Heather is an Attorney and Shareholder with GLP Attorneys, and leads the firm’s North and Central Washington offices based in Burlington, which includes Skagit, Whatcom, San Juan, Island, Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. Heather manages a team of tfour personal injury attorneys, their paralegals, legal assistants and staff. She and her team have grown GLP Attorneys' Burlington office to be recognized among the best personal injury law firms in North and Central Washington.
Heather started her career in the legal field in 1990, when she began work as a paralegal. She joined GLP Attorneys as a paralegal in 2002. Inspired by over a decade of work with attorneys and clients, in 2003 she entered the Washington State Bar Association’s Rule 6 Law Clerk Program. This four year program is an alternative to the traditional law school program and gave Heather the opportunity to not only learn legal theory and history, but it also provided a solid clinical experience where she was able to apply what she learned to actual cases and work for clients. She did this because she continued to work full-time as a paralegal while in the program. Heather graduated from the program in 2007, passed the Washington State Bar and became a trial attorney with GLP Attorneys in 2007.
Heather is bilingual in Spanish, and provides excellent representation to most of GLP Attorneys’ Spanish speaking personal injury clients throughout Washington State. Most of Heather’s Burlington staff is also bilingual in Spanish.
An active member of the Washington State Bar, Heather is also a member of the Skagit County Bar Association, the King County Bar Association, the Snohomish County Bar Association and the Whatcom County Bar Association. Heather is an Eagle member of the Washington Association for Justice (WSAJ), and the Washington Women Lawyers Association. She is admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the District of Western Washington. Heather has been recognized in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by her peers as a Rising Star through Washington Law & Politics Magazine – an honor bestowed on only 2.5% of Washington lawyers.
Heather’s passion for her work and clients is evidenced by her many reported settlements and verdicts.

I have had the chance to work directly with Heather on several of her recent personal injury trials in 2015. She has very much impressed me with her skill as a litigator, and with her passion for her clients. I highly recommend Heather to anyone needing a great personal injury attorney in Burlington, Mount Vernon, Bellingham, and Wenatchee.
