Experienced Legal Advocates for
Sex Abuse Victims

Herman Law exclusively represents sex abuse cases nationwide. The legal professionals at Herman Law have championed thousands of sexual abuse cases for brave men, women and children for over 25 years. Our attorneys have been nationally recognized as some of the strongest victim advocates in the area of sex abuse litigation.

Herman Law is the nation’s leading law firm for victims of sexual abuse. Our team’s most notable cases include the representation of institutional sex abuse victims where the abuse occurred by Clergy, in the Foster Care System, in Schools, Health Centers, Camps, Day Cares, Boy Scouts, and other institutions.

We understand not only what needs to be accomplished in order to achieve justice for our clients, but also which paths to take in order to achieve that justice.

Why Victims of Sexual Abuse
Choose Herman Law

Herman Law recognizes that healing from sexual abuse is a complex, multi-dimensional journey. A civil lawsuit is only one part of the journey. Our team of talented lawyers is prepared to represent all types of victims in all types of sexual abuse in civil cases. Our attorneys represent all ages, from children to adults, who have been sexually assaulted.

Herman Law is knowledgeable in the different types of claims available for sexual abuse survivors in both state and federal law. This is significant because sometimes the most obvious and widely-used claims are not in the best interest of the client due to damage caps, statutes of limitation, and other procedural issues. Less experienced lawyers are unacquainted with the vast legalities and unique circumstances surrounding sexual abuse cases. Our team understands the nuances of sexual abuse cases and is well-versed in the different evidence requirements.

Herman Law has significant in-house resources to ensure each case receives the attention and care it deserves, including a Special Investigative Unit and a dedicated group of child sexual abuse lawyers.

Our extensively trained and experienced child sexual abuse lawyers advocate for survivors of sexual abuse, exploitation and rape. They are committed to helping sex abuse victims of these horrible crimes heal their wounds by empowering them through the legal process. Our law firm’s goal is to protect children by exposing predators and holding those who protect them responsible.

Justice, healing, and accountability are not
just words to us.
They are our guiding principles.

TESTIMONIALS

"If I were speaking to another family of abuse I would tell that if you are looking for someone to take you seriously, treat you with respect and integrity I would call the Herman Law firm."

Recent Client

"Herman Law, particularly the paralegal, she's been amazing. She always validates my feelings and what I'm going through and my phone calls. She listens to me and I feel validated, like I have power over what happened and power over what's going to happen. It makes me feel like I'm not alone anymore."

Recent Client

"It takes a little guts to come up and say all this stuff now. You know, try not to be judged. But the people who do this kind of stuff, they should be judged."

    What to Expect: Our Process

    Families and victims are often overwhelmed in the wake of sexual abuse. The immediate issues facing victims are often daunting, confusing, and stressful for victims and families. Herman Law supports victims and their families throughout litigation and we do our best to protect victims from the intimidations that go along with a sexual abuse case: police involvement, state investigations, school meetings, phone calls from attorneys and investigators, media coverage, surprise lawsuits, and emotional devastation.

    We are empathetic to the fact that speaking about the experience can be incredibly difficult. Our attorneys are open and patient with victims. We believe it is through sharing the traumatic experience that often begins the journey to healing, and our streamlined process is designed to get right to the core of the issue, leaving no stone unturned.

    Herman Law lays out the step-by-step roadmap for victims to take control and get their life back on track.

    The initial 30 days are crucial for successfully litigating a sexual abuse lawsuit. During this time, Herman Law focuses on developing the case and positioning it in the most advantageous way for our client. The process includes strategy discussions with the client, implementing the confirmed strategy, and the diligent preservation and collection of evidence. The in-house Special Investigative Unit at Herman Law is deeply thorough and works in tandem with the attorney assigned to your case.

    Forever on Your Side

    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.
