Heather Lynn Schmidt helped make a difficult situation a little easier. 
During our first meeting is was apparent that she wanted to understand the full story to best point me in the right direction. 
After that first appointment I knew I was in good hands. Always being responsive to my questions I felt completely at ease and comfortable that she was taking care of what she said she would. Her experience shows in her proactiveness and meeting preparation. Although my case was complicated the opposing council never seemed to grasp and understand the details as Heather did. 
I would recommend Heather to anyone looking for attorney in any aspect of family law

I highly recommend her for any bread-winning mother going through a separation with children. Heather not only helped me with my divorce (slow and long process not at our doing), but also with spousal support challenges, child support and child custody issues. As we hit a few bumps through the "Injustice System", we were able to communicate well and move forward. Heather knows the system, processes and people, and was effective at guiding for the next upcoming step. She handles issues concisely and with care. Glad to have Heather on my side through such an unknown and emotional process.

Heather is the Shark! She has been very aggressive when needed and when appropriate. She has listened to my needs and concerns as the client, but also has been able to balance my requests, yet be diligent in looking out for my best interests as my attorney. I can't say enough because I was in a major, at least in my terms, a major custody battle and she prevailed or rather pulled through for me and my son! I can't thank her enough and spread the good word about Heather and her level of knowledge and expertise in family law regarding divorce and custody. It just flows and comes naturally for Heather-there is no hesitation! She knows her stuff! I don't believe I would be where I am today without Heather-I meant this! These words are expressed with the sincerest gratitude!
