Located in Dunedin, the firm’s practice encompasses adoption, divorce, collaborative law, paternity, support, modification, relocation, pre-nuptial/post-nuptial agreement.

Heather Gurley, Esq. grew up in the Midwest and ultimately graduated from high school in North Dakota. Not wanting to live a life of shoveling snow, Heather decided to move to Florida and eventually found her way to the Clearwater/St. Petersburg area which has been her home for over 15 years. Having gained extensive experience as a paralegal, in various areas of law, Heather decided to return to school to obtain her law degree. Heather obtained her B.A. in History from the University of South Florida and then obtained her law degree from Stetson University College of Law.
As a single mother attending law school and working full time as a paralegal, Heather often joked that her future biographies would lack the impressive achievements and participations in various organizations other attorneys would have because her priority was ensuring she and her son had a roof over their heads and something more than ramen to eat.
After law school, Heather was employed with a marital and family law firm where she not only gained extensive litigation experience, but she also discovered she truly enjoyed the practice of marital and family law. In 2017, Heather opened Gurley Law, P.A. and the firm continues to grow.
Heather is certified as a Family Law Mediator by the Supreme Court of Florida. Heather is a member of Clearwater Bar Association and currently chairs the Family Law Section.

When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and her two boys.
