My primary practice areas are criminal defense and litigation.
 
My criminal defense practice includes representing individuals accused of a variety of crimes, including felonies, misdemeanors and serious traffic violations.   Furthermore, I was previously an Assistant District Attorney with the Schuylkill County District Attorney's Office, prosecuting criminal cases in Schuylkill County from the preliminary hearing stage all the way through jury trials and subsequent appeals. 
 
In my civil litigation practice, I represent both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of disputes, including personal injury and wrongful death, as well as real estate, commercial, construction, landlord-tenant, employment, discrimination, and collection litigation issues.
 
I also handle real estate, wills/estate planning and the estate/probate process.

My offices are based in Schuylkill County, and I spend most of my time operating out of the Pottsville, Tamaqua, Orwigsburg and Pine Grove offices.  However, I am available by appointment in our other offices.  Furthermore, I regularly represent clients in numerous counties throughout the region - including Carbon, Northumberland, Berks, Dauphin and Lebanon counties.
 
I have been licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania since 2004, and became licensed to practice in North Carolina in 2008.  In 2009, I was also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
 
Outside of the practice of law, I serve as an active volunteer firefighter with Hose Hook and Ladder Fire Company No. 1, holding the rank of Captain.  In addition, I also am the Vice President of the Pine Grove Volunteer Firefighters’ Relief Association, which provides funding to the fire department for training and equipment.

Great Litigation Attorney
I hired Attorney Herber to represent me in a litigation matter. He was very knowledgeable about the problem. Negotiations were tried at the beginning to try and resolve the matter out of court. However, the other side ignored our attempt to resolve it, and so we proceeded to court. The matter went through the court system pretty quick. I was actually surprised with how rapidly it was handled. We had a couple hearings, after which the Judge ruled in my favor. Success! Attorney Herber kept me informed of each step in the process, gave me options as to how we could proceed, and also explained the advantages and disadvantages of each option to me, in a way that I could understand them.
