Susan Crumiller (she/her/hers) is the Principal Attorney at Crumiller P.C. Susan uses pronouns she/her/hers. Until having children, Susan spent ten years representing tenants in fast-paced landlord-tenant litigation, first-seating a dozen trials and winning appeals at the Appellate Term and Appellate Division. After Susan had her second child, her employer began pressuring her to return to work only seven weeks into her maternity leave, in violation of their agreement with her employer that she could take five months off to bond with her baby. As a result of this experience, Susan kept thinking about other new moms who lacked the resources and job security to return to work on their own terms, as she had. Susan decided to create her own law firm dedicated to fighting for rights of new working parents to integrate their work and family lives without shame or fear of reprisal. Today, Crumiller P.C. helps women negotiate maternity leave and files lawsuits on behalf of women who have suffered pregnancy discrimination, including wrongful termination, or other sexual harassment and gender discrimination in the workplace. Susan holds a black belt in kung fu and was the first female wrestler in her high school’s history. She graduated in 2002 from Tulane University, where she majored in music theory, English, and sociology, and in 2006 from NYU School of Law.
