Passionate Representation With Your Family’s Best Interests At Heart

Guiding Twin Cities Families And Individuals Forward

Family conflicts are highly personal matters that can bring out the best in people — or the worst. Such emotional matters are rarely easy to resolve on your own and often need a helping hand.

I established my legal practice, Susan Thurston, P.A., to compassionately guide Twin Cities area clients across the challenging terrain of divorce, property division, child custody, family support and many other issues that affect Minnesota families.

Trusted For My Experience And Client Relationships

I have practiced family law since 1987 and have extensive experience as both a negotiator and trial litigator. While I am tough in court, I also collaborate with opposing counsel to reach practical settlements that help everyone involved.

Your life may be changing, but it does not have to change for the worse.

Regardless of your circumstances, I can provide you with the legal guidance you need to reach your goals in a divorce or other family-related legal proceeding. I can also do it at a price you can afford.

What To Expect When You Work With Me

Facing any legal matter can feel scary. As your family law attorney, I will represent your wishes in any family-related legal problem. My two main areas of focus concern divorce-related issues and other areas of family law that precede, follow or are otherwise separate from a divorce proceeding.

You can expect the process to feel friendly and comfortable and that I will always:

  1. Meet with you in person
  2. Listen carefully to your concerns
  3. Clearly identify your legal goals
  4. Explain your all legal options given your unique circumstances
  5. Help you weigh the potential benefits and drawbacks of the strategies available to you
  6. Support you as your ally until the issue is resolved

I strongly believe that for my clients to gain lasting benefit, they must make informed decisions. Part of my job is to enable that decision-making process and ensure you make the right choice for you.
