My last lawyer messed up my divorce. The house was awarded to me in my divorce. The decree was strangely worded, where it sounded like if I did not sign over the title to her car, that I had to forfeit the home and sell it, and split the money with my ex. My ex left the car for several years in my driveway, while working overseas. i was just doing a favor, and storing the car! When she came back she expected me to put the house up for sale and give her half! HOW IS THAT FAIR?!?!? i had been making all the payments for years, and the house is in a trendy area, and is now worth several times what it was. Chris got the whole thing worked out for me! great job
My husband and I hired Mr. Heise to do our estate planning work. I liked the no nonsense way he worked with us. He said down with us, and basically made a grid of the estate planning documents, how much each would cost, and then deisgnated what order he suggested we buy them in, in case we could not afford all them at one time. I liked the "no haggle" pricing. We have also used him on a few other family issues. I gave him only four stars because we had to wait several days before we could get an opening in his schedule. otherwise, like i said, we have used him for other stuff too.
I was a difficult client that wanted to avoid conflict at all cost, however, it was hard to make ends meet not getting any help from my ex....except every once in a great while.!! Mr. Heise helped me realize that allowing my able bodied ex to not pay child support was only making life harder on my daughter. My daughter and I are doing much better getting the monthly support we deserve.
I hired Mr Heise to handle my trust/will. He was not available to answer my questions, staff constantly made excuses for him. In the end, I had to go to a different, more knowledgeable attorney.
I hired Chris Heise as my attorney in my divorce. The first time, I lost custody of my girls, and lost my house. I wish I hired Attorney Heise the first time! He went back and got custody of my girls, and I became the primary parent. Chris Heise also got my house back for me. My ex had given away a lot of stuff, and the judge even made him go deliver all the stuff to my house.
Hired Mr. Heise to represent m e in divorce and custody matter. He and his staff became a part of my family and did everything in their power to advocate for me and my children, even to the point of midnight calls on the cell phone during stressful situation. Got everything I asked for and actually a little more than expected. I appreciate all of the hard work for me and my kids.
I did hire Mr. Heise to represent me. I would not recommend him to anyone. I paid him over 1,ooo dollars to file a case for me in small claims court. After I paid him...he never filed the claim. All I ever got was the run around from his paralegal. After many attempts to contact him went unanswered..over 17 months of trying to reach him and see why case was never filed. I sent him registered letters, emails, phone calls etc. NEVER returned any of my attempts to contact him. Had a hard time getting my file back as well. I believe that this is totally unacceptable...he was too represent me and we had a contract. He just took my money...once he had over a thousand dollars...he never ever contacted me again. I am following up with grievances...
