hEATHER R. JOHNSTON
ATTORNEY AT LAW
BOARD CERTIFIED FAMILY LAW SPECIALIST

Attorney Johnston received her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2002 and was admitted to the practice of law in Ohio in 2005. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Organizational Communications as an honor student at the University of Akron. 

She has served as a mediator and is certified in Collaborative Divorce. She received her certification as a Family Law Specialist from the Ohio State Bar Association in 2015 and is the only Family Law Attorney in Portage County with such a certification. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the Akron Bar Association.

An Experienced Certified Family Law Specialist

Attorney Johnston strives to meet her clients’ goals in an efficient and cost-effective manner, providing personalized attention and individualized guidance. She can provide the best strategy for negotiated resolutions, contentious cases or collaborative matters. She will be there every step of the way, fighting for you and finding viable solutions.

Her caliber as an experienced Family Law Specialist attracts a lot of clients with complex cases, or with previously mishandled cases:

“There is very little I haven’t seen in my thirteen years as a family law attorney. I handled a lot of cases from the get go and can quickly determine the strength and weaknesses of a case, and the strategy that will give the best chance to my clients.

I also handle a lot of cases from clients who put their fate in the hands of a generalist or an attorney who did not necessarily have the experience needed to address the issues effectively or missed some important points. It then becomes difficult and costly to fix the problems, if not impossible.

There is no shortcut in family law, and cutting corners always ends up being expensive. Think about it carefully.”
