  • Jared Loyal Haddock

    I endorse this lawyer. Heather is an amazing person and a truly great attorney. She is one of the most dedicated and hardest working people I know and her accomplishments never cease to amaze me, even though I've known her since our law school days together. Heather is truly gifted and excels at her endeavors with a tenacious spirit, but does so gracefully and with apparent ease. She is likely to be the smartest and most capable attorney in virtually any gathering, but would just as likely sit back and let others discover that at their own peril.

  • James L. Spagnuolo Jr.

    Heather is a young attorney that has wisdom and knowledge well beyond the number of years she has been in practice. I am often amazed at how she has a better grasp on many areas of the law that other lawyers with two to three times as many years in practice don't.
