I recommend Heidi Stewart for your legal concerns. She is professional, efficient, personable and respectful of your time and privacy. I was very happy with the outcome and consideration I received from Heidi's legal practice. Dianne Rose
Heidi has helped us in multiple ways with various legal situations throughout the years. She's always handled herself with dignity, professionalism and compassion in our interactions. Heidi is a good listener who seeks to find the best solution for all parties, without pressing her own agenda. She's also got a great sense of humor and is not your "typical lawyer type.” Gail Forsyth
