Ethical, thorough, and caring.
I was Iras client for the better part of two years. To say he cares about his clients is an understatement. He puts his heart and soul into his work and does everything he can to help couples have an amicable split. He conducts himself in a moral and ethical manner that is unseen in many lawyers. If I could give more than five stars I would. Also. His rates are reasonable and fair and won’t break the bank.

Family Dispute
I was first introduced to Ira by another attorney that as a friend. Ira took the time to meet me on a weekend. He was very thorough with his questions and took extensive notes. He read all correspondence I had sent ahead of time. Family issues can be heartbreaking, but Ira showed compassion, yet with an aggressive edge. The case continued unnecessarily due to the opposing side, but Ira got it to the finish line. There were concessions made on both sides, but in my eyes we won. Ira's strong family commitment shows in his approach to sensitive matters. He is well educated and knowledgeable, 110% professional. No one wants to be in a lawsuit, but I'm grateful to have had Ira represent me.

Ira follows the laws but he leads the clients to victory!!
I retained Ira at a very critical point in my life. I needed a divorce, that was for sure but getting away from an abuser was dangerous. From the time we met, up until now, I always trusted him, followed what he told me and he never steered me wrong. He was always one step ahead of my abuser. He eats guys like that for breakfast. We had ups, we had downs with the courts but his projection of the outcome was real and on point he never sugar coated anything which helped prepare me for some of the harder rulings we faced. He never backed down and he kept his eye on the target which was my protection. He's sharp and witty but most importantly he plays by the rules and he plays to win! He's committed and he genuinely cares and he fights till the end. I honestly don't know where I would be without him. I have slowly gotten my life back and having a trusted attorney was the biggest blessing. There is so much more to say but I think I've made my point. I highly recommend Ira.

Ira Heller professional review
Mr. Heller was a real blessing for myself and my family. Divorce was not a particularly pleasant chapter in my life and I had a lot of fears about how it would play out. Ira was there for me from the beginning, laying out clearly what my options were and how things would most likely go. He was thorough, responsive, and most importantly to me validating. I definitely felt like I had someone in my corner during the whole process. He made it clear to me that just because I am getting divorced doesn't mean I need to be a doormat. I was able to make sure I get what I need with the least amount of drama and fighting possible. In short he helped me through a very difficult time and was genuinely concerned about my welfare. I highly recommend him without reservation.

The best attorney
I not only recommend attorney Ira W Heller, but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledge, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. I used his service for custody, he is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else.

NOT like other lawyers but a GREAT one nevertheles!
Wow. How can I possibly say how amazing Ira is?! He truly cares - not just puts on an act - really and truly cares. I was a big hole when Ira took on my case. I had 2 previous lawyers - one was only in it to bill, bill, bill and the other, totally and utterly incompetent. As a result I was so desperate and in a really bad way. Then, I spoke with a friend of mine that I hadn’t been in contact with in a while and he told me about Ira and reccomended him highly. I called Ira. He was so patient and sympathetic on the phone and immediately went to work for me. And he got results. Quickly. He’s not like other lawyers that want a case to drag and drag so that they can bill. He wants to get you positive results and then get your recommendation! I unequivocally and unreservedly recommend Ira to anyone in need of a good attorney!!

Excellent experience with Mr. Heller.
My family hired Ira to help with a very difficult situation following the loss of a dear loved one. Ira assisted us every step of the way, working diligently to ensure a positive outcome. He has been supportive, informative, honest and accessible. Most importantly, he has been very kind in his assistance throughout a tough situation. I would gladly recommend Ira to anyone in need of legal services.

I highly recommend and support him
Ira Heller is setting an excellent example to preserve the benefits of his clients and is always looking for them. His strong insistence in keeping the rights and i personally found and faced it with him when I attended in the hearing session. He was very enthusiastic and diligent in the pleading in his work. The trust and integrity that he built with his clients did not come from nowhere. My confidence in him is endless, It is enough that he did not hesitate to recover the right despite all the temptations that were offered to him by my opponents, but he refused and continued to support me until the end.

Ira got us our i130 alien petition approved, he was very detailed in the argument of our appeal. It was successful and we are extremely happy about this. He was very caring, patient and on top of our paperwork. We not only got an attorney, we also found a friend.

Very Knowledgable and personable
We were privileged to have Mr. Heller work on the citizenship application of my wife. My wife had 2 concerning legal issues which were not in her favor. However from what we felt was a hopeless case, with Mr. Heller's counsel, choice of approach and unique wisdom, My wife is now able to sing ...... "and I am proud to be an American." I highly recommend Mr. Ira Heller as am immigration lawyer and can safely say he was personally concerned about every expect of my case. He gave trusted advice and stuck with me till every option is applied. I will be calling on him for any immigration case I may have in the future. I suggest you do too. you will be choosing a lawyer who will go all the way to give you the best representation.

Be careful
Ira was not too attentive to my case. He was hard to get a hold of and tended to forget things
Response from Ira Heller December 20, 2020
This is Ira W. Heller, Esq., principal attorney of Ira Heller Law, LLC, responding to this fraudulent comment. First, of all, I have absolutely no idea who "al" is, and this is clearly a cowardly hit job from someone who does not even possess the basic courtesy to tell us who he really is. In direct contrast to the comments of this faker, I am extremely attentive to my cases, and very accessible to my clients. In fact, I readily give my cell number to my clients, and they know they can reach me if they need me, particularly in an emergency. I do not know what this person's problem is, but I can assure you that he is a liar, and is NOT one of my clients, as a true client of mine would never post a poisonous comment like this.
