Harvey R. Heller has the added distinction this year of being selected among the 2015 “Detroit Lawyers of the Year” by Best Lawyers in America® .
Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, recognized Heller as the 2015 Detroit Insurance Law “Lawyer of the Year.” The prestigious honor is bestowed upon those in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer, who has earned high ratings in peer review surveys, as well as a high level of respect among their peers, in a particular specialty in each community, is honored with this special recognition.
Heller, who has been continuously included and recognized by Best Lawyers since 2003, has practiced law for more than 30 years. He is also the creator of the firm’s innovative service solution, Result Focused Case Management System®, which delivers cost-efficient, results-oriented legal services, seamlessly. Heller and his group have handled over 1,000 cases involving the unique needs of the insurance industry and its insureds, representing clients’ interests in all state and federal trial and appellate courts, FINRA arbitrations, administrative tribunals, as well as ADR proceedings. In addition to being an active litigator, he is a member of the Michigan State Bar Foundation Fellows and the Michigan Defense Trial Council.
On a national level, Heller is a member of the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Lawyer’s Professional Liability, the Defense Research Institute, the International Association of Defense Counsel, as well as the Claims & Litigation Management Alliance. He has authored numerous articles on the subject of professional liability and has been a frequent speaker at professional liability seminars.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
