I spent over a year hiding from the law. I knew I had let a court case go unhandled but I also knew I was innocent to begin with. This was for a possesion of marijuana and shoplifiting charge. But when is anyone actually ever innocent... and who would take up a case like this, I also have a prior record that IS mostly accuarate with previous similar charges. I had to find a lawyer that would not only handle my warrant (I did not want jail time) but that would hopefully have enough compassion to take my case seriously enough to know that I was innocent.
I truly feel like I struck gold with Mr. Heller. I visited with three other attorneys before I went to Mr. Heller only to have him be the first one to tell me I am innocent and for the exact same reasoning I myself, believed I was innocent... I knew something was different with Mr. Heller, and after giving me a very affordable price quote I decided to hire him.
Within two months my warrant had been lifted and my case dismissed for insufficent facts! I am still in shock!! Not because I just got away with anything by any means but that Mr. Heller had the truth prevail, when so many others had assured me I would still feel a hard punishment (two other lawyers if said I would have to find my own witness to take it to trial if I truly felt I was innocent) and Mr. Heller was able to confidently (without ever giving me false hope) clear my name of these charges!! He is also going above and beyond to additionally assist me in getting my license back from this whole mess and has kept me updated in the process!! Mr. Heller is extremely nice, laid back and Intelligent- highly qualified!! This is what you want in a lawyer! I have been around the courts for too long and had one too many crummy lawyers... stick with this guy!

Mr. Heller and his firm represented me during my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. This was a very stressful, and frankly embarrassing, time for me. From my initial consultation to the final hearing, I felt comfortable and never felt judged when talking to him or his staff. He helped put things into perspective for me, which was what I needed. Everyone was a professional. Once I put everything into their hands, I no longer had to deal with anyone but his firm. I also appreciated the fact that I could submit paperwork via email. It helped streamline the process. Everything went like clockwork and I would gladly recommend him and his firm.

What can I say, Jeff is the best and most understanding. I had been misrepresented by a prior attorney and thank god I had one last court date. I knew I needed to seek out another lawyer to handle my case and after one conversation with Jeff I was sold on the simple fact that I want this man representing me. Not to mention his credentials and experience speak for themselves. It's one thing to just hire anyone to handle a case but its another thing to hire someone that will know all the in's and out's on how to handle it and also come up with a solution. I will say that nothing is guaranteed in this life but one thing u can guarantee with Jeff is his efforts. U get what u pay for in life and in law it's no different. Do the smart thing and hire Jeff Heller. Thanks for representing me Jeff! Sincere regards, Matt T.

I hired Mr Heller to represent my grandson when he was charged with a crime as a juvenile. I felt that the authorities were being unfair since he was only 14. He was with friends when somebody heard him say something and the next thing he was being charged with making terroristic threats which was ridiculous. Mr Heller was extremely supportive and developed a strategy that over the next couple of months got the case settled with my grandson vindicated. Mr. Heller was always professional and I was glad that I hired him.

I was arrested for DUI so I needed a lawyer. I called around and was impressed with Mr. Heller's staff in treating me so kindly and how quickly I was able to get an appointment. When I sat down with him he talked to me like he genuinely cared and he did a great job in making me feel that I was not alone. Since I'm a veteran, I liked the fact that he was in the Marine Corps. He handled my case quickly with a result that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him.

I was charged with a dui even though I only had 3 drinks in 5 hours. I make my living driving so I couldnt afford to lose my license. I was referred to Mr. Heller by a friend and hiring him was one of the best decisions I made. When he reviewed the evidence including a videotape, he discovered several mistakes that the arresting officer made. To make a long story short, because of the errors, he negotiated a plea to reckless driving, saving my license. In my opinion, what separates him from other lawyers is his attention to detail and not settling for anything less than the best possible outcome.

We hired Jeff to represent our son in a criminal case involving a theft of which he was innocent. From the beginning he made us feel that we weren't alone. He and his staff thoroughly investigated the facts and kept us informed at every step of the way. The case went to trial and our son was found to be not guilty. His courtroom presence was very reassuring and we are grateful for everything he did. Thank you

I was in trouble and needed a lawyer in a hurry. He made sure that I was seen the same day that I called which allowed me to stop worrying myself to death. I don't know why I waited as long as I did because he made me feel alot better from the beginning and did everything he said he was going to do. This is a lawyer that cares.

Patience is the key" is the best advice Jeff provided to me; we waited, let Jeff represent us and with Jeff's help the solicitor not only DROPPED ALL CHARGES; Jeff was able to get the county solicitor to write a short letter explaining why "ALL CHARGES" were dropped..

After being charged with a very serious crime I needed to find a lawyer to help. Unlike many people, I was completely innocent of what the authorities said I did. A family friend referred Mr. Heller and after we talked I felt that he would fight for me. For almost a year, the prosecution kept offering "deals" to plead guilty but Mr. Heller held his ground, advising me always as to what was in my best interests. Eventually all charges were dismissed against me and I got my life back. In my opinion, Jeff and his staff are second to none in professionalism, communication and first rate legal talent. Every time I called they made you feel like your problem was their problem. I would highly recommend him for solving your problem.

Mr Heller and his firm represented me during a most stressful Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I thought I was sunk. I had a creditcard company suing me and the debt settlement firm I had enrolled with became a miserable failure. Don't waste your time with Debt Settlement Companies, had I spoken with Jeff before enrolling I would have saved thousands of dollars and not suffered the many sleepless nights to come. Mr Heller and his firm handled me with compassion and professionalism. I simply did as he asked and it was done. Almost painless. His confidence is to his credit, and he delivered for me. There was some initial concern as to whether we could get a Chapter 7, but he assured me if not, a Chapter 13 for sure. With his guidance I was allowed the Chapter 7 and my debts were discharged. In my opinion Mr Heller underpromised and overdelivered. Thanks Jeff.

Jeff Heller and his staff were instrumental in helping me to receive Social Security disability. The procedure of filing is long, arduous and confusing but Jeff's office helped in every way and I'm very happy with the results.

I was involved in a situation that threatened my Carreer, relationship and livelyhood. Mr Heller escorted me through the legal process and took very good care of me. office and personell are very professional and i actually delt with and was represented by Mr heller in person; not a farmed out junior attourney as many firms will do which explains why he may be somewhat difficult to contact at times. however topnotch regular guy, speaks plainly honestly and directly and not a arrogant jerk that you would expect from the typical attourney.

I went to see attorney Jeff Heller about a huge amount of debt I had. He was able to put a plan in place that had me only pay one monthly amount that I could aford. He is a straight shooter in every sense of the word. I would definitely use him again, but hopefully not for debt as I want to keep that low.

I received a speeding ticket in Cherokee County last year a few weeks before a very expensive vacation. As a college student, I was very stressed and worried about having to pay fines and an increased rate on my car insurance. Jeff Heller made my ticket virtually go away; an incident that would have cost me hundreds of dollars in fines and points on my license/insurance is nowhere to be seen on my driving record. He saved me the stress and money that dealing with this ticket on my own would have caused! Being a former prosecutor, he knows how they work and how they think. This really gives him an advantage over other attorneys! CALL JEFF HELLER!

My parents used this lawyer to file bankruptcy. They are still getting warning notices and threatening letters from people. They've tried to contact Mr. Heller to find out what they need to do, but NEVER get a response. Sad that he gets paid and they get no response........would NEVER suggest as a lawyer...Also it is very funny that the only reviews that were posted are that of other lawyers and NO customers...let's see if this gets posted!
