Halleh T. Omidi counsels clients on the various aspects of dissolution of marriage cases, including complex asset division, allocation of parental responsibilities, child support, maintenance, paternity, post-decree modifications, appeals, and the like.

Halleh is experienced in litigation as often it is necessary for a case to be litigated. In 2013, Halleh completed the Houston Family Law Trial Institute, an elite family law trial seminar. However, when litigation is not required, she negotiates with opposing counsel/opposing parties, for an optimal outcome for her client's in highly contentious domestic matters.

Halleh was born and raised in Westminster, Colorado. Her experience and dedication to family law began even before she attended law school. She completed her undergraduate course work at the University of Colorado Boulder, graduating summa cum laude. During college, Halleh interned for the Boulder County Juvenile Court.

While in law school, she worked as a student attorney in the University of Colorado Juvenile Law Clinic representing children as a Guardian ad Litem in Dependency and Neglect cases. In addition, she also represented parents as Respondent Parent Counsel in Dependency and Neglect cases.

Halleh's experience in advocating for the best interests of the children is helpful in parental responsibility disputes because it gave her the tools to advise her clients of the outcomes that will benefit their children the most. Additionally, she spent time working on family law cases as a law clerk at McGuane and Hogan during law school. After law school, she worked at the Martin Law Firm representing clients in divorce, child custody, paternity, and post decree matters.  In recognition of her high standard of ethics and successful outcomes for her clients, Halleh holds an AVVO "Superb" rating and has been awarded the AVVO "Client's Choice Award" for the past several years. Halleh was also given the distinction of Rising Star in the 2016 and 2017 publications of Super Lawyers Magazine

She serves the community as a committee member and mentor for "Law School Yes We Can," as a regular volunteer for Metro Volunteer Lawyers, and as a guest instructor for a variety of courses and panels at the University of Colorado Law School.

When she is not helping families navigate the legal system, Halleh enjoys practicing yoga, watersports, hiking, reading and traveling.
