Jeremy Heisler

Attorney in New York, NY
Jeremy Heisler is the Managing Partner of the New York Office and a Founding Partner of Sanford Heisler, LLP, a national law firm with offices in Washington, D.C., New York, and California. He received his law degree, magna cum laude, from Brooklyn Law School in 1979.
Throughout his more than thirty year legal career, Mr. Heisler has had notable success in class actions and complex multi-party and multi-state litigation, producing more than $200 million in benefits to class members. Mr. Heisler has established leading employment-law precedents, including the expansion of the rights of wrongfully discharged employees. He also has prevailed in novel and groundbreaking litigation against some of the largest companies in the nation.
Mr. Heisler's most recent victory came in In Re Novartis Wage and Hour Litigation. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that sales representatives employed by pharmaceutical giant Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation were entitled to overtime pay under Federal, New York and California law. The U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari and let the decision stand. This ruling has wide implications for the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and for wage and hour overtime litigation in general.
Mr. Heisler's successes have been as consistent as they are varied. He tried to verdict a police brutality case and won a judgment of nearly $500,000. He also prosecuted many significant class actions, including a case against G.E. Capital with a $19.2 million settlement (consumers overcharged with illegal fees), and a case against a major leasing company with a $15 million settlement (consumers defrauded).
Mr. Heisler served as an appellate law clerk for a major Appellate Court in New York State, where he drafted bench memoranda and judicial opinions for the justices on appeals ranging from constitutional law actions and criminal prosecutions to multi-million dollar real estate litigation.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
