Residents of Charleston, West Virginia and the surrounding areas have unique legal needs, particularly when it comes to personal injury. Heavens Law Firm founder Chris Heavens is dedicated to meeting those needs and adding a personal touch that makes his firm and services stand out from those of other personal injury attorneys in the area.

Charleston is the capital of the state and its residents are often employed in government work or by one of the major industries of the area: healthcare, chemical, coal mining and shale and natural gas drilling. This means that many Charleston residents may need assistance with work-related injury claims and/or employment termination issues.

Of course, car accidents, slip and fall accidents and other types of personal injury are also common. Chris Heavens has litigated in all of these areas of law throughout the state, including the coalfield region down south, the mountain region on the Virginia border, the northern panhandle and the eastern panhandle. While Heavens Law Firm is based in Charleston, Chris Heavens knows the local and federal courthouses and has legal connections in virtually every county in the state

Upper Chichester, Pennsylvania is a city located between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware. As part of the I-95 corridor, Upper Chichester is relatively populous, although the city itself boasts a “home town” feel. Upper Chichester is located next to Marcus Hook, the location of several large oil refineries. Heavens Law Firm serves a wide array of clientele, from blue- collar workers in Marcus Hook and the surrounding industrial areas to professionals in Garnet Valley, Glen Mills and the expanding suburbs of Chester County.

The people of Upper Chichester and surrounding areas can seek legal counsel from large firms in Philadelphia, but often choose the services of Heavens Law Firm because of a referral or a personal connection to Chris Heavens.

People who desire a personal one-on-one relationship with a local attorney may choose Heavens Law Firm over a big city law firm. We are comfortable in our skin and cultivate our niche as a small town law firm that can successfully litigate cases against any opponent. But don’t take our word for it; look at our results.

Chris Heavens was raised in Upper Chichester. The Heavens family has strong ties to the local community and is very active in local community activities such as youth sports and charities. We know the people of our local community and that knowledge helps us relate to our clients and to judges and juries.

Client Reviews

Right from the beginning Chris was straightforward with me.  He said that he would look into my case, and see what he could do for me.  My first impression that I got from Chris was not that of what I expected from any other lawyers, which I knew from here in Moorefield.  He was a down to earth guy that I enjoyed talking to.  He was not straight to business; he wanted to get to know my family and myself.  Then as time passed and I got to know Chris even more, my first impression of Chris was right, he became my friend and not just my lawyer.  He would always ask about how everything was going in my family, and not just talk business and push me aside.  I know Chris changed my life as my lawyer in helping with my case, but what I really cherish the most is I made a friend for life, and to me a friend that you can count on to always be there is a precious commodity in today’s world and that is what I have with Chris…

David L. Smith

My family and myself were very pleased with Mr. Chris Heavens as our lawyer.  I don’t believe I could have found a better lawyer to represent us.  He was very supportive in every aspect of the case.  I could always count on him to be there if I did not understand something.  My opinion, I believe Mr. Chris Heavens is a damn good lawyer….

Mona L. Whitt

Approximately three years ago, Chris settled a case involving our son, who is physically disabled.  Chris always performed his legal duties in a professional and understanding manner.  Not only was Chris concerned with our legal situation, but also that of our personal well-being.  Even after our case was resolved, and his obligations met, Chris continued to maintain contact with our family.  He even went so far as to send our son a gift of a handicap assessable ATV.  We were completely satisfied with the services he provided for our family.

We have continued to contact Chris for advice with various legal issues, which have arisen since the time of our original case.  He has earned our faith and trust, and we accept the legal advice he provides.  Our experiences with Chris have helped to renew our faith in the legal system….

Leon and Trudy Sponaugle

Mr. Heavens served as my attorney in a civil suit that was brought against me in 1994.  The suit was finally settled after five years or so, and during that time I had regular contact with Mr. Heavens.  I must say that Mr. Heavens is an exceptional attorney who represents his clients with passion and integrity.  He is an advocate who seeks the best interests of his clients, and above all, who seeks the truth…

Opal Gail Nelson

I feel that he is a great attorney.   I was a young mother with a child of just one year of age and had a lawsuit against a very powerful family in my hometown.  Chris Heavens made me feel confident about my case, and I feel like he was confident and well prepared for my case…
