Highly recommended
Paul made everything simple and painless with my case. He personally called me to review matters, answered all my concerns and put my mind at ease. He broke down all the things I needed to do and helped a lot of complicated matters make sense. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for help.

Approachable & Helpful
We needed an estate plan with wills, POAs and directives. We got several estimates and chose Paul. Paul was easy to talk to and very easy to understand. It was like talking to a good friend who was really smart. We got our estate plan done and couldn't be happier.

Hire the best
Paul handled my case with precision and excellence. He is not only a brilliant expert in his field but he also understands the complexity of every individual situation. I consulted with dozens of attorneys who couldn’t grasp the concept needed to complete my case. I recommend highly recommend him

Great peace of mind!
My wife and I met with Mr. Heatherman to arrange a living trust. He guided us through the process, made it easy to understand and confident in the fact that we had protected out assets for our children. He then went above and beyond by checking a chain of title to make sure everything was in order. Without charge. Mr. Heatherman is our go to guy for any legal matters.

A very professional and personable attorney!
My wife and I recently met with Paul Heatherman to help us establish a living trust. We were extremely pleased with the entire process! We found Paul to be very knowledgeable, conscientious and efficient in all aspects of the job. Paul took the time to listen to our goals and competently guided us throughout to a completed document that captured exactly what we sought to accomplish with our living trust. He often offered helpful suggestions along the way to address and clarify specific provisions we wanted in the document. When we had questions, Paul was always very thoughtful in his responses and explained things in a manner that was easily understood. He was also very patient with us and made sure we were completely satisfied with the language of the trust all along the way. We also found his price to be very reasonable given the number of hours that he spent with us both in person and exchanging draft revisions. Paul's staff were all very pleasant and efficient to work with too. As with Paul, his staff always responded in a very timely manner to our needs. Quite simply, Paul is just a very nice man to work with and was completely competent in the work he did for us. We will definitely seek his guidance again if needed and we will highly recommend him to our friends as trustworthy, honest and professional.

A Pleasure to Work With
I hired Paul to work on 2 real estate transactions. He did a great job on both, his fee was very reasonable, He did the work in a timely manner, and he communicated with me (sometimes a novelty in this day and age). Paul is just a competent, nice person to work with.

Paul B Heatherman THE BEST Choice
I am very grateful for the kindness, efficiency, thoroughness, and speed with which Paul settled my needs. I came to him very confused about quit claim and bargain sale deeds and disappointment over much higher home insurance rates,for the coming year. Paul made me aware of the value of a living trust, something I intended to draw up years ago but never had. He also found an insurance company for me that is 85 dollars less than my insurance before they raised the rates and $220 less than what i would be paying now if i stayed with the old insurance policy. Every cent counts with me, and the gal who arranged for my new insurance is so friendly. Paul drew up the living trust very quickly and I am so relieved that what had been stressing me out for years was so easily taken care of. Paul was very generous in his charges, and on both occasions I hired his expert service, he charged me less than the quoted price. Finally, and of great importance, Paul is such a genuinely GOOD man. And his receptionist Christine was so very cheerful, friendly, and helpful during my 3 visits. I strongly recommend you consider this lawyer if he handles the kind of legal work you are needing!!!!!
