Susan Petersen’s career has always been based on telling people’s stories – first, as a broadcast journalist at several Ohio television news stations, and then, as an esteemed civil trial lawyer in Ohio’s courtrooms. She worked in the trenches as a reporter at WEWS-TV5 in Cleveland while attending law school, developing a knack for digging deep to uncover the truth behind every story. It was these journalistic and investigative skills that launched a legal career in which she has always represented everyday people in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. Since starting her own law firm in 2004, she has recovered over $50 million in verdicts and settlements for her clients in courtrooms across Ohio.

In 2008, Crain’s Cleveland Business Magazine selected her to its class of “Forty under 40” – a salute to Northeast Ohio’s most influential people under the age of 40. Since then, she has continued to lead, serving for more than a decade on the boards of the Ohio Association for Justice, the Cleveland Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the CSU Law Visiting Committee, now a member of its Executive Committee.

Her trial skills have earned her numerous recognitions, including induction as a member of both the American Board of Trial Advocates in 2013 and the International Society of Barristers in London, England in 2019. During 2019, the International Barristers Society elected Susan to serve on its Foundation Board and, in 2022, to its Board of Governors. Susan has been honored as an “Ohio Super Lawyer” by Law & Politics Magazine in every edition since 2013. She continues to tirelessly advocate for her clients and to pay it forward to the practice as a frequent lecturer on trial practice in Ohio.

She has been a nationally Certified Paralegal since 2008 as well as Registered Paralegal with the State of Florida.

Dan is a member of the American Society of Trial Consultants. For the past 10 years as National Director of APITLA, Dan has provided informal trial consulting to hundreds of lawyers.

Through his work as a litigation and trial consultant at Ramsdell Consulting Services, LLC, and as a way of “giving back”, Dan is carving out a segment of time separate and apart from his time available to practice law as co-counsel, to also provide litigation and trial consulting services so he can help more lawyers help their deserving clients.

Ramsdell Consulting does not practice law. We only enhance the skills of the legal practitioner to effectively identify and communicate all critical liability facts. Just one overlooked area of liability can easily make the difference in millions of extra dollars.

When he was just 17 years old, Dan and his mother were both nearly killed in a crash with a big truck. Dan later attended law school, and is now nationally recognized by plaintiff and defense attorneys alike as one of the most knowledgeable and passionate persons in America regarding the identification of, and effective presentation and communication of, all aspects of the multiple areas of violations of trucking industry safety rules, regulations, standards, practices and procedures.

Like the song says, Sergio was “Born and raised in SOUTH Detroit,” which is really Windsor, Ontario, Canada. His father worked in a car parts factory and his mother in various Italian restaurants. His family’s work ethic is the underpinning for everything, as he admits to not being the sharpest knife in the drawer. His grandfather, who left his home at 11 years old to make roads by hand (only for his parents to walk 8 hours on Saturday and take his meager salary and walk 8 hours home on Sunday) would say “go to work with a tie and a briefcase, not a hat and a lunch box.”

When he was young, he wanted to be Magic Johnson. Then Pat Riley. Then Magnum P.I. Then he developed 3 dreams – live on a tropical island, drive a Ferrari and have Wednesdays off. He has one out of three and suspects he is done, but he is still working on the other two. After watching My Cousin Vinny he went to law school in both Windsor and Detroit at the same time to obtain an American and a Canadian law degree. He then moved to Guam sight unseen and did insurance/medmal defense. After a stint in Jamaica, he moved to Honolulu, where he was still stuck doing defense work. After a few years, he said screw this and started his own firm, with the support of many local Plaintiff attorneys. He had three jury trials in 12 months and his practice evolved to where now he only takes a handful of medmal/death cases and works them up for trial. He rarely misses a chance to attend fun and educational conferences where he can further develop his still raw trial skills by learning from the best in the country.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing hockey at the Ice Palace, Lawyer’s League softball and basketball and playing bartender and karaoke MC at parties.
