A National Law Firm for Victims of Sexual Abuse, Handling cases across the Country

Herman Law has attorneys who are admitted in NY, FL and the California bar (see lawyer bios ). This allows the Herman Law attorneys, if they are not already admitted to the court, to apply to appear as attorneys of record in all 50 States of the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as all Federal District Courts, by requesting that the judge presiding over a case permit them to appear Pro Hac Vice (“for this occasion only”).

Often we do this in association with a knowledgeable local attorney in that jurisdiction who provides insight into local legal custom and practice and assists in the logistics for matters in that jurisdiction.

Campus Sexual Assault

Campus Sexual Assault

The culture of sexual assault on college campuses has resulted in a staggering number of campus sexual abuse victims. These victims face enormous obstacles in pursuing justice such as stigmatizing of the victim, campus investigation procedures, victim blaming, and a trend of leniency for the alleged perpetrators in the criminal case.

Herman Law understands the unique challenges campus sexual assault victims face, and is prepared to help victims seek justice and navigate the obstacles in overcoming the culture of campus sexual assault.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released a list of the higher education institutions under investigation for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints.

Under federal law, sexual violence refers to physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent — including rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual abuse and sexual coercion.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.

According to the OCR, releasing this list advances a key goal of the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault to bring more transparency to the federal government’s enforcement activities around this issue.

This list reflects investigations open as of May 1, 2014.
