Her expertise stems from her practical legal experience in the field and her background in grass-roots activism on behalf of women and immigrants.
Heather was named in Los Angeles Magazine and Law & Politics Magazine "Super Lawyer: Rising Star" for excellence in immigration law four times to date. The Rising Star designation is an honor granted to only 2.5% of all Southern California Lawyers each year. This is an exceptional honor, given that Southern California has the second largest population of lawyers in the US behind New York and less than 1% of immigration lawyers receive this honor.

She is a nationally published author and attorney trainer on immigration issues. She co-authored the first-ever article on the new "V visa" and recently wrote on the subject of Conditional Green Card Waivers in Forms & Fundamentals, two key training books for other immigration attorneys that are published by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the pre-eminent, leading organization of immigration attorneys nationwide. She has been internationally published on various family-immigration issues including conditional green card waivers, marriage-based immigration, and options for abused immigrants. Her articles have also been published in major bar association publications including Los Angeles Lawyer Magazine and The Orange County Lawyer Magazine. She is currently serving on the American Immigration Lawyers Association's Publication Board, overseeing scholarly writings and training material development for other immigration attorneys.
