Attorney Heffernan was born in New York City, has lived in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Vermont, all before moving to Connecticut to attend law school the University of Bridgeport School of Law, now Quinnipiac University School of Law.  Having come to love the State of Connecticut she chose to establish herself and her practice here.  Attorney Heffernan has been a trial attorney for over twenty years, working tirelessly to obtain justice for her clients, whether they are accused of a crime, injured as a result of negligence, or pursuing the dissolution of a marriage.  Attorney Heffernan practices in our State and Federal Courts, handling a wide range of matters from murder cases to insurance disputes to custody cases. More than comfortable with the idea of going to trial, Attorney Heffernan’s primary goal is to obtain the best result for her client, however that outcome might be achieved through our legal process.
