Susan Daya Hamwi,Esq.
Founder of Dynamic Family Resolution
Since childhood, Susan Daya Hamwi has dreamed of building peace on earth. Putting her young heart into action, Susan became a lawyer and with inspiration from her seven-year-old son, Joey, used her law practice as a service that helps families peacefully heal conflict.
In 1991, Susan started her career as a lawyer in private practice, at which time she also served as the court-appointed attorney for the Kenyon Juvenile Justice Center in South Central Los Angeles. There, she represented minors in court proceedings while also working with families and liaison officers to create the best solution for those children in their family situation. She also handled numerous divorce, custody and dependency cases. She carried on this work in 2000, becoming a mentor to incarcerated youth at the California Youth Authority in Ventura, CA. In 2001, Susan received her Kundalini Yoga teacher's training certification. She serves as a volunteer for Yoga for Youth, a non-profit organization that teaches Yoga and Meditation to pregnant teenage mothers and to minors in youth detention facilities. Susan also teaches children's yoga.
Susan holds a Juris Doctorate Degree from Loyola Law School and a B.A. in Law and Society from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She has been a member of the State Bar of California since 1989 and completed the LA County Bar Association's mediation training program in 2001.
