When you see the name "Heuer the Lawyer" — pronounced "Hoyer the Lawyer" — it may come as no surprise to you that I grew up to be an attorney. Oddly enough, though, I never actually considered a career in law until my years at the University of Minnesota. You see, my friend pointed out that between my sociology degree, my minor in criminal justice, and my oh-so-perfect last name, I really had no choice but to apply to law school. The more I thought about it, the more I realized it was something I really wanted to do. And so, I set off to truly become Heuer the Lawyer.
During law school, I started working as an insurance adjuster and knew right away that I wasn’t interested in being on that side of an injury dispute. I wanted to help people move forward with their lives after an accident, not deny them the money they needed to fully recover.
Now, more than 40 years later, I’ve had the privilege of working with so many good people throughout Minneapolis and Minnesota. Families come to me with terrible news — perhaps they’ve been hurt in a car wreck, a loved one has been injured by a faulty product, or they’ve even lost someone to wrongful death — and I get to make a real difference in their lives. I can’t think of a more rewarding career.
No one calls us when they’re having a great day. They call when they need help, and we’re more than happy to oblige.
