What It Takes to Be a Litigator Like Philadelphia’s Karl Heideck

     The worst guide to a career in law is television. Boston Legal created a sense of glamor around a fraternity setting that begged for lawsuits against the heroes Denny Crane and Alan Shore. Law & Order teaches that every major prosecution can be handled in just 42 minutes. And many others do little justice to the profession, either.

In this article, we will discuss just how one becomes a litigator, and then profile one of the brightest minds in the field.

 

How to Become a Litigator

Step 1 is to get a bachelor’s degree. Unlike the medical field, one does not have to have a strong pre-law background. A degree in history, accounting, or communications will suffice.

Step 2 is to take the LSAT. Most graduate schools require students to take the GMAT, and medical school hopefuls take the MCAT. For law school, it’s the LSAT.

Step 3 is to complete law school.

Step 4 is to pass your state’s bar exam.

Following these qualifications, a person can go to court on behalf of someone else in the state in which he is qualified to practice. However, experience goes a long way, and without it, better lawyers will win even with a weak case.

 

Karl Heideck

Among the top 40 lawyers under 40 in the Philadelphia area, Karl Heideck stands out more than most. This Temple University graduate has spent the better part of a decade excelling in the area of conflict resolution while fighting to protect the rights of others.

Karl Heideck is most notably known for his protection of the civil liberties of author and Iraq War veteran, Christopher Pascale, whose book War Poems: A Marine’s Tour 2003-2008 was under threat of being banned. Mr. Heideck, knowing that the best litigation happens outside the courtroom, took the responsible groups to task and as of November, 2016, the book was permitted a full release.

To say the least, Karl Heideck is an American hero who worked to fight for the rights of someone who served our country with honor.

Law careers are not like we see on TV, but there is a need for good, skilled attorneys. For those who have what it takes, important work is waiting to be done. For those who are thinking of going into law, just think of Karl Heideck, and use his examples (there are many) as your guide.

How To Have Fun In Napa Valley Beyond The Wine

     When planning on touring Napa Valley, most travelers only think about going on wine tours. One wine vintner, The Traveling Vineyard, wants people to know that while some of the world’s best wines do come from this region of California there are actually other sights to see in order to really experience the valley. They let people in on some of these locations recently.

The ground of Napa Valley is perfect for growing grapes. As it turns out it’s also fantastic for growing olives. Round Pond Estate is a great spot to visit as it is the home to world-class olives that are created through the use of old-school methods of growing them as well as harvesting them. In addition to selling olives at this estate, they also sell olive oils, vinegars, and other accompaniments such as herbs and flower craft oils.

Another place that’s a great place to visit is the Auberge Spa at Calistoga Ranch. This area has natural hot springs that are rich in minerals. There are also other activities at the ranch including hot air balloon rides, hiking trails, yoga classes, and other entertainment options.

Traveling Vineyard produces several types of wines which includes some from grapes in Napa Valley. Their wines are sold through Wine Guides, independent home-based business owners who hold wine tasting parties in their client’s homes. After each informal and fun wine tasting the client and their guests get to order bottles of Traveling Vineyard wine which are then delivered straight to their door.

Being a Wine Guide comes with a number of perks. Each Wine Guide is free to set their own schedule, working as much as their schedules and desires allow. While some remain small businesses, there are Wine Guides who form larger companies by hiring other Wine Guides to work for them. A new Wine Guide receives a Success Kit which includes all of the glasses, accessories, and marketing material they need to get established. The Success Kit will also include enough wine for them to host their first two wine tasting events.
