Professional and helpful
I used Ms. Kaemmer for my separation and divorce. She and her office were very professional and helpful during an exremely difficult time. Ms. Kaemmer knows her profession inside and out and will advocate for you. She knows how to navigate divorce and difficult spouses.

Highly recommended and Couldn't have asked for a better attorney!
As soon as Heather was hired she helped me and started making an impact in my custody case right away! Her and her team are very professional and are very open with communication.

Highly recommend!
I couldn’t be happier, and more grateful for Heather and her staff. She is the attorney you want on your side. Very knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. During the most stressful, and anxious time of my life, she made the process as smooth as possible, and was a true pleasure to work with.

Professional, Understanding, and very Knowledgeable
Heather is very professional and does her due diligence in providing fair and just resolutions pertaining to custody of children during separations/divorce. She has been representing me for five years and I can always rely on her to help with matters pertaining to the custody of my children. She responds immediately to all matters and keeps you well informed of all processes and the way ahead. I highly recommend her for retainment in any legal family matters.

I hired Heather to represent me in my child custody case. Being a father it’s not always easy going against the mother, but I felt confident knowing I had Heather with me going into the court room. I won custody of my daughter thanks to all Heathers hard work.During the 2 year process Heather answered all my questions in a timely manner and made sure I understood everything. Once it was time for court Heather did in amazing job making sure we were getting my points across. Heather is a shark in the court room and I would rather have her on my side the against me. I would recommend Heather to anyone I know.

Professional and determined
I hired Heather in order to fight for and obtain custody of my 3 children following a 12 year marriage with my kids mother. As a father, the system is against you from the start. Every judge and everyone has already declared in their minds that the mother should have custody and you have to prove why this standard practice is not in the best interest of the kids. In my case, after 4 DSS cases in under 2 years, each one placing the care and safety of the kids under my care and restricting the visitation of their mother, I thought I had a open and shut case to continue to have full custody of my kids. However, without Heather and her professional determination I honestly believe that my kids would have ended up with their mother. I can't thank her enough and have recommended her to several of my close friends.

Professional, Reliable, Honest
I retained Heather Kaemmer in the Spring of 2017 for primary custody of my daughter. It was a difficult process. I am a father first and foremost, but there are many other obstacles during custody cases. Regardless of the frustrations and difficulties that these cases are known for Heather remained extremely professional, was very diligent in her work for my case, and is the first lawyer I have spoken with or hired for custody who seemed genuine in her desire to help. I ended up gaining custody of my daughter in October of 2017. I owe a big thanks to Heather as she was instrumental in that outcome and was a great help throughout the grueling process. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer in family law.

Amazing lawyer
Heather was extremely helpful, honest, and patient. Custody cases can be heated and complex but she always gave me great advice and settle my case with one of the most uncouth lawyers in Jacksonville (Ball)

Could not have asked for better service!!
I had a very particular situtaion that needed extra attention and that's what I got. From the first time that I spoke with Heather Kaemmer I knew I found a lawyer that I could trust. She was very detailed in the things we had to cover. I felt as though any time that I had just the smallest question I could email her and I would get a response within 48 hours. Heck I think she even responded to me while taking vacation or a long weekend once. That shows me that she is very dedicated to her job and her clients. I would recommend her to anyone that is in need of her services. On a scale of 1-10 I give her a 20!! Thanks Heather

Heather Kaemmer was great
This was my first time going through a divorce and knew nothing about what to do or expect except all the horror stories of other divorces. Heather was informative and friendly throughout the entire process. Heather always kept in informed on what was going on, what was going to happen, and the status of every step until my divorce was final. She always ansered my questions and made sure I understood. I would recommend Heather to anyone going through a divorce.

A review for legal services rendered by Attorney Heather Kaemer
Not much for these things, but Heather deserves it. Throughout the entire process, Heather was professional and extremely helpful. Though I lost my case, none of that was due to any lack of skill or knowledge in her part. It was a pleasure working with her, regardless of the circumstances.

Attorney Review
Mrs. Kaemmer was very professional when she helped with our court case. She was knowledgeable about her job and communicated me effectively. I would call her again if I needed help with anything.
Posted by Kara | September 21, 2014
I loved working with Heather Kaemmer!
I loved working with Heather. When I contacted her, I didn't have much time or money and she was the fifth lawyer I had talked to. Heather worked with me with my money issues, and made sure I was ready for my court case on time. I was nervous about everything and Heather always kept me calm , she cared about me and how I felt. She answered all my questions and concerns. Thanks to her help I now have primary custody of my children! If I had to I'd definitely work with her again.
