Karl Heideck is a lawyer who bases his business in Philadelphia. As someone who used to live around the area, I thought it would be cool to sit down with him. I wanted to ask him a few questions about his area of expertise. I wanted to find out more about the process of litigation and what it all entails. I thought this would be a great way for prospective college kids, who are majoring in law, to get a better understanding of what they are getting into and what they need to be aware of
My Sit-Down With Karl Heideck
Karl Heideck, you make a living by doing this. what is a litigator?
It is a Latin term. It means to “drive a lawsuit”. What I do is drive a potential lawsuit through the courts. Some clients get left in the dirt to the judicial process. Some courts feel that they cases do not warrant being given a proper case and hearing. This is where I come in.
The process itself is what I just spoke of. This involves any civil suit. Some get a proper hearing and others do not. I make sure that a client gets the proper treatment they deserve.

Karl Heideck, What advice, if any, would you give to prospective law students who are thinking of doing this for a living?
T.V shows kind of white-wash the process. They have to do it for entertainment value. The actual process is much harder. It is rather time-consuming. You will have to go through a lot of red-tape to make each case happen. It is not easy. Some days will be easier than others. Law students should only consider this type of law if they are completely invested in the process.
