Heather Joy Ross photoIf you ask any lawyer at The Ross Firm “who’s the best lawyer in the shop,” the answer is Heather Joy Ross. Disciplined, ethically rigorous and highly intelligent, she is the definition of the consummate advocate. Throughout her career Heather has been prepared, knowledgeable and determined. This approach earned her the reputation as a “go to” lawyer in the region for men and women alike. Spouses often raced to retain Heather after their relationship broke down. Whether this was because they wanted her on their side or to avoid having her against them, is a matter of some debate. It is this reputation and approach that forms the foundation of The Ross Firm today. Heather has been a leader in her profession virtually from her first day at law school: she was a mentor to fellow students, and the recipient of three academic awards. As a practicing lawyer, Heather tackled issues of domestic abuse and gender inequality and broke new ground when both subjects were not in the forefront of legal and judicial thinking. Heather describes herself as a warrior, and says that being a lawyer gave her the tools to help make change, particularly for women and girls in our society. However, her passion and big-picture thinking are larger than her legal practice. The original work she did to help establish safe houses for women in Huron County led to the creation of the Huron Women’s Shelter in Goderich. She’s a founder of South West Region Women’s Law Association. Throughout her career and to the present she is a mentor to women lawyers, helping them realize their professional and personal aspirations.
