Discrimination
I was so stressed out, didn’t know what to do or which way to go. Heather was more comfortable using sign language than I am and her confidence is ‘REAL’. She knows the law and understood what position I was put in. My journey was a lot less stressful with her on board, I felt safe and protected. Heather kept me informed and fully prepared me for what was next and how it would go. My outcome with Heather was very successful and a friendship was formed.

Excellent service with results
Heather ended my sleepless nights and guided me through the application of the law to my case. She was the perfect mix of approachable, knowledgeable and professional. I had consultations with other lawyers prior to working with Heather. She blew them away and far exceeded my expectations. I will be consulting with Heather first for my future legal needs!
