Our Favorite Attorney
We've been clients of Attorney Gifford's since she started practicing law. She's helped us with many issues, Property transfers, Estate planning, "bumps" in the road when our kids started driving, handling my parents estate and represented us with a Logging issue. When I call her office with a question and the Attorney isn't available, the Office Manager, Diane, gets the information requested and calls me in a timely fashion. Our family couldn't be happier with Attorney Gifford and highly recommend her. :)

Amazing Child Support Attorney in Gloversville NY
Working with Heidi on my child custody case was a blessing. Her compassion and determination were unwavering as she navigated through the complexities of the legal system on my behalf. Heidi's professionalism and advocacy helped me feel supported and heard every step of the way, which made a world of difference in such a sensitive situation. I can't thank her enough for all she did to secure a positive outcome for my family. It is great to find such a wonderful lawyer in Fulton County, NY.

Unresponsive, Does Not Represent You To The Fullest.
Hired for a divorce. She has NOT proceeded with the correct paperwork nor represented me and my children and OUR best interest. Personally met with another attorney that specializes in divorce and was told that nothing has been done properly and things that should have been filed for the courts were not even done at all. The office management is poor. They do not respond to questions via telephone or email in a timely manner nor do they even answer your questions. If you want someone that will represent you to the fullest, do not go with Heidi Gifford.
