Practice areas
  1. Bankruptcy and debt
    You don’t have to lose everything if you're bankrupt. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to stop garnishments, lawsuits, repossessions and even foreclosures just by filing for bankruptcy. Call now at: 301.710.9758.

  2. Estate planning
    Everyone should have a Last Will and Testament to ensure that their property and estate goes to their chosen beneficiaries upon their death. Unfortunately all too many people do not have one, even though the cost is typically quite small.

  3. Chapter 11 bankruptcy
    A Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is for corporations, some individuals and other entities that are not eligible for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy filing. You may be eligible for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy relief and an automatic stay from creditor actions, and more.

  4. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a reorganization plan that can stop foreclosure, repossession, wage and property garnishments, lawsuits, and creditor harassment.

  5. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will discharge almost all debts completely. Nevertheless, you may be able to retain most or all of your assets.

  6. Personal injury
    If you've been injured due to someone else's negligence and through no fault of your own, you'll want to call Attorney Heffner to review your case for a free case evaluation. Stop worrying, let him help you while you heal.

Amazing Bankruptcy Attorney!
I used Mr Heffner back in 2014 for a Bankruptcy case that had a lot of twists and turns... I greatly appreciated his candidness, friendly personality, patience, and most importantly his knowledgebase is amazing! He helped navigate me through it all and I will be forever grateful. I was so impressed with his office. Thank you.
