As a career Soldier I had so much to lose when the most personally and professionally embarrassing event took place; I was arrested for reckless driving and DUI. With over 16 years in the uniform and serving our country, I could truly see no positive outcomes for a pending Board of Inquiry not only in the military, but in a career beyond the military. With the civilian court concluded and the military board looming, I knew this was essentially the fight not only for my well being and future, but my family’s as well. If anyone is reading this and finds themselves in a similar situation, and you care about what you have done and will continue to do, look no further than to Heather’s help. If you hire her, and I recommend you do, you'll have someone on your side with a non-JAG perspective. Someone with an in-depth knowledge of the military trial system and knows military regulation. Someone with the tenacity to fight for your ‘Retain’, combined with a complete understanding of what is at stake, and the needed compassion to prove to the board that you are worthwhile and that you still have a place in the uniform. Otherwise, there are options either at no-cost to you or other representation available…but why when you can have the best on your side?? Without a doubt, Heather helped me earn my 'Retain', and because of her, I will be able to continue on and retire. It was because of similar reviews on Heather's past successes that I consulted her and instantly knew I needed her expertise. It wasn't a difficult decision to hire her to represent me, and looking back, it was the smartest decision I made for the dumbest mistake in my life.

Heather was hired as my attorney for a very difficult assault case. She was great at doing research to help my case as well as help me understand what could happen. In the end the case was dismissed. I never felt like she wasn't on my side and that was very important for me. I would absolutely recommend her to any friends or family that was in need of an attorney as well as rehire if I ever needed one again.

Shes not only an amazing attorney but also an amazing person

After hearing that my military career was done after being pulled over by a few other lawyers in town. Not only did Mrs. Straub help with guiding me through the military side of the house, she was also able to get my charge of DUI reduced.

I was at a low point in my life when I met Heather, and she gave me Hope! She was willing to fight for me, and she did. I will always be thankful for her expertise and professionalism. Heather was not the first attorney I talked to, and I was discouraged. She showed me enthusiasm. She believed me, and I left her office believing in myself again. She listened to me in a very non-judgmental way. She was sharp and knowledgeable. She planned a legal strategy and included me in the planning. She was also able to change that strategy as the case brought to light new information and new opportunity. She was able to see the dynamic of the key people involved. I appreciated the fact that she kept me in the conversation loop between her, the prosecutors and the judge. I appreciated her positive attitude, and her honest assessment. She tirelessly worked for me until she found the key information that brought the truth to light. Heather is an amazing Attorney. She deserves a great review, and I hope this conveys my respect and admiration for a job well done.

I was represented by Heather for about 9 months. Knowing Heather was in my corner put me at ease during what would should have been a high stress situation. I was impressed with her professionalism, experience, and persistence to beat the prosecution team. Like others have commented, she was not judgmental at all. Furthermore, she was upfront and honest about the potential outcomes of my situation. She is also very meticulous and took note of each and every mistake the prosecution team made. Her hard work led to the prosecution team dismissing all charges against me and taking the easy way out (GOMOR). I can now continue to live the rest of my life in peace!

I had an extremely comprehensive uphill battle and faced involuntary separation. Several other attorney’s (including JAG) told me I had no chance of succeeding. With over 15 years of service and my career, retirement, and reputation on the line; I contacted Heather. I can’t even begin to explain how much better I felt after just our first meeting. She is very knowledgeable, personable, and most importantly…she will represent you! I ultimately retired from the service with all benefits intact. I will always have her contact info on hand.

Heather is an outstanding lawyer. She really cares about her clients and will work tireless to get the outcome her client deserves. She made a very stressful time in my life easier due to her professionalism and uncanny military law acumen. I hired her to help me with a military litigation on short notice and she provided an outstanding product. Even after my case had concluded, she has provided me counsel on further litigation and personal matters. I highly recommend Heather to handle your litigation issues.

Our son had a problem and we were referred to her by JAG. She was so kind and understanding. She and her staff made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. We know when we left her office that all would be well. It is all well now. She is a great lawyer. Thanks Heather and Kim.

Heather Straub gave me excellent advice on what I could do prior to my court date for DUI. Heather not only advised me on what the court would be looking for in regards to what I could do on my own behalf prior to actual court date but also bolstered my confiedence to stay focused and calm during proceedings. My case resulted in a wreckless driving charge and I cannot thank Heather enough for her invaluable counsel. If you need a dedicated and accomplished lawyer, call Heather Straub.
