I highly recommend Heather and her outstanding work. She is extremely knowledgeable about criminal defense issues in California and federal courts, and is very hard-working. She provides excellent representation for her clients, and is passionate about defending peaceful human beings facing incarceration as a consequence of drug prohibition. If I were facing serious charges, I would want her on my team.

I worked against Heather on dozens of cases when I was a prosecutor. Because of that I feel I'm in a unique position to give a candid review of her abilities as a defense attorney. Heather always stood up for her clients with uncommon zeal and skill. In argument she always presented well. I watched from the back of the courtroom once as she destroyed a prosecutor in trial, winning a not-guilty verdict for her client despite overwhelming evidence against her. A lot of times you find defense attorneys who have passion OR skill, but not both. Heather is a rare exception to that rule. I wholeheartedly endorse this attorney without reservation.
