Posted by a Family client,
Hired Heather as family attorney in 2013, we filed for custody of husband's 14 yr old daughter. She was a professional contact with me before 2013, and I built a strong relationship with her in the custody case, paid her a lot of money. My husband and I were going to separate for 6 months (addition of his daughter didn't work out), and last week she served me with "gotcha divorce papers." and said was representing my husband against me. However, I was and still am a paying client of hers as our family attorney. Adding insult to injury, she mailed me a random, picture of scare wolves when she sent the divorce paperwork. I just thought that added insult to injury. She encourages all mediation and communication through her (even asking my husband if he washed the dog with something different). As a personal friend, client of hers, socializing in the same circle, I would have expected her to send us to mediation, or let it sit out the 6 months. She's making $250 an hour (husbands dime) for me to talk to him. But I got the hint, when she served papers 1 month after separation with a card of attack wolves, that I'm in the system to go through divorce. I have filed with the WA State Bar regarding the conflict of interest with documents of what I paid her, friendly emails, and her referring to me as her client. I hope they will take her off the divorce case. It's just wrong to be rude to people. I sent her 3 referrals too. She went from being our family attorney (case still going on), to representing my husband against me. And with the personal relationship- I hope the state Bar will see in my favor and remove her from the case. Office is old and beat up. I would not recommend Heather Young as an attorney.
Posted by Corey, a Divorce client,
I am very dissapointed in Heather Youngs ability to resolve issues regarding non compliance of parenting plan. She is too focused on bringing both sides together. Rather than sticking up for her clients rights and needs. Wasted thousands of dollars in going back and forth with my ex through attorney and still nothing was resolved. And today on Mothers Day I have not skyped with my son for 1/2 a year and my phone has been unwarrantly blocked. I have no communication with my son between visitations.

I used her as my attorney for my divorce and I got everything that I wanted and more! She is wonderful. I have her on speed dial...
Posted by a Child Support client,
Ms. Young has handled 4 child support adjustments for me in the past 10 years, with excellent results. She is very fair, pleasant to work with, and always responds in a timely manner. I live out of state, and depend on her to represent me in court, which she's done very well.
