Susan D. Ament chairs the Workers' Compensation Practice of Morris James' Personal Injury Group. She has more than 30 years of experience handling automobile and work-related accident claims.

Susan represents clients injured at work and in serious automobile accidents in their claims against insurance companies. Over the years, Susan has found that many clients do not understand the crucial need to have adequate automobile insurance coverage in the event of a serious accident. Susan educates her clients regarding Personal Injury and Workmen's Compensation law every day in her practice, and in seminars that she presents throughout the year.
