Dear Friends,

I would like to welcome you and introduce you to our firm and family. The firm is celebrating more than 40 years which marks the HELD Family's fourth generation of doing business in Brooklyn, New York.

   Since the late 19th century, the HELD family has been grounded in Brooklyn, New York. Our standing and contribution to the community and in law all began with Emial Held, who moved to Brooklyn from overseas and became a United States Citizen in 1881. A few years later, Emial earned a law degree from the American Correspondence School of Law in Chicago, Illinois.

   Soon thereafter, Emial's son, Joseph, began his own successful insurance business in Brooklyn, New York, where he worked for more than sixty years.

   Finally, over 40 years ago, Edward Held, Emial's grandson, started the law firm which now includes his daughters, Alyssa and Jennifer.

   As our contributions and longevity in the community have grown, so has our firm. With state of the art computers, specially designed computer software, work stations and an experienced and superior work staff, we are able to speed cases to closure.

   The firm continues to provide legal services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Consultation with our staff remains absolutely free. If you are physically unable to come to our firm, we will come to you.
