Heather L. Petitmermet | Denver Disability & ERISA Lawyer, Of CounselHeather Petitmermet originally joined the firm in 2005, immediately following graduation from law school.  After taking a brief family leave beginning in 2014, she returned in 2016 to resume her practice. Heather’s entire legal career has been dedicated exclusively to representing individuals whose claims for disability benefits have been wrongfully denied. She is well-versed in ERISA, non-ERISA, and PERA disability claims. Heather acknowledges that battling an insurance company for income replacement benefits while also dealing with a debilitating medical condition is incredibly stressful. She strives to make this process as easy as possible for her clients, keeping them well informed and explaining the process so they know what to expect. With her vast experience dealing with virtually every disability insurer in the country, Heather is adept at developing an individualized plan for each claim that provides the best chance of success. She has successfully submitted countless appeals to insurers disputing improper denials of disability benefits, and has litigated numerous claims in federal and state court.

Heather attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Wyoming for her undergraduate education, graduating magna cum laude in 2002 with a degree in Business Administration. Thereafter, she began law school at the University of Colorado School of Law.  During law school, Heather was an associate editor of the Colorado Journal of Environmental Law and Policy. She also held valuable internships for two judges in the Jefferson County court. Her studies also included a summer participating in a legal study abroad program in Valetta, Malta.

Heather is a member of the Denver Bar Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and is licensed to practice in all Colorado state and federal courts, including the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

When not in the office, Heather is busy juggling the schedules of her three active children.  She also enjoys spending as much time as possible in the mountains with her husband and kids, skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
