Client Recommendations

We had a legal issue, and Heather Cullen and her team handled the matter with great professionalism. I was quite impressed with how organized and easy our entire process ended up being! I always hear horror stories when it comes to legal issues, but this was not the case with us. I believe we got service above and beyond what we paid for. I would call again this office if another issue presents itself in the future. P.S. Jill is the best!

The office treated me like family!

I was so scared when I walked into the Law Office of Heather Cullen. But, as I sat in the lobby and talked to the receptionist (Lori) she calmed me down and chit chatted with me for a few moments. Then Amanda walked out and introduced herself and took me back into her office for our consultation. I was immediately at ease with Amanda and as the consultation went on I understood my issues more clearly and felt more secure about the process. My case took about a year and a half and I never felt like I was bothering anyone when I contacted the office and I could actually hear the smile in Lori’s voice when she would answer the phone. The office is all female and I felt that my case was their case and I never felt alone. I was very happy with my representation and the outcome. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

Valerie was a great attorney and the Law Office of Heather Cullen helped me stay in control of my divorce. The office made sure I had all of the documents that came in and out of the office. I never felt confused or overwhelmed. I also loved that they gave me chocolate every time I went into the office – what a great way to help with stress! The office was outstanding and I would refer them to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

Outstanding!

My case was very scary – I had never been through any kind of legal issues and a full blown divorce wasn’t the best way to get my feet wet. Heather represented me in my case for many years and always was able to balance the aggressiveness required with the compassion that I needed. She has a kind staff and I was always able to get ahold of a real person whenever I needed anything. I recently had to use the office again on a modification issue and Amanda Naples was the attorney assigned to my case for the issue and she was impressive also. The attorneys are all well-educated and well-spoken and I have felt protected and well-represented each time I have had to go to court. My experience with the Law Office of Heather Cullen was excellent.

The Law Office of Heather Cullen was impressive and excellent! Great Results!

The Law Office of Heather Cullen provided the best legal representation I could ask for in my divorce case. Heather Cullen, Jillian Duggan-Herd and Amanda Naples all provided legal help on my case and made me feel total protection (like a TV legal team). Jillian was available for me non-stop for the entire year. My divorce is now complete; but, I am keeping Jill and Heather as my attorneys so that I feel safe until my kids are 18 and I don’t have to worry about being alone if I ever have custody issues. Luckily, if I need any legal help I won’t have to travel far now that the Riverside firm has an office in Temecula also. Hands down best attorneys in Riverside County !

Amanda Naples represented myself in a custody contest with my ex-spouse, from June of 2015 through July of 2016. My case involved a court ordered 730 Custody Evaluation of my children. Amanda, did a stellar job of representing me.

Without getting into the messy details, there are a few things I would like to comment on regarding my representation by Amanda Naples:

  • Amanda is very responsive, and I never had to wait more than a ½ a day to hear back from her. She was quite busy at various times, but always made time to either e-mail me or call me in a timely manner.
  • I was a little reluctant to hire Amanda, as she was only a year or two out of law school when I went to meet with her. But, after our initial meeting, I had a good feeling. And, I made a great decision in hiring her. Although a little on the green side, she is very knowledgeable in her profession. She was very good at researching topics and/or getting 2nd opinions when needed in our case. She never once, made a wrong decision, or made a bad move in my lengthy case as a result.
  • Amanda, has impeccable legal writing skills. She had to write a number of legal documents during my case, and did a marvelous job of capturing what we wanted to say, and putting it in legal context, which was clear, concise, and made sense to me, and more importantly to the judge.
  • Amanda is very able to think on her feet, and react to unexpected situations. One particular example, were a few curveballs thrown at us the morning of our court date by the opposing party. Amanda quickly got on the phone to her peers, as well as did some quick legal research on the subject; and ended up making the opposing counsel look foolish to the Judge, who quickly sided with Amanda and shot down the opposing counsel’s request.
  • Amanda is genuinely concerned about her clients. She surely hears a lot of he said, she said, drama. But, she never treated me simply as a client. She treated me like a human being who was going through a hard time. In closing, there is no doubt that Amanda Naples is simply a terrific attorney. I would bet a lot of money in Vegas, that she ends up being one of the top Family Practice Attorney’s in Riverside County over the next 10 years. And, perhaps the biggest complement I can pay her, as she fought for and helped me win custody of my two daughters is: as a father I would be extremely proud if my daughters grew up to be just like her.

I saw an article about the successes of the Heather Cullen Law firm and decided to make an appt. I was given an appt with Valerie Murphy. My case was complicated and I was worried I would have trouble getting the court to modify my existing order. Valerie assured me I had appropriate cause to modify and helped me establish an effective game plan going into court. Valerie was prepared, agressive when needed, and let the other party speechless. I am incredibly blessed and happy to have worked with her. I can't thank her enough for being so professional and making me feel important. If I ever need to return to family law court I will not have anyone else on my team but Valerie. Thank you for all your hard work !

