Excellent Lawyer!!!
As a 20 year military veteran and a commercial airline pilot. I hold professionalism sacred. Heather’s professionalism is unmatched. She is of the highest caliber. I would highly recommend. She puts children at the highest priority. She works countless hours in order to ensure the best outcome for her clients. She is diligent in responding to any questions or concerns her client may have. Hands down I have not encountered a better lawyer than Heather Landon!

| Consulted Attorney
Highly Competent and Very Aggressive
Heather is very aggressive in defending her clients. She represented my ex-wife in our divorce and had no problem telling the judge outright lies and slandering my name in attempt to paint me as the "bad guy" in the divorce. She encouraged her client to try to have my mother arrested for harassment due to a few text messages that were actually polite and courteous. She encouraged her client to file a false police report against me after her client intentionally damaged her own property in a storage unit. She sent an IWO to my employer and had child support taken out of my pay check before the judge even signed the order. She sets her morals and ethics aside when defending her clients. She's expensive, but worth every penny if you need someone to strongly defend you in a difficult divorce.

Recommended for all
I came to Heather in one of the most stressful situations in my life and she came through amazingly. Not only was she able to calm me when I was stressed and answer all my legal questions with knowledge and confidence, but she was a zealous advocate for my case and worked with me to get a fair outcome. As a result, I am more relaxed and calm than I have been in years and I have a fair and equitable schedule with my kids that was attempting to be denied to me. I would recommend Heather for anyone that is seeking an attorney that will work with them through the toughest times and fight ardently on their side but not try to patronize them with unrealistic or false expectations. The truth and honesty that Heather provided no only to me but to the other side of this case is truly what made the difference and that is the kind of honesty and integrity that is needed from an attorney. Thank you for everything!

Highly recommended lawyer
Heather guided us through the legal process with confidence and compassion. She was always prepared, answered our questions directly and honestly. She was there for us during a confusing and emotional time, we wouldn't have made it through the court process without her support and knowledge.

Quality and Affordability!
Heather Landon was incredible to work with! She handled my family law case with grace and efficiency in what has been a very contentious battle for many years. Her compassion for my struggles and her consciousness of my budgeting restraints made it an easy experience! I would highly recommend her to any of my family or friends!!

Excellent Lawyer
Heather was awesome to work with! Excellent communicator, trustworthy, knowledgeable and she will go out of her way to help in any way she can. She is very reasonably priced (I picked her out of 5 other attorney's I reviewed/interviewed). I will definitely seek her assistance again, if I need any legal help in the future.

Great lawyer
That old saying if there a lawyer they must be a liar DOESNT apply here. I’ve known heather for going on 4 years she’s handled the cases I’ve had be it family or otherwise in a timely manner. Always upfront open and honest about options, what is to come. Will always communicate with you. I am a client for life with Heather.

Excellent Divorce Lawyer
Heather is an irreplaceable asset. I cannot recommend her services enough especially if you are facing or involved in a highly complicated, emotional time in your life. She carried herself with professionalism and grace while going above and beyond to assist me.

Would recommend HIGHLY to anyone in need of counsel. Loads of stress off my shoulders. Thanks again Heather!

Incredible Representation at an Affordable Price!
Heather is, by far, the best attorney that I have had the pleasure to have represent me. She is very attentive and responds very quickly to any emails or phone messages. She always immediately communicated any developments in my case and made sure I understood them. Also, her knowledge of the law was impressive even to the most minor details. I hired her because I felt that her retainer was reasonable, but I was pleasantly surprised at the level of representation I got. I received a statement every month of her fees which was always seemed very reasonable, unlike many other attorneys. Also, she even sent me a refund check with the amount that we didn't use of the retainer! That's never happened before! I have recommended her to many friends and family, and would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone else. Thanks again, Heather.

She saved my daughter
Heather has been handling a custody/child protection case and a post divorce case for over two years (mixed cases) for us. She is absolutely tireless in her dedication to our cause, and because of her vast knowledge and experience, has been able to protect us not only from the obvious, but from those things a less experienced advocate may not know. She is incredibly thorough, detailed, competent, and she truly cares about her clients. I would recommend her for absolutely any legal issues you have. She is by far the best attorney I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

Life Saver!
Heather literally saved not only my deteriorating health due to the stress I was going through due to my legal matters, but also defended my honor when I was entirely innocent of what I was being accused of during the process of my diversion/probation. Not only did Heather help, but she understood, and had my back throughout the entire ordeal. Also with all my chronic medical problems, she went to the ends of the earth regarding information and research about my chronic disease, surgeries, hospitalizations, and medications which could have been a factor in the dilemma I was in. She researched things about my medications that I couldn't have, and I've been doing it for years. She is an amazing, reasonable, and caring person on top of her professionalism, which is without precedent. She not only got me through an extremely difficult, and complex situation/time, but basically saved my life with my chronic medical problems being a huge issue for me. I could never repay her and I'd recommend her for anyone going through anything that she represents because she will do just that, and she will do it the best, at the most elite level. Jake Mc

Extremely professional and she really cares
What can I say....Heather was very professional & went above and beyond to get me more than my fair share of time with my son in a custody case. She answered and returned EVERY single phone call, nowadays that a rarity. It's also more than a professional relationship. I send her pics of my son every summer of my son when I have him for 2 months in July/August as a reminder I totally appreciate everything she did for me. I totally recommend her to anyone.
