Heidi joined the firm’s Minneapolis office in 2010 as a paralegal intern and has moved her way up the ranks to paralegal, assisting the attorneys in cases involving Wage & Hour and Consumer Protection. Maintaining client contact and case filings fill a large part of Heidi’s day-to-day activities, and her energy and dedication are known by all who encounter her.
Heidi is the lead paralegal working on the Target Security Breach case, assisting attorneys as they represent banks and other financial institutions affected by the largest data security breach in the United States. She also supports the attorneys with client contact and filings for the Hepatitis C outbreak lawsuit, and GAF Timberline Shingle cases. Heidi played a significant role in the legal team that successfully challenged FedEx’s independent contractor model, assisting attorneys as they represented 141 Illinois drivers in a lawsuit brought under federal and Illinois wage and hour laws. Her optimism and go-getter attitude make her a valuable addition to the firm and deserving recipient of the 2012 ZR Star award. She is trusted by the senior partners of the firm in handling tasks as they arise, and is more than willing to lend a hand to anyone in the office who needs assistance.
Heidi received her Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies from North Hennepin Community College in December 2011, and a Bachelor’s Degree at Metro State with a focus in legal studies in 2014. Away from ZR, Heidi spends any free moment with her nieces and nephews and also unwinds from her busy work week by being active, attending sporting events and traveling.
