About Susan Hais, Of Counsel

Schedule Your Initial Consultation with Susan

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 While that doctrine no longer exists, she is still committed to helping men battle numerous other outdated gender stereotypes.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.


Your Initial Consultation with Susan:

  • We offer phone and virtual online scheduling.
  • Initial consultations last one hour and provide an opportunity to address your specific questions and goals with an attorney.
  • Please be advised consultations are limited to yourself and the attorney (no other person may be present in the consultation).
  • This appointment will be contingent upon a conflict check. We will email an appointment confirmation after the review is complete.

A $195 consultation fee is due at the time of your appointment. Consultation fee waived at retention.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
