Our Team in Action

Making headlines around the world

Sexual abuse thrives in secrecy and silence. When our brave clients speak out and reveal what happened to them and inform the general public, kids are protected and healing can begin. 

The media is particularly crucial to the advancement of our cause to protect children.  Through press conferences, media statements, and television interviews, we can shine a light on the evil deeds that are done in the dark.  Members of the media often contact our attorneys to offer comment on various issues surrounding sexual abuse, rape, and sexual exploitation.  Media inquiries should be directed to Herman Law Media Director Kayla Repan at 305-931-2200 or email krepan@hermanlaw.com.
