Trial Law Services

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

I am Sgt. Larry Moore of the Lower Chichester Township Police Department. About seventeen years ago our police department along with the Upper Chichester Township Police Department decided we needed to give back to the youth of our communities. From that idea the Lower/Upper Chichester Police Scholarship fund was created. We wanted to help our local graduates with the financial burden of furthering their education. We came up with the idea of having them write an essay on a topic we choose, usually something about helping their community or on volunteering in their neighborhood’s. Throughout the year our committee hold some fund raisers but a lot of our money comes from donations to the fund by local businesses. Chris Heavens of Heavens Law Firm has been a friend to this Scholarship Fund for many of these past years. Anytime I have gone to and asked him for a donation to our cause he has been there, never once saying no. He is a fixture in our community and knows the importance of the need for our graduating senior’s to continue with higher education. We are grateful to call Chris our friend and we look forward to our continued relationship with our Scholarship Committee.

Chris is a great lawyer who fights for his client with a vengeance and leaves no stone unturned. I’ve seen him in court over the past 25 years as a court reporter, and I would definitely use him if I needed an attorney. He has a proven track record and much respect in the legal community.

Lynne Homan

My husband and I contacted Chris Heavens because of his reputation for integrity and professionalism, but what we got in the process was a true friend! From the very beginning he was genuinely concerned for our well-being. If you are looking for a caring, compassionate group of people to help you through a very difficult situation, then look no further! I would recommend Chris Heavens to everyone I know.

Amanda Wellman

“Our house exploded and caught on fire. We were injured and lost everything. There were news reports saying that the explosion was caused by a meth lab, and our family was being slandered in the news media. We hired Chris Heavens and he put together a legal team of experts who proved that the explosion and fire were caused by a propane leak. He filed suit and won our case against some very big corporations. I can’t say enough positive things about how well Chris Heavens and his staff treated my family. I highly recommend Chris Heavens and his firm.”

Tacy Patterson

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….
