When Susan Phillips worked in her father’s Joliet law office at the age of 16, a group of lawyers recognized her as Albert Krusemark‘s daughter one day. 

“One of the lawyers got off the elevator and he said, ‘your father is the most honorable man I’ve ever met, and his word is like gold.’ Turns out it was the judge,” Phillips said.
