Jeff Herman has carved out a significant career as one of the most highly regarded lawyers and advocates for victims of sexual abuse and rape. Although Mr. Herman was initially a commercial litigator, after learning of a case in 1997 for which a four-year-old child had been abused at daycare, he was inspired to alter his practice, and today, he focuses solely on rape and sexual abuse. In the time since, which has amounted to more than two decades, Mr. Herman has consistently blazed the trail for attorney’s specializing in childhood sexual abuse, heading the firm, Herman Law, of which he is a founding partner, as well as managing partner.
In order to bring his ideas to life, Jeff Herman heavily utilizes his investigate unit, which is a sector of his team made up of former law enforcement officials. By relying on the different sectors of his team, Jeff Herman is able to map out his intended processes on a whiteboard, strictly utilizing a tunnel-vision approach. This concise process is necessary for Jeff Herman and his team to achieve success, as outside detractions or incorrect details mistaken to be facts could lead to setbacks and other detriments. Although the numbers associated with sexual abuse cases seems to be climbing, Mr. Herman is excited about the number of victims that are going public with their situations, as he deems this to be the first step in helping them to heal, and continue productive lives.
When looking back on his younger self, Jeff Herman believes that if there were any advice he’d dispense, it would center around the choice to enjoy the ride a little more. The journey to get to a particular point in one’s career should be enjoyed, as anxiety and anticipation regarding the end result, could rob you of some of the positives to be taken. As Jeff Herman continues to grow his business, he sites his ability to remain immersed in his particular area of law, that has allowed him to become a “better advocate for victims.”
