Attorney Profile

Heidi (Weinzetl) Bassett practices in both the appellate and trial courts throughout Florida.  Heidi's practice includes appellate brief writing and oral argument, training of other lawyers, trial practice and assisting other trial lawyers to preserve trial court error for appeal.  Heidi gained knowledge and experience through work with real estate and foreclosure law firms in addition to large regional law firms.  She decided to leave the world of Big Law in 2016 to start her own practice, and continues to represent clients in appeals and trial, as well as contract disputes and business start ups.  This new practice permits Heidi to be able to offer quality legal services to a broader variety of clients, while ensuring reasonable legal fees and a relationship-based approach to practicing law.

Heidi has litigated more than 200 appeals throughout Florida, and has tried more than 100 cases in the trial courts.  She is licensed to practice in the state courts of Florida and Minnesota, the Middle and Southern District Courts of Florida, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.  Heidi is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubbell.
