About Us
Heard & Medack, P.C. is a litigation firm. Simply put, we try lawsuits. Formed in 1998, the firm's practice involves the vigorous representation of its clients through all aspects of pre-trial discovery and, more importantly, at trial. With over forty-five (45) years of combined courtroom experience, the firm's principals aggressively represent their clients' interests at trial, yet do so cost effectively and without the unnecessary overhead typically found with larger firms.
