Bridget did a wonderful job helping my daughter through a very unpleasant divorce. She and her assistant Nikki were very helpful and patient with my daughter who has medical issues. Our whole family was involved with the divorce because of her medical problems and Bridget was more than helpful with all of us. I would hire her again.

I very rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so after having Bridget Heptner prepare my divorce. She made me feel comfortable and confident with every meeting. Answered every single question I had. Was extremely quick to respond via phone or email and didn't make me wait weeks for appointments, paperwork, or scheduling. She plowed through my divorce and got in done within 3 months. Her assistant, Nikki, always warm and welcoming and very competent. Would highly recommend Ms. Heptner's services and would use her again if ever needed.

I would highly recommend Bridget without reservation. She has all the attributes and integrity that one would hope for in a family law attorney. I spent over 150,000 in attorney fees with a "billboard attorney" who never was able to facilitate or promote a mediation, with my contentious divorce, that was dragged out for over 2 years. In fact, I believe some of my initial attorney's advice actually promoted more motions, mediations, useless depositions, court hearings and most importantly more attorney fees. From my first meeting with Bridget, the interaction was very different compared to my initial attorney. She only has one assistant Nikki who is always a pleasure to deal with regarding correspondence, and leaving messages. Bridget only takes enough clients in order to properly handle a case. This is crucial if you want your divorce to come to a real settlement. She is not trying to build an empire. There was no absurd paralegal fees or abuse of billing, which in my opinion was rampant with my first attorney. The most important difference was the one on one attentiveness with my very complex case, which resulted in her mediating my divorce within less than a month. She actually would answer question or concerns via email or phone promptly. I truly believe if I had her as my family law attorney, my Divorce may have never been dragged out for 2 1/2 years, and I wouldn't have lost my entire retirement to attorney fees. I already have been recommending other colleagues and friends to at least obtain a second opinion from her. She was a pleasure to work with due to her compassion, integrity, intelligence, experience and professionalism!!!
5 stars and excellent review is was earned and deserved.

I have known Bridget Heptner since we were fellow law students at Stetson University College of Law. She is a highly competent family attorney of impeccable integrity. Indeed, it was Bridget to whom I turned for representation in my own divorce from my first wife.
