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.

Finding a lawyer wasn't easy. Having the right lawyer defending you is the most important resource one needs during a difficult time. Trust and dedication is key. That is what I got with Bridget Heptner. From my first phone call to her office, to the final judgment of my case, her dedication and determination was outstanding. Every step of my divorce process was handled with care. I am very thankful I had Bridget Heptner on my side.

I have used Bridget Heptner twice over the last 10 years and was very happy with both of my cases. She was fair, kept me informed and told me exactly what to expect. I trust Bridget and would highly reccomend her to someone having to go through a divorce. My first divorce was contested but finally agreed upon after going through mediation. My most recent divorce, in May 2013, was uncontested, and done proficiently and timely.

I hired this attorney for a specific purpose in my post dissolution divorce case. At the time I retained her, my ex-spouse was pro-se. Ms. Heptner was very supportive of me and my case until my ex-spouse retained an Attorney. At that time she immediately turned against me. She then went beyond her scope of limited appearance and spoke to the opposing counsel regarding issues I was strictly dealing with pro se. Although I told her not to speak to the Attorney unless it involved her limited appearance, she continued to do so and charge me for it. She ran up my bill in these matters but I had to represent myself in court. To make matters worse, once we finally had a hearing date and it was clear we were going to win fees to continue, she called me three hours before the hearing and informed me she made a deal on my behalf and basicly shut down my case. I was forced to once again represent myself in court. When I returned from Court I received the order she and the opposing counsel agreed upon. I then sent Ms. Heptner a letter stating I did not agree with her making the deal behind my back and I wanted her to withdraw the order. She called me a few days later and was very disrespectful. She then filed a notice of non-representation and a notice of withdrawal of the original motion in which I hired her. I asked her to refund my retainer but she refused . In my opinion, what starts out as a very pleasant experience with Bridget Heptner, ends in a nightmare. I must add, I have all respect for her Legal Assistant, Nikki.
