SUSAN DENHAM

I practice exclusively in the areas of criminal defense and family law. There are numerous characteristics that you want and should expect in your attorney. Integrity, intelligence and an unfailing devotion to my clients are paramount. But those traits alone are not enough – you need a lawyer with significant experience. And that is exactly what I bring to the table.

In the past 15 years as a litigator, I have gained practical experience and knowledge making me comfortable in a courtroom and effectively arguing cases to both judges and juries. I believe in being honest and forthright with my clients. I wont promise a favorable outcome or simply tell you what you want to hear just to get you to hire me. However, I will promise to keep you informed and provide you with the best representation that I possibly can. I believe you need to have all the information about your case so that you can make an informed decision about the direction of your case.

Outside of the office, I spend much of my time coaching high school volleyball. I also enjoy participating in triathlons, marathons, and other activities that take me outdoors. On the weekends, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband while cheering on my Arizona Cardinals!
