Julie Heiden Named Personal Injury Law Professional of the Year

By Peter DePaolis

Virginia injury attorney Julie Harry Heiden, partner at Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis L.L.P., has been named a Cambridge Who’s Who Professional of the Year in Personal Injury Law.

While inclusion in the Cambridge Who’s Who Registry is an honor, only a small selection of members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Cambridge Who’s Who membership.

By relying on a blend of her faith and support from her co-workers and team, Ms. Heiden has expertly litigated personal injury cases throughout the Fairfax region for 18 years. It is her willingness to continue expanding her knowledge of the field that has made her stand apart from other attorneys in her field. She specializes in representing individuals with personal injury and workers compensation cases.

While managing numerous trial cases at once, she prioritizes her clients’ needs, physically and financially. Initially inspired by her childhood soccer coach, who was a lawyer by profession, Ms. Heiden proves her passion for helping others attain justice.

Ms. Heiden earned a JD from George Mason University School of Law in 1992, after graduating with a bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, from Shepherd College in 1988 and attending the master’s program in public administration at Florida State University. At George Mason University, she was editor-in-chief of the Civil Rights Law Journal, which contributes informative commentary on a variety of civil-rights-related issues to the legal community. Upon receiving a JD, Ms. Heiden was admitted to the Virginia Bar (1992) and the District of Columbia Bar (1994). Currently, she is admitted to practice before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, Superior Court for the District of Columbia, and all courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia. To remain abreast of industry changes, she is affiliated with the Fairfax Bar Association and the American Bar Association.

If you have been injured, attorney Heiden and the team at Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis LLP can protect your rights. For a free consultation, contact our Washington, D.C. office by calling (800) 724-4221.
