"I grew up in a courtroom because my dad was an attorney, and he often took me with him. There wasn't anything better than going to court and watching Dad in action. He really cared about his clients.

When my dad retired from his law practice, at age 75, he became a volunteer guardian ad litem working on child abuse cases. He worked hard to find out the truth and strongly believed that most of the time, justice would prevail. He was the finest person I've ever known.

I've been a nurse for 36 years. I am proud and happy to combine my nursing with the law, the two fields that I treasure, in my Legal Nurse Consulting business, The Sharp Group. My mission is to serve my legal clients with the same quality of service that I have always given to my patients. After all, this is what I learned from my dad."

Suzi Sharp is the Principal of The Sharp Group. She received her baccalaureate degree in nursing from the University of Illinois in 1965 and has been actively working as a registered nurse ever since.
