"I wasn't born here but I got here as quick as I could. I love living in Texas, I love being a Texan, and I love representing Texans, but my greatest joy is that I have been married over 35 years to my wife Tammy. Together we have three grown sons who have become outstanding men in their own regard. We are truly blessed."

“Little things make the difference. Everyone is well prepared in the big things, but only the winners perfect the little things.”
“If wanting to win is a fault, as some of my critics seem to insist, then I plead guilty. I like to win. I know no other way. It’s in my blood.”
“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit – you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”
We had been "thrown under the bus" by a large company and needed the help of an experienced, very knowledgeable and trustworthy trial lawyer. Jeff Heck went to trial on our behalf and shut the opposition down. The result was a judgment in our favor! And the process was over in record time. Thank you Jeff!
My minor child was in a very serious car vs. pedestrian wreck with very serious injuries. Jeff handled my son's case in a compassionate, professional way and obtained a great result. I hope I don't need him again but if I do I won't hesitate to call.
My elderly mother was negligently injured in a nursing home. Jeff fought the insurance company and the result was a very favorable and substantial settlement.
Our family has used Jeff on numerous occasions. He is knowledgeable, caring, creative, and tenacious. He didn't stop until he obtained the best possible result in each case. He helped us get through some serious injuries and we appreciate it.
