I hired David to handle a fairly straight forward custody case. His initial consultation left me feeling good about my choice. However soon after I agreed to pay everything changed. They did not follow up with me ever. They seriously did not return one phone call of mine.
He seemed very arrogant and disengaged. They appear way to busy and should not be accepting new clients. His staff is rude and he scapegoats them for every failure.
If you do hire him stay on top of them and demand results.
I ended up hiring a less expensive, less known attorney and my case was wrapped up in a few weeks.

Mr. Heisler is a lazy attorney. When I first hired him for my divorce, he promised he would always keep me informed, which he NEVER did. Four years ago, he fired me as a client because I had spoken in court stating facts he refused to present. The judge subsequently ruled in my favor although she was about to rule in favor of my ex-wife. The reason Mr. Heisler refused to present these facts was he stated they were irrelevant. Obviously the judge did not have the same opinion. Mr. Heisler withdrew just as I needed representation the most although I found that arguing the case myself was preferable to having a bad lawyer. Today I found out that he had not filed a withdrawal with the court nor did he inform me that my ex-wife had filed a new petition to have me pay her attorney fees. His negligence hamstrings me since I cannot get help from legal aide or even hire another lawyer until he files the withdrawal with the court. I called his office today and was told that they do not file a withdrawal or a substitution of attorney unless requested. It's been four years and he abandoned me. Why the delay?

David Heisler and his office are extremely unprofessional. Vergie-Rude!!! Brandy unprofessional and incompetent. Every time I went to court Mr. Heisler was late! Then when he arrived he would asked me to give him a recap of why we were here. In the court room he was contently corrected by the judge on grammar. During the court proceedings he wrote on a piece of paper "your going to lose" my response was "you are the won that lost, I hired you to win not lose" over 10k I will never see again. Then he sent me a bill with additional charges of 2500.00. Reading over a confusing itemized invoice he charge me for going to pick up court document that I had retrieved myself and delivered to his office, This guy is just in it for the buck and then tries to take more when your case is over. Move on to another that will get you somewhere.

David Heisler spent more time going over his pay structure (the definition of a "True Retainer" and how it is 100% Non-Refundable, even if I change my mind and fire him tomorrow, I'd never get my $3,000 back), than any other topic regarding my divorce. He never informed me of what would be discussed during meetings with opposing counsel, or the court. He would charge me for contacting his office to ask a question that he should have answered while I was in his office. I will never hire David Heisler again.

I hired Mr Heisler to prove change of circumstance, which I had a prima facie case, other parent already was convicted of custody contempt prior year by myself pro per and judge ordered move-away request based on unproven change of circumstance. Heisler told me before that a CoC does not matter.

I hiried David to handle both of my children's custody cases. He was very professional, and handled the case in a timely manner. He knows the San Bernardino Family Court Judges, and the paper work they do over there is the best. In a time that was very confusing and frustrating for me, he took care of everything. David is a father himself and knows what your are going through. He presented my case to the judge in a way I could'nt, and got me very need Emergency custody of my children. His paper work saved the DA Child Aduction unit a week of there time in court hearings, and got my kids back that much quicker. I also like to point out Davids team, the women that work for him are awesome, they were always in contact with me, friendly, and handled my situation with urgency. To sum it all up, David went above and beyond what I asked of him. He gave back to me the most important things in my life, my Children.

Attorney David Heisler really helped me out. I was in a difficult situation and did not know where to turn. Luckily, Mr. Heisler is very knowledgeable and caring, and he was able to help me out. Things could not have turned out better! When you need a great attorney call Mr. David Heisler! I cannot recommend him enough!

Highly recommended in all possible ways. I very rarely take time out to write a review but in the case of Mr. Heisler the integrity, diligence and skill he brings to his profession truly merit such a review. My personal case has involved several attorneys and has spanned several years. I can say I was frustrated, depressed and exhausted not to mention feeling distrustful of legal representation when I first met with Mr. Heisler. In all honestly I can say that after placing my trust in Mr. Heisler all aspects of my life improved dramatically. Even though he is very busy, at all times Mr. Heisler and his outstanding staff treated me as if my case was of the greatest importance, providing personal attention and support when I most needed it. Mr. Heisler’s prowess in the courtroom and his command of the intricacies of my case was to say the least impressive. Now with one of the worst times of my life behind me I can begin to look to the future for my son and I and I owe that in large part to the excellent representation I received from Mr. Heisler. Again highly recommended!

David helped me through one of the hardest times of my life. My children's mother had accused me of physically abusing my son and was asking the court to not allow me to have any contact with my children.
David stepped into the court with such confidence. He guided me through everything and explained exactly what I needed to do and what to expect. Though he never promised me results, he did promise me hard work from him and his staff. They all worked so hard for me.
Nothing was more comforting to me then when I went to court and I wasn't there by myself. David was very intelligent and seemed to know everyone in all of the courtrooms that I went to.
In the end, I ended with 50 percent custody and I get to see my children far more then even before the case. Thanks to David, I get to be the father that my children deserve and I longed for.
