Heather was knowledgeable, professional, thorough, during a very difficult two year period. She answered questions with patience and interest. She did research that greatly helped our case. Heather came to each disposition well prepared. She asked direct, thoughtful questions that help the truth to be exposed. We felt that Heather took a great deal of personal interest in our case and in us. All of our concerns were addressed and considered. When we didn't agree with a direction the case was going, she would talk with us tell we all came to the same conclusion. Heather allowed us to share our insights into the case and treated us with great respect. She taught us a great deal about how the law works. I hope that we never have need of her serves again, but if we did we would use Heather Higson. She is simple the best.

How to begin? Never thought I'd be writing a review on behalf of an attorney, but then I never expected to be in the situation I was in! Without going into details of my case, let me simply say it was a horrific and tragic situation that required all of the above and more. Heather is the "perfect balance" of fierce and sensitive. Not only is Heather a first-class attorney but she balances her intense professionalism with a very gentle and compassionate side. She was relentless in pursuing all possibilities and yet very honest with me about what to expect along the journey. She was always right by my side through every single detail. She and her colleagues were truly angels for me and my family.
