Her areas of focus include fiduciary litigation matters such as guardianship of adults and minors, elder law and trust and estate litigation. Heather has substantial experience in a full range of family law matters including complex issues related to business and property valuations, division of marital property and custody and visitation issues. A shareholder in the Commercial Litigation Department, her fine work and reputation led to her appointment as Co-Chair of the Family Law and Fiduciary practice group.
Heather also assists families in unique and challenging circumstances regarding issues related to disabled adults and individuals suffering from mental health issues. In addition to her fiduciary and family law practice, she regularly advises social workers, nurses, psychologists and psychiatrists regarding personal and business issues.
