EXPERIENCED ADVOCACY: AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO CRIMINAL DEFENSE FROM A FORMER FELONY PROSECUTOR.

My goal is to restore hope to those crushed under an unforgiving criminal justice system. Over the past 10 years, I've handled thousands of cases from complex felonies to simple criminal speeding tickets. In every case, my goal is to help those charged with crimes restore their hope, dignity, and future. Even if you've already been convicted of a crime, I can help. A portion of my practice is dedicated to helping clients convicted of crimes restore their constitutional rights and set aside convictions so they can have a fresh start.

Excellent & Expeditious
Mark & Paula were quick, effective, and responsive. Paula was friendly and helpful at every step, which is important to someone who has no idea how these things work. I'm really glad I hired them.

A Golden Age Review
It is devastating, when you have reached "Golden Age" status, never been in trouble with the law, to find yourself in a "criminal offense" situation. My luck was an immediate personal referral to a "criminal defense lawyer": this was Mark Heath. He helped me to bring a hopeless situation (my perspective) to the best outcome possible. He and Paula P. are as compassionate as they are competent professionals. They administer the law, which they know so well with passion of the heart. Thank you for all.

The most pleasant and professional experienced!!
I lived in Florida, moved to Scottsdale AZ. In Arizona I unfortunately experienced a DUI. I had moved back to Florida being 13 years between moving from AZ back to Florida. It unfortunately took me going through a few different attorneys trying after 13 years not having my drivers License reinstated do to not finding The Heath Law Firm 480-422-0489. Mark & Paula always answered ever single call I placed as well as emails the same day and displayed the upmost professional and pleasant experience, I felt like I knew them and of course living in Florida we had never had a face to face. You do NOT have to live in Arizona for them to represent you. I’m not blowing smoke nor patronizing them. This an actual testimony. I now have my Florida drivers license and it’s was evident no one else could make this happen. Believe me !!!!! When I tell you. I’m doing you a favor and saving you time to achieve incredible results in minimum time The Heath Law Firm team on your side ..

Compassion and expertise.
After making several mistakes in my early adulthood, my record had always hung as a cloud over my life. Last year (November 2020), I decided that I was going to pursue 4 "set-aside" orders in two jurisdictions to try and reduce the impact of my convictions and to restore my constitutional rights. I did some research and came across the Heath Law Firm website. After reading the information there, I decided to contact them and see what the chances were that I might get the orders granted. Mark and Paula were more helpful and compassionate than I ever thought possible. They helped to alleviate my anxiety about the process and addressed my concerns thoroughly. Covid 19 did slow the process a bit because of the restrictions of the courts and the backlog of cases... But all 4 of my motions were granted without issue. Paula helped me in making sure that DPS correctly updated my record to show the new dispositions and this chapter is now finally behind me. I couldn't be more grateful for Mark and Paula and all the assistance they provided. I highly recommend the Heath Law Firm to anyone who needs legal representation.

Fantastic team and service
I can't say enough about the superior help/servie I've received from this team. The services that I have received so far would have cost who knows how much (A LOT!) and to be honest they so far have not taken a dime from or asked. I have offered to pay and all I get is it's not necessary at this time. This is amazing. These people actually want to help you and not just take your hard earn money right from the jump. If I do end up having to pay for further services the prices I was told I think unbeatable, and I would be glad to pay with no problem. The services has be kind, and very professional. These people actually listen and don't use your lack of knowledge of the legal system against you. God forbid I ever get into any real bad situation where I need a lawyer, but if I do I know where I'm going.

Hiring Mark was the best decision I’ve ever made
It’s hard to find the words to describe how amazing Mark and his team are. Back in 2012, I found myself in trouble during a drug transaction with a friend. I was charged with 5 felonies but ended up going to court to fight 2 of them, and ended up taking a plea deal for 1 (class 6 felony). Fast forward to 2020 and I can now close this chapter for good! Mark and his team worked so professionally and diligently that they were able to get my judgment set aside AND my gun rights back. I have spoken with and been represented by many attorneys over the years, but have never come across a firm like this. If you or anyone you know ever finds themselves in trouble, look no further than Mark and his team. I would trust them with my life. Cheers to new beginnings!

Great attorney and law firm
Mark and Paula were amazing. I retained Mark for support in restoring my civil rights from mistakes made over a decade ago. He not only wrote an amazing application stating current laws and legislations that would support the case, he cited studies and other applicable information that would further justify the favorable ruling. He is experienced and provided the expert services we hope for, but rarely find these days. I highly recommend him.

Knowledgeable and Professional Criminal Defence Lawyer
Mark’s wisdom and knowledge were exactly what we needed as we navigated through the legal system. There is no doubt without Mark’s diligence and representation, our case outcome would not have turned out as positive. Paula is Mark’s right arm, and kindly addressed our questions and guided us thought that administrative complexities of the court system. We are very thankful for both of them and highly recommend The Heath Law Firm!

Genuinely Wish There Was A Six Star Review Option
I was recently charged with a seriously DUI. Terrified and having no idea what to expect, I contacted Mr. Heath for a free consultation. He was highly ranked as an attorney and one specializing in traffic law, and after having worked with him and his team (thank you, Paula!), he has very much earned that accreditation! And I can't begin to thank them enough for all of their help. Knowing that I had the help and support of Mr. Heath and his team, that I could trust that all details were expertly handled, kept me from having complete breakdowns on a number of occasions throughout the legal process. Not only did both Mr. Heath and Paula know what they were doing and were able to keep me honestly informed with expectations and provide advice and support, they were quick to respond whenever I had questions or concerns, and always did so in a friendly, professional, and empathetic manner. I felt part of the team and cared for. It is one thing to find a firm that is knowledgeable and experienced at what they do, but it is another to work with one that is also truly caring and supportive. This also applies to the fee and payment schedule; they were kind in working with me and being flexible in finding a solution that worked best with my income restraints. That was a huge relief, and the results and experience throughout were definitely well worth it! I would very highly recommend The Heath Law Firm if you find yourself in need of expert, compassionate legal service and advice.

Set aside
Many years ago, i made stupid choices that greatly affected my life. With the help of Heath Law Firm, I was able to restore my dignity. Paula was especially instrumental. She took my phone calls. Answered my questions some of them more then once. Walked me through every step. After several months of diligent work, my multiple set a sides were granted. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I feel like i can hold my head high like never before. I am a new!!

EVER GRATEFUL
Mr. Heath and his team of professionals are exactly that. Very professional and concise. They know exactly what they are doing and how to get it done. Having my rights restored is huge and I am ever grateful to The Heath Law Firm. It’s your life, it’s your rights in the balance. If you have found yourself in this situation you need the Heath Law Firm. I have only one regret, that I didn’t call them sooner.

Good job
Mark was very helpful in dealing with a speeding ticket for my son. In a time where I, as a parent, was clueless of the process, he helped us through it. Paula and Mark answered every question and concern honestly and without making me feel as if I was bothering them.

Excellent, professional and courteous
I hired Mark Heath to have my felony conviction set aside from many years ago and could not have asked for a better and more competent team to accomplish this. Mark and Paula did a wonderful job communicating comprehensively, conscientiously and compassionately. Every time I either spoke with or emailed Mark and/or Paula the exchanges were always very informative and congenial. Their response times were always quick. In this day and age it’s not easy for people to get a fresh start and for those of us who know we made a mistake these new beginnings facilitated by Mark and his team are so appreciatively and wholeheartedly received. The burden of my past transgression is now legally laid to rest. I would highly recommend Mark Heath without hesitation.
