  • Scott Erik Edgett

    I wholeheartedly endorse Heather! Heather has earned a solid reputation throughout Texas for effectively representing individuals accused of serious crimes. Prosecutors truly fear her. She has the necessary reputation, knowledge, and experience to eliminate or minimize the consequences of the government's accusation. She is a very effective and skilled litigator who has the guts to stand up to the government and their accusations to demand evidence, not simply an accusation. You can never go wrong with Heather!
