Your First Impression of Susan Justice

Susan is confident, intelligent and has an aura about her that makes you curious about her and who she is. In the court room, she is resilient, positive and calm.  This is because she doesn’t just focus on law and litigation. She focuses on all the qualities that make a good lawyer, some of which have nothing to do with law:

To be a good lawyer, one must perform under pressure, stay calm, be good at public presentation and think on her feet. Susan practices Vipassana meditation daily, and has attended isolation meditations for 10 days at a time, in order to learn the ancient Buddhist practice of mindfulness.

She has learned how breathing, thoughts, feelings, body language and actions can be used to gain insight into the true nature of reality of oneself as well as understanding one’s opponent in any situation. These talents and trainings make her stand out as a lawyer because her focus is not just on what is obvious; it is on what is hidden and unnoticed by many, but most potent and influential.
