Heiple Law Offices practices from the distinctly Christian perspective, turning to Biblical principles and core values wherever possible, both in counseling our clients and in operating the firm.
Legal matters can be costly and unbelievably stressful for everyone involved. We work to make a strategically positive difference. We purposefully reach out for amicable resolutions wherever possible, bringing a refreshing change to the unfortunately all-too-contentious legal culture of the 21st Century. In the language of Matthew 5:13-16, we are intentionally seeking to be salt and light, desiring to bring a difference to the currents, crosswinds, and influences of the world around us.
As a result, we often present creative options that some lawyers wouldn’t even consider. We encourage our clients to explore mediation for conflict resolution instead of becoming bogged down in prolonged litigation. Our focus is on creating the best outcome for our clients, not the option that will run up the biggest bill.
Heiple Law Offices pursues a statewide practice for our appellate and workers’ compensation clientele, and the other aspects of our practice are primarily concentrated in the counties that are part of the 9th, 10th, and 11th Judicial Circuits in Central Illinois.
