Full Suite of Corporate Services
Ms. Urness has been our company's attorney since pre-incorporation. She initially assisted us with corporate structure, financing agreements, and acquiring our license, and now advises us on business contracts and compliance-related operational strategies. Ms. Urness is also prompt with communications, and has made high quality referrals to help our business "connect the dots" operationally. Highly recommended corporate and contract attorney.

Definitely the lady for the job!
Heidi is hands down the best at what she does. She is very thorough at her job and accurate. In the little time we spoke she helped educate me on my situation to help with her referral. I've already started recommending Heidi!

Hire Heidi!
"Thorough" is Heidi's middle name! Heidi has been extremely involved with us every step of the way. While she has years of experience (that clearly shows in her work!) she has never made us feel inadequate or unintelligent for asking questions. Heid has been instrumental in connecting us with other individuals in the CBD space and has provided resources on how to better educate ourselves and clients. Heidi is always looking out for us and we are so appreciative of all that she does and have enjoyed working with her!

Legal Consultant
I have known Heidi for more than a decade. Most recently, my team and I consulted Ms. Urness who readily provided us not only clear and valuable insight, but also promptly followed up with a thorough written substantive outline, accompanied by sample motions and checklists. As professional as she is knowledgeable. Ms. Urness has my strong recommendation.

Contract Termination and support
Heidi provided excellent advice and support when I first reached out to her. I found myself locked into an agreement with partners that were taking advantage. Heidi stepped in and reviewed everything we had in place and found an opportunity to help me exit the situation. It was a seamless transition and she provided great guidance and support during the entire process

She’s the BEST!
Heidi will never make you feel as if you’re “just a client.” She will make sure everything is done in her power to ensure you receive the fairness the legal system rarely gives without an extra push. Heidi is in a league of her own when it comes to putting in the work to get the wanted results

Business Mgr
Ms. Urness took the time to understand the issues I was facing in detail, define the possible paths for resolution, and gave me insights to empower me to select the best option and then immediately executed on what we discussed. I feel far more confident having her in our corner.

Heidi is one of the most creative and dedicated litigators I have ever encountered. She truly cares about her clients and will fight for the best outcome possible. She is quick to respond and will not let the opposing counsel slip anything by. Heidi is top notch as a counselor as well.
