Judith (Judy) Susskind is one of Michigan’s foremost medical malpractice and personal injury trial attorneys who has, for over 30-years, successfully handled medical malpractice cases, obtaining favorable outcomes for her clients and their families.

Once I take on a case, I will do my best to see it through to a successful conclusion

I work hard to win. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping a client overcome obstacles, and making his or her life better. Our jury trial system allows me to do this by successfully seeking justice and obtaining compensation for injured people that have been wronged. I spend time with my clients so I understand what they have been through, and are going through. This helps to motivate me to help.

I serve the law because I love to help people who deserve justice, and fighting for that justice brings tremendous satisfaction. Practicing medical malpractice law allows me to continue being a student, and learning to perfect my craft for the rest of my career.
