ABOUT SUE SANDYS
Estate Planning Attorney in Arizona
I grew up in the Detroit suburbs. I knew I wanted to be a lawyer from the summer I turned 16. I worked for a law office that summer and other than breaking the copy machine, I loved being in that environment. It just clicked with me. Being a lawyer lets me do 5 things I love: chat a lot, meet people, write, figure out complicated situations and help people.
Instead, I represented families involved with the Department of Child Safety for the first 11 years. I have helped families with estate planning for the past 18 years.
I love practicing law, but I also wanted to be available to raise my children. As a result, I have always had my office in my home and have kept my schedule flexible to handle sick kids, school plays and school sports. My 2 sons, ages 25 and 29, are now grown, but now the flexibility allows me to travel with my husband and work on charity projects in the community. My main project each year is helping to spearhead a backpack drive for JFCS. This year, we filled 1500 for needy K-12 students.
