Karl Heideck is a Philadelphia-based attorney dedicated to serving the law. He currently works in risk management as well as in compliance, and his ability as a communicator is well known.

Heideck is a prolific legal writer who frequently publishes essays on numerous well-regarded legal websites. Heideck has also created a “Guide for Success” for new and aspiring litigation attorneys. This well-regarded publication offers a wealth of information for new attorneys who want to know what it really takes to work as a successful attorney like Heideck in today’s complex legal environment.

One of Heideck’s most recent pieces was published on the site The piece offers information on what the life of a practicing litigator really involves, and how to succeed in it. In Heideck’s words, the role of a litigator, working on civil (non-criminal) cases is to act as a sort of go-between between the two sides in a case. Ultimately, the goal is to bring the two sides in a case to a state of agreement, where one side will accept a settlement offer from the other side and resolve the dispute.

Though not every case will end in a settlement agreement (meaning the case will have to be tried in a court of law), a settlement agreement is generally the preferred outcome. Though getting to an agreement involves time and legal fees, this course is usually much less expensive (on many levels) than going to court. A court case also has an element of unpredictability which can add to the stress involved on all sides, which is another reason a settlement agreement is usually the preferred route.

Karl Heideck is dedicated to aiding in the understanding of how the law works, and his work as a communicator serves that goal completely.
