I have known Jim Heiting for about 20 years. He is one of the finest men and lawyers I know. I refer ALL of my personal injury inquiries to him because I trust him to do the best possible job for his clients. I would trust my family in his hands. He is very well respected and liked in our community. I heartily endorse Jim.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Jim Heiting for almost three years now. I am constantly impressed with his professionalism, his zealous representation of clients, and the level of civility he brings to his practice of law. There is no finer personal injury attorney in all of the Inland Empire.
