Meet Susan | Attorney

Susan L. Meter

Attorney

undefinedSusan Meter decided to become an attorney after working for BlackRock Financial Management’s retirement services department. She attended law school with the desire to become an ERISA attorney. She was a law clerk during her three years of law school for a boutique law firm in San Diego. Following law school she continued to work for the same firm as an ERISA attorney where she got her first taste of plaintiff advocacy. In 2014, Susan decided to expand her horizon and joined a defense firm. After 4 years on the defense side, Susan longed to return to Plaintiff advocacy. In 2018, Susan joined Kantor & Kantor and opened the first San Diego location.

Susan has represented clients in a variety of employee benefits matters and has a wide-range of experience with qualified retirement plans, executive compensation plans, and disability and life benefits. Susan’s practice focuses on ERISA breach of fiduciary duty and benefit claim denials.

Susan has been an active leader in the San Diego community. Prior to becoming a mother, Susan was a Chair of Community Service for the San Diego County Bar Association from 2005 through 2012, she volunteered her time to organize and take part in the Community Housing Works program from 2005-2007, she was a volunteer and organizer of the Free Law clinic sponsored by the San Diego County Bar Association from 2006-2009, she served as a volunteer and organizer for Share our Strength, Taste of the Nation, in 2006 and 2007, and served as Co-Chair of Wills for Heroes from 2010-2015. Susan has been a member of the Western Pension & Benefits Conference and served on the board for a one-year term. Susan was voted Best of the Bar, San Diego Business Journal, 2014.

Susan was born in Aberdeen, Washington and lived there until she was 15 years old. She then moved with her mother and brother to Pittsburgh, PA where she attended high school and college at the University of Pittsburgh. She returned to the west coast where she attended law school in 2001. Susan enjoys spending time with her family and friends and doing all things artistic: painting, singing, playing guitar, gardening and building furniture. Susan built her kids a clubhouse and built herself a home office.

Client Testimonials

  • Your kindness will never be forgotten.

    “Dear Glenn, Several weeks ago, you graciously met with my husband and me and provided us with invaluable advice vis a vis his application for Long Term Disability and the Voluntary Transition Plan offered by his employer. Your calming presence and thoughtful guidance was so gratefully appreciated and we both felt much lighter as we left your office. We are pleased to advise you that David's application for LTD was approved the day after we met with you (sigh of relief)! Had it not been, we knew when were we would go for representation. We both want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. Your kindness will never be forgotten. With Warmest Regards, Lori and David C.”

  • Thank you a zillion times for your patience and time and absolutely helpful information.

    “Thank you a zillion times for your patience and time and absolutely helpful information. You've helped me understand my position with my disability insurance and payments so much better. There is some real comfort in feeling anchored in knowledge…of what is and what might be in the future. Thanks to you!”

  • I won the appeal.

    “Hi Glenn- This is a very belated thank you for your generous assistance and advice last summer, when I was appealing UBH's decision for my son. I won the appeal, at least for care at the partial hospitalization level (they wouldn't budge on residential, but the facility was accepting the partial care reimbursement for residential treatment). But the appeal was a great moral victory, and I think it's a great thing to have in the record, just in case he needs to go for treatment again. Thanks again for your generous help, I was very grateful for it. Wishing you a most happy Thanksgiving.”

  • I am a life you have touched. May God bless you richly.

    “After suffering with constant pain for nearly seven months, losing the job I loved and then being denied my long term disability, I was extremely discouraged when I began looking for help. With a few phone calls from Mr. Kantor to my insurance company, my long term disability was reinstated . The financial burden was lifted and I have hope again. I am a life you have touched. May God bless you richly.”
