Dr. Suzanne Gilman, Esq., FCLM:
Legal Guidance for Dental Professionals

As an attorney and dentist, I understand the legal issues that face dental practices, and I focus my law practice on meeting those needs. I have a first-hand understanding of both the practice of dentistry and how the law affects it. In my dental career, I was an associate, a dental resident, and a practice owner who started her practice “from scratch” and then sold it. I was also a dental education instructor, dental magazine article author, and an officer in the local dental society. I know the "drill."

Additionally, I understand how the decisions you make today will impact how you practice dentistry or dental hygiene for years to come.

When you hire me, you will work directly with me. I know the unique needs of dental providers, and will return emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I represent clients in New Jersey legal matters only.
