As a former assistant public defender in Central Florida, I have extensive experience in criminal defense litigation, and that has been my primary focus for my entire career. As a private attorney, I have extensive experience in DUIs, criminal defense, domestic violence injunctions, divorce, child support and family law.
My duty is to get my clients the best result possible and my goal is to steamroll the legal roadbumps so my clients can return to a normal life. I'm mindful that the trust placed by a client in me is phenomenally valuable, and I try and reward that trust by doing everything I can to accomplish the best result for my people. My motto is 'Defending You Like Family!' I aim to be available and accessible at all times to my people and get them the information they need to feel better about their particular legal situation.
I love doing my job and handle criminal defense and family law. I defend DUIs, driving while license suspended, and help people get their driver’s license back. I fight drug crimes and violent crimes such as domestic violence and aggravated battery. I have handled several thousand criminal cases solely as a defense attorney, and have enjoyed every minute of it.
I also enjoy Family Law cases and have litigated numerous Contested Divorces, Paternity and Timesharing cases, Child Supports, Injunctions, and Emergency Pick Up Orders, etc.

I opened the Law Firm of Heiko G. Moenckmeier, LLC in order to provide more personal interaction when defending my clients from State prosecution. "A man would rather know he will hang in the morning then have no idea what his fate will be." - Unknown.
I believe the Client should and must be kept in the loop, and know what is going on with their case. I don’t believe in lying to anyone in order to get their business, nor do I need to lie to get someone to retain me. I will be honest with my assessments of each person’s case, and I will not take every case. I believe every single case has a lot to fight, and you should consult with me in regards to your case.
I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors in Economics in 2003 and graduated from the University of Miami School of Law with my J.D. in 2007.
I have experience in a wide array of criminal and traffic charges- from Driving while License Suspended and Driving Under the Influence to Kidnapping, Home Invasion Robbery, Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon and almost everything in between.
Having defended thousands of clients in their cases, I have this advice when trying to choose between lawyers- a private attorney needs a relationship with their clients and their families, so that everyone is on board with the gravity of the situation. The majority of my practice is word of mouth. I feel that the most important thing is to have an absolute relationship with my clients and that they be able to access me directly, not secretaries or paralegals. I strive to return calls and emails within 24 hours, and I will fight for you.
I have represented The Accused in the Central Florida area (Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties) and have defended my clients in Brevard County, Volusia County, Lake County, Hillsborough County, Polk County, Pinellas County, Broward County, West Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County and Leon County.
