Your Thoughts, Prayers and Support Are Needed

I wanted to update Heller Highwater readers on some recent news involving a former Heller Ehrman San Francisco staff member:

Schelle Simcox was a reference librarian at Heller’s San Francisco office a little over five years ago. Schelle left to become the SF librarian at Paul Hastings and she  gave birth to a son Lukas in 2008.

Schelle has been diagnosed with stomach cancer, and is going through her first round of chemo.

You can send messages of support and follow her treatment at (This is a free site for posting treatment or other news to friends and loved ones.)

Schelle says that the caring of so many people is giving her wonderful support so let’s keep it up!

    Just a correction – Lukas was born in 2008.

    Thanks Stephanie – the 1997 date was in the information I received but I’ve corrected it now.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
