Matt Heffner

Practice Focus

Throughout his legal career, Matt has had the good fortune to work in diverse legal environments ranging from a small Topeka insurance defense boutique of five attorneys to a large Kansas City full service law firm with offices throughout the United States.  This diversity has led Matt to develop a broad practice encompassing many different areas of civil trial work.  Representative areas of Matt’s trial practice include: trust and estate; personal injury (plaintiff and defense); patent and trademark infringement; divorce/paternity/child custody; condemnation; partnership disputes; covenants not to compete; real estate disputes; commercial and residential construction; rent and possession and appellate work.
