Mike Herman – can’t say enough good things about him. Professional, highly knowledgeable AND a genuinely caring person. After a horrendous vehicular accident which required me to have surgery, other lawyers were hesitant to take my case because I had a pre-existing condition…even though I was found to be 100% NOT at fault! Then I found Mike – Mike does not shy away from the big insurance companies and commands settlements highly favorable to his clients. I felt safe in Mike’s hands and appreciated his updates throughout the entire process. Through his knowledge and focus on me, Mike obtained

These guys really helped me out in my time of need. I was injured on the job because of my employers negligence and Mike Herman was able to prove that in court. Mr.Herman was able to get me even more than I thought I’d ever get for my injury. If you want no nonsense straight talk then I’d give Mr.Herman a call. Even though my body will never be whole again at least I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to pay my bills and can live a happy life. Thanks Mike for helping me get justice for my injury.
