Linda S. Vanden Heuvel devotes a majority of her practice to representing individuals involved in family law matters. She has practiced family law for over thirty years representing parties in cases involving divorce, collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce, legal separation, annulments, mediation, custody and placement, maintenance, child support, property division, grandparents rights, paternity, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, post-judgment modifications, domestic abuse and restraining orders.
Linda is a skilled litigator, but also has the ability to negotiate favorable settlements on behalf of her clients. She saves her clients time, money and emotional distress through settlement negotiations, but is an renowned litigator with the ability to effectively litigate cases if settlement efforts fail. Linda is skilled at handling complex divorces including large estates, contentious custody/placement disputes and property division litigation.
Linda S. Vanden Heuvel also regularly practices in the area of personal injury. Linda litigated one of Washington County’s largest personal injury cases, a 5.9 million dollar award on behalf of a thirteen year old girl critically injured in a West Bend, Wisconsin, automobile accident.
As a personal injury lawyer, Linda sees the human side; the injured bodies, the broken bones, the emotional trauma. Linda recognizes that an injury to one person injures the whole family. Linda works hard to obtain the compensation her clients need and deserve after being injured.
