Over the past several decades, Rachel and the firm have been a crucial part of my success. Every deal starts with the contract and then all the supporting documents which follow, including HOA documents, amendments and more. With a proper foundation, all else is built on sturdy ground. Rachel has supported me in my business for decades, as well as personal matters including Will and Advanced Directive preparation. I have come to rely on Rachel’s vast knowledge and am truly grateful to her.

Even after 8 years I will never forget what Mr. Winegrad did for me. Took on my case and made sure he covered all areas diligently, professionally making sure I was able to after 10 years fighting to get a divorce and support for my child he made it happen in short time-span and ensured that I finally received a fair and just agreement so that I could move on! He went above and beyond and at that time I didn’t have much! Now my son is going to college with full scholarship! Thank You!

Ms. Hess and her staff always provide the BEST services for a reasonable price. In addition, they have protected our properties in every way imaginable. We do not set up any new jobs without this law firm’s assistance. The very best in a complex, fluid world.

Martindale Review

No one ever wants to be in a position to need an attorney; however, life happens, and when it does, you want to be represented by the best. I have been with Stephen for over 10 years and he has never disappointed. He is honest and frank about the issues dealing with your case, he doesn’t sugarcoat anything, he’s honest. He studies the facts that you present, maps out a strategy and shares the good, the bad and the possibilities. He gives you the attention as if you are his only client.

We had an excellent experience working with Rory Parks, attorney with Winegrad, Hess & Heimlicher. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and reliable in guiding us through a complicated matter involving a tenant. We needed to appear in court, and he helped us feel confident and prepped. Rory is also personable, and helps bring a feeling of peace between people who might have difficulty speaking otherwise. We highly recommend Rory and his firm.

Winegrad, Hess and Heimlicher is an absolute pleasure to work with in regards to any legal or collections related questions or concerns. Their responsiveness, attention to detail, record keeping and final resolutions are impeccable. I work with many attorney’s and the rate at which they resolve collection cases is by far one of the best around. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone in the Property Management industry.
