Susan Pochal - Past Chair
Pochal & Pochal, LLC
Susan is an attorney in private practice at Pochal & Pochal, LLC in Mystic, Connecticut. She practices primarily in the areas of Estate and Tax Planning (Wills/Trusts), Probate, Elderlaw and Real Estate. She began practicing law in Massachusetts in 1985 and moved to this area in 1991, working with local law firms, before opening her own practice.
Susan assists her clients with the challenging issues that face them, such as long term care planning, and planning for incapacity, death and taxes. She also handles real estate matters, wills and trusts. Some of her most challenging work involves family feuds in the Probate process, and “after death” tax planning, a time when most clients don’t realize they have options.
Aside from being a busy attorney, Susan is also the mother of three children ages 22, 20 and 17. Their activities keep her on the run, but she also finds time to give back to her community by being involved in a number of volunteer activities. She currently serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, is Vice-Chair of the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, heads the Hunger Task Force for the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, and serves as an Advisor to the Southeastern Connecticut Women’s Network. She has also served on the Board of Directors for the Charter Oak Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Board of Directors of the Estate and Tax Planning Council of Eastern Connecticut, and nine years on the Foundation Board of Three Rivers Community College, including three years as its President.
