Suzanne Meehle | Managing Partner
Suzanne Meehle, Esq.
Suzanne D’Aunoy Meehle knows what it’s like to build a business based on a dream. To help pay for the costs of college in her hometown of Huntsville, Alabama, she turned her love of cooking into a side business; she catered small weddings and parties throughout her hometown and beyond.
After college, Suzanne started her career as a Software Systems Engineer and Database Administrator for healthcare and technology firms. She also built another small business for herself as an independent consultant, serving high profile clients such as OrlandoJobs.com, Office Depot and VeArd Computer Research.
After working 12 years in the software industry, Suzanne decided to follow her true calling. She always told herself she would attend law school if she won the lottery. Rather than wait for fate to open the door, though, she took the initiative to open it herself. In 2003, Suzanne enrolled in Barry University, Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law, in Orlando, Florida. In 2006, she graduated in the top 10 of her class.
After law school, Suzanne spent more than three years at a large, multi-office law firm. In 2009, though, once again, she chose to follow her heart and, she opened her own practice.
Suzanne’s passion is helping small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs. Her history with her own small businesses has been the cornerstone for her work today. She believes in helping others achieve what she has achieved: a small business that competes in a marketplace full of options.
In addition to running her full-time law practice, Suzanne teaches courses on representing small businesses at Solo Practice University, as well as writing a monthly column for the site. Suzanne also has created a free seminar series called, “Your Business Toolbox,” to help local business owners answer common questions about everything from forming and selecting business entities to business taxes and more.
Suzanne has been honored with the highest rating, AV Preeminent, from Martindale-Hubbell, one of the most recognized attorney peer-review services. She is a member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando (HCCMO), The Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce (Orlando Inc.).
