2009 Arthur K Marshall Award
SUSAN T. HOUSE

Susan T. House (B.A., Wellesley College, 1971, J.D., UCLA, 1975) is a partner with Hahn & Hahn, LLP, in Pasadena, California.  She has practiced law with Hahn & Hahn throughout her career in the areas of estate and tax planning, probate and trust administration and conservatorships and guardianships.  Since 2000, she has also served frequently as a mediator in trust and estates disputes.  She is certified as a specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law by the State Bar of California. 

Apart from authoring numerous articles and chapters in CEB books, Ms. House was a co-author with her career-long mentor, William S. Johnstone, Jr., on both the second edition of California Conservatorships (CEB, 1983) and California Conservatorships and Guardianships (CEB, 1990).  She was Co-Editor with Bruce S. Ross on both the first (1997) and second (2008) editions of The Guide to the California Rules of Professional Conduct published by the Trusts & Estates Section of the State Bar of California.

Ms. House has lectured frequently for state and local bar associations, CEB, the USC Probate & Trust Conference, the USC Tax Institute, the UCLA-CEB Estate Planning Institute and numerous local bar associations.  She has served on the Planning Committee for the USC Tax Institute and Probate & Trust Conference and on the Advisory Committee and as Co-Chair of the UCLA-CEB Estate Planning Institute.

For eleven years she served on the Executive Committee of the Trusts & Estates Section of the State Bar of California, during which time she served as Editor of the California Trusts and & Estates Quarterly (1993-1995) and as Chair (1998-1999).  Her bar activities have also included service on the Executive Committee of the Trusts & Estates Section of the L. A. County Bar Association. 

Since her election as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) in 1987, Ms. House has served as a frequent ACTEC speaker, as California State Chair, as a Regent of the College, and as a member of the Elder Law, Membership Selection, Professional Responsibility and Program Committees.  She is also a Delegate to the Joint Editorial Board for the Uniform Trust and Estate Acts.

Most importantly, she has been happily married to Jim House since 1971 and has a wonderful daughter, Allison.  Their love and support, together with the support and encouragement of her colleagues at Hahn & Hahn, have made her professional career possible.  Without all of them, she would never have been honored as a recipient of the Arthur K. Marshall Award.
