Susan A. Capra, partner at Clifford Law Offices, is a compassionate and dedicated attorney, always advocating for the patient.
Susan’s career path reflects her compassion for others. As an undergraduate, she studied nursing and worked for years as a registered nurse at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. She joined Clifford Law Offices in 1989, having graduated with Honors from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago in 1990.

“As a nurse, I was the patient’s advocate. As a medical malpractice attorney, I am still the patient’s advocate but in a different area and profession.”- Susan A. Capra
