About Heather

Learn Heather’s areas of practice.

I began my legal journey at DePaul University College of Law, where I served as the President of OUTlaws (LGBT Rights Organization), Articles Editor for the DePaul Rule of Law Journal, a staff member of the Journal for Social Justice, an intern for the DePaul International Human Rights Law Institute, and a law clerk at the Council on American Islamic Relations-Chicago.  My motivation for becoming a lawyer was to help people in need, but I quickly discovered an equal passion for contract law.  In my final summer of study, I was fortunate to secure a summer associate position and later full-time position with a small practice in Philadelphia, where I primarily handled life insurance contracts.  I am now grateful to own a life & property insurance law firm that is recognized for its work in collecting delayed and denied life insurance claims, homeowners and renters insurance claims, and other property claims, allowing me to combine my strengths and desire to assist individuals and families on consumer protection matters.

Above and Beyond!
My children’s father had a life insurance policy through Securion (rip off artists, avoid at all costs). He had cancer and was dying, but kept up his payments. It wasn’t much, but he wanted to leave the kids something. His last payment was returned to him as having been sent to the wrong address though it was sent in the pre-addressed envelope the company provided. When he passed away, the company denied the claim because he’d missed payments. I called Ms. Lee. I didn’t have a lot of hope because it was a very small policy and I didn’t think any attorney would work that case for so little compensation. But it was his dying wish, he’d made his payments faithfully until the company began returning them and even if the money was eaten up in court fees I didn’t want those scam artists to keep it. Ms. Lee took the case, fought for nine months and eventually won. She was paid a little over $3,000 for that time. That comes out to less than minimum wage. She took our case out of kindness and a desire not to allow these rinky dink companies to take advantage of a terminally ill man. She was always available to us, answered all our questions and treated us with compassion and sensitivity throughout. I cannot recommend this lawyer highly enough.

Excellent Lawyer - Highly Recommend!
When I contacted Ms. Lee about my homeowners insurance claim (it was a theft case), I already had another attorney working on it for almost 2 years. The other attorney finally gave up so I hired Ms. Lee, and she had my claim paid after 6 weeks. Thank you for your hard work!

Top Attorney. Results beyond my expectations.
I hired this attorney to help me with an insurance claim that was going nowhere. She took over and I got results beyond my expectations. It it weren't for her expertise and superior knowledge of the law I would have not succeeded with my claim. I highly recommend this attorney. She was also very responsive whenever I needed to discuss my case.

Ms.Lee, was kind enough to answer a few of my legal questions, and you could tell that she was not only a very intelligent lawyer, but I could tell she genuinely cared about my Legal Issue. Give her a chance you won't be disappointed.
