Mediator's Profile


Karl Steinberger

Business Name: Heidelberg, Steinberger, Burrow & Armer, P.A.

Karl R. Steinberger has 42 years of experience practicing law in the state of Mississippi. Karl’s practice is general but primarily consists of Federal and State workers’ compensation, employment law, insurance defense, personal injury, automobile, products and premises liability, environmental law, and wills and estates.  He offers his services as a mediator in workers compensation and employment law because he believes his experience representing injured workers and employees for his first eight years and then defending those cases after that time is an asset when mediating those cases.

After an internship in the Jackson County Public Defender’s Office, he was a general practitioner in Pascagoula, Mississippi, until he joined the predecessor of Heidelberg, Steinberger, Burrow & Armer PA in 1984.
