Susan Murphy-Milano BIO

Susan Murphy Milano is a specialist and expert in intimate partner violence and works nationally with corporations, faith based organizations, domestic violence programs, law enforcement and prosecutors providing technical and consulting services in “high risk” domestic violence and stalking related cases. Her principal objective is to intervene before a victim is seriously injured or killed. Utilizing a procedure which she devised, The Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit,© Murphy Milano’s clients are all still alive--a statistic that is remarkable considering the distinct increase in intimate partner homicides.

Susan witnessed her father, a decorated Chicago Violent crimes Detective, brutally and violently attack her mother repeatedly. The words “If you leave I will kill you” turned into reality the night Susan walked into her childhood home and found her mother murdered and her father in the next room dead from a self-inflicted gun-shot wound to the head. Since the murder-suicide, Susan has made significant changes in the way the world looks at violence in and outside the home. This quest for justice was instrumental in the passage of the Illinois Stalking Law and the Lauternberg Act.


In addition, she and her work have been prominently featured in newspapers, magazines, radio and television including: The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Radio, ABC’S 20/20, Justice Files, E-True Hollywood, CNN, Sunday Today Show Profile, Women’s Day, Family Circle, US News and World Report to name only a few. She has frequently participated in guest media commentary panels on major news programs and recently appeared on the A&E Biography of Drew Peterson. She is a well known radio host, regularly hosting The Susan Murphy Milano Show,“Time’s Up!” on the Zeus Media Network, also she appears on Crime Wire on BlogTalk Radio, and a regular weekly co-host on nationally syndicated, The Roth Show.

Her books (Defending Our Lives, Moving Out, Moving On and Times Up!) and corresponding strategies are taught world-wide and used by law enforcement, social workers, attorneys, health care workers, human resource departments and domestic violence agencies.
