“Mr. Heller handled a very important case for my company. He saved us significant time, money and the deal. He was recommended by our corporate lawyer, who said he was terrific, and our corporate lawyer was 100% correct. Mr. Heller quickly analyzed the issues, and recommended a business solution to the problem. He then solved the problem. I would only have Mr. Heller handle litigation for our company and any personal litigation I hope I never have. I just recommended Mr. Heller to a very close friend of mine.”

He capably and efficiently assembled an incredible team of lawyers, managed this difficult case with tremendous diligence and expertise, provided excellent guidance and counsel, and brought about results that were far beyond expectations. Robert was effective in dealing with attorney teams from two large national firms which served to enable us to do well – and at a very reasonable cost. We consider him a good friend.”
