After graduating from Meigs High School in Southeastern Ohio, Mr. Heck joined the United States Army. He served as a Combat Engineer in Missouri, South Korea, Texas and with a short deployment to Germany. After ten years in the Army, Mr. Heck ended his military career and began working towards starting Luftman, Heck & Associates. Mr. Heck, along with Benjamin Luftman, started Luftman, Heck & Associates in 2003 with an emphasis on making legal representation affordable to consumers that otherwise would not be able to seek legal representation.
One of the achievements of which Mr. Heck is most proud, is becoming the first B Corporation in the State of Ohio. To become a Certified B Corporation, a company must meet a high level of accountability standards as well as an extensive assessment review. Once the company is certified, the results of the assessment are transparent for the public to view. The process to become a B Corp is a great opportunity to adopt new company values and become even more socially and environmentally aware.
Mr. Heck’s practice is weighted most heavily on consumer law where he represents consumers' rights, which includes claims based on unfair debt collection practices by creditors, claims against companies that violate the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and claims against businesses for unfair or deceptive trade practices. Mr. Heck has been sought out for his knowledge of consumer law. He was interviewed and quoted by SmartMoney.com, a prominent online financial website, regarding his opinions on consumer rights issues.
