Ms Anderson saved the day for my daughter and grandchild. She represented my interest in a battle with CPS. Her expertise and passion won the day. I have custody of my grandchild and we are happy family once again. I can't thank her enough...

I highly recommend Rita.....she helped this grandmother (Momo) of four precious children, to remain in their lives while helping their parents get on the right track. She knows CPS law backwards and forwards and fought for me tooth and nail. She has a lot of life experience and she really helped me through this legal process and today our lives are better than ever!! Thanks you Rita for being exactly what I needed.....you are greatly appreciated!!!

Mrs. Rita Hecker Anderson was my lawyer on a case that went on for a good year and a half. She kept me informed at all times whether it be via phone, e-mail or in person. Rita is very trustworthy and took care of my case as needed. I would definitely recommend Rita to anyone any day. I am very thankful to have been blessed with a good lawyer.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
It is an honor to endorse this lawyer. Rita is a former business partner and a skilled and experienced attorney. She always goes above and beyond for her clients, and is admired and respected throughout the legal community. She is dedicated, and consistently achieves great outcomes for her clients. Additionally, she selflessly lends her own expertise in the mentoring of younger attorneys in her field. Truly a pleasure to work with.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Rita Hecker Anderson is one of my favorite attorneys to work with. She is tough but professional. I never doubt that she is going to be a realistic advocate for her clients. When I have tough questions about the law or strategy, she is one of the first attorneys I turn to. If a friend or family member were in need, I would absolutely send them to Rita.
