Our Story

Working out of a home office, Sussman Law Firm, PLLC was born in December of 2015. Despite these humble beginnings, Maria Ximena Sussman, owner and founder, had a vision for what SLF would become. Even before starting law school, Maria Ximena made it a goal to not only become an attorney, but to one day become a small law firm owner. This vision, combined with passion, dedication and hard work, has led SLF to win awards and become one of the fastest-growing law firms in the country. SLF has already helped thousands of people. What began as a general practice law firm has now evolved into a firm that has extensive expertise in the areas of family law, immigration law and more.


The Mission

Yes, we are lawyers. We are qualified, experienced and ready to advocate for you. But,empowering you is our number one mission. From the moment you place your trust in us to represent you, we make sure to empower you with a solid understanding of the law and how it applies to you, not just your case. We believe that in order to produce the best results for you, it cannot be about the bottom line, our ego or simply about winning. It is about working together and equipping you with the tools needed to finally give you a voice.


Our Approach

To us, you’re not just another client, you’re a person with a story. Everyone has a story and we want to hear yours. From the beginning of our representation, it is important that we understand not only the results you want, but why it is you want them. Each person is different, and therefore, our approach, legal advice and strategy in your case will be unique to you and your story. After all, clients are not just clients, they’re people just like us.
