Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Susan Dinneen stayed busy—year-round sports, schoolwork, and other extra-curricular activities kept her body and mind constantly in motion. Today, Susan credits those demanding early years for preparing her for a life in law.

“Being a successful lawyer requires many assets, the most underrecognized of which are fortitude and grit. The job is never done,” says Susan.

An experienced litigator and advisor, Susan defends her insurance company clients against fraud, extra-contractual/bad faith claims, catastrophe claims, and coverage disputes. She has obtained multiple zero verdicts in both bench and jury trials and has authored appellate briefs that resulted in favorable rulings for the insurance industry. She was named to 2023 Super Lawyers, New Orleans CityBusiness’ 2022 Leadership in Law Class, Elite Lawyers for Insurance Law (Inside New Orleans), and New Orleans CityBusiness’ Women of the Year Class in 2016.

Susan’s approach in both her personal and professional life is to plan as much as possible, pivot when necessary, and forge ahead.

“With my profession, it’s easy to be a good lawyer when the facts and law are in your favor. What sets you apart is when they’re not and yet you’re able to successfully advise and advocate for your clients to achieve the best result for them,” she says.

Susan is a Louisiana Bar Foundation Fellow and has served on the board of directors of several non-profits, including the Junior League of New Orleans, Girls on the Run New Orleans, and the Travelers Aid Society. She currently serves on the Board of Commissioners for the Lakeview Crime Prevention District.
