Extremely Competent & Knowledgeable
Consulted with Attorney Heiser over a frustrating situation at the workplace. Attorney Heiser was extremely helpful in evaluating my situation and making me understand the process. I was most impressed with his ability to get a sense of my work related issue and even before I arrived, he familiarized himself completely and knew all the players involved. I highly recommend Attorney Heiser without hesitation. It is most comforting to know he is there if I wish to pursue my case. Thanks, Ted.

Ted was much more than a "lawyer" in the case we were involved in. At times, he was a coach, a confidante, a mentor, an advisor and a friend. he didn't skirt aaround tough issues. He dealt in the truth at all times and I beleive that is what he consistently seeks. Ted is the consumate communicator. He can summarize complex issues seemingly with ease and get to the bottom line, the key point. He stays on point. I highly recommend Ted.

Executive Director
As the head of a non-profit I was amazed at how quickly Ted grasped the details of our particular case. He is very intelligent and intuitive and worked much more quickly in the information gathering phase of this case than I am used to. Ted is empathetic, direct and honest and inspires trust. Ted's knowledge of the law is awesome. His communication skills are excellent. He understands the stress that lawsuits bring on and I appreciated that I never had to wait to hear back from him. Even when he was in court, he called at the end of the day to answer my concerns. I would recommend Ted to everyone.

Client Review
I would like to keep my appraisal simple. Ted is the same person in and out of the court room environment. He speaks to facts and only facts. He is fair with those he comes in contact with, whether they are on the witness stand or behind a desk. I saw him as a very mature, even tempered attorney and would never hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
