This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Knowledgeable, Efficient Adviser
We hired Heidi to be our real estate attorney. Her services were appreciated and very thorough. She was very knowledgeable and meticulous in her review of our real estate negotiations. Her proactive and efficient feedback with us and the sellers ensured the closing process would not be elongated by unnecessary disputes. We appreciated her expertise in reviewing all aspects of the transaction, including serving as our advocate for negotiations regarding the date of possession. We enjoyed working with Heidi and look forward to using her services again in the future. We highly recommend her as an attorney.