The legal team at The Law Office of Heather Cullen is wonderful. Heather Cullen and Valerie Murphy were great! My issues included divorce, kids, domestic violence, support and property. I never felt alone. I never got caught up in the phone system pressing buttons a real person answered the phone and helped me every time. I did have to borrow money to get my case going but the legal part of my case never got tangled up with the money part. This is a great office and I will always have them on my side.

My experience with my attorney was outstanding. My attorney, Jillian Duggan-Herd was extremely competent, plenty of background experience to help me know what I would and could expect, she was encouraging, compassionate, always available and made this painful process go as smoothly as possible. Family Law has got to be one of the most difficult fields of law and the people who work in it have to have not just a good legal background but huge doses of caring above and beyond the business level. This law office has it. Always met me with a smile and asked how I was and knew me individually not just as another client. I will always be indebted to Jillian and recommend her and this office to anyone who might need a family law attorney.

Heather represented me in my divorce case. Her entire staff took care to put my needs first. The biggest complaint I have heard from my friends (besides how expensive a divorce is) is that they can never get ahold of their attorney. I did not experience this. I had ongoing contact with the firm and always talked to a live person. If I had to leave a message for my attorney my call was always returned within one day. I never felt alone in the process and my outcome was great also.

I contacted the Law Office of Heather Cullen based on a referral from a friend of mine who is also an attorney. The staff was attentive and the lawyers were extremely knowledgeable. I did interview other attorneys, prior to choosing the Law Office of Heather Cullen, and I did not feel the level of experience or sincerity that I felt with this office. I felt that each time I contacted the office I was made a priority. I felt secure that I was being represented by experienced and compassionate attorneys. I highly recommend this firm.

I met with Attorney Cullen prior to filing for divorce. She immediately made me feel more secure about the divorce process.

Heather Cullen has been my attorney for many years. She has been my advocate throughout my divorce case and my post-divorce custody and support hearings. I have been blessed by the hard work and dedication the office has shown to me and my children. I have had the pleasure of being represented by Heather for many years and also the pleasure of additional assistance in my matter when Attorney Duggan-Herd and Attorney Murphy each represented me and advocated on my behalf in my case. I watched Heather's firm grow from the small one office location during her early years of practicing law to her beautiful downtown building with her full office of legal staff and a wonderful support system. I feel like this office is part of my family. They go through the ups and downs with me and always care about the outcome and, most importantly, they care during the case and after. I never feel like I am alone during my case.

When I hired the Law Office of Heather Cullen I went to court on an emergency hearing and immediately got sole legal and physical custody of my children as well as exclusive use of my home. I thought Heather was too expensive so I replaced her with a different attorney. Within one week my husband took me back to court and without Heather to defend me, I lost custody of my children and ended up with visitation. I returned to Heather's office and it has been an uphill struggle to get back what I lost. I should have never left the Law Office of Heather in the first place. I wish I could rewind time to change my mistake – I have learned the hard way that you get what you pay for! Representation by The Law Office of Heather Cullen is the best purchase I have ever made!

I was very comfortable with this firm. They made the experience turn out to be not as bad as I expected it to be. I walked away from my divorce with my dignity intact and did not feel like my divorce lawyer ended up with more of my money than I did. I felt like this firm protected me and treated me like a person at the same time (instead of just another paycheck). .

This was the first time I needed a lawyer. I was taken care of every step of the way. My calls were returned quickly and I never felt confused with the process.

I was recently represented in a Guardianship case by the Law Office of Heather Cullen. The services they provided were not only professional but had a very family oriented quality. They truly care about their clients and their issues. Ms. Cullen's knowledge of Federal Indian Law was very helpful to me in my circumstance. They were always friendly and answered my correspondence in a timely manor. Ms. Valarie Murphy represented me in court and did an excellent job of pleading my case, as well as keeping me informed of what to expect at each stage of the legal process. Although, I hope I never need them, I would retain their services again. I highly recommend their services.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! The first time I saw Jillian, I was sitting in the courtroom awaiting my own hearing. She represented her client with power and class but did not attack the other parent with the immature issues you often see in family court. In my opinion, she did her client and his child a great service. Recently, I've met with her for a consultation. She gave me more information that I could have ever asked for in that one hour. She was extremely honest and informative, even to the point of suggesting that I not retain her services due to the loss vs gain, what attorney does that?? Going through a divorce is an emotional rollercoaster and to sit with a level headed, knowledgeable individual was refreshing. I would highly suggest that anyone in this unfortunate situation, meet with her. Jillian will definitely be my first go to person for any legal advice/representation. I cant even begin to explain the sense of relief I feel after meeting with her.
