For Herman Law, case results are measured not only by a monetary settlement or verdict, but also by the healing and empowerment of our clients through the litigation process.
While earning a positive result that compensates and provides justice for survivors of sexual abuse is our ultimate goal, the team at Herman Law understands the sensitive, confusing, and emotional situations our clients face, and we put great emphasis and pride in ensuring that the litigation process is as positive, empowering, and stress-free as possible.
