Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Sydney S. Stuart

    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.

  • Belinda Jean Roberts

    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.
