“My motivation as a family law attorney is fueled by my passion to preserve and promote loving, supportive environments for our children and to secure our clients’ financial stability. The law is dynamic and so are families.  Understanding this, my practice and career are solely dedicated to addressing the challenges or adversity  inherent within these dynamics.”  

“While a solid understanding of the law is fundamental, a family law attorney can only provide successful representation if she possesses sound, rational judgment, meticulous attention to detail and the ability to communicate effectively with your client, opposing counsel and the court.”

Biography: 

Brandi Petterson was born in St. Augustine, Florida and grew up in Palm Coast, Florida.  She graduated from the University of Florida in 2003.  While she remains a devoted Florida Gator fan and enjoys visits back to the beach, she decided to make Colorado her home because of the wonderful people and the beautiful scenery.  Brandi graduated with both her L.L.M. and J.D. in 2007 from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

Prior to becoming a partner with Sauer & Petterson Family Law,  Brandi was a Senior Associate Attorney with a large family law firm in the Denver Metro area and focused exclusively on family law matters.  Previously, Brandi was a Judicial Law Clerk Fellow to the Honorable Judge Hannen of the 18th Judicial District.  Her tenure as a practicing family law attorney and judicial clerk has not only lead to years of practical and legal experience, but has also provided her with direct insight to the bench, which she continues to leverage to this day.

In addition to representing parties involved in divorce and family law cases, Brandi volunteers as a Guardian Ad Litem with the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, which allows her to make recommendations to the court concerning the best interests of the children.

Unique to Brandi’s practice is her keen ability to focus exclusively on her clients.  She pursues their interests as if they were her own, while coupling years of experience, to reach a successful representation.  At times, it may be in the client’s best interest to settle a case through mediation or other negotiations.  Of course, when settlement is not an option, Brandi is an experienced litigator in all courts surrounding the Denver Metro area.

Families can take various forms.  They are ever changing whether it be through the addition of a child, divorce, change in custody, passing, or the like.  In times of change, trust will be the cornerstone of any attorney you may employ to represent you.  Brandi feels that trust is earned in every case, which she builds through knowledge, experience, voice, action and persistence.  

When not advocating on behalf of her clients, Brandi enjoys all that Colorado has to offer, from the lakes to the mountains to family and friends.
