About David Scott Heier Esq
First practiced law as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Marine Corps for three years gaining extensive trial advocacy experience. The next two years I worked as the Assistant City Attorney for a suburban city in Franklin County working exclusively in all areas of Ohio municipal law. At the end of that time I entered private practice serving the needs of clients in a wide number of legal areas adding to my breadth of legal experience and knowledge. My practice is now limited to Family Law matters and Divorce.
