About Ms Susan J Mundahl

I have been an attorney for over 32 years, and for the last twenty-one years I have worked exclusively with families and individuals going through divorce, custody and parenting time matters and step-parent adoptions. In my early legal career I briefly handled workers compensation case but then went on to work for several years as an assistant county attorney in Southern Minnesota handling all sorts of family matters including child protection, child support, juvenile delinquencies/truancies, guardianships/conservatorships and mental commitments. Then In the late 90's I headed up a special grant to develop and teach battered women's advocates in basic housing laws along with handling housing and divorce cases. My dedication to my client's having successful resolutions of their family matters is based on my personal experience in being divorced and successfully raising two children in a bi-nuclear family situation. My philosophy is that "Children are not a prize to be won." They deserve the love and affection of both parents in their life. In my practice, I see my job as assisting individuals and parents through the legal maze so that they can focus on healing and moving forward with their lives.
