Heather C. Wright is the founding partner of The Wright Firm in Atlanta, where she works tirelessly to bring about workable solutions for her clients’ business and family matters. As an entrepreneur herself, she couples her litigation skills and business acumen to help corporate and family clients make strategic decisions with a focus on their end-goals. As a registered and experienced mediator and arbitrator, Heather is adept at identifying the most direct path to success for disputing parties, working to minimize the stress and fallout that can sometimes accompany these matters. As much as her ability to negotiate efficiently and effectively, her care and compassion garner appreciation from clients, who recommend her to colleagues, friends, and family.

Heather’s passion and drive follow her outside the courtroom as well. She is founding president of the Buckhead Business Foundation, and a past president of the Buckhead Business Association. Her broad skill set and varied experiences have combined with her dynamic nature to make Heather an effective and entertaining speaker who is in great demand by a variety of audiences. In the business community, she often lectures and mentors small businesses as an instructor with SCORE Atlanta.

Heather’s vision centers on the need to riddle out puzzles, act with intent, and find solutions that REALLY work for clients. “I was always interested in politics and the law growing up, specifically the questions of who we are, and how we can best resolve our differences and our problems. It only made sense to attend law school and become a professional problem-solver.”

She began her legal studies at Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law, earning awards both as a legal writer and as a fierce advocate in Moot Court proceedings. Following law school, she clerked for Cobb County Superior Court Judge James G. Bodiford, assisting the Court with business, criminal, and family law matters of all varieties. She then worked at some of Atlanta’s most prestigious law firms before founding The Wright Firm, LLC in 2005. By 2008, she had been sworn into the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States by Chief Justice John Roberts and received multiple prestigious recognitions as a Rising Star by Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine and as one of Georgia’s Legal Elite by Georgia Trend Magazine.

Away from the office, Heather is a Black Belt in American Freestyle Karate and has taught self-defense and karate for adults and children, helping others learn to fight for themselves. She is also actively involved in the Atlanta business community and her church, donating her time and expertise to both.
