Review Joel Heiligman

  • Excellent Lawyer - DWI

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Sara

    I highly recommend Joel Heiligman to anyone facing a DWI charge, regardless of severity. Joel's experience is unequaled by peers, and despite an upward battle to reduce charges on a second DWI charge in 1 year, he successfully coached me through the steps I needed to take to get my life back on track, prove to the judge and prosecution I would not re-offend, and allow me to keep my career and family intact.

    Joel represented me in both Hennepin County and Anoka County, and it was evident he knew the judges and prosecutors well, which is instrumental in bargaining a deal. He represented my efforts to recover and acceptance of responsibility to the prosecution and we achieved an outstanding result.

    Joel's fees are fair and I will always keep his number on hand in case I experience any sort of legal trouble in the future (hopefully never!). Do not worry if your case is continued more than once, it is all part of the strategy to allow you to re-establish your life and avoid jailtime that could negatively impact your life for years.

    Highly recommended, with no hesitancy!

  • DUI case best outcome

    I was recently arrested for DUI. Joel answered my phone call in the middle of the night from the police station and gave me legal advice over the phone. I then hired him to represent me in my DUI case. We had my court date recently and he was able to get the DUI charge reduced to a misdemeanor speeding ticket. I couldn't believe it. He kept me from having a DUI conviction on my criminal record which was crucial for me and my career. Joel is the best.

    I felt Joel really listened to my needs and worked hard to find the best possible outcome for me. He was current in pending litigation affecting my case and stuck with it as other cases played out for over two years. Despite the unusual length of my case, he never asked for more than his original fees (which were very reasonable). I am very satisfied with the result of my case and highly recommend Joel.

    Joel was able to help me get my charges reduced to an outcome that we were both very happy with. He talks fast and apparently it worked. Very happy with the results!

    Joel helped us with our sons problems related to drugs and was very caring. Did a great job representing him and getting him the best deal and keeping him out of jail.
    Would highly recommend him.

    Joel was the best DWI attorney I could’ve asked for. He was able to knock my charges down to a misdemeanor and I served no jail time and only lost my driving privileges for 30 days. I had heard from several others who received worse charges for less than my situation. I plan to never get a DWI again, but I will recommend Joel to any one who makes the same mistake and gets a DWI charge. He is always there for you when you have a question or concern. I am very grateful for all the help he gave me.

    Joel handled my DWI case and in several ways went beyond the usual services. He managed to reduce my charge to a misdemeanor, answered our questions on the impact on licenses, and also encouraged me to get treatment for my addiction, which has changed my life for the better.

    I had a great experience hiring Joel. He got the job done at a minimal charge without charging a bunch of court fees. His representation got me a great deal and I would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar bind. He was very supportive and went out of his way to meet with me on weekends and to represent me in a county an hour away from his office. I got super lucky to have picked him randomly out of a phone book as my second try because the first lawyer I called did not answer. I am so blessed to have him on my side. His intentions were only for me and I would hire him again if needed, but hopefully not. Thank you so much Joel!!

    Upon meeting and shaking Mr. Heiligman's hand I knew I had found the attorney I could trust and feel comfortable with in my situation. Although Mr. Heiligman no longer deals in divorce cases, I would recommend Mr. Heiligman in the areas of law he does practice in at this time. I felt he was trustworthy and his guidance was exactly on point for my needs. With his help, as an attorney I was able to make a fresh start and I hit ground running making a great life for myself.
