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.

  • There are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us.

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”
