Ms. Wallace is a partner in the Seattle office of Susman Godfrey, where she has practiced since 2007. She has a diverse commercial practice – representing both plaintiffs and defendants, individuals and Fortune 500 companies, and advocating for her clients in federal and state court as well as in arbitration.
Ms. Wallace is known for her devotion to her clients and her ability to lead through inspiration. Ms. Wallace gets results using strategic problem-solving and outside-the- box thinking. This is nowhere more apparent than in her bringing the firm’s successful patent litigation practice to the International Trade Commission, where Ms. Wallace has now been involved in several intellectual property investigations.
Ms. Wallace received her B.A. from Amherst College, magna cum laude, with a double major. She received her J.D. from the University of Michigan, cum laude, where she served as an Articles Editor on the Editorial Board of the Michigan Law Review. Ms. Wallace moved to Seattle to clerk first for the Honorable Betty Binns Fletcher, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and then for the Honorable John C. Coughenour, United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.
In 2014, inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s best-seller Lean In, Ms. Wallace worked with the King County chapter of Washington Women Lawyers (“KCWWL”) and Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association of Seattle (“MAMAS”) to start Lean In Circles for women attorneys throughout Seattle. Ms. Wallace’s own Lean In Circle continues to meet monthly.
