From Our Clients
“I have known Attorney Jeffrey Heyel for the past 25 years, personally and professionally. Jeff is an honest, intelligent, trustworthy and conscientious individual with a great sense of humor. I could always depend on Jeff as a friend. He is an empathetic person and a good listener. Jeff has also represented me legally in recent years. He provided excellent legal advice and helped me draft a Will for Estate planning purposes. Jeff is fortunate to have a legal brain with many positive personality attributes that support him as a lawyer. I highly recommend Jeff Heyel as an Attorney.”
“From 2018 to 2019 I had a serious employment dispute with my former employer. Attorney Heyel intervened on my behalf and negotiated a lengthy settlement involving more than 6 months of intense negotiations. His efforts ultimately resulted in a successful conclusion at a reasonable cost. I recommend him highly to others experiencing similar employment issues.”
