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.

Public Schools

Public Schools

Because they receive federal funding from the US Government, Public Schools are in most states, protected from liability by what is called “Sovereign Immunity”. This means that public schools either have monetary damage caps or are completely immune from being sued through normal civil lawsuits based upon negligence and other state law claims. Herman Law, however, has successfully, and routinely, found a way to avoid sovereign immunity and sue public schools with no immunity or caps on damages. This is through lawsuits based upon Title IX.

Title IX is a federal gender discrimination law that Herman Law has used to avoid sovereign immunity when suing public schools. In fact, Herman Law paved the way for how to successfully use Title IX in sexual abuse cases against public schools. The preeminent and often cited case that set forth the legal standard for a successful sexual abuse claim against a public school based upon Title IX was won by Herman Law.
