A former associate attorney in the Allentown office of Post & Schell P.C., Heather honed her litigation, writing, and research skills as part of the firm’s esteemed casualty group. Although Heather valued the experience she gained working at a large law firm, she recognized her favorite part of the job was the interaction she had with individual clients. Shortly after that, Heather left her position serving corporate clients to develop a practice where could work with individuals and families.

Specifically, Heather wanted to focus on helping young families plan for their futures and protect their assets. At a young age, she suddenly lost her mother, and while that event shaped many aspects of Heather’s life, she came to understand and value the importance of estate planning. This understanding stayed with her as she attended college and law school, imploring those around her to prepare and update their estate plans. When Heather decided to leave her job to go out on her own, developing a firm focused on estate planning was the obvious choice. Heather’s practice also focuses on real estate, as the two areas often overlap.

Family means everything to Heather. Changing practice areas and building her own firm have allowed her to spend more time with her family, making her a better attorney for her clients and their families. Now, Heather works tirelessly to provide the security her clients want and need to prepare for their futures.

She hasn’t looked back since.

Philosophy and Background

What if you felt comfortable enough with your lawyer to also consider her a friend? This is one of the tenets upon which Heather bases her practice. She believes it is mutually beneficial for lawyers and clients to build a rapport and grow a deep connection as they work together to achieve the clients’ desired outcome.

Heather’s varied experience as both a practitioner in large and small law, clerk to the Honorable Jane Cairns Murray, and legal researcher illustrated to her how vital relationships are in the practice of law. Most notable is the sense of trust that must serve as the foundation for the attorney-client relationship.

Clients benefit from knowing their lawyer is not only skilled in the letter of the law but also understands the real-life issues at hand and how they translate into everyday situations. Such knowledge can only come from personal accounts, an appreciation for how one event can impact a family in numerous and subtle ways, and an innate capacity for empathy.

As a witness to loss and the healing and strength that comes after, and how preparedness can bring comfort both before and in the aftermath of a traumatic experience, Heather takes an honest approach to offering legal counsel. She listens with open ears and an open heart.

A firm disbeliever in legal jargon and a “stuffy” demeanor, Heather is approachable and straightforward with her clients and speaks in lay terms clients understand so they may appreciate why they have chosen to retain an attorney instead of undertaking a legal challenge alone. The same holds whether her clients are involved in an estate planning matter or a real estate transaction.

The result is a legal experience that resembles the counsel it was intended to be. And a relationship that will last for years to come.

Heather holds a B.A. in psychology from Lycoming College and a J.D. from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
