, she earned her Juris Doctor from Arizona State University in 1997, where she graduated at the very top of her class. She credits her parents for helping her excel academically and instilling her core values, including an unwavering work ethic and strong sense of integrity. Possessing life experience (she has gone through a divorce herself) as well as legal experience, she uses not only her intelligence but also her intuitiveness and innate abilities to the advantage of her clients.

In her solo practice, Susanne Sternberg's areas of expertise include divorce, child custody, child support, parenting time, and paternity. She also offers individual legal services, such as document review and preparation, in the interest of helping clients keep legal costs down through limited scope representation.

Equally comfortable drafting motions, negotiating settlements, and advocating in the courtroom, Susanne Sternberg focuses first on listening to her clients and determining their objectives, and then tailoring her representation to achieve those goals. She believes it is her responsibility to keep clients informed and involved in all stages of legal proceedings, and makes sure her clients understand the law and how it applies to their case. She has built a thriving family law practice based on referrals from satisfied clients, who often tell her they appreciate that she truly cares about them and their needs.

    Suzanne has been a god send in my Paternity - Child custody case and I would not have made it through this most difficult and challenging phase of my life in fighting for my fatherly rights for my beautiful and precious little daughter. Sue has my gratitude for the rest of my life as I can now move forward with my life and enjoy gift and the blessing my only child is giving me, definitely a daddy's girl :) She is so good at what she does that I almost felt bad for my ex...almost!:) She saved me a lot money, she was aggressive and even had to whip the opposing counsel into shape with their undermining tactics. I was extremely impressed with her skills, organization, overwhelming knowledge, sincerity, and her awesome staff (thank you Kim). She made me feel like I was the only client she was representing. She informed me of all my options while steering me to choose the best. Almost every time I spoke with her I was excited to hear the news. Suzanne and her staff would return every phone call and every email in a timely manner no matter how minor the question. During my hearings she remained calm, professional, and stayed on point. Winning!!! I would without a doubt highly recommend her to all my friends going through a child custody matter. She enjoys what she does and that's what makes her the best attorney in my opinion. She has a passion and will help you reach a better and brighter future. I've heard many horror stories from others that have been through this process. She literally instilled confidence in me and my case and taught me about short term pain for long term gains and helped me grow as a person and definitely a father, I felt empowered by the whole process. Not only did Suzanne change my life and that of my daughter I also learned so much and how to protect my rights as a parent. Wonderful experience! I now have cultivated a personal friendship and will always have her by my side for any future family law matters that should arise. Do yourself a favor on such an important life changing matter, reach out to Suzanne and you will have no regrets...

    I have to say that working with Susanne was the absolute best experience, she was honest and straight forward, my case was especially tough because of me being out of state. Susanne and her office were always available to me, and I had a ton of questions, she helped me more than these words can ever say! Take it from an out of state father.......she is the best and she fights for what is right!!!!!

    She was a good lawyer for me. She let me know how things would go with the court system, did what needed to be done and kept me informed through the whole process. I really do recommend Susanne Sternberg if you need a good family law lawyer. I will go back to her if I need a lawyer again.

    I have recommended Ms. Sternberg to others and they have all been just as satisfied with her as I have. Ms. Sternberg provides a level of service that I would have never imagined from a legal firm. She takes the time to get to know her clients. You feel like a person and not just the next case to be worked on. I cannot thank Ms. Sternberg and her staff enough for all of the time that they have invested and for the caring manner in which they approach everything.
