Extraordinary Attorney
I discovered Attorney Heather on the morning of August 29, 2022. My first call was a free consultation. She heard my concern and within 10 minutes, she assured me with confidence that all my real estate, county, and court records were in order. Heater gave me her undivided attention. She is a very knowledgeable and professional attorney, but most importantly, trustworthy and reliable. I offered to pay her for her determination to help me. but she refused and reminded me for the first time it a free consultation. I never experienced such great service from a passionate and compassionate attorney. I would definitely recommend Heather L. Horst as your attorney.

A pitbull in a skirt!
Heather knew exactly what needed to be said and how to listen for when the other side was messing up. She knows her information. I will continue to have Heather in my corner when I need it again. I have already referred her to many of my friends and family.

Help when I needed it.
Heather was very helpful when I needed to file a contempt in my divorce case that had been closed for over 2 years. She did the research on the case needed and suggested a course of action. The issue was solved out of court and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thank you again for the great job!!!
