Ms. Schmidt helped(and is still helping) me through the difficult, confusing and emotional aspects of my divorce. I don't know what I would have done without her. My case involved a great deal of not-your-run-of the mill complications that I had not originally anticipated. As things got more complicated, Heather stepped up and guided me through the experience, as well as providing me with additional resources. She handled everything(even my emotional outbursts) with just the right balance of professionalism and empathy. She also handled each road block with expertise, not allowing me to give up.
Heather was recommended to me by a friend. I was ending a marriage of 36 years and knew that it was going to be a long process. Heather made this life changing event less difficult through her genuine empathy,education and knowledge of how to deal with difficult people. I am very thankful that my friend gave me Heather's name. She helped make my life much easier through this difficult time.
Recommendation - definitely; going through a divorce is devasting in its self, but when you have a well-established, trustworthy lawyer makes a big difference. At times when needed, Heather was there for reassurance. With her understanding and her guidance she made the journey much more easier.
I cannot not say enough wonderful things about Heather Schmidt. After already using two previous lawyers, with no resolution, Heather was referred to me. She was a breath of fresh air. I was going through a very hard divorce after 20 years and had already been through the ringer over and over again and again until I met Heather. She cut to the chase. She knew her stuff and for the first time in a long time, I felt like everything was going to be ok. She reassured me of that and she was right. Had I met Heather prior to other lawyers, I would have had less of a headache and would have gotten through the process alot quicker. I also didn't feel like Heather was a stranger as I went through this. She made me feel comfortable from the start. Its already a tough situation to begin with but she made me forget about all of that. As I began meeting with Heather, I felt myself become more at ease in knowing that she was going to make everything ok and she did. I would definitley refer Heather to a friend or anyone else in need of a tenacious lawyer, in a heartbeat. She is a fantastic lawyer and also a wonderful person.
