Heather Ryan Hobgood took my case and worked with me with the utmost respect and care. She understood that I had children involved and showed that she would do what she could to ensure the best for myself and my children. Heather took the time to get to know me personally and understand the entire situation. She approached my case with empathy but firmness. Heather guided me and made sure I had all information before making a decision or responding. She educated me on the process and what to expect so that I didn't have surprises. If there was a rating higher than "excellent" then Heather would deserve that. Heather took the time following up with me and always considered my feelings and emotions. SHE IS AN INCREDIBLE ATTORNEY!!! Thank you Heather for everything!

From the moment Heather became involved in our case, you could immediately tell that finding a fair and reasonable resolution was more important to her than anything else. Her dedication to finding the facts and handling every aspect of our case ethically and responsibly was unwavering. In fact, I've never met someone so passionate about doing things the right way and ALWAYS keeping the best interest of her client in mind. Her thoroughness and attention to detail was unparalleled, and through it all, I never once got the sense that we weren't a priority. Not for one instant would I hesitate recommending Heather Hobgood to anyone looking for representation during difficult times, knowing the immense care and thought she would devote towards becoming a trusted ally and friend in a desperate time of need.

I don't know how to erase the positive review I made of Heather. I should have waited till my case was concluded to do the review in the first place. When I retained Heather FIVE YEARS ago it was for a simple modification of visitation with my ex wife. This is where I got ran down the rabbit hole. I was told that I needed to get child support since I had custody and let the courts find her in contempt to build my case. This continued for the next three years and she was found in contempt 14 times of our existing visitation agreement and for not paying support. I got an email from Heather about a year ago saying that she would be moving forward with the modification and that she would do it at no cost since my bill had already exceeded 20k dollars for a simple case. So the date is finally set and exactly seven days before we go in to court she says that she never would have agreed to such a thing and asked for 3500 more dollars, I held my ground and tried to hold her to her email to do it at no cost and she didn't show up for court. Instead one of the senior partners did and she removed herself as my attorney. As a result I lost custody of my son after 12.5 years.

I have referred Heather to numerous people that I know,due to her knowledge of the law,her compassion for children, and her detail to attention.

I couldn't be happier with the results that Heather has provided. We truly have been a team, and she has guided me through a very difficult and lengthy divorce. From the beginning Heather explained how each piece of the divorce could proceed and the best way to get through it. She is very diligent and knows NC law. She has been professional and very caring to me and most importantly to the needs of my children. I would highly recommend Heather if you want an ethical lawyer.

Unfortunately I have used Heather on several matters. She has always looked after my best interest even though I disagreed with her a time or two. I was later proved to be wrong, and no, I'm not ashamed to admit it, she was right. If I had not listened and let her do her job, it would have cost me double my fee. She is the professional, not me, lesson learned.
I would trust Heather over any other attorney I have heard of and friends referrals. ANYONE that would give her a bad review simply would not listen to the expert. Let her do her job.

Heather was recommended by a friend and I couldn't have asked for better representation. She took care of every detail, large or small and kept me informed on everything. She was very professional yet connected with me on a personal level, which always made me feel at ease. Heather did a great job on my case and I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone that has legal needs.

I would not recommend this attorney. I retained her in November 2014 and by January 8th she had not drawn up a separation agreement or sent my husband a letter stating the demands I requested. She kept withdrawing from my retainer I had given her to represent me. I sent an email after the first of the year inquiring what is taking so long. I showed the email to several professional people and they were shocked. They advised me that this attorney is not on your side. I terminated counsel with her on January 15 and she responded on January 22 stating that I can pick up my documents but not the remaining balance of my retainer. She stated that they have to keep my money until the end of the month to calculate the charges. She sent me an itemized statement stating that she spent three hours reviewing and going over my documents on January 12th. She knew I was terminating her as my attorney so she put something down on my statement to say she did this regarding my case. I obtained a different attorney on January 30th and he sent a letter to my husband that day.

Heather and the entire staff at WEAVER, BENNETT & BLAND, P.A., are incredibly responsive and have taken a personal interest in representing me. Finding myself involved in a family law case does not "feel good." But Heather is providing excellent counsel along with a high degree of personal interest in my case. As the "Dad" in this case, I continue to appreciate having Heather's opinion on the best way for me to achieve the desired outcome. I would highly recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in need of a smart, caring family law attorney at a top firm.

Heather has been excellent to work with during my divorce and custody cases. She is very personal and takes the time to understand each situation so she can provide the best advice. Unlike some other attorneys, she does not push to take things to court which really drives up fees. She is very good in court but she used it as a last option in my situation and when we did have to go, she came to court well prepared which showed in our positive verdicts.
