Lied about filing paperwork then filed wrong paperwork.changed offices several times!!! Would not return phone calls. Screwed up my settlement which I have the opposing attorneys email! Which also has attorney client privilege info in it... Meaning my settlement was so messed up Jeff said the other attorney messed it up and when I threatened mis conduct... The other attorney was told by Jeff when in fact he was the one who screwed it all up! And Jeff wants the remainder of his fees from me!! Well in fact my stuff was so messed up he should be giving me my money back!!! As a moral issue since he had my stuff so messed up from the beginning! Not only that but I told him I was dealing with an attorney now judge in the court system who is my child's grandmother and I need someone to play the game with them not me!!! He couldn't play!!!
Mr. Heater really helped me a lot with my divorce. He has handled cases for me and my family and friends before and everyone is very happy with him. The divorce was not easy but he was with me every step of the way and really fought for me. Overall a really good attorney. I recommend him 100%.
Jeff did an awesome job on my custody case. He was very understanding and always available. He explained every step of the process. My mom dad and me are very greatful that we have my little boy back where he belongs. Thanks for taking all the crazy late night phone calls and telling me everything is ok :)
HE DOES NOTHING BUT TAKE YOUR MONEY AND NEVER RESPOND TO YOU. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO COMPLETE MY CASE FOR MORE THAN 2 YEARS AND STILL NOTHING....DO NOT GIVE HIM ANY MONEY
I hired this man for several months over which time he did almost nothing and became exceedingly difficult to contact. Eventually, he left me a voicemail saying he couldn't represent me anymore as he had 'worked with'the lawyer representing my child's other parent. This was a clear and blatant lie as I found out later he had simply changed firms and dropped a number of his clients. Only hire this man if u want to pay the maximum amount for a bare minimum of representation!!!
Jeff is an exceptional family law attorney. He handled my divorce in St. Louis County with compassion and ease. The whole process went very smoothly and I was very happy with the child support, child custody and alimony that I received. He also was very flexible on payment with me and didn't bill me for a lot of the work he did. He was also generous enough to take care of a traffic ticket for me for FREE because he knew I couldn't afford to pay it at the time! I've used other lawyers before and Jeff Heater is by far the best attorney in Clayton or anywhere else in St. Louis!
Jeff handled my divorce and a DWI. He got the DWI dismissed and got me everything I wanted in the divorce. He kept me informed and really explained everything so that I understood it. He also gave me his cell # and would also talk to me when I had questions. He was always very patient since I'd never been in trouble before or been divorced.
