Our Stories- The Former Employees of Heller Ehrman

I was actually interviewed as part of Nathan Koppel’s article in the Wall Street Journal today which focuses on Heller Ehrman but I was disappointed to see that there was little focus on the ex-employees of Heller Ehrman.

We all have stories to tell and with many of us (upwards of 300) still without work after more than three months, it is time that we work as a group to put a personal face on the dissolution of Heller Ehrman.

One way that you can help, is to check the News Articles section each day, look at the updates (recent articles are posted at the top) and then leave a comment on the article.  Let other readers know your story – what it has been like to be not only unemployed during one of the roughest economic times in our nation’s history, but to also not be paid wages that are owed to you.  Mention how you’ve had to scramble for medical coverage or other basic necessities.

Those that have moved on to other firms also have stories to tell especially what it was like to leave Heller after so many years. 

We need to hear from you and if you can take the time to comment on any news article you find concerning the dissolution of Heller Ehrman, it would be greatly appreciated.

Over and out.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
