Exceptional Legal Representation in Times of Need
I cannot recommend Mr. Heilmann enough! When I was involved in a serious car accident last year, I was overwhelmed with the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that followed. From the very first meeting, he demonstrated genuine empathy and compassion for my situation. He took the time to listen to every detail of the accident and made me feel like my case truly mattered to them. Throughout the entire process, he kept me informed and answered all my questions promptly, easing any anxiety I had about the legal process. What truly stood out was his exceptional expertise and professionalism. He was well-versed in personal injury law and thoroughly investigated my case to gather all the necessary evidence. Not only is his skilled negotiator, but he also has an incredible ability to communicate persuasively. He negotiated with the insurance company and the responsible party's attorneys with confidence and determination, ensuring my rights were protected and my best interests were represented. In addition to his legal prowess, Mr. Heilmann displayed a genuine concern for my well-being throughout the entire process. They consistently checked on my recovery progress and provided valuable resources for rehabilitation and medical support. I am beyond grateful for his support during this challenging time in my life. Thanks to them, I was able to focus on my recovery and rebuild my life after the accident. I highly recommend him.

outstanding attorney
As an attorney who works with many litigation firms for settlement planning, I can attest that Michael practices at the highest levels of legal technical knowledge. But what makes him stand out is that he is not only a zealous advocate for his clients, but genuinely cares that the results of any litigation helps make their lives better.

An Impressive Attorney
Michael Heilman represented me extremely well in obtaining a settlement out of court for an injury. At all times he conducted himself with decorum, caring, and professionalism. He is the type of attorney that one wishes all others were like. His methodology in depositions is a pleasure to watch. I recommend him highly.

Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
Michael Heilmann was recommended to us by Legal Shield. He did a truly outstanding job explaining the legal process to me. He fought hard for a a fair settlement in my case against the government. I received my settlement as stated. He is a very experienced attorney, kind & honest. I highly recommend Michael Heilmann.

Great lawyer!!!
Mr. Heilman took on my case for my brother when the other lawyer didn't want to deal with it. Mike went above and beyond for my family. He's tough in the courtroom and knows how to put up a good fight. My family and I are really happy with the results for Mr. Heilmann's performance. Thank you Mike for everything.

Fantastic Lawyer
Mr. Heilmann took over my case when another attorney was not performing to my satisfaction. He put my faith back into the legal profession as he is a very kind, loyal, honest attorney who goes the extra mile to win your case. I would highly recommend him.

Mr. Heilmann took on our medical malpractice case at the 11th hour and managed to secure a very nice settlement that will go a long way toward paying for ongoing medical care. He and his staff showed a high level of care, professionalism and determination throughout the process. We are so grateful for his expertise and the outcome, and we recommend him highly.

Great Lawyer!
I struggled with injuries related to an out-of-state auto accident for over 18 months until I finally found a surgeon willing to listen to me and my symptoms: diagnosis 2 broken vertebrea and crushed disc amongst other internal injuries. With that diagnosis in-hand, I decided it was time to hire an attorney. Michael was recommended by a local attorney for his expertise in dealing with both Michigan and Florida injury suits. He was very open up-front about the potential journey that may be the result of filing an out-of-state claim and how long it could take. Fortunately, he was able to effectively negotiate with the at-fault party's insurance company armed with the diagnosis and details of the circumstances and was able to settle for the full covered amount in only a few months! He is now working on settlements for my family members also impacted in the same accident. Would highly recommend him!

Unparalleled
Attorney Heilmann really went to bat for me on my personal injury. He always kept me informed and answered my questions. At first the insurance company didn't want to pay anything but we eventually settled for more money than I thought was possible.

Miracle Worker!
Prior to taking my case Mr. Heilmann carefully reviewed the facts of my case. Other lawyers had turned my case down. I received the wrong medication from a mail order pharmacy. He convinced my therapist to submit evidence of the injuries which was crucial, and therapists are very hesitant to get involved. A huge plus was his experience with the same pharmacy from a previous suit. Mr. Heilmann is licensed to practice law in the state I live, as well as the state the mail pharmacy is located. He told me at the outset he never takes a case he doesn't think he can win. He told me what to expect in the deposition I gave and kept me abreast of the status during the three year case. He always returned my calls in a timely fashion and gave me a realistic idea of what I could expect at the conclusion of the case which turned out to be exactly the amount he predicted. In addition to receiving the money he obtained for me, he's also a very nice man and it was a pleasure getting to know him.

Honest and hard working Lawyer
we have known Mr. Heilmann for over 10 years and he is the ONLY attorney we would use. He has represented us in court and what a fabulous job he did. He had everyones attention and all eyes where on him while he pleaded our case and what a way he has in the courtroom. And yes we won our case. He has hanlded another case for us and again we won and he is currently handling a case for our granddaughter. He is knowledgable, caring and goes after the facts and protects his clients. I would hope you never have a injury serious enough to need his service but if you should he is the attornery for you.
