Town and Country divorce attorney Susan M. Hais has been practicing family law in the St. Louis area for more than 30 years. Early in her career as a family law attorney, her mission was to overcome the presumption of a “Tender Years Doctrine” in child custody cases, which was a legal principle presuming that a child’s “tender” years should be spent with the mother. While that doctrine no longer exists, she is still committed to helping men battle numerous other outdated gender stereotypes.
“I find family law rewarding,” Ms. Hais said. “My clients write to me and send me pictures of their kids and always seem to remember me. The appeal is that it is about people and relationships, and it makes you feel like you are doing something to make a difference.”
Ms. Hais focuses her practice on complex divorce litigation, involving evaluations of complex financial interests and tax issues to cases dealing with child custody and support.
