Mylene Landry brings a broad set of skills to her practice in Hellmuth & Johnson’s family law practice. “My clients need a strong advocate, analytical thinker and an empathetic counselor in one,” explains Mylene. “Their legal issues are at once emotionally charged and often highly complex, and it’s my job to ensure that their dignity is protected, their wishes respected, and their interests looked after.”
Drawing on over 15 years of experience in the field, Mylene assists clients with legal matters related to child custody, child support, parenting time, spousal maintenance, division of property, complex business valuations and many other issues.
Addressing her clients’ needs effectively requires thorough preparation. “It’s important to be ready for anything, from amicable dissolutions to more adversarial ones,” she says. “For example, I have great faith in the value of seeking resolution through the Alternative Dispute Resolution Process, but I’m also ready to try my clients’ cases before a judge should the need arise.”
Since family law issues frequently spill over into other areas of life, Mylene works closely with her colleagues in Hellmuth & Johnson’s related practices, including real estate, insurance, estate planning, employment and others.
“Today more than ever, the field of family law can entail significant complexity, especially when working with blended and non-traditional families,” she says. “I’ve crafted my practice to enable clients to address the myriad of issues that can arise, and get through them as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible. The fact is, divorce is never easy, but having access to the full range of resources the firm brings to bear can make a real difference in the lives of my clients.”
Mylene earned her J.D. from William Mitchell College of Law. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, where she earned a B.S., with honors, in Economics and Political Science.
