Heather R. Bredeson

The workplace is based on human relationships; I help people and businesses navigate them.

My Approach

Employment law affects nearly everyone at some point in their lives. I appreciate being able to help companies work through challenges or make important decisions about their policies, because these have a great impact on the employees. One of the joys of my practice is that I get to listen to people share their goals, thoughts and concerns, understand these in the context of the greater business strategy, and then find a way to work within the law to achieve my clients’ goals as a company and as an employer.

I knew early in my legal career that I would focus on employment counseling, and I use all of that past experience in a variety of situations to inform and guide each new representation. Each employee and business has a story to tell, and by seeing the full picture, I am better able to guide clients to long-lasting employee-employer relationships.

Outside of the office, I enjoy being involved in sports, especially basketball and slow pitch softball, and I enjoy cooking with my husband and going on walks with our rescue mutt Ruby.
