Knowledgeable and Hard Working
Heather represented us on a DUI. She thoroughly reviewed the case information, kept us in the loop on what was occurring and worked hard to get the best outcome under the circumstances. Heather answered all of our questions and provided us with realistic and practical information to assist us in this process. She was extremely pleasant, helpful and had a wealth of knowledge in helping us navigate the unfortunate situation that we were in. I highly recommend her to anyone in the Fairbanks area looking for legal assistance.

Best In Fairbanks
Heather was a true pleasure to work with, in my trying time. She helped me along the way explaining every step and walking me through every situation. By far the best in town. All tough I hope I never need a lawyer again. If I do, there is no question who I will be calling.

Nothing But Regret
I had what was a slam dunk situation (described by Ms Brown and another respected lawyer) in my favor and the way Ms. Brown wrote up the paperwork, it not only got denied by the court. It was filled out wrong and I had to go and scratch out parts of her work and rewrite parts of it. Once my situation was denied, I tried calling Ms Brown and I couldn't even get a return call from her. I hope local residents avoid this attorney. So many better options out there and you deserve so much better treatment from an attorney.

Response from Heather Brown April 4, 2018
I appreciate your feedback, and I am sorry that you have had a less than desirable experience with either myself and/or my firm. Unfortunately, no matter is ever a "slam dunk situation," thus this matter does not sound familiar to me. I strive for the utmost client satisfaction in every case, and if I can offer any further assistance or clarification for you, please don't hesitate to contact me directly to discuss your specific concerns.
