About me

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.

  • Eric J Dinnocenzo

    I strongly recommend Heather Lee - in fact, I refer insurance cases to her that are outside of my jurisdiction. She is extremely conscientious and bright, very responsive, has a wonderful manner, and I have been very impressed with how much she cares for her clients. Anyone seeking a lawyer would be very fortunate to have Heather on their side!
