Susan moved to Boston to join the Labor and Employment Department of Hale and Dorr LLP. Susan continued to work for Hale and Dorr on a part-time basis while raising her children.

She continued working with those colleagues through name changes in the firm and mergers - eventually becoming part of Barclay Damon LLP.
