Maslon is pleased to announce that Susan Link, partner and head of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, has been selected as a recipient of a 2018 Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA) Excellence Award. The Awards—given at the HCBA Annual Meeting—honor individual members for contributions to the profession and the community in six categories: Advancing Diversity and Inclusion, Improving Access to Justice, Providing Pro Bono Service, Mentoring in the Profession, Advancing Innovation in the Profession, and Serving the Association/Foundation. The "Advancing Innovation in the Profession" Award will be given to Susan in recognition of her work as a founder and program director of Minnesota Wills for Heroes for more than a decade, which provides quality, no-cost estate-planning services to the families of the state's first responders—EMTs, police, firefighters and more—who daily risk their lives to help others.
Susan practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, and trust administration. She works closely with families to plan the disposition of their assets, both during lifetime and at death, and to accomplish the optimal estate and gift tax planning for clients through wills, trusts, and other instruments. She was selected for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America® 2018; is recognized on the 2017 Top 100 Minnesota Super Lawyers® list and the 2017 Top 50 Women Minnesota Super Lawyers® list; and was named a Twin Cities Five Star Wealth Manager in 2013.
