Attorney Profile

The founder of her eponymous law firm, Heidi A. Hillyer focuses her practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Her firm is based in Winter Springs, Florida, and she represents clients throughout Seminole County and other parts of the greater Orlando metropolitan area. Ms. Hillyer was admitted to practice in Florida in 2015, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Ms. Hillyer attended the University of Florida, where she pursued a liberal arts and sciences education and received an associate degree. She then spent several years managing direct marketing campaigns before returning to college and obtaining a Bachelor of Science in technical management summa cum laude from DeVry University. Ms. Hillyer then enrolled at the Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law. While she was there, she was an editor of the Barry Law Review, and she interned at the 18th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida before being awarded her Juris Doctor magna cum laude in 2015.

Ms. Hillyer’s personal injury client base is comprised of people who have incurred substantial harm due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties. Her primary caseload in this regard has involved truck and other types of motor vehicle accidents, but her experience has extended to slips and falls and other forms of premises liability. Ms. Hillyer has also assisted people who have been injured on the job, and in some cases, she is able to file a personal injury lawsuit against a nonemployer third party that is at fault, which can bring additional compensation that is not provided by workers’ compensation benefits. Her successful track record in all of these endeavors has earned her a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo.
