Heather A. Tattershall has been working with clients in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and El Dorado Counties for over twenty-one years.
Heather is an experienced family law attorney and mediator working with individuals and families experiencing the end of a marriage or having post-dissolution disputes.  She encourages mediation and Collaborative Practice, as a means to resolve party differences.  However, should litigation be necessary, Heather has the skill and experience to assist you.  She has extensive experience in a wide range of family law matters, including dissolution of marriage, legal separation, child custody and visitation, restraining orders, property and business divisions, child and spousal support and step-parent adoptions. 

In addition to traditional full service representation, Heather and the other members of her firm can provide limited scope representation and consultation-only services.  With limited scope representation, you can hire Heather or one of her associates to prepare necessary documents, provide advice on proceeding in pro per (without an attorney), attend a hearing or to otherwise assist you in a very limited aspect of your case. 

Heather has been practicing law in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and El Dorado Counties since 1995, representing individuals before the court, as well as through mediation and Collaborative Practice.   In addition to her litigation experience, Heather has received extensive training in alternative dispute resolution methods that aid her in resolving conflicts without the need for judicial intervention.
