Heather N. Oehlmann, Senior Associate
Heather Oehlmann is a Senior Associate with Rutter & Roy. She focuses her practice on litigation matters, particularly related to condemnation proceedings for linear construction projects and other large-scale construction projects.

Given the highly technical nature of the subject matter, Heather's attention to detail is one of her most valuable professional characteristics.

Heather is skilled at effectively advocating for clients under time constraints, while simultaneously ensuring they are receiving extraordinary service and advocating in a concise, efficient and highly focused manner.

Heather has hands-on responsibility for the full range of litigation-related activities, ranging from depositions to motion practice and discovery, as well as trying cases in both courtroom proceedings, commissioner hearings and other adversarial proceedings. Prior to joining Rutter & Roy, Heather worked as a litigator with a large Philadelphia firm where she focused her practice on commercial litigation matters

Heather earned her J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law and her B.A. degree from The College of New Jersey. Heather clerked for the Honorable Clarkson S. Fisher, Jr. in the New Jersey Appellate Division for the 2003-2004 term.
