At Heacox Hartman, we believe that a smaller, highly specialized law firm of experienced attorneys is better able to meet the challenges of providing cost-effective legal services of exceptional quality to our clients in the business and insurance community. We do not have the high overhead of larger, general practice law firms, yet we have the sophistication and responsiveness to our clients’ needs that the competitive market of workers’ compensation defense demands.
At Heacox Hartman we are rooted in the past by the collective experience of our lawyers, but our vision is focused on the future and the exciting possibilities it holds for more efficient client services. Each of the shareholders is widely recognized as a seasoned expert in the areas of workers’ compensation. As part of our commitment to unparalleled client service, we are dedicated to anticipating and quickly responding to our clients’ changing needs.

Our attorneys know, as all good trial lawyers do, the value of thorough trial preparation. Our attorneys are regarded by clients, opposing counsel and judges alike, as among the most well-prepared in the business. Our attorneys have superior trial skills and a unique knowledge and insight into the human element of the workers’ compensation bench and bar. Our attorneys are familiar with the predilections, skills and weaknesses of both judges and opposing counsel in workers’ compensation matters. We can thus bring to bear, in the evaluation of a client’s case, a familiarity and understanding of these, often decisive, human variables. We have an experienced and professional support staff of legal secretaries and paralegals trained to thoroughly investigate and prepare our clients’ cases for trial.

The law firm of Heacox, Hartman, Koshmrl, Cosgriff, Johnson, Lane & Feenstra, P.A. was formed on May 1, 1996. The founding shareholders each left highly successful practices with established Twin Cities law firms to embark on the bold task of creating a new law firm of unsurpassed excellence. We do not take our clients’ loyalty for granted.
It was our belief that a smaller, highly specialized firm of experienced workers’ compensation defense attorneys would be better able to meet the challenges of providing cost effective legal services of exceptional quality to clients in the business, public sector and insurance community. With the assistance of experienced professional support staff and the latest computer and communications technology, our goal was, and is, to become Minnesota’s preeminent law firm practicing in the area of workers’ compensation defense.
