About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.

When people ask what type of law I practice, I tell them that I sue insurance companies.  And much of my practice does involve suing insurance companies on behalf of individuals and businesses who have had their insurance claims denied, delayed or underpaid.

Another part of my job is helping clients understand their insurance policies, setting out their options for fighting the claim decision, and explaining what they can expect to happen during and at the end of the fight with the insurance company.  This involves applying the insurance law to the unique facts and policy language for each policyholder.  I also draw on the experiences I’ve had with similar cases I’ve encountered over my career as an insurance attorney.

Since becoming a lawyer, I have always practiced in the area of insurance law.  Throughout that time, I've provided clients with legal advice about insurance policy interpretation, decisions about insurance claims, and I’ve helped clients determine whether insurance claim decisions were right or wrong.  Many of my cases are referred to me by other attorneys that have litigated against me or come to me with their own insurance questions.

I represent clients during the claim process and during any litigation that arises from the insurance claim.

Insurance Claim Attorney

Unfortunately, insurance claims often become adversarial in their early stages.  Some claims begin with a reservation of rights letter from the insurance company, reserving the right to deny the claim before it has even been investigated.  At times, insurance companies will make overly broad and time-consuming requests for documents, information, and statements from policyholders.

I represent clients throughout the claim process.  I help clients prepare for Examinations Under Oath and represent them during the Examination itself.  I guide clients through the claim investigation process and take over dealing with the insurance company and its adjusters, including responding to any requests for documents.  When the “insurance claim investigation” has gone too far, I work to define the line between reasonable investigation and unreasonable probing, harassment, and abuse.

I’m often involved in cases after an insurer sends a reservation of rights letter or gives an insured other clues that it might deny the insurance claim.  When I become involved in an insurance claim, my goal is to maximize the chances that the insurance company will accept insurance coverage for the claim and pay the correct amount.

Insurance Claim Lawsuits

Sometimes the only option is litigation.  I represent policyholders when they are not satisfied with the claim process—it’s moving too slowly, the insurance company is refusing to provide insurance coverage, or the insurance company has valued the claim below its fair value.  I represent clients in lawsuits, declaratory judgment actions, court proceedings, mediations, trials and appeals before judges throughout Florida and Georgia.

In some cases, insurance companies sue their own insureds and ask the court to declare that the policy does not provide insurance coverage for the claim.  I handle those cases too.

I’ve also litigated bad faith cases.

Types of Insurance Experience

I have worked cases involving virtually every type of insurance policy: commercial property insurance, homeowners insurance, commercial general liability, commercial automobile insurance, professional liability insurance, uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance, errors and omissions insurance, and life insurance.

Honest Legal Professional
We hired Jason Herman and his team to represent us against our homeowners insurance that was unwilling to pay us for hurricane damage and previous claims that were noted by multiple professionals in the housing industry stating our housing damage was weather related. The insurance company would not acknowledge ownership of the multiple claims and denied our claims sending out their own insurance claims adjusters to state they saw no areas of issues. Jason and his team stepped in and assisted us with factual proofs to challenge the insurance company to uphold its contracted obligations to us. We won our claim and settlement with the leadership of Jason Herman and his team/affiliates. They are honest, forthright, righteous and trustworthy in all their words, actions, and deeds. This is why you win when you pick Jason Herman and his team! Decades of legal knowledge and legal representation. Best in our area. Thank You Jason & Team. Mike & Dawn

Top Flight Attorney
Herman and Wells is an excellent and trustworthy team for legal troubles. We worked with Jason and he was so supportive and caring. We had a dispute with our terrible home owner’s insurance company who refused to cover damage from a exterior roof leak. Jason educated us and worked diligently to recover our costs. He kept us apprised continuously through out the process all the way through to settlement. Even post settlement he was always available and helpful. He genuinely cares about his clients and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Just a good, honest and caring person. Highly Recommend!!!

Jason gets it done!
My husband and I were referred by a friend to look into being short changed by our homeowners insurance. After almost 2 years of due diligence, Jason Herman got us the settlement we deserved. He was determined and would not take no for an answer. Thank you for your persistence and patience. We would definitely use your firm again as well as recommend to others. Thank you again to you and your staff.

If you want to win hire Jason Herman.
I would highly recommend Jason Herman, because he so patiently helped me and my family win our case. When I hired him he was very professional and knowledgeable about insurance matters and what steps, or what he would have to do in order to fight and win my case, and that is just what he did. Without a shadow of a doubt I knew that I had chosen the right firm and attorney that would help me and my family win our case. I again would highly recommend hiring Jason Herman to anyone in need of a great attorney. Thanks again Jason. Johnnie Wright.

Great Experience!
After consulting with Mr. Herman, I contracted him to help me resolve an insurance claim for a water damage claim from a flood in my home. He was very thorough, explaining each step of the process and keeping me completely up-to-date on what was happening and ultimately resulting in a fair settlement from my insurance company. I highly recommend him and his firm for positive results!

Personable, Knowledgeable, Persistent, Successful!
When our insurance company rejected our claim for damages we called a few lawyers and Jason was the only one to respond. After the initial phone conversation he felt we had a valid claim. He collected all the information needed via phone, email and in person. He kept us current on all developments; assured us when were skeptical of procedures and nervous about depositions; was confident in his knowledge of the law in this case and negotiated a substantial final settlement after 2 years and a few lower offers. He was always professional, supportive and communicative. We would recommend Jason for assistance with your insurance claims.

Shifflett v Citizens
When i was denied for a claim from Citizens Insurance Co. for damages to my home, Herman and Wells, P.A. refused to settle for the small 4 figure sum that they were offering during mediation. Instead, We went to trial by jury. Needless to say, the jury came back in our favor resulting in a 6 figure sum witch was enough for repairs and to pay off my mortgage, and buy a new vehicle. Very knowledgeable, Very experienced, Excellent trial attorneys. Thanks Jason and Cliff for my future.

Lucked Out
I was referred to Jason Herman by the Hillsborough County Attorney referral office. Jason happened to be in Pinellas County. Never got to meet him personally and never needed to. He listened, and treated me like a customer. What a novel approach. I signed a contract with him, he acted immediately and got results. The most stressful time in my life is now looking brighter again. I thank God that Jason was referred to me even though he was a County away. Thank you Jason for Listening, communicating, and taking immediate action to get my life back on track.

Smart..patient.On His Game!!!!
Believe it or not I found Jason on the internet...I needed an insurance lawyer and didnt know one. After speaking with him...he was the only one that called me back in a few minutes I decided to hire him. I wished for the best but figured the worse, but I was PLEASANTLY surprised. He was pleasant, patient but on his game. Hes a strong lawyer and after Travelers turned me down on my insurance claim of 9K, he fought them and got me 22K. Silly Travelers!!!! I think Insurance companies just turn down claims thinking that people wont fight them and hoping people will just go away...but between myself and Jason Herman they had an enlightening::)) Whats right is right and Jason fought for the right thing. Thank you Jason Herman::))

Chose the right Attorney to fight my battle!
Jason knew the right angles to take when challenging my prior home owner insurance company, People's Trust Insurance. His interpretation of the law and how to put my rights to work for me, resulted in a win! I recommend Jason to handle your insurance case.
