Heather’s practice includes estate planning and administration as well as commercial and residential real estate work. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience with others and enjoys giving presentations and seminars.

Over the years, she has developed extensive experience in the area of estate planning and administration, which allows her to assist clients at some of their most difficult times. She is constantly updating her knowledge as a member of S.T.E.P. and the Ottawa Estate Planning Council.

As a true Maritimer, born in Springhill, Nova Scotia, Heather, of course, headed west. She started her university career at the University of Saskatchewan and then started inching her way back east, stopping to attend and complete her undergraduate at the University of Manitoba in 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours). She then moved to Ottawa in 1990 to begin her formal legal education, earning her law degree from the University of Ottawa in 1994. She was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1995.

Heather’s practice started as an articling student with the firm Gold Gulliver, which evolved to Gold Gilbert Mann and then Mann & Associates. In late 2003, she helped form the current partnership, Mann Lawyers LLP.

When not at the office, Heather enjoys spending time with family at home or the cottage or taking out her frustrations on the volleyball court with Women & Sport.
