Preeminent Attorneys

Leading, preeminent attorneys

We are well respected by lawyers and judges alike.
Martindale Hubbell’s independent peer review procedure
ranked Mr. Heffner in its highest category for legal acumen and ethical standards.
National and regional bar associations have chosen us to lead as chairs
or officers of practice committees, and the media seeks and publishes
our opinions regarding class-action litigation and legal trends.

Multi-million and billion dollar trials

Recovering millions and protecting
priceless civil rights

Heffner Hurst is known for ardent advocacy whatever the stakes.
We won’t take case unless we believe in it and our clients,
and we can and will fight a case all the way to a final judgment and beyond.
Indeed, we have time and again shown we will try a case
rather than accept a bad result and take (and win) appeals
on issues others thought too risky.

"The quality of the work of Plaintiffs' Counsel, as witnessed by this Court during the past three years of litigation, was exemplary...

much less the significant recovery produced in this combined litigation."
