also known as Denise D. VanLanduyt
Denise has close to 15 years of experience and is well known in the family law community. She represents clients in all matters of family law, acting as both a lawyer and advocate and guardian ad litem. She is also a frequent speaker on a wide range of family law topics, specifically legal issues impacting the LGBT community. She is a certified and registered mediator and arbitrator with the State of Georgia and has acted on a neutral in hundreds of family law cases.
Denise's contributions to the local legal community include her co-founding the Family Law Section of the DeKalb Bar Association and then going onto serve as Chair of the Family Law Section for two (2) consecutive years. She is a past President of the DeKalb Bar Association and currently serves as President of the Board for the DeKalb Volunteer Lawyers Foundation.
Additional Client testimonials:
I have served as a mediator when Denise represented a client in the mediation. She is knowledgeable, prepared, an effective advocate for her client and also understands the benefits of reaching a settlement of the issues through mediation as opposed to the client enduring a more expensive and prolonged battle in court.
Denise is an excellent attorney and runs a great firm. She worked very hard to ensure my case was properly and thoroughly presented and argued. Her hard work and due diligence won the case for me. I would highly recommend her to others needing legal counsel.
Denise goes above and beyond. She and her staff researched other cases very effectively to present my case. She is an advocate for child protection and both my daughter and I feel safer having her on our side. I would highly recommend her!
I am actually a family law attorney myself, and turned to Denise when I needed help on a personal relationship matter. She exceeded every expectation.
Cash, Check, Credit Card
I endorse this lawyer. Denise is professional and has an excellent reputation in the legal community. I share office space with her but I have experience with her work for several years prior to having an office with her.
