Linda Vanden Heuvel devotes a majority of her practice to representing individuals involved in family law disputes.  She has practiced family law for over twenty years representing parties in cases involving divorce, collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce, legal separation, annulments, mediation, custody and placement, maintenance, child support, property division, guardianships, adoption, grandparents rights, paternity, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, post-judgment modifications, domestic abuse and restraining orders.  She has served as a Guardian ad Litem on behalf of minor children and incapacitated adults.  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 exemplary 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 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 sixteen 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 to which they are entitled after being involved in a personal injury accident.

Milwaukee County violated the First Amendment Rights of deputy sheriffs by allowing a representative of a Christian peer support group to speak at mandatory employee meetings. The ruling affirms that a sheriff cannot force members of the department to set through a religious presentation. The ruling affirmed that a government's actions violates the establishment clause of the constitution if it has any of the following characteristics: a non-secular purpose; the principal or primary affect of advancing or inhibiting religion; or fostering excessive government entanglement with religion.
