Chris Heavens started his legal career in 1991 working for a litigation law firm that primarily defended corporations and insurance companies. Chris quickly developed a reputation as a skilled and aggressive litigator, racking up defense verdicts in favor of the firm’s wealthy and powerful clients. While these courtroom victories increased the law firm’s profits through increased business, Chris was sometimes left with an empty feeling in having defeated working class people with whom he could personally identify. It was at this early stage in Chris’ career that he began to reexamine what he wanted his own legacy to be at the end of his career. When offered a lucrative partnership with his law firm after four years of practice, Chris declined the offer and started his own law firm representing plaintiffs. The personal satisfaction and worthwhile feeling Chris has derived from that decision cannot be measured.

Heavens Law Firm was a beacon of hope to my family and I. At a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of justice for our mother seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was Chris able to defend us from additional suffering, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to me. My children, sisters, grandmother and I are eternally grateful for his service. His staff Cindy and Wendy were also helpful, understanding and compassionate. I will never be able to repay them for the prompt, professional, and knowledgeable service they provided me. I whole heartedly recommend Mr. Heavens and his amazing staff without any reservation!
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.
I wanted to write to thank you for representing me during my court proceedings. Your encouragement and support were immeasurable, even when I wanted to give up on the case. I am blown away by the integrity and all the hard work everyone in your office and yourself put forth on my behalf. Your kindness and professionalism was my guiding light during this dark and trying time in my life. I will forever be thankful for your help, determination, courage, analytical skills, and most of all your hard work. I appreciate that you didn’t give up on me or my case and that you arranged mediation to resolve the matter quickly out of court.
I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone in need of a wonderful lawyer(s) and friendly staff
Thank you again,
I am impressed with what you and your staff were able to accomplish in 4 months (my initial paperwork is dated January 7), and I appreciate the fact that you did so expediently and with little drama. Chris, you laid out the initial scenario for me and what happened mostly unfolded exactly as you scripted it. Clearly, you know your business. I’m glad that our paths crossed, and grateful for your efforts on my behalf. I wish you the best and I again thank you for your work representing me.
My sense of hope was taken from me two years ago, when my father died as detainee in a federal prison. Our family retained Heavens Law Firm because we could not get a straight answer about how and why my father died. Chris Heavens got answers and results for us. He embodies the definition of excellence. I saw a focus and attention to detail that explains why Chris is so highly rated. He and his team explained things to me every step of the way. Chris’ co-counsel, Jim McQueen, added deep experience and collaboration. His associate, Aaron Kidd, was knowledgeable and helpful throughout this whole process. A sense of purpose was re-instilled in me through this journey; it gave me a reason to get up in the morning. After the case was over, I received mail from St Jude’s Hospital that Heavens Law Firm had made a donation in my father’s name and it made me cry because my father spent his life as a physician trying to help people. I am still devastated by the loss of my father, but I have channeled my grief into advocacy for preventing what happened to my father from happening to others. In helping us, Heavens Law Firm brought attention to a gross injustice and inspired us. They restored our faith in the justice system.
