M. Susan Toth concentrates her practice on products liability, construction, and trucking matters. She has substantial experience representing clients throughout all phases of litigation before state and federal courts, arbitration panels, and administrative agencies. For over a decade she has successfully defended domestic and international manufacturers and distributors in complex products liability matters involving a wide range of products, including industrial machinery, construction equipment, infant products, and athletic equipment. Her experience includes class action and mass tort cases. She has represented commercial motor carriers against catastrophic injury claims and alleged FMCSA, FHWA, and DOT violations. Susan also defends general and sub-contractors in catastrophic injury and breach of contract cases.
While Susan has extensive experience with all phases of litigation, she seeks creative resolutions to disputes in an effort to minimize her client’s exposure to protracted litigation. She has also counseled clients on risk-avoidance measures, product recalls, and coordinated responses to governmental investigations.

She currently serves as a member of her law school’s Alumni Council.
