5.0 stars 11 totalReview Heather Schmidt
Heather is the Shark! She has been very aggressive when needed and when appropriate. She has listened to my needs and concerns as the client, but also has been able to balance my requests, yet be diligent in looking out for my best interests as my attorney. I can't say enough because I was in a major, at least in my terms, a major custody battle and she prevailed or rather pulled through for me and my son! I can't thank her enough and spread the good word about Heather and her level of knowledge and expertise in family law regarding divorce and custody. It just flows and comes naturally for Heather-there is no hesitation! She knows her stuff! I don't believe I would be where I am today without Heather-I meant this! These words are expressed with the sincerest gratitude!
Why this review title? Because in addition to protecting me financially, Heather put to the highest standards the security and best interest of my two children and my own personal safety. During the whole process Heather showed dignity, respect, and compassion. She did this all with strong conviction and powerful knowledge.
I highly recommend her for any bread-winning mother going through a separation with children. Heather not only helped me with my divorce (slow and long process not at our doing), but also with spousal support challenges, child support and child custody issues. As we hit a few bumps through the "Injustice System", we were able to communicate well and move forward. Heather knows the system, processes and people, and was effective at guiding for the next upcoming step. She handles issues concisely and with care. Glad to have Heather on my side through such an unknown and emotional process.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Heather! She has been my attorney for five years and won my out of state relocation case in 2012 which is no easy undertaking. Heather guided me through the emotional rollercoaster of a custody case with honesty and understanding. She has always been well prepared and informed, there is no one I would rather represent my family and I!
I hired Healther to represent and guide me through my prenuptial agreement. She was confident, wise, knowledgeable, and honest through the whole process and I could trust her to give me the best advice possible. Heather was always available, and processed documents in a timely fashion. I feel very lucky to have Heather on my team.
Heather did an excellent job handling my divorce in 2005 both from a legal standpoint and also as a help to me during a very difficult time.
She has remained my family attorney over the years.
I consider her a good friend that I can call on for help and guidance or lunch
Heather did a great job handling my situation in a way that was considerate of my unique desires through the divorce process. She had a very balanced approach of explaining what my rights were and providing her legal advice, while remainnig accepting of me when I chose to vary from her recommended strategy. She stood at the ready to assist when I needed guidance and a tougher stance while always being considerate of my desired end goal.

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.
