Melissa was very professional and sensitive to my situation. My divorce took longer than normal and had many "bumps" due to my ex husband's criminal case. She explained everything in a very clear and precise manner. I knew exactly what to expect throughout my divorce proceedings. I had many questions and never felt like any of my questions were trivial. She is a very straight forward, intelligent, and honest lawyer. I was entirely satisfied and had a very good client, attorney relationship.

Melissa worked very hard on my custody case and ended up getting me maximum days with my twins. And even though case over, she is there to support me and and answer all my questions. She's amazing.

I could not have asked for better representation during the tiresome period that is a custody agreement. From day one she worked with me to understand the reality of my situation and was completely 100% realistic, upfront and honest. It is so obvious that she cares about the client first and foremost. She explained to me what the obstacles were and was extremely attentive on how we would tackle each.

Ms. Heinig has the knowledge, skills, and integrity to provide excellent representation to the clients who have trusted her with their family law cases that almost always involve very sensitive personal information. I endorse this lawyer.
