Susan Brichler Trujillo, partner, Quarles & Brady

Trujillo serves as chair of the Quarles & Brady Phoenix Health Law Group. Her practice focuses on health law, litigation and dispute resolution.

Advice: “Understand people – and how to effectively manage human relationships. Also know that empathy plays a huge role in effective leadership.”

Surprising fact: “I have a giant – GIANT – ax hanging on the wall in my office from the United Phoenix Firefighters Association and Phoenix Fire Department. They awarded it to me several years ago as a thank you gift for going above and beyond the call of duty volunteering with Wills for Heroes.”
