Best Personal Injury Lawyer in St. Pete!
Dane Heptner was there for me every step of the way with my personal injury case, helping me with every question I had, calling me back with minimal delay and working very hard to cross every t and dot every i. I enjoyed talking to Dane every time we spoke. His kindness and sense of humor were very much appreciated. I had over $58k in medical bills that he reduced to less than $7k. Dane saved the day during negotiation multiple times in several different creative ways. If you need a passionate, caring lawyer with a heart, creative mind and raw talent for knowing exactly what to say at exactly the right time to win your case, Dane Heptner is the lawyer you need fighting for you.

Awesome Lawyer
I had let my personal injury case linger and several attorneys told me it wasn't a very valuable case. Dane Heptner turned it around and got me over $50,000.00! Great job Dane! I recommend Dane Heptner to anyone with a personal injury case.
