We needed simple paperwork filed. She gave us a verbal estimate. Completely unresponsive to our many phone calls and emails for months. Not sure if she's a good attorney because she was unable to accomplish the task and does not communicate. My experience was that this was a waste of money and time. I do not recommend working with her. We discontinued working with her and coincidentally, her hours added up to exactly what we prepaid, yet our issue was not resolved.
My ex-husband ran a cash business for years, so when I took him to court by myself for child support, he only ended up having to give me a fraction of what he should have, since his tax returns made it seem like he barely made any money. Thanks to Heidi, I now receive about three times the amount that I did before, as well as increased contributions toward the kids' health insurance and unreimbursed medical and dental bills, and my ex is finally paying his fair share.
I contacted Heidi because my business was entering into a long-term purchasing agreement from a vendor and I needed someone to draft a contract that would protect me. Heidi was very knowledgeable and listened closely to my concerns. She even brought up a number of issues that hadn't occurred to me. I was happy with the final contract that she negotiated, but even happier later, when I had to sue the supplier for breach of contract. Both Heidi's initial contract and her litigation skills allowed me to recover what could have been substantial losses when the vendor failed to perform. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering entering into a business contract or who is in the process of initiating or defending a commercial litigation issue.
After six supposedly happy years as a stay-at-home mom, my wife left me and the kids for somebody else. She moved in with him and almost immediately, she tried to get custody of the kids and child support on a temporary basis (we all know where that leads). Heidi not only made sure she didn't get the upper hand, but also made sure that I had primary custody, rather than my nut-job ex. She still has visitation, but at least the kids are still with me, who makes them, and not my love-life, my first priority. I'm glad I hired Heidi, because she understands the dad's point of view, instead of just trying to get me to give credit to the mom, as a lot of female attorneys seem to do. I definitely had, and won, my day in court.
I live in the city and got a serious speeding ticket on a vacation in the Catskills. With Heidi's help, I had a minimal fine with no points on my license.
Heidi was extremely sympathetic and assisted me in obtaining an outcome that I didn't think was possible in my case.
