Why Use Compass Legal Services?
Ms. Forrler believes that there are issues worth fighting over and others that may be best to walk away from. Fighting in court is not always the answer and can frequently cost more than is awarded in the long-run. Sometimes, though, the issue in dispute is priceless. In those instances, the approach to litigation should be carefully considered.
Common opinion holds that attorneys are greedy and want only to pad their own wallets regardless of the effect on their clients. Thankfully, that is not true of many attorneys, especially in Kitsap County. However, there are attorneys out there that keep the stereotype in circulation. As a wife and mother of three, Heather Forrler understands the need to be wise when spending money. For this reason, she also feels one should be wise when earning other’s peoples’ hard earned money.
