About Steven

Learn Steven’s areas of practice.

If you have been injured by the fault of another then I know what you're going through because I've been on both sides of the desk – as a lawyer and as a client. In May of 1974 at the intersection of US 41 and Cortez Road in Bradenton, a car ran a red light and hit me broadside. Unfortunately, I was riding a motorcycle. I lost the big toe on my right foot, and my ankle was fused. I endured over a dozen surgeries and was in a cast for over a year. I know something about pain and suffering. I felt the insurance company was less than fair with me, and I have made it my life's mission to protect others from the unfair tactics used by insurance companies.

Thank you, Steve Heintz
I was in an accident, I was hurting, I wanted help and Steve understood the unique situation I brought to him. The case became more unusual and I will always be impressed with Steve's attentive to me and the details of the case. He was a master at working the case for the best possible outcome. I will always be thankful to Steve.

An attorney you can turn to for knoledge and guidance
We hire attorneys because we are in a position of not knowing how to proceed. Steven Heintz was able to guide me through my case and provide knowledge and direction to me. I highly recommend him if you are in need of an accident attorney. You need someone who is on your side, he and his team are there for you.

Outstanding
Outstanding Attorney!!! Injured in an accident himself, he understands the issues and doesn't put up with the insurance company's crap! He is a regular guy the jury related to and liked - He carefully built his case and crushed the other attorney. I highly recommend Steve Heintz!!!!

The best lawyer to have on your side!
When I found myself needing an attorney, I starting asking for recommendations. Time and again I heard the name Steve Heintz. He is so highly regarded amongst peers and former clients that I felt very secure hiring him to handle my case. Well versed in case law concerning my injury, highly intelligent and meticulous, I immediately knew I could trust him, and because he is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, I was confident he would be the best to represent me. He did not disappoint! Not only did I feel as though I was fairly compensated, but my verdict exceeded my expectations. Through his knowledge, experience and perseverance, I received justice and I could not be happier with the outcome. I would recommend Mr Heintz if you ever find yourself in need of an injury attorney. He's definitely the man to have on your side!

The Best!!
Mr. Heintz's knowledge of the justice system and the insurance companies is outstanding. My case was not an easy one and the settlement was much more than I had ever imagined. His staff are also very knowledgeable, professional and patient. If you've been in an accident, you need Steven Heintz. Period!

Lucky to have found a Great Lawyer to handle my case.
I didn't feel I needed an attorney untill the insurance company had passed me onto four different adjusters. When I was passed on to the fifth adjuster I called Steve Heintz. He reviewed my information and helped me on my way to insure I recieved all the information I needed for my health issues. His paralegal, Teresa Anderson, was very helpful when I had any questions. Eric Bruce, associate attorney, was handling my case. I was kept informed of all aspects of my case. Everyone at the office was very helpful with any question I asked of them. They were always respectful by putting all legal terms and procedures in plain english so I would have a better understanding of the process. They made you feel as if you are their only client even though I know they had more then just me. I would, and have, recomend this office to anyone I know if they have a need for a great attorney.
