The Heidemann Law Firm Wrote 5 of 6 Passing Bar Exam Appeals in the State of Michigan

Only six bar exam appeals passed in the state of Michigan for the July 2016 Michigan bar exam. We are honored to have written 5 of the 6 of those passing bar exam appeals.

Who passed the Michigan bar exam on appeal?

One person passed from Wayne State University Law School. One passed from University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. One passed from Cooley Law School, and three passed from Michigan State University Law School.

We wrote all of the passing appeals from Wayne State University Law School, University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, Cooley Law School, and two of the three passing appeals from Michigan State University Law School.  We are thrilled to have written five of the six passing Michigan bar exam appeals in the state.

While we are happy and honored to have written so many passing appeals, we were disappointed that only six appeals passed in the state of Michigan. Receiving appeal results is always bittersweet as not all of our clients, who we truly believe deserved to pass on appeal, end up passing on appeal. Thus, we hope that the Michigan Board of Law Examiners’ grants more well-deserving appeals moving forward.

How do we know only six people passed?

Statistics before appeals reveal that 452 of the 695 Michigan bar exam takers passed the Michigan bar exam. These statistics were not posted publicly online. However, they were sent out to law schools. Statistics after appeals (which you can find here) reveal that 458 of the 695 takers passed. Thus, six people in total passed on appeal.

Our clients who passed are thrilled to officially be licensed attorneys!

Here are some things that our clients had to say about us this administration and in past administrations:

Failing the bar exam by 1 point is not one’s best moment.  I was devastated to learn that I failed the July 2016 Michigan Bar Exam by one point. I contacted Ashley Heidemann immediately and she urged me to get my essays back from the Board of Law Examiners. I received my essays back on a Saturday and sent them to Ashley and she reviewed them right away! Ashley showed great compassion and a deep understanding of what I was going through. She sent back a detailed analysis of each question that I should and should not appeal. From that moment on I knew she was the right choice to write my appeal. Ashley and her partner Meagan both go above and beyond in their process to make sure they write the best possible appeal to get you your license.  Ashley and Meagan would both contact me every 2-3 days to inform me on the status of the appeal. Ashley always replies to e-mails and phone calls very promptly!  When I met with Meagan she allowed me to review my appeal with as much time as I needed.  Ashley and Meagan are both very professional and there is no doubt in my mind that they are the best in the business when it comes to Michigan Bar Exam Appeals.  I received the one point I needed on appeal and I am so happy I trusted Ashley Heidemann. It would be reckless for anyone to not go with Ashley Heidemann for their Bar Exam Appeal.  Thanks to her I am finally at ease and she is the reason why I am going to be practicing law. – Appealed and Passed the July 2016 Michigan bar exam

I was devastated when I realized my name was not on the bar examination pass list. After receiving the official letter, confirming that I failed by only one point, I decided it was worth it to file an appeal. My boss suggested that I contact The Heidemann Law Firm. They responded quickly to all of my emails and telephone calls, even after business hours and on weekends. They were always professional, extremely knowledgable and incredibly nice!

Ashley and Meagan told me that there were arguments they could make on appeal, after reviewing my essays. They answered all of my questions and explained that there were never any guarantees, because of the inherent risk of appealing bar exam results.

I decided to appeal, with the help of The Heidemann Law Firm, and I am very happy that I did. They went above and beyond, providing exceptional service, during the entire appeal process. I was completely at ease, knowing that they were handling my appeal as if it were their own.  I only needed one point and ended up receiving three points on appeal and passing with a 136. I was extremely happy that I did not have to sit for the bar exam again.Thanks to The Heidemann Law Firm, my appeal was successful and I am licensed!  – Appealed and Passed the February 2016 Michigan bar exam 

I’d had the pleasure of working with Ashley in the past for tutoring so when I realized I was one point away from passing the bar exam, she was the first person I contacted. Ashley has always been extremely professional and is quick to respond to emails. In addition to this, she is an amazing person who will go out of her way to ensure you are comfortable from the moment you walk in the door. The appeal Ashley and her team wrote was extremely thorough. I could tell they put their heart and soul into it even though there was a likely chance only the first question would be read when the board determined whether to grant me the needed point. I highly recommend Ashley and the team at Heidemann Law Firm for any of your matters, but especially for the Bar Appeal process. – Appealed and Passed the February 2016 Michigan bar exam

Ashley and her team provided exceptional service and support during a very stressful time.  I was devastated and embarrassed about failing the bar exam for a third time.  I emailed Ashley before 7 a.m. on a Saturday and she responded within 30 minutes.  Ashley made me feel better about my situation and I was certain that she would only take my case if she felt there was a likelihood of a good outcome.  After evaluating my score report and later my answers, Ashley agreed to take my case.  From that point forward, I knew that I had an advocate in Ashley.  She was professional, kind, and confident.  Hiring Ashley to handle my appeal allowed me to focus on other things.  I would recommend her without hesitation.  I feel fortunate that Ashley was on my side.  She got me the point I needed to pass the bar!  Many thanks to Ashley and her team for a job done exceptionally well! –Appealed and Passed the July 2015 Michigan bar exam

When I got my results back from the July 2015 bar exam, I was devastated to find out that I did not pass. I needed three points to pass and contacted many attorneys to see if appealing my score was feasible. After getting different opinions from multiple lawyers, I felt most confident with Ashley. From start to finish she made the process so easy for me. I was more at ease, and felt hopeful but still had the thought of losing on appeal. My appeal was well written; it was extremely organized, easy to read, and still contained a sufficient amount of detail. Every time I called, texted, or emailed Ashley I got a prompt reply. I put all my faith into her and I could not have been happier with the end result. I got the three points that I needed and did not have to go through the torture of taking the bar exam again. I am forever grateful for Ashley! -Appealed and Passed the July 2015 Michigan bar exam 

I emphatically recommend Ashley to any person interested in appealing Michigan bar exam results. She provides the perfect combination of knowledge, skill, and unwaivering determination. Ashely genuinely cares about her clients’ best interests and will explore every option at her disposal. I can sincerely state such things because I passed the Michigan bar exam due to Ashley’s assistance. On appeal, I received the one point I needed to pass.  I felt at ease throughout the appeals process. Even without my solicitation, Ashely remained in contact with me–she provided key updates and described her courses of action. She quickly responded to every question I asked. Ashley also provided a copy of the brief; her attention to detail was quite impressive. Altogether, I couldn’t have asked for more. If you wish to successfully appeal the Michigan bar exam, please look no further than Ashley.  -Appealed and Passed the July 2015 Michigan bar exam 

The day I found out my Bar result, I contacted Excellence for Law School and this was one of the best decisions I ever made. Ashley is amazing! She and her team got me 2 points back on appeal for the July 2015 Michigan bar exam. Ashley indisputably is the most diligent, meticulous, and result oriented lawyer. She so much cared about my case the entire process. She first explained the entire process in great detail. She then kept me posted about the progress of the appeal throughout the process. In addition, during the waiting period, whenever I felt nervous, disappointed, or had questions, I would talk to her and she would promptly and patiently reply and give me hope and energy. Ashley also helped me to find a judge for my swearing-in-ceremony (as I was in a rush). In sum, she is more than just an attorney. I truly enjoyed her service as well as her personality. I highly recommend her if you need to appeal your MI Bar result!  -Appealed and Passed the July 2015 Michigan bar exam
