Heather Saint is an attorney in Los Angeles, California. Her practice is devoted exclusively to family law. As a result, she has experience with family law cases in matters such as divorce (including the issues of child support, spousal support, child custody, legal separation, attorney’s fees, division of property, valuation of complex business interests, enforcement of Court orders, etc.), paternity matters, palimony (Marvin v. Marvin) civil litigation claims, and post-judgment family law issues. Her particular knowledge in the areas of Family Law, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Entertainment Law provides her with a skill set that makes her uniquely qualified to handle high-asset and complicated familial matters as well as smaller and more simplified family law matters.
Heather implements a tactful and economical approach to all of her cases with an aim towards achieving the best possible result for each client. She is equally as comfortable negotiating a settlement agreement as she is litigating a case to its completion. Heather comprehends and is sensitive to the personal and private nature of all the matters she handles for each of her clients.
After graduating from Loyola Law School and successfully passing the California Bar Examination on her first attempt, Heather immediately commenced practicing family law with Robert Nachshin at the Law Offices of Robert J. Nachshin, P.C.
Prior to joining the Law Offices of Robert J. Nachshin, P.C., Heather gained a significant amount of legal experience working as a Clerk at Levin Law Corp.—an Entertainment firm which dealt primarily with the negotiations and drafting of production contracts for major motion pictures. This experience not only offered Heather a great deal of exposure to the inner workings of contract law but it also taught her the importance of confidentiality. Additionally, Heather has received 40 hours of training in Collaborative Law with a focus on divorce and 88 hours of mediation training.
Heather received her bachelor’s degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution, and Peacebuilding with a focus in Sociology from California State University of Dominguez Hills where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. Heather went on to attend Loyola Law School where she received a General Merit Scholarship. During her tenure at Loyola Law School, Heather had an article published, titled “Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act: The True Culprit of Internet Defamation”, in the Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review where she was a Production Editor.
When Heather is not handling family law matters, she enjoys spending time with her husband Joshua and their dog Tuxedo. She also enjoys painting and exploring new areas of Southern California.
