Capable, Knowledgeable and TRULY Caring lawyer
I urgently needed some legal advice over the weekend before I sign the Agreement with my employer. Mr. Heiferman got back to me immediately on a Saturday, addressing my initial questions promptly. He is very knowledgeable in employment law and also familiar with employers' practices. He gave me comprehensive answers and good advices. He also asked me probing questions to help me think through my options. I then asked him follow up questions, impressively, he got back to me promptly again the next day (Sunday). With Mr. Heiferman’s just-in-time help over the short weekend, I fully understood my options and became very confident in negotiating and signing the Agreement with my employer! Mr. Heiferman is a rare find: he is a capable and also very caring lawyer who truly cares about you and will fight hard for your best interest! I will recommend him to all my friends!

"I endorse this lawyer with the highest ranking I can give him. I highly recommend Justin Heiferman to handle cases in the following fields of law: employment law, immigration law, and criminal defense. I have known Mr. Heiferman for 15 years now. He has been a practicing attorney in both New York and New Jersey for 10 years since 2005. I am familiar with his work since he was an Assistant D.A. in Nassau County where he worked from 2006-2010 where he handled complex economic fraud crimes. During that time period I was able to observe him in court and to see his work product as well. He is an excellent attorney, knows the law well, and is extremely responsive and courteous to his clients, going the extra mile for them because he truly cares about every case he handles. You will get all the attention you need with him as your attorney. You will also get the best result you can get with him by your side."
