Susan joined the firm following two years as a federal law clerk in the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. Since graduating from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2002, Susan has maintained a varied litigation practice, focusing on the unique needs of her clients. She is equally happy to write an appellate brief or eviscerate a witness on cross-examination. She is admitted to practice in in all federal and state courts in Oklahoma and before the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
Susan was raised all over the world on various United States Air Force bases. Her father served twenty-two years enlisted in the Air Force and retired in Norman, based solely on a one-week TDY at Tinker A.F.B. Decisive, independent, and prudent decisions sometimes feel hereditary, but are always a hallmark of Susan’s practice.
When not in the office, Susan is an avid runner, completing multiple marathons and trail races each year. She is also a beekeeper and manages the busy lives of her five children (bagpipe and drum lessons; basketball, tennis and cross-country practice). The Kane family recently formed an expedition race team and can be found on any given day kayaking, canoeing, trail riding or running in preparation for the next big event. While the goal is not to get lost in the woods, she and the kids wouldn’t mind a multi-day, extreme outdoor challenge.
Being able to follow where the compass points and make difficult decisions to arrive at the goal is as useful a skill in litigation as it is in navigating an uncharted race.
