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.

Lawsuit Seeks to Hold Catholic Church Accountable in New York and Florida for Alleged Abuse

Suit claims Diocesse of Rockville Centre on Long Island knowingly sent a priest previously accused of abuse to Florida and is therefore responsible for alleged abuse there

When Mark Cattell was 9 years old in 1981, he said, he met a priest who had been transferred to Florida from a Long Island, N.Y., diocese. He said the priest fondled him after Mass. On another occasion, he said, the priest forced him to give oral sex.

“I remember him wagging his finger at me, and saying, ‘Don’t you let anybody know about this,’ ” Mr. Cattell, now a 45-year-old magistrate in Alexandria, Va., said in an interview. For decades, he remained silent.
