Mr. Herriott is well known for successfully representing clients in matters involving the issues of divorce, custody and visitation, child support, alimony, property distribution and domestic violence.


In 2008, Mr. Herriott successfully litigated numerous cases involving parties who were seeking the legal and physical custody of their children.

    I have had many cases with Mr. Herriott as opposing counsel and have always found him to be fully prepared, well versed in the law, professional, trustworthy. I can also count on him to be willing to fight as needed for his client's interests while at the same time cooperatively working to settle our clients' respective issues as opposed to pushing for unnecessary costly litigation.
