Cases are won and lost on the facts, and Heidi is a meticulous investigator, digging deep into each matter so that she can properly assess the merits, formulate an appropriate strategy, and effectively advise her clients about likely outcomes as early in the proceedings as possible. She is driven to obtain the best possible results in even the most untenable situations.
Heidi’s representation of public and private school clients demonstrates both the depth and breadth of her practice. On any given day, she’s contending with employee terminations and wrongful discharge allegations, student and faculty disciplinary actions, personal injury and sexual abuse claims, and civil rights violations. Because students and their families are frequently involved or impacted by these often highly charged situations, Heidi must not only navigate the law and facts, but also guide her clients through intense public scrutiny and media attention.
Known for her aggressive advocacy, pragmatic and informed counsel, and high professional standards, Heidi has been selected as a Michigan Super Lawyer year over year, and has earned an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell, an honor determined by her peers. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois, and her law degree from Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law.
