About Heather

Learn Heather’s areas of practice.

As a former Paramedic and a former defense attorney, I have a unique advantage in reviewing and evaluating your Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation claim. 

 

In my spare time, I coach high school mock trial, and support Ronald McDonald House, Dogfish Dash, and other charities.

 

I have two children, Hayden and Jordyn, and we enjoy spending time at the Delaware beaches.

Heather did a great job helping me with my car accident. She was able to negotiate with the insurance companies and get me a settlement that helped me get out from the financial burden the accident had caused in the first place. I highly recommend calling Heather if you are in the same situation as me.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!
Heather is simply an amazing lawyer!! My accident left me with a brain injury. I knew I needed help. I struggled talking, my eyes were super sensitive to light and noises were a struggle to deal with. On the first day, her words of confidence that she would take care of all the medical bills and that I just needed to focus on healing were words of an angel. She was excellent with literally everything. A good listener, a good communicator, always kept me in the loop. Then with all the legal stuff, well, just amazing how well she took care of me. It was the worst year of my life due to the accident, but Heather was strong in my corner at a time I needed it the most!! I HIGHLY recommend her!!

Confident, Competent, and Dedicated Attorney
Heather Long helped me navigate the legal fallout from my 2015 motor vehicle accident. She provided excellent guidance and had expert insight into the car insurance company, adjuster, and settlement/judgement history. Her medical background really helps her understand and advocate for her clients and their injury claims. Additionally, she was really honest about the entire process and her transparency gave her instant credibility and me instant trust in her abilities. Heather makes you feel like you have a fiercely loyal friend on your side, which is critical when you're dealing with the physiological and psychology ramifications of a car accident. I recommend her with the utmost enthusiasm.

She's a strong Bridge over trouble waters.
Yes, this lady who I have only known for approximately 2 1/2 yrs has proven to me that if you have been injured, physically, mentally or emotionally in anyway she will make the necessary sacrifices that will guarantee you satisfaction in so many ways. What really impressed me about Heather is she made herself available and transparent. She never made me feel uncomfortable due to my race or level of education. The fact that this is my first and only experience working with a Injury Lawyer I can sincerely confess that Heather long has been my bridge over trouble waters. Being a retired law enforcement officer I have come in contact with a few lawyers but I've never met anyone who was as passionate, professional and as special. She's awesome

A model of integrity, truly invested in her clients
There are few people in the world like Heather that are truly willing to get involved in the messy parts of peoples lives. Heather brings a calm and reassuring presence during such uncertainty. She consistently goes above and beyond to ensure that my needs are being met. My injuries and case have been complex, however, Heather is not intimidated by opposing counsel and has demonstrated countless times her ability to defend my complex conditions. Although the journey is not over, I will forever be grateful to the investment Heather has made in helping me get my life back...she has become so much more than my attorney to me.

Heather has been amazing throughout this entire ordeal. When I thought I had no options, I came into contact with Heather and she not only took on my case when others wouldn't, she handled it professionally and was honest and reassuring with me.

Heather Long kept her word. When I thought I was ready to give up, she said she would make them pay or take my case for free. Ms. Long got me into the right therapy and made sure that I was taking care of myself while filing paperwork and taking over my case. My case is still ongoing but let me say Ms. Long is holding my hand each day. I love her and her assistant, they really know how to make you feel like they're there.
