Landlord client of Attorney Heller's
I have worked with Michael Heller since 2012. I have never been displeased with his representation. He has assisted me with approximately 15 cases a year therefore I believe I am one of the best clients of his, to comment on his service. I have found Michael dedicated, professional, wise, and dependable. I will not employ any other attorney for my legal needs.

A lawyer with conviction who understands technology
Michael has done many landlord cases for me and his quality has been paramount. His biggest work for me has been in breach of contract claims, and these claims have boiled down to evidence in the form of emails and text messages. Michaels understanding of, emphasis on, and utilization of electronic communication stands out compared to other attorneys because of its gravity as evidence: lawyers who grew up with only paper seem to take electronic communications lightly when, in modern America, electronic communications are everything. Cases are won or lost based on eveidence and when your case centers strongly on electronic communications it is necessary to have a lawyer on your side who knows how to facilitate all of your evidence. Furthermore, conviction is tantamount to success because you cannot have one without the other. When it come to delivering your point and making your case to the judge, it’s the energy within that creates your result. Michael harnesses the energy with each case with conviction. And that is why Michael is a winner.

He charged me almost $1000 to tell me that the other party had a strong case. He never once met with me and conversations on the phone were limited on his time. I provided him with strong witnesses for the case and they were never utilized. I ended up receiving a judgment against me for the full amount I was being sued for. I would have saved $ taking it to court without his assistance! Lesson learned.

Response from Michael Heller May 2, 2018
I provide each client with an analysis of his or her case, including its strengths and weaknesses. Part of this analysis focuses on the strength of the other party’s case, including that party's arguments, witnesses, evidence and other factors relative to those of my client. Additionally, I require that each client actively communicate with me, and I include a clause in my retainer agreement stating my expectations regarding active communication because it is the client who is the ultimate decision maker regarding litigation, including whether to settle a dispute. In this instance, the case was set for trial, but the parties reached a settlement. The client, however, failed to sign and return the required settlement documents despite phone calls and emails over the course of days. Without signed settlement documents, the trial proceeded, but the client did not appear for the trial. Ultimately, because the client failed to communicate, failed to sign settlement paperwork, and failed to appear for the court trial, judgment was entered against the client.
