Heffler has been a leader in claims administration since the 1960s, when demand for those services first emerged. Under the tutelage of founding partner Jacob Heffler, who started his career with the FBI's Bank Fraud Division under J. Edgar Hoover, the firm has been at the forefront of the claims administration field from the beginning. With his background and knowledge of forensic accounting, Mr. Heffler established a solid team of professionals with a unique perspective on the process and special expertise in accounting, tax and governmental rules and regulations.
By the 1970s, Edward J. Radetich, Jr., had joined the firm and its claims administration staff. He became actively involved in the 1980s with the hearings on Qualified Settlement Funds, and made recommendations to the US Department of Treasury for the drafting of those regulations. Since then, he has become Executive Partner and expanded Heffler Claims Group to one of the largest and most respected service providers in the United States. Like Mr. Heffler, Mr. Radetich recognizes the importance of developing talent and building strong relationships with clients - a management philosophy that is the cornerstone of the Heffler Claims Group practice.
