4.5 stars 10 totalReview Linda Vanden Heuvel
Posted by Jacqueline
Divorce was the hardest thing to go through but I am so fortunate that I had Linda Vanden Heuvel as my attorney. Linda really supported me and kept me on track when emotions were running high. It was so difficult to focus on financial decisions when my whole life was crumbling and changing but Linda was there to help me remember that these financial decisions would impact not only my future but my children's future well being. Linda was also so helpful in navigating placement. It's all so overwhelming. All I wanted was to keep my kids safe and happy. Linda helped me sort out all the options and make a decision and agreement with my ex that would be the best for our kids. She helped me see that fighting about every little detail would never pay off and that we needed to look past the immediate stress and help our kids be happy and healthy. Linda was sometimes a little tough but only when I needed it. She also remembered how much stress the whole divorce put in me and on my kids. Linda was there for me in court. She knows what she is doing. She knows when to stand firm even when it seems easier to give in. I am so glad I had her in my side. She is experienced and really cares what happens to her clients and their kids. I would recommend Linda to anyone with a family law case.

I wish I had researched her prior to hiring. Linda doesn't work with you or for you. I was being billed for unanswered emails/calls, belittled and even yelled at in her office on multiple occasions. I now know of others who have used her and said the same. She was never concerned with my case and I never felt like a valued client. I was hardly updated on the process and each time I called to check on what was happening, I talked to a staff member who left her a message and I was charged for basically getting no answer to my question. Because Linda did not read through my MSA and advise me to do or not do some things, I am now battling with my ex on many items and will have to take him back to court. She is the expert and she was to advise me, but all she did was let me down. She wasn't going to fight to get me the most money for maintenance, I had to pay a divorce financial advisor to figure out the most I could get. Linda was going to let the judge decide. My ex-husband and I were trying to work things out between us to come to an agreement so we didn't have the judge decide everything and Linda did not like that. I feel that when she found this out, she stopped working for me. She never looked out for my best interest. I wasted 15 months and way too much money on her dragging her feet and being absolutely worthless. Put your money into a lawyer that will do the right thing not one that cares more about getting paid.

A caring, passionate, dedicated, knowledgeable and excellent attorney. Linda is definitely someone you want on your side to help you through. I highly recommend her.

Uncontested divorce and one court appearance in eight months resulted in more than $25,000 in attorney and other fees. The last bill was sent 7 months after divorce was finalized and charged as a result of my questioning a missed QDRO. Attorney was openly harsh with her staff and very disorganized. I felt a lack of trust, but didn't have the cash to pay another retainer for a different attorney.

Linda is an extremely knowledgable lawyer who always fought for me. She was always open to my suggestions and helped me to a successful result. I am glad I chose Linda to guide me through this tough time.

One of the most difficult decisions to make in your life ‘after all else fails’ will be to divorce. Emotions (both for you and your children), disappointments, the feeling of failure and a complete change to your life are a lot to handle. Finding the right attorney to represent you is biggest challenge you’ll experience. I feel must people don’t take the time to find that person and this is someone you’re going to partner up with for months! For me, I had visited three attorneys. One of the three had the skill set necessary but I didn’t feel overly confident we would work well together. A co-worker stopped by my office and asked “did you hire an attorney”? Reluctantly (as everyone’s always got the one for you) I said “no”. He said “I have one that you need to interview”. I said “is it the attorney you used”? He said “no, his ex-wife hired her and she made my attorney look like a fool”. I laughed so hard, I set up the interview. Talk about a referral! He was right, I met Linda in her office and I felt comfortable that she should be the legal counsel representing me. Originally I was nervous when I heard the news that my soon to-be ex-wife hired some hot-shot attorney. Upon completion of the divorce process, both my ex-wife and I feel Linda out performed her attorney. I write this as I feel it is so important to hire the best possible attorney and that person is Attorney Linda Vanden Heuvel. Someone you can count on from the beginning to the end.

Linda represented my sister in a very bad and traumatic car crash, where my sister suffered brain injuries. Linda left no stone unturned in making sure that my sister received every dollar to which she was entitled from the driver of the other vehicle. While my sister will never be able to dance at her wedding, I can rest assured that she will be cared for for the rest of her life. Linda's representation of my sister was a 24/7 job. I know she cared for my sister and our family. We were not just a number on a file.

I was in the middle of my divorce, and things didn't seem to go my way. I heard about Linda' superior knowledge of the law and made the switch immediately. My case seemed to move along seamlessly and certainly caused me less stress. Linda was spectacular in the courtroom and in her office. She truly made the pain of divorce less painful. She could connect with me and understand what I truly wanted out of my divorce. I send great thanks to Linda and her wonderful staff. I definitely recommend her services to everyone! Thank you!

I received immediate service and excellent results. This attorney had a good relationship with the judges and clerks at the courthouse. Her staff is excellent. Great website!
