Mansfield, Ohio

Jeff Heck, "Mansfield's Injury Lawyer," has extensive legal experience and a strong practice, handling all types of Injury and Wrongful Death cases and Insurance claims of many kinds, as well as Commercial Litigation and Labor & Employment matters for both employers and employees. He is a court-trained Mediator and has also served as an appointed Mediator for the Richland County Court of Common Pleas, as well as a Mediator and Arbitrator selected jointly by other attorneys in numerous other cases and disputes.

Jeff has his roots in North Central Ohio. He grew up in the Mansfield area and graduated from Malabar High School. He is also a graduate of The Ohio State University where he was a 4 year member and a Squad Leader of The Ohio State University Marching Band. He graduated with Honors from The University of Florida College of Law. He has over 26 years of extensive courtroom and other legal experience and is admitted to practice law in the courts of both Ohio and Florida, including federal district and appellate courts.

Jeff began his legal career with a very large law firm in Florida. He then returned to Mansfield in the late 1980's to help people in his hometown and in the region where he grew up. He is a strong believer in the idea of "giving back" to the community. He believes in his community and, in addition to his law practice, has put his time and energy behind many non-profit organizations to try to improve it. In 2001, he was elected to the Lexington Local Schools Board of Education where he has served as the Board's Vice President and is now serving his third elected term in that office. He is the Past Board Chairman and Board Member of Renaissance Performing Arts Association and the Rehabilitation Services of North Central Ohio. He has served as President of the University Club of Mansfield and the University Club Educational Foundation and as a Trustee and Secretary of the Richland County Foundation, among others.

He also believes that giving back to the legal profession is important. His service here has included several terms as the Secretary of the Richland County Bar Association and as the Litigation Chair of its Certified Grievance Committee. He has been elected and re-elected numerous times by his peers and is in his 20th year as a member of the Ohio State Bar Association's Council of Delegates. He has also served on numerous OSBA committees and task forces. He also previously served on the Executive Committee of the Ohio Association of Civil Trial Attorneys. His current professional associations and memberships include the Ohio State and Richland County Bar Associations, the Florida Bar and active membership and support in the Ohio Association for Justice-the only statewide organization of lawyers dedicated to protecting and fighting for the rights of ordinary citizens in the civil justice system.

Jeff and his wife, Donna (CFO of The Heck Law Offices), make their home in the Mansfield area. They have 6 children.
