Karl Heideck is an experienced attorney who services the greater Philadelphia area. He is an effective civil litigator who is tenacious when it comes to winning cases. Being a litigation attorney can be like being a detective; in many cases, a great amount of research must be done to present a strong case. Documents such as medical records, interviews or photographic evidence are examples of what litigation attorneys look for. When the case is ready to be presented, the litigation attorney contacts the other party’s legal counsel to try reach a settlement. Ideally, a settlement is reached and the case never sees the court room.
Going to court is another matter and takes extensive time and paperwork. Litigators files pleadings and motions, the summons to appear in court is ordered and each side prepares for the court room. The discovery process is the next important step before court. Discovery involves each side showing their hand – in other words, the lawyers see what kind of evidence the other side has. Preparation for court begins, and it’s this time that a settlement may be reached. If no settlement is on the table, the lawyers dig in to further solidify their work to present a winning case. Even after a verdict is reached, there is still a possibility of it being overturned by an appeal. A litigation attorney may not be done with a case for months, sometimes years.
Karl Heideck is no stranger to hard work. He is a graduate of Swarthmore College and received his law degree from the James E. Beasley School of Law at Temple University, where he was on the Dean’s List. Upon completing his law degree, Karl Heideck landed an associate position with Conrad O’Brien primarily working in corporate and commercial litigation. He handled sensitive information pertaining to government investigations and toxic tort defense.
