HOUSTON, TX (July 10, 2020) – Chaffe McCall welcomes Heather S. von Sternberg to its Insurance Litigation practice in Houston. 

Heather joins the firm as an Associate with a practice focusing on litigation.  She is a highly regarded and experienced litigator having represented both plaintiffs and defendants. A veritable utility player, she has substantial experience in commercial litigation, maritime law, defense and indemnity, insurance coverage, and personal injury and wrongful death defense. 

Prior to joining Chaffe McCall, Heather counseled both large and small companies in matters pending in state and federal court, and she has tried cases to completion before both juries and the bench.

“We are excited about Heather’s addition to our team. Her extensive knowledge will enhance our firm’s capabilities in insurance work and will deepen our ability to serve as a resource to clients,” said Chaffe McCall’s Managing Partner, Julie Livaudais.  

Heather graduated cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center in 1996. She received her Bachelor of Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing from the University of Texas at Austin.  As a first-year attorney, she prepared a response to a request for proposal from a potential new London insurance client that succeeded in gaining the firm a coveted spot on that company’s list of preferred legal services providers. As a result, she was seconded to that client for three months, where she gained an intricate knowledge of the London market and sparked her interest in all things insurance-related.  Heather was a National Merit Scholar, a distinction that is awarded to less than one percent of eligible applicants.  

Chaffe McCall provides a full range of legal services to national and international corporate clients from its offices in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Houston, and Lake Charles.  For more information on the firm, please visit www.chaffe.com.
