Client Reviews

I loved working with Heather. I was going through a divorce after a thirty-year marriage and I was scared and confused. I initially was working with a different lawyer at a different firm, she was scattered and never got back to me when I had questions. Someone referred me to Heather Dyer and from the first conversation, I felt safe and heard. She was there for me every step of the way, answering my questions in a logical, caring way. I love the way she gets things done and doesn’t mess around dragging things out. When I had to have meetings with my ex-husband and his lawyer she impressed me with her strength and knowledge. She was there for me. I would recommend Heather to everyone I care about.
And in the future, if I ever need advice, she is the one I will turn to.
