Attorney Heather Rubin always knew she would be an attorney. She grew up in a family of attorneys and by the time she graduated from college, she knew that law school was calling her. Her love of research, writing, and education made being an attorney the obvious next step! Her incredible attention to detail and ability to listen to and understand her clients sets her apart from the rest. Her life experience allows her an understanding that family law is often a last resort for people navigating incredibly stressful and emotional life situations. This unique point of view allows her to sympathize with her clients in a way that a lot of other attorneys cannot. Heather likes to say that she “carries the legal burden” so her clients can “carry the emotional burden.” She knows how difficult even just an initial consultation can be and she does her best to provide an environment of trust and communication right off the bat.
Heather has over 17 years of experience in various areas of law, including family law, trust and estate law, and litigation. In addition, Heather works closely with families going through dependency and neglect cases. She relishes the opportunity to be a voice to children who wouldn’t otherwise be heard through through the legal system. Before joining Divorce Matters, Heather even ran her own law firm as a solo practitioner! Her love of law has allowed her to continue her legal education throughout her career, as well as volunteer with Metro Volunteer Lawyers.
While Heather is an expert in all areas of family law, she is particularly adept at handling high conflict cases. Her expertise allows her to remain calm and fight for the very best for her clients, especially if there are children involved. This is especially true in allocation of parental responsibility and post-decree cases.
In her free time, Heather is a competitive marathon runner and has participated in both the Boston and New York City Marathons!
