“What are you looking for in representation?
A firm with a team of talented, experienced and thoughtful people. A firm that is respected by opposing attorneys and judges. A firm whose knowledge comes from experience. A firm that knows the resources, including experts in medicine, life care, economics, & mediation Heimberg Barr produced a great result for me because they are all these things.”
“My sister had been hospitalized for swelling in one of her legs and left the hospital a paraplegic relegated to a board and care home. I interviewed with five different attorneys and was told that really nothing could be done.
“Dr. Heimberg was able to help us recover injuries for my sister and to provide for her a home where she can live without being in an institution.
“If Steve had not really looked at this case and listened to us this woman could have spent the rest of her life in an institution and never had the independence and care that she gets today.”
“Max came into the world a hard way. He was suffering from oxygen deprivation while he was in utero ... so he was born with extensive brain damage ... I didn't want to go through the litigation process, but thank goodness we did. The verdict that we were awarded ... was at the time the largest verdict in California for a case involving a brain damaged baby... and we're going to need every cent of it. Max's care costs about $30,000 a month, and 95 percent of that is not covered by insurance. He requires almost 24/7 nursing care, physical therapy six times a week, all kinds of equipment ... Money can't undo the injuries that have occurred, but it certainly can help the quality of life.”
“The money wasn't part of the equation. It was just a tool to provide her with the best possible treatment ... And Steve's handling of his wife's case definitely affected her in a positive way.
“She confirmed that Steven, besides being a fantastic attorney, was also a good friend and someone who was also taking care of her.”
Dr. Genaro de Paiva
“My brother had a mental illness and ended up in a hospital where he was hurt. Dr. Heimberg looked beyond the mental illness and saw the importance of Bill and his meaning in our life.
“Through Dr. Heimberg's investigation he found out that there was some medical mis-management that actually led to my brother ending up in the hospital. It helped us not only put the puzzle together about what happened to Bill, but also let us hold people accountable who needed to be held accountable.
“I really feel that ... for once ... justice happened.”
“Steve Heimberg is not your stereotypical lawyer. He's not in the business he's in for the money. He's in the business he's in to right wrongs, to protect patients who have had bad experiences with physicians, to protect consumers.
“He's personable; he's just very, very determined. His low-key sort of manner on the one hand is very open and friendly, but it's deceiving because being a doctor he can explain things to juries in a very simple way where they will understand and not get thrown by the medical terminology.”
