Jerry Heubel is a seasoned trial attorney who focuses his practice on the defense of high-exposure medical malpractice claims. He has litigated numerous cases in New York City’s five counties as well as in Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties, and has taken dozens of these cases to verdict.
For nearly 25 years, Jerry has defended hospitals and physicians in medical malpractice claims arising in all areas of medical specialty from neurology and obstetrics to orthopedics and plastic surgery. He also regularly defends nursing homes in litigation arising from the development of decubitis ulcers, falls that lead to severe injuries, allegations of failure to diagnose or properly treat patients, and other such claims.
Another aspect of Jerry’s practice involves the representation of physicians, dentists, chiropractors and podiatrists as well as architects, engineers and other professionals in disciplinary and licensing matters. In this regard, Jerry draws on the insights he gained in his former role as a prosecuting attorney for the New York State Education Department, Office of Professional Discipline, where he spent seven years handling disciplinary and licensing matters involving a diverse range of professionals.
