Thank you, Mark Heffner
I would like to extend my heartfelt "thank you" to Heffner & Associates. As I was stressing to maneuver through the complexities of Estate Planning, my friend suggested I contact Mark Heffner for guidance. From my first phone converation with Mark, I knew I had the right attorney. When my family and I met with Mark, he made us feel comfortable and patiently answered all our questions in terms we could easily understand. He was very knowledgable, professional, kind and was always easily accessible. I am so very grateful to Mark, Bill Jamieson and staff for this positive experience and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Very Professional and Very Friendly
Mark Heffner is a well regarded and experienced estate planning specialist. Heffner & Associates are very professional, very friendly, and you can tell that they take your requests seriously. I will absolutely be using them again in the future. Mark and his friendly staff worked with my wife (age 28) and I (age 32) to prepare our wills, powers of attorney, and a trust for my son (age 1). Heffner & Associates provides top tier service at a reasonable price.

Compassionate - he listened and understood our concerns. Brian
Attorney Heffner assisted my wife and myself in creating a will and power of attorney for us to share with our children. He is polite, professional, knowledgeable and explained the legal documents in a manner that we could understand. We highly recommend Attorney Heffner’s office for adults striving to protect their children and family.

Very helpful
Attorney Heffner was referred to me by the nursing home because I needed help with the Medicade process. Mr. Heffner called me back right away and began advising me on the steps I would need to take prior to applying for Medicade. To speed up the process he gave me his email address so I could forward him the necessary information for him to review. I found Attorney Heffner both knowledgeable and helpful.
