Jamie Heiberger-Harrison is widely recognized as a leading female attorney in the Greater New York City real estate industry, having achieved unprecedented success while still in her mid-30s. That success derives from her ability to simultaneously think like a businessperson and a lawyer.
Born and raised in Jericho, New York, her interest in the legal intricacies of the real estate market began at an early age. In 1990, after graduating with honors from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in political science, she attended Brooklyn Law School, where she earned her Juris Doctorate in 1993. She was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1994. While still in law school, Jamie joined Lindenbaum & Young in Brooklyn Heights, a longstanding, well-respected landlord-tenant firm, where she assisted both in court and in the office, translating the vast scope of legal knowledge she had amassed into practical, hands-on experience in the complex New York real estate market. Jamie then moved with one of the firm’s partners to his successor firm in Manhattan, Sperber, Denenberg and Barany, where she was a senior associate, handling heavy court work and where she started handling both contracts and closings. In 1996, at just 27 years old, having developed a strong passion for commercial and residential real estate, Jamie embraced the challenge of striking out on her own. That year, she founded Heiberger & Associates, P.C., a real estate law firm focusing on two major areas; 1-representation of commercial and residential building owners and management companies in all landlord-tenant legal needs; and 2- representation of lenders, Purchasers and Sellers of multifamily properties as well as individual cooperative & condominium units.
