Presenter Bio:

Susan Myres has been practicing family law in the Houston area since 1982 forming her own firm, Myres & Associates, in 2011. She has been certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as a Family Law Specialist since 1988 and has been named to the annual list of Texas Super Lawyers every year since 2006.

Susan is a past president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and became a trusted source of information as president during the COVID pandemic.  She provided interviews with regional, national and international journalists to help divorcing and divorced couples, especially couples sharing custody of children, who were dealing with an unprecedented series of COVID-19 challenges.

Susan utilizes all forms of dispute resolution in her practice, from supporting clients who have worked out their agreements to mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, and traditional litigation, choosing the approach that is best for the individual client. She stays abreast of leading mental health issues that intersect with family law, including mood disorders, high-conflict personality disorders, addiction, and abuse prevention issues. Her strength is being able to see options and alternate paths to achieve the realistic goals of her clients. She practices with a curiosity to learn why people do what they do and studies a wide variety of resources to maximize the benefits to her clients, their family and the practice of family law.
