Given the current situation, our firm is currently modifying its practice to comply with the state’s emergency orders and guidelines in regard to social distancing. Although we are open full-time, we are seeing clients in person on a very limited basis. Almost all attorney-client contact will be through telephone or video conferencing. Most of the courts themselves are closed with the exception of emergency cases, though they will hear some matters by videoconference. They are still accepting filings however, so there is no need to wait to begin your case. Given that it often takes months to get your first court date, this is a good time to commence your case so as to avoid the backlog once the courts re-open.

Kevin is a real life hero.

If one can describe Attorney Kevin Heffernan in one word, which is hard, it would be the word, HERO. Kevin is a real life hero. He is a no-nonsense, intelligent, dedicated, diligent, and a hardworking attorney. Attorney Heffernans’ prices are fair and he really goes above and beyond for his clients. He does not discriminate on any level and makes you feel respected always. His staff is wonderful and his main secretary is an angel on Earth.

Our cases were hard cases and Kevin never flinched taking them. Please do not buy into the tv advertisements and gimmicks of the “Big Guys” on television who are mostly too busy to really check in and stay consistent with you and your case. It’s the unknowns and less advertised attorneys like Kevin who have amazing results and decades of experience that you want on your side. Without hesitation we will continue to choose Attorney Heffernan as our counsel in the future and have recommended him to family and friends.

If you want excellent counsel and to feel like you’re not just another case, make Attorney Kevin Heffernan your choice. You will not regret it.

I was so confident that I was in a good hands.

After receiving a letter from the court about my custody case, my dilemma turned more serious, as it was my first time going through such things. I had a few appointments with other attorneys but unfortunately most of them were frustrating. As time got close to the court date, I came across the “ Law Office of Kevin Heffernan” in my neighborhood. I hired him and I don’t regret it. He was such an invaluable and professional Attorney. He listened to me and made sure we both understood the situation so that he could better represent me in court. Even though it was only few days before the court date when I retained him, I was so confident that I was in a good hands.

I am thankful for Kevin’s great efforts, as the outcome was outstanding. I am currently enjoying my parenting time with my daughter stress free.

A caring and professional lawyer!!

From the moment I hired Kevin, he helped me with all the details of getting divorced from my husband. He was professional and calm with everything. He offered good advice, and I appreciated the fact that the time frame for my divorce was not too long.
