Susan’s interest in international matters stems from her study of the German language since she was in school, and from her experience living in Germany for two years as an exchange student. Susan graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College, a Swedish-American college in Minnesota, with a BA in German in 1984. Consequently, she sought to utilize her language skills and her interest in foreign cultures by moving to New York City. In 1988, Susan started working at the New York branch of Commerzbank, a German mega-bank. From 1992 to 1996, she worked specifically in the field of employment-based immigration at Commerzbank in cooperation with the immigration law firm Fragomen, Del Rey and Bernsen (as its outside counsel) to successfully submit multiple H-1B, TN, L-1A and L-1B and E-1 visa applications. In 1996, Susan moved to Colorado and began her employment with Mr. Hurley. Susan’s immigration-related specialties are employment and business based petitions and applications such as labor certifications, I-140 immigrant petitions and E-2 visa applications, as well as drafting business plans as required by investment-based work. Susan also provides interpreting and translating services for our German-speaking clients.
