PARTNER & ATTORNEY

Trudy H. House

While earning a Bachelor of Arts in French from Arizona State University, Trudy House relocated to northern France where she finished her degree through a study abroad program. After teaching English as a foreign language for two years, Trudy returned to Arizona to attend law school.

During her three years at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, Trudy gained experience through internships and clerking positions including the United States Attorney’s Office, United States District Court, North & Barron, a private law firm, and a summer position with the United States Army Judge Advocate General Corps, in Furth, Germany. Through the law school, Trudy held the position of Coordinator for the Advocacy Program for Battered Women and volunteered with the Homeless Shelter Project.

Trudy began her legal career as a criminal prosecutor with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, in Phoenix, Arizona. She moved to Colorado Springs in 1994, where she continued to work in the criminal law field with the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Trudy extended her practice areas by establishing a solo practice, of which the majority was as Guardian ad Litem in Dependency and Neglect cases, but also included criminal defense, domestic relations, and as a court attorney for Woodland Park.

Trudy completed mediation training and regularly volunteered her time as a mediator for the Better Business Bureau, Small Claims Court, and the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office. She worked as a staff attorney for the El Paso County Child Support Services Unit for three years, before focusing her practice on assisting clients through the difficult process of divorce.

Divorce can be a difficult and emotionally stressful time for everyone involved. Because every case is unique, Trudy will take the time to listen to you and understand your goals in the legal process. She treats all clients with compassion and respect, guides them through every step of the case, and vigorously protects their interests while maintaining high ethical and professional standards.
