Biography

Susanne Groebner knows that judges make decisions every day that affect the safety of our community and the lives, freedoms, and finances of those impacted by the court system. 

As an Assistant State’s Attorney, she helped protect and seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our community – victims of domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, kidnapping and sexual assault.

Susanne joined the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office after earning her Juris Doctorate from DePaul University College of Law in 2000 and gaining admission to the Federal Bar of the Northern District of Illinois and the Illinois State Bar Association.

For 17 years, Susanne worked her way up the ranks of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and served as lead attorney in a felony courtroom at the Rolling Meadows courthouse. She currently serves as a prosecutor in charge of a felony courtroom for the McHenry County State’s Attorney.

Susanne has spent her career advocating on behalf of victims who didn’t always have a voice. She has extensive courtroom experience, working ‘in the trenches’ on critical cases on a daily basis. 

Susanne also has unique civil litigation experience, working with single mothers in desperate need of child support from deadbeat dads, representing neglected children, and helping responsible parents seeking help to get their children back.  She has also worked to put children in loving adoptive homes.

Susanne also commits her time to her community when she is not in the courtroom.  She supports the Buddy Foundation in Arlington Heights, a shelter for homeless and abandoned animals.  She is a soccer mom and coach, a baseball mom, a Girl Scout mom, and a church mom. 

Her commitment to community and to justice make Susanne Groebner the right choice for Cook County Judge in the 2020 Election.
