Allan helped us to file in Santa Clara court for name change. The whole process went through smoothly without any issues. We are very happy with the service Allan has provided. We have received quick clarification for any questions that we had. I highly recommend Allan.

Heather and her office made the process of going through TWO restraining orders for me very smooth. She is very attentive to her emails, and was able to explain every step of the way for me. I appreciate that her and her office was able to take care of the extra leg work, (Sheriff's office visits), for me when I was unable to due to work constraints to get my name cleared. Thank you!

I found Heather on Yelp and from day one I felt reassured she would guide me through my messy divorce. Heather is knowledgeable, not a push-over with opposing counsel, empathetic, and definitely not just "in it for the money" as some reviews stated. Her attention to detail, quick response times, willingness to go above and beyond, and extremely reasonable billing made my divorce much more manageable. I would highly recommend Heather and her firm without hesitation.

Divorce is never an easy decision or an easy process to go through. After meeting with Heather it was clear that she was experienced and knew exactly what to do. I appreciated her candidness and straightforward approach. Working with her and her team is extremely easy and everyone was supportive of me. All my questions were answered thoroughly and timely. It made this whole ordeal less stressful and was over quickly. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone needed family law services.

I would not hesitate to recommend anyone who needs a divorce lawyer to seek Heather to represent them. Heather came highly recommended by someone who worked in Family Court. Heather spend time understanding my case and answered many of my questions regarding alimony, assets prior to my marriage and she worked to understand what the opposing counsel was seeking for in the divorce. With good records and some strategizing she got me the best settlement I could hoped for.
Her rates are very reasonable and she and her office staff are very efficient. My case was wrapped up in 11 months from being served with the divorce papers to divorce settlement, saving me money, time and stress.
Do I recommend her? Yes, very highly.

As painful of a process divorce can be, Heather has made it as smooth as humanly possible. In our first JCC hearing I was a nervous wreck and she was able to calm my nerves and put my mind at ease. Heather has been very responsive to all matters. There has been times after hours, Late Friday evenings, holiday weekends, where court orders were not being followed and Heather does everything in her power to see that orders were followed. She has fought tooth and nail for me. If it wasn’t for Heather I would be paying an outrageous amount of money to child support, only have my children every other weekend and more than likely walked away from a house I owned with nothing. I now have a 45/55 split with my children and half of the equity in my house. Heather and her team are very efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. Words do not do Heather and her team any justice. She has made this difficult process a lot easier to deal with. I would not hesitate in recommending Heather one bit.

I engaged Ms. Allan to help me set up a co-guardianship for my young son while I was undergoing treatment for a serious illness. Due to some unique facets of the case, I needed a lawyer with significant expertise in this area and Ms. Allan came recommended from a lawyer I had used previously. She and her team worked quickly and efficiently to get the orders approved by the court, putting my mind at ease during a difficult time.
Her practice is organized and professional. They kept me informed of the progress of the case and sent regular statements itemizing the work that had been done on my case. Ms. Allan gave me an estimate of the costs up front and came in within the quoted amount. Her fees are consistent with what I've paid for similar, high-quality legal help locally.
Ms. Allen and her team were compassionate and helpful and above all they got results. It was a positive experience for me and I would not hesitate to give Ms. Allen my strongest recommendation.

I found Heather on line and after my first meeting with her I knew she was the attorney I needed to help me through my divorce. Heather is kind, considerate and very knowledgable, making the minefield that is divorce, a fairly simple course to navigate. Her attention to detail and extremely reasonable billing made the whole experience more pleasant than I believed it would be.

As a child advocate/attorney, Heather Allan sways back and forth in child custody matters, keeping the fued going between parents in her effort to remain on the case load for her own personal gain. In my case her only interest was collecting monies for subpar services. She was not a good lawyer in my case. As such, she was dismissed.
