Collaborative work
James worked with my team on a Short Sale. He was very attentive to negotiation deadlines. With regard to email communication, he was quick with response time, even at odd hours of the day or night. He was proactive with distribution of information as he received it. This was one of many Short Sales I have done and James was a top notch professional in all aspects of the transaction. I would be extremely happy to work with him again.

Honest Attorney
Todd walked us through our commercial real estate purchase and settlement. It was as smooth as silk. He remains an active part of our business and a trusted confidant.

My experience
I have used Heise n Heise on several occasions and they have been top notch every time.I have used them for 3 commercial lease reviews.He will give you honest opinions about the least and make you see how some wording could have negative effects on you down the road.We used them on a residential short sale when we could get no where with the bank.They got the job done and took the stress off of us.We also used them for changing the title on a house we owned.If you are in the market for a lawyer or just need help with some kind of documents,look no further.

Great attorney who helped me and saved me money.
I recently sold a property and decided to hire an attorney to review the contract and settlement documents. Mr. Heise was very thorough in reviewing the contract and documents. If there was an issue I didn't understand or was unsure of, he explained it to me and put my mind at ease. The most important thing that Mr. Heise did was save me some money at the settlement table. I was being charged fees that were a little too high and some fees were even unnecessary. When Mr. Heise pointed this out to the settlement agent, they agreed to modify the settlement sheet. In the end the decision to seek an attorney to help me in this matter paid off.
