About Us

Prior to opening my own firm, I began my legal career as a paralegal in Cleveland, Ohio assisting in civil litigation and specializing in all areas of plaintiff’s personal injury. After graduating from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, I began practicing law in the state of Michigan where I represented injured drivers, passengers, motorcyclists and pedestrians that were involved in automobile accidents.


When I moved to New York, I specialized in real estate closings and had the pleasure of assisting the public and several Patrolman Benevolent Associations, such as the Rockland County PBA and the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, in the areas of Workers’ Compensation, NYS local retirement litigation, General Municipal Law Section 207(a) and 207(c), motor vehicle accidents, and other plaintiff personal injury matters. I also had the honor and privilege of assisting several 911 first responders in obtaining benefits under the NY Workers’ Compensation Law and the Victims Compensation Fund (Zadroga Act) which they so rightfully deserved.


Since moving to New York, I have represented claimants in NY Workers’ Compensation and plaintiff personal injury matters ranging from car/motor vehicle accidents, dental and medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, wrongful death, and slip/trip and fall. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two stepchildren and staying active by going hiking and running, doing hot yoga, and participating in Spartan races with my friends.

Practice Areas

Workers’ Compensation

If you get injured on the job, workers compensation is a type of insurance that provides monetary and/or medical benefits regardless of fault. It is important that you report this injury to your employer and seek medical treatment for your injuries right away.

Obtaining the benefits and settlement you are entitled to for a work-related accident can be extremely difficult as you could be getting denied the benefits you so rightfully deserve. I will do whatever it takes to make sure you get the benefits and/or settlement that you deserve for your injuries.

Car and Motor Vehicle Accidents

It is shocking how many automobile accidents occur in New York per year that lead to serious injury and sometimes even death, so if you were injured in an automobile accident that was caused by the negligence of another person or company, you are not alone.

There are many different types of automobile accidents. These kinds of accidents can occur in a car, while using public transportation, as a pedestrian, and more.

If you were injured in one of these accidents and have suffered serious injury, you have the right to be compensated for your property damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. In the state of New York, there is a limited amount of time you have to bring a lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries so it is imperative that you contact me so I can fight for you to receive proper compensation for your injuries.

Slip/Trip and Fall

When you slip and fall on commercial or private property, the owners or caretakers of this property can be held responsible for failing to clean or warn passersby of any unsafe and hazardous conditions. If this happens to you it is important to report this incident as soon as possible so an investigation of the scene can be performed, it can be determined who is ultimately responsible, and once liability is established pursue compensation for your economic loss and your pain and suffering.

You can slip/trip and fall just about anywhere. Some examples of these places are: 

  • Slipping on water, ice, snow, food, drink, cleaning solutions, gasoline, oil or other auto fluids;
  • Tripping over broken or uneven pavement or sidewalk;
  • Falling due to broken or nonexistent lighting;
  • Falling or tripping into a hole; and uneven steps or height changes in floor.

In the state of New York, there is a limited amount of time you have to bring a lawsuit for your injuries so it is imperative that you contact me so I can fight for you to receive proper compensation for your injuries.

Nursing Home Neglect and Wrongful Death

The decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is a difficult one, but it becomes even more difficult when that loved one is not treated with the care, dignity, and respect that they deserve. This can lead to serious injury or tragic loss of life.

Nursing home cases can be complex because they can involve multiple theories of liability, such as medical malpractice, but most of these cases fall under the theory of negligence. A nursing home is also responsible for the actions of its employees and have to answer for harm that results from negligence related to things such as hiring unqualified individuals; poor staff training; failure to follow procedures and protocols; failure to supervise; failure to follow orders; and inadequate facilities and equipment.

Due to the nursing home and its employee’s negligence its residents suffer harm such as:

  • Bedsores,
  • Fall, Fractures, and Bruises,
  • Dehydration and Malnutrition, 
  • Infection,
  • Weight Loss,
  • Medication Errors, 
  • Physical Assault and Verbal Abuse,
  • Wrongful Death.

In the state of New York, there is a certain amount of time you have to bring a lawsuit for the aforementioned causes of action so it is imperative that you contact me so I can fight for you and your loved ones to receive the compensation your family rightfully deserves.

“Abe Lincoln, Clarence Darrow, and Mary Jo White. Arguably some of the world’s greatest attorneys, but none hold a match to Heather Nappi. Heather Nappi represented me in a workers’ compensation case and has gone above and beyond since day one. She’s brilliant, trusting, and is thoroughly informative throughout the whole process. I don’t know where I’d be without Mrs. Nappi.

I was a bag of nerves during this ordeal and she was always in my corner fighting for my case whilst simultaneously keeping me at ease. Her professionalism, kindness, and courtesy is unmatched. Leaving you with a feeling of tranquil stability. Heather represented me for a year and a half, with her stellar skills, and exceptional lawyering she won me a 6 figure settlement.
