I picked up Heather as my attorney as a recommendation from a friend. I went in for a free consultation for a family law issue (child custody). I gave her a list of my demands I printed up for her and she reviewed them and accepted my case. I am a father recently separated from my ex and was asking for split custody 50/50 of my daughter. It took about six months for our parties to begin a mediation. Leading up to mediation I had several legal questions that I asked Heather on separate occasions and she said needed to get back to me. She did get back to me. During mediation she did no arguing nor fighting for my demands. I had to do that myself. After mediation I get to see my daughter twice a week and have to pay child support. And I have to pay half for the babysitter my ex took my daughter to while she kept me from seeing her. Recently I got a letter in the mail from family services saying I owe more money in child support. The letter states that I need to pay child support while waiting for the judges ruling on the amount in the same child custody case Heather originally accepted from me. I called Heather and sent her a copy of the letter for more legal clarification and the next correspondence I get from her is a letter stating she no longer represents me and good luck in the future.

Heather is awesome. She always take the time to talk to me and respond. She is very patient, especially with my situation. She also has offered up alternatives to an awful situation. She is very understanding and is not a "cut throat" lawyer who just wants to take your money, she definately cares. I would definately recommend her!!!

Heather has defended me against slanderous information disseminated about my entity. She is very professional, organized, and an excellent communicator. She genuinely cares about my case and has a passion for justice. She is a relentless worker and always gives an accurate response to questions I have. I would highly recommend her.
