Areas of Practice

Jeffrey M. Heller


Jeffrey M. Heller is a partner with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy Co., L.P.A., in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Heller focuses his practice solely on personal injury and medical malpractice. He specifically represents traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors in a wide range of cases, including medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability and construction defect cases.

Mr. Heller has dedicated his career to representing victims of crime and negligence, first as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Cuyahoga County, where he prosecuted cases ranging from drug possession to rape and murder, and now as a personal injury attorney, where he strives to convey his client’s injury stories and explain the physical and mental challenges they now face because of someone else’s negligence.

Mr. Heller firmly believes in the right to trial by jury and has tried more than 25 cases to jury verdict. His most recent five trials have resulted in jury verdicts of more than $3 million alone. Mr. Heller has been included on Ohio’s Rising Star list, which is selected by the research team at Super Lawyers. He’s also been selected to America’s Top 100 Personal Injury Attorneys, as well as the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40.
