Raleigh Divorce Law Firm Client Testimonials

Being a "high income" earner, the guidelines for divorce go out the window.
Heather and her team helped me navigate the complex landscape, creating
strategy and solution. Ironically, it worked out for me and my family in
the best possible way. My X and I could focus on co-parenting and raising
our child.

If you find yourself in need of an exceptional lawyer who can deal with a high conflict divorce, custody, child support among other family law matters, then your search is over. I truly believe I was led to Heather and the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm team by divine intervention. My case is labeled a very high conflict case and I do believe that is an understatement. When I walked through those doors at Raleigh Divorce Law Firm for the very first time I was terrified. I had lost everything I believed in and now the person I loved more than myself was trying to take my children and what felt like my last breath. Heather truly listened to me and treated me like someone who really mattered. In that moment, I only began to learn the magnitude of the expertise she possesses and immediately knew I wanted her to be the advocate for not only my interests but those of my most precious possessions, my children. Heather and her entire staff took on my case and have successfully fought with brilliant tenacity. I was not only blessed by Heather's competency and proficiency but Heather was an integral piece in my personal reformation. She brought light and strength to a shattered soul which has allowed me to be the light and strength my children now need. The only regret I have experienced since meeting Heather is that I had not contacted her at the onset of the separation. Don't make my mistake set up your consultation right now.

I can only offer the highest praise and appreciation for Raleigh Divorce Law Firm and recommend them to anyone who is imminently facing or going through the unfortunate circumstances of a divorce or family law legal action.

After working with/investigating other recommended law firms which were high-profile/high cost, it was evident that neither my best interests nor my daughter's was the priority for them.

A serendipitous meeting and conversation with Lauren at a business conference we both were in attendance at made it clear that she was a very different Family Law attorney working for a law firm which had a different perspective, taking a very different and positive approach to serving their clients.

This was particularly important in my situation due to the intentional high-conflict and aggressively adversarial nature of what I was rationally trying to deal with - a situation which had created a very difficult and hostile environment, making the simplest scenarios/issues to resolve, insurmountably complicated.

During the initial consultation, Lauren's professionalism was absolutely evident. Very quickly upon working with her, it was clear that she was the perfect choice to represent me and that I could have complete confidence in her - this being confirmed and proven time after time as new, unavoidable situations developed. Her resolute, positive, steady and compassionate approach, coupled with her unwavering, fierce tenacity, common sense and wonderful insight/wisdom, have allowed us to navigate through the storm, the complications, and the uncertainties of today's family law landscape. These outstanding qualities and her wealth of experience serve her well and have been invaluable in her advice, guidance, and resulted in issues being successfully resolved fairly and quickly in excellent fashion. Lauren is a wonderful advocate whom you definitely want in your corner, especially when the going gets tough.

Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult and trying times someone can face in their life. I was fortunate to have Lauren Hinzey as my attorney. Her compassion, extensive knowledge and professionalism gave me the confidence and reassurance that I could make it through this and get on with my life. Without hesitation I recommend Lauren if you are in this unfortunate situation.

I just completed a successful custody case with the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm. I came to them after a very disappointing experience with another attorney, in which I was paying a great deal of money, but felt as though I had no real advocate acting on behalf of myself or my children. She took on my case only a couple of weeks before my next court date. In the interim, it was Christmas vacation/New Years, and I ran into a situation, before they even began working on my case, where I was unable to have my child returned as scheduled. At the time, Heather was on holiday vacation and Lauren Hinzey returned my call. Within hours of receiving my call, Lauren had sorted out the situation and I was on my way to pick up my child. It was the first time I felt I actually had someone advocating for my children and I. Someone was in the battle...finally. Not only were they in the battle, but they were fighting with the same amount of passion and commitment I had for my children.

I was not able to make any progress with financial matters of child support prior...but Heather was able to double the child support I had been receiving. Heather accomplished more in the first 30 days of taking my case, than I'd seen in 8 months. Not only was she getting things done, but her billing was exceptionally fair. Fortunately, her office has a seamless team working in support of the case and I honestly felt like they handled their tasks as effectively and proficiently as if Heather handled those things herself. She made sure my case was completed as cost effectively as possible, while never sacrificing quality of service.

Beyond her laser focus on the bottom line in the best interest of her clients...she was also able to provide prudent advice at a time when my emotions were running high. I trusted her completely. My case was settled in the final hour, literally before court, but I attribute that to the fact Heather and her team are truly a force to be reckoned with. She actually pursued things I didn't even think of like retroactive child support, so she actually exceeded the amount I was initially seeking.

