J.D., MBA, LL.M., Attorney at Law

DeWitt PLCC

Suzanne DeWitt has marched to the beat of her own drum her entire life. A bright and ambitious overachiever, she loved the thrill of racing off-road dirt bikes and motorcycles as much as excelling in school. She graduated from the University of Miami and earned a B.A. in Business Management and Organization; an M.B.A.; a J.D. followed by an LL.M. in Taxation, and obtained a certificate of specialization in International Taxation.

Prior to entering into private practice in 2009 and launching DeWitt PLLC, Suzanne was extensively involved in developing and implementing creative and effective federal and international tax strategies and restructurings for high-net-worth individuals, Global 2000 and Fortune 500 companies.

Suzanne then became a single mother of two children conceived via surrogacy.

According to her latest plan, twins will complete her family this fall. “It’s something I am very proud of. Many women’s biological clocks are drowned out by their professional clocks. There’s nothing keeping women from having what they want these days. I champion other women who have been afraid to talk about infertility,” she says.

“I’m likely the new type of tax attorney who is more of an artist. I take a canvas and I paint a picture, which serves as the framework for tax minimization. I pride myself on knowing the rules and taking a practical, more entrepreneurial approach. I don’t tell my clients what they shouldn’t be doing. I tell them what they should be doing. I’m a deal maker, not a deal breaker.”
