Since graduating from the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law in 2010, Heitner has represented athletes, entertainers, agents, small businesses and large corporations on both transactional issues and commercial litigation matters. Heitner Legal will offer a wide array of services from copyrights and trademarks to contracts, right of publicity disputes, estate planning and more.

Prior to launching his new firm, Heitner served as a Partner at Wolfe Law Miami and will remain Of Counsel there on an as needed basis. Heitner also currently serves as a contributor for Forbes.com where he covers the sports business beat, and as the Owner/Chief Editor of SportsAgentBlog.com. The founding of the well-respected niche publication in the winter of 2006 first allowed Heitner to gain a name for himself in the cluttered sports business landscape. Ever since, Heitner’s work ethic and bold career decisions have continued to shape the South Florida native into one of the most prominent young legal minds in the sports and entertainment industry.