I trusted Raleigh Divorce Law Firm with what I value most in life...my children, and they handled my interests with the same level of care as an extended part of my family. Trust me...if you're in the heat of battle, this is the team you want in your corner.

I highly recommend the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm to anyone who is in need of a divorce attorney. My divorce is referred to as a "High Conflict" divorce and the experience has not been one I would want anyone else to endure. I had been to an initial conference with another firm and I did not feel my best interests would be well served with that firm. My initial conference with Heather was the complete opposite. Not only was I impressed with her attitude and her professionalism at that initial meeting, I knew I had found the right person for the difficult road ahead. Heather is an experienced divorce attorney and a fantastic person to work with. Her calm and very professional demeanor has made a very difficult time much easier to deal with. The legal services and legal advice I have received from Heather and her firm has been excellent.

No matter whom I speak with at the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm I know I am getting the same high level of professionalism, legal service, or legal advice as I receive directly from Heather.

I am very confident in my selection of the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm to represent me in my divorce and I would highly recommend the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm to anyone who is seeking a divorce attorney. I believe that very strongly and I tell that to anyone and everyone who will listen to me.

If you are reading this, you are about to make one of the most important decisions of your life. Let's face it, no one plans to ever get a divorce and it is especially harder when children are involved. I made so many mistakes by not choosing Heather first! I was naive enough to think "we could work it out without lawyers". He hired one and suddenly I felt like I was hit by a Mack truck! In a hurry I foolishly took the advice of coworkers and hired a firm that "supposedly" had one of the best reputations in the field of Family Law. I would love to name the firm, but will refrain. I can tell you they cared about one thing....billing the heck out of me. I spent over $10,000...all a total waste of money!

Thank God I found Heather through a friend of a friend. She had her work cut out for her. Once Court Orders have been filed, it makes an attorney's work extremely difficult. My son is in one of the best schools in this area! My son is happy and in a very good place. I have Heather to thank for all of that.

I know attorneys sometimes take a lot of heat and criticism but Heather is not like most! Her heart is in this! She cares about her clients and is very passionate about what is best for the children! I literally do not know what I would have done without her! She is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to advocating for her clients! You are in good hands!

If you don't remember anything I said...Hire Heather NOW! I would do anything to go back and do it right the first time.

If you want to sleep good at night knowing you are being taken care of, again...HIRE HEATHER!

Attorney Heather Williams has represented me for several years during my lengthy as well as complex separation and divorce. Her expertise, knowledge and dedication have not only been beneficial to me in the legal arena but in my personal life as well. Due to Heather's efforts during this financial and emotional difficult time I have been able to focus on what's most important in my life - my kids. She has assisted me with making some very difficult decisions and encouraged me every step of the way. Attorney Heather Williams and her team are certainly a force to be reckoned with and I feel extremely fortunate to have them fighting for me!

When divorce is imminent, it is hard to think clearly about what is the best or "right" thing to do. It is important to have an attorney who can guide you through the court system and end up with something that can work for everyone involved. From the onset, Heather was more than an attorney for me. She understood that I needed closure from my divorce 5 years earlier. Heather really knows her stuff, she is competent and quite capable. I wouldn't want to go through this again but I would definitely pick Heather to get me through the process from start to finish.

Hands down, I couldn't have a better attorney than Lauren Hinzey with RDLF. Ms. Hinzey proved herself to be the custody expert. She was very knowledgeable, informative and made herself readily available to answer any of my questions or address any of my concerns. Ms. Hinzey was very confident from the beginning about a positive outcome and she delivered. Thanks to her I was able to pursue the legal method and successfully secured a legal agreement in the best interest of my child. I highly recommend her.
~Samantha K


RDLF handled my divorce this past year. When we started I did not know how the law worked for such an event. It was a great education and I felt supported all the way. I would recommend RDLF to anyone who finds themselves in the situation. I felt firmly represented and knew I could count on the advice that I was getting.
~Rich L


My experience with Heather Williams and Lauren Hinzy at RDLF was exactly what I expected after my initial consultation. Experienced, Professional and take charge Attorneys with the compassion to handle the most sensitive and difficult family law matters. Heather and her staff kept me abreast every step of the way and made sure they were accessible at all times. Their ability to navigate through the system and put together a case which delivered an outcome that was expected speaks volumes. I think I speak for all men when I say the thought of entering a court room fighting for custody is a bit scary as it's thought that men don't stand a chance. Heather and her staff put that myth to bed by providing outstanding legal services and professional and knowledgeable experience. I can't thank them enough for what they were able to do for me and my kids.
