Susan J. Baronoff


Susan Baronoff has extensive experience as a litigation attorney, especially in employment, professional liability and appellate matters.

In addition to litigating all types of employment disputes, she assists clients in resolving disputes through negotiation and mediation, and in preventing claims through counseling, handbook review, and training. She is certified by the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination as a trainer in Preventing Harassment in the Workplace.

In representing lawyers in professional liability matters, including those involving legal malpractice claims and bar discipline, she draws upon her experience as General Counsel, Primary Loss Prevention Partner and Ethics Counsel for Murtha Cullina through 2015 and her service as a hearing officer for the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers from 2006-2011. She has given numerous loss prevention presentations to attorneys and firms insured by the Attorneys’ Liability Assurance Society (ALAS).

Having started her career as a trial and appellate attorney with the Massachusetts Defenders Committee (now the Committee for Public Counsel Services) and as a staff attorney with the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, Susan continues to handle appeals and post-conviction proceedings. In the course of her career, she has argued and briefed dozens of civil and criminal appeals in the state and federal courts, some of which have led to noteworthy rulings concerning the application of statutes of limitations, the interpretation of employment disability laws, the scope of the attorney-client relationship, the responsibilities of law partners to each other, and jury instructions.

Susan was among those honored by the Boston Bar Association for work with its Boston Marathon Assistance Project, and has been involved in many other pro bono projects. She has served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras, and is currently a volunteer at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
