Heather White

Family Law Attorney

Heather White joined Halligan LLC after leaving the flatlands of Illinois for the mountains of Colorado, excited to continue her career in family law. Heather enjoys the daily opportunity to interact with people of all walks of life, which family law provides.

A psychology major at Saint Louis University, Heather decided on a family law career after discovering mediation while studying at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She found mediation engaging and satisfying. “Watching someone realize they want the same thing the other person wants” is the essence of her mediation philosophy. Heather’s passion comes from watching a client “move from hostility to agreement because they know it’s the best course for their family.”

Heather has a seemingly innate sense of asking the right questions – of her clients, the other side, the court. Heather considers family law “a perfect hybrid between an out of court settlement and litigation.” Because she learned to mediate early in law school, she has a firm grasp on when it’s going to be useful and when stronger measures are warranted.

Heather enjoys hiking and biking in the mountains with her husband, though she discovered altitude sickness in the process. Not something she had to worry about in Chicago. She is equally enjoying the culture and diversity of her new home, Denver, and is excited for the many new opportunities soon to come in post-pandemic times.
