Empathetic, tenacious and strategic, Ilan Heimanson has built a reputation as a plaintiff’s attorney with a thoughtful, deliberate and aggressive approach to his clients’ injury claims. His comprehensive handling of each client matter provides a large-picture perspective that supports clients’ goals and needs. This approach has resulted in multimillion dollar verdicts and hundreds of negotiated settlements that Ilan has obtained for his clients in courtrooms and during mediations and arbitrations across California.
Ilan has insisted on holding wrongdoers responsible in a wide variety of circumstances and in complex injury claims involving technical issues, such as those underlying construction injury, product defect and mass transportation disasters.
Ilan represents people who have suffered catastrophic injuries and wrongful death injuries as a result of the negligence, abuse, wrongful conduct, bad faith and dangerous practices of individuals, government entities and corporations.
Ilan is also an avid bicyclist, and his time on his bike has taught him that even when you ride smart and stay safe, the automobile centric culture of Los Angeles make bicycle accidents a question of “when” not “if.” Ilan is committed to being a resource for all cyclists, through education, community activism, advocacy, and if need be, representation.
In one complex, construction accident injury case, Ilan served as co-counsel on a team of attorneys that obtained $30 million for a dozen plaintiffs during a six-month trial. Ilan obtained a $3.3 million verdict for his cement mason client, a considerably larger amount than the $15,000 pre-trial offer.
In another case Ilan managed to secure a unanimous, 12-0 verdict, in favor of our client in a complex medical malpractice matter involving failure to timely treat a heart attack. The jury returned a verdict of $1.34 million. Throughout the 3 years of litigation, and the 3 weeks of trial, the only offer in settlement extended by the defendant was a waiver of costs ($0.00).
In 2014 Ilan has been selected as a Super Lawyer by California Super Lawyers Magazine, a publication that lists the top 2.5% of noteworthy attorneys. Prior to that, Ilan was recognized as a “Rising Star” for that publication for four consecutive years 2009-2012.
