In her more than 30-year career, Susie has helped her clients resolve disputes in state and federal trial and appellate courts across the nation in a wide array of areas – including real estate and other Ponzi fraud schemes, fiduciary duty litigation, intellectual property, construction, probate, professional malpractice and bankruptcy-based preference and fraudulent conveyance litigation. Whether the client is one person or dozens of individuals, a bankruptcy trustee, a corporation, or trust beneficiaries, Susie brings to each client’s representation a deep understanding of the financial and emotional components of litigation and a commitment to resolving disputes in the most efficient way possible. Susie understands that each dispute is personal and has significant and frequently life-changing consequences.
Susie Jacks grew up in Roanoke, Virginia. As the second of five children, Susie has always “tried harder,” and this ethic has permeated every aspect of Susie’s career and her approach to representing her clients.
At the University of Virginia School of Law, Susie served on the Moot Court Board and was admitted to membership in the Raven Society, an honorary society recognizing contributions to the quality of life at the University of Virginia.
Susie began her legal career with one of the five largest firms in Houston, Texas, where as a member of the firm’s trial section, she represented clients in a wide-range of litigation disputes from probate estate matters to fraud cases to construction litigation. But since the beginning of her career, Susie’s primary focus has been in the area of commercial trial/bankruptcy reorganization and litigation. Susie became certified in Business Bankruptcy Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in 1994. After eleven years with a big firm, Susie and four of her partners formed their own firm and continued their focus on commercial and bankruptcy litigation.
