Over his career, Mark Hiepler has tried landmark cases that have garnered national media attention. His many record-setting verdicts have been featured on shows like 60 Minutes, 20/20, Nightline and The Oprah Winfrey Show and placed on the cover of publications such as Time, Newsweek, the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

But Hiepler’s climb into the public light grew out of a very personal legal struggle: “I have a unique perspective on holding a company accountable because I personally know what it’s like to battle large companies and lose a loved one,” Hiepler says.

His sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991, and when she died after her insurance company refused to cover a potentially life-saving procedure, he stepped in to handle her case, achieving a record-setting $89.3 million bad faith jury award in Riverside Superior Court. Hiepler’s closing argument from that case was included in the book Greatest Closing Arguments.

Following his sister’s case, Hiepler formed his own firm along with this wife, Michelle R. Hiepler. Their personal injury practice serves all of California, with a focus on wrongful death, catastrophic injury and insurance denial cases. Currently Hiepler serves on the plaintiffs’ steering committee for the 2008 Chatsworth Metrolink train collision case.

Hiepler was named one of the “100 Most Influential Lawyers in America” by The National Law Journal and was recently inducted into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. He has a reputation for effecting change – initiating new laws or regulations to help not only his clients and their families but to ensure that others are not harmed in the future. “When we take a case we make it our cause,” says Hiepler.
