Couldn't have asked for a better lawyer (and person)!
Brian took over my case from another lawyer who was not a good fit -- and quite honestly he restored my faith in this profession. He's extremely smart, knowledgeable, honorable, savvy, and an extraordinary consensus builder. He has one of the highest degrees of emotional intelligence that I've seen and therefore was better able to read and communicate with the judge, clerks, other lawyers, etc. Brian knew how and when to be tough (yes, he can be a tiger) in order to achieve the desired results for me, his client. He was easy to work with in an otherwise emotionally charged matter -- and I'm proud to say that this man is a true mensch.

A TEN STAR Attorney!
Was extraordinarily lucky to find Mr. Heitner when my first attorney quit on me. He is the kind of lawyer who TEACHES other lawyers about the rules of Estates and Trusts. From the moment I hired him for a litigation case with my siblings, I felt like I was in terrific hands. After a year of wasted time and money with my first lawyer who dragged things out, and who mistook the handling of my case as an Estate matter vs. a Trust, Brian saw the other side didn't have a leg to stand on, and quickly, competently, and most efficiently tied it up in a couple of months. This is the guy you want by your side in a deposition.
