Attorney Heather Rutherford joined the staff at Warren Carlson & Moore earlier this fall.

Niwot's local law firm, Warren, Carlson & Moore LLC (WCM), is excited to introduce the community to their newest member of the team. Attorney Heather Rutherford has taken over much of the firm's family law practice and is thankful to have been welcomed both by the WCM family as well as the Niwot community at large. She joins attorneys Bruce Warren, Tom Moore and Laura Moore as well as paralegals Vicki Maurer and Hannah Valadez at the law firm, which was established by Warren in 1975.

Rutherford and her family have been in the Longmont-Niwot area since 2010, moving here from Denver after she completed law school at the University of Denver. "We just happened upon Niwot and have really loved everything that we've found here--the people, the schools, the parades... It's been a great place to raise our family," she said.

In addition to raising her family, she also worked in the area as a law clerk and as a contract attorney. When asked how she found her interest in law, she said, "I wanted to do something where I would be able to help people and also be doing something that was intellectually challenging."

Rutherford went on to say that she is grateful for the change that has come with joining WCM. She expressed appreciation for the support system she has found within the firm, emphasizing her fellow coworkers' (and even office dog's) willingness to help each other.

Mutual support and assisting others is very important to Rutherford. Not only has she focused on family law, but she has also dabbled in immigration law, citing both fields as interesting and involved. "It's really interesting because every case is different and we're trying to figure out a way for our client and the opposing party to go forward in a way that works for everybody," said Rutherford.

Rutherford's desire to be involved extends past her clients and coworkers. Not only is she very involved in the lives of her two elementary-age children, but in her community as well. In addition to being a member of the Niwot Community Semi-Marching Free Grange Band, she has volunteered to coach for Odyssey of the Mind, an organization focused on encouraging creativity and innovation in children grades K-12, and volunteers at WOW! Children's Museum in Lafayette.

Between her volunteer efforts and legal work, her involvement in the community as well as her commitment to her clients is evident. Rutherford certainly seems to be giving back to the community she cares about. "The experience here is great," she said.
