Tana Landau is a valued member of the family law team of attorneys at Fleischer and Associates. Her personal background provides her unique insight into the challenges faced by her family law clients.
Landau's own parents were divorced when she was a baby. She understands first hand how divorce impacts the lives of the people involved, including the couple themselves, their children, and extended family and friends. She sees her role as helping the client handle all of the issues that can arise during the legal process as quickly and painlessly as possible, ideally with the minimum litigation necessary.
Landau considers the resolution of custody arrangements her first priority in family law matters whenever children are involved.
"Divorce is difficult for everyone," says Landau. Most people just want it to be over with to move on with their lives. But there are always concerns that people receive what they deserve in the way of legal protections, support and custody arrangements. My role it to be sure those concerns are addressed."
Landau works in a hands-on fashion with her clients. She prefers a face to face meeting to a phone call, and a telephone conversation over an email. "Clients want to know whether you care about them and their case," says Landau. They need to be assured they aren't just one client lost among the crowd."
Landau received her law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law, where she earned several academic achievement awards. She served as Vice President of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and was specifically recognized for her excellence in animal law.
Landau's diverse educational background includes a deep background in behavioral psychology that serves her well in her family law practice. Prior to receiving her law degree, she attended Central Washington University's graduate program in experimental psychology and Florida Atlantic University's graduate program in biology and animal behavior. Landau earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in her home state of New Jersey at Rutgers University, graduating with honors.
