Mrs. Landauer graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in May 2010, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in History, as well as obtained a Certification in Peace and Conflict Studies.
She received her Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in May 2013. While in law school, Mrs. Landauer had the opportunity to work as a judicial intern for the Honorable Judge Jack Berryhill in the 1st Judicial District. Also during law school, she worked as a certified student attorney through the University of Denver Child Advocacy Practicum and the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center. Mrs. Landauer also interned with Metro Volunteer Lawyers, assisting clients in the Family Law Court Program. It was during her time at Metro Volunteer Lawyers that Heather developed a passion for family law.
Every domestic case is different and presents its own unique set of challenges. It is important to be open and honest with your attorney about the facts of your case as well as your ultimate goals, so the attorney and client can immediately begin to develop an effective strategy to achieve these goals.
It is also important to keep the “big picture” in mind, and not let your emotions control the proceedings. Emotions run high during a domestic relations case, and people often say or do things out of anger, frustration, or fear. Mrs. Landauer believes it is extremely important to stay focused and remember that patience is key. Even the most simple divorce could take months to complete. The longevity or complexity of the process should not lead to rash decisions.
Mrs. Landauer is an experienced litigator and is not afraid to take your case in front of a Judge. She also recognizes the benefits of settlement and knows that settlement is sometimes the best option. The facts of your case, as well as your ultimate goals, will determine which route to take, and Mrs. Landauer will strategically advise you every step of the way.
Mrs. Landauer is a regular volunteer with Metro Volunteer Lawyer's Family Law Unbundled Program which is designed to provide pro bono assistance to low-income individuals with their family law case.
Mrs. Landauer volunteers several times a year for Lawline 9, a call-in program offering legal information for the general public through 9News.
