Austin Personal Injury Lawyer

Respect. Integrity. Excellence. Personal Service.

Mark Hefter is an accomplished and respected trial attorney who has been practicing law in Texas for 30 years. He has exclusively represented those seeking legal help and compensation for personal injuries, wrongful death, deceptive trade practices, financial losses, and other damages for more than 25 years.

Mark Hefter is board certified in three legal fields: personal injury law and consumer and commercial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocates. He is also AV®-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system**. If you have questions or if you would like additional information on the advantages of hiring a Board Certified Attorney, please see the article in our Frequently Asked Questions section on why you should hire a board-certified attorney.

Before founding his law practice, Mr. Hefter began his legal career as a successful attorney for a prestigious Austin defense firm, handling a variety of personal injury, commercial litigation, and products liability claims. Later, he joined an Austin firm that exclusively represented plaintiffs. He fought for and successfully obtained justice for clients in numerous cases, including medical malpractice, nursing home cases, commercial trucking, natural gas explosions, electrocution and electrical fires, and many other wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases. Mr. Hefter is proud to be a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum whose membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members in this prestigious organization.

That success inspired his passion for helping others, and Mr. Hefter chose to open the Law Office of Mark Hefter, P.C., in 2007. He is equally dedicated to giving clients both the benefit of his experience and his personal attention and service. Mr. Hefter is married to Mindy Hefter, and they are the proud parents of fraternal twins — a son and a daughter.

Our Practice: Service with Compassion

Our clients are individuals who need help with personal injury cases that are often the result of traumatic or upsetting situations, such as vehicle accidents (car, truck, boating, motorcycle and bicycle), premises liability injuries, fires, explosions, wrongful death situations, civil rights cases, drunk driver liability, and professional and medical malpractice.  Their lives have been shattered, and they are looking for answers.

Mark Hefter also serves the construction industry as a skilled litigator for breach of contract, defect and design, and construction accident cases, as well as commercial and business clients as a resource to fight fraud, deceptive trade practice, and real estate/property dispute cases. Prior to attending law school, Mr. Hefter worked as an architect. He is a registered architect in the State of Texas and thus he brings a unique skill set to construction litigation.
