Excellent Personal Injury Attorney in Orlando
Heiko was referred to me by a friend of mine. I was in a car accident and had some injuries. I did not have the time nor was I in the mood to deal with the other person's insurance company or my insurance company. Heiko and his team were a huge help in putting everything together so I could get compensated for all of my injuries and damages to my car. I would definitely recommend him to others for assistance.

Outstanding Lawyer
Heiko does great work! I had him work on a completely BS hit & run case for me a bit back and he did a fantastic job. He is great with communication and excels at getting the job done as fast as possible. His number one goal is to do well by his clients, and this was clear to me the entire time he worked on my case. By the time of our final court date, we were in and out of the courthouse with things going in our favor (criminal charge dropped) in nearly no time at all. Couldn't be more grateful for the amazing job Heiko did on my case. Thanks Heiko!

Brilliant, Understanding and Truly Outstanding.
I have to start by saying that my situation was a bit of a conundrum from the start. I was doing a favor for a woman that I knew from my church by taking her daughter to the nearest retail outlet. Unbeknownst to me the young lady while in the Dept Store Shoplifts. I never enter the building. Doesn't Matter. In the End Police in my Area try to charge me with Robbery, Then DCF visits me about my babies, Etc.etc. I've never been faced or even heard of a situation like this. Heiko Moenckmeier had this Resolved in matter of weeks. He was Prompt. Answered every question I had thoroughly and clearly. He was Patient. "As you could imagine I was a wreck". He Had Everything DROPPED within a matter of days. Truly Amazing. He is and will be My "GO TO" attorney for My family and I for all our future endeavors. I would Strongly recommended him to Anyone who has a pressing situation as he handled mine extremely well. I was thankful to have him in my corner. Sincerely, T.Smith

very professional and great lawyer
I've delt with a few other attorneys and Heiko is by far the greatest. He makes you feel very comfortable and you definitely feel like you're in great hands and have nothing to worry about. He does everything I need of him and does it in a timely manner. He is not high priced and willing to negotiate with you to help YOU. He really is there to help you and make things easier on you. No complaints here!

Awesome lawyer!
I was looking for a lawyer and two different people who don't even know each other recommended Heiko to me. He helped me out a lot before I even hired him. He defiantly knows his stuff and cares about your well being. He recommends what's best and won't try to take all your money like Some lawyers. Once I hired him he got me From a bad Felony to a simple misdemeanor quick. He did the best he could and got me the outcome I was looking for and a quick amount of time. He will keep you up to date with your case and quickly Text, call, or email you back. I would defiantly recommend his services!

I met Heiko via referral from another attorney. I was impressed immediately with his prompt follow up to my initial phone call. He spent a great deal of time with me during this call gathering as many facts as necessary. He then emailed a questionaire to fill out that completed the process. He was able to keep me from having to go to court in just a matter of days. A very impressive performance! During the entire process he called and emailed me on a regular basis so I was never left in the dark. I would highly recommend Heiko to anyone needing a great attorney that gets the job done, at the price quoted and in a very short timeline. In addition to his professional demeanor, Heiko is a very warm and caring person. He filled me with hope during our first phone call and alleviated all my anxieties. I could not have been more pleased with his care, concern and results. Should I ever need an attorney in the future Heiko is on my speed dial!

Heiko helped me clear an old VOP/DUI
Heiko helped me clear an old VOP/DUI charge I was unware of until recently. Many years ago I recieved a DUI charge in FL when I was young and foolish. I thought I had cleared all the charges back then. When passing through customs I was alerted I "had issues" in FL. I am in the process of moving to FL and thus found out I had a warrant and was even scared to drive in the state. Luckily, I searched the Internet and found Heiko. At the time I had no idea who he was. He researched the charge and got back to me immediatly with results and plan of action. He took the lead on all of the court arrangements and documents and told me exactly what to do and where to be. He was extremely professional and friendly through the whole process. We actually got the charges dropped much quicker and easier than expected. While at the court house I could see and feel the respect he has from his peers. Hopefully I will not need an attorney again soon, but when I do I would call Heiko and recommend him to others.
