I asked a friend for a referral for an attorney to help my husband and I get out of a mortgage that was 75% under water. She took several months, but came back with Ed's name. I contacted him immediately and was able to see him within a few days. Ed's first question was, "what do you want after everything is said and done?" I told him 3 things, and then he told me, "I can make sure all of those happen!" I left that first meeting feeling like the weight of the world had been lifted from my shoulders! At the next meeting, 6 weeks later, Ed told us EXACTLY what to expect and when to expect it. We hired him that day. It is now 23 months later, we have gotten the three things we wanted in exactly the amount of time he said it would happen. He is not only a knowledgeable attorney, but, also kind, compassionate, and fair. He contacted me in January, 2019 to tell me that he would not be charging me anymore because we had paid him enough! I mentioned this to friends and family and they were shocked! Just showed me again I had the right guy!!! I have referred Ed to several other people, and, I know of at least one of those people have hired him. Hire Ed! You will NEVER regret it!

I'd give Ed 10 stars out of 5 if I could.
Ed is FANTASTIC. Ed negotiated realistic, payable old credit card debts that allowed me to avoid bankruptcy. For my brother, Ed arranged a live-able, manageable student loan repayment plan. He then provided valuable estate advice and guidance for us both. Ed is one of the easiest attorneys to speak with regarding any problem/financial situation. He is attentive, thorough, thoughtful, and earnest. I wholeheartedly recommend Ed.

Knowledgeable and Very Helpful
I was referred to Ed by a friend, and he was extremely knowledgeable and actually willing to listen. He gave me free legal advice and did not just push for me to hire an attorney. He helped me determine what courses of action I had the choice to use and was very respectful . I would definitely use Ed Herman for any future legal matters. Thank you Ed.

Peace of Mind!
I had the blessing and the pleasure of having a phone conversation with Attorney Ed Herman this morning. Ed was referred to me through the Keller Williams Realtor Eddie Golden, who was so helpful in selling my sister Gail’s house. Attorney Herman was gracious, kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about guiding us through the somewhat intimidating process of transferring property after the death of our mother and personally calling ahead to the title office to be sure we got it right. We are resting a lot easier and have total peace of mind and confidence because of Ed’s assistance. I should probably mention that he didn’t charge anything for his help! Thank you so much Ed! Don and Gail

Contracted & conflicted
Mr Herman consulted with me on a fairly complex contract and sheriff sale situation that was not even in his county. I only wish he could have represented me in my area. I really appreciated his time and expertise.

My Sister's business and personal estate lawsuit & foreclosure
Initially needed legal advise regarding my sister's ownership of a rental apartment and commercial property, an LLC corporation. About one year ago, one apartment renter filed lawsuit alleging accidental death as a result of slip and fall claim. My sister attended all scheduled court dates, whereas plaintiff's attorney did not attend any. According to Ohio State law, my sister should have retained a lawyer to represent her, which she choose to not retain a legal representative. Judge after three (3) scheduled court appearance without her lawyer, the Judge issued a summary judgment in the amount of $500K, just because she did not retain legal representation. With Mr. Herman's guidance and appropriate legal advise, we choose to challenge the Judge's summary judgment. Mr. Herman won upon appeal that resulted in an over-turning the Judge's decision. Plaintiff subsequently dropped further legal action. Unfortunately shortly after the Judge's summary judgment, my sister passed away from an initial brain aneurysm, then several years later was affected with cancer, that she fought through over her last six (6) years. This also adversely effected her business. Many months after the slip and fall claim, an additional suit was filed against her personal loan that was guaranteed by her rental apartment and commercial property. This suit is currently in process of being foreclosed. Early in the legal process, my sister also requested my opinion and guidance on these matters. Mr. Herman has professionally administered both suits to my complete satisfaction, even in spite of the fact of the loss of her rental property assets. Ed's resolution of the $500K trip and fall suit to my sisters benefit was unexpected; yet, she would have been very pleased since she truly believed her business was not at fault for the slip and fall claim. Throughout all of the above, I sincerely appreciate Ed's efforts on my sister's behalf. He is very articulate individual, he needed to dumb down the legal issues for my sister and my behalf (made the legal issues and procedures more easily understandable so that we could make informed decisions), and Ed's invoices were fair, reasonable, and truly reflected his efforts! He earned my sister's, as well as mine, trust and faith in his guidance and legal recommendations. Above all, I sincerely respect and thank Ed for his compassion and empathy while my sister struggled through her health conditions. The best complement is that I would seek his legal guidance if I was in need of a lawyer.

Great attorney
Ed was excellent to work with. He kept me apprised of all developments in my case in a timely manner, and was quick to return a phone call or email. He treated me with respect, valued my opinion and wishes, and provided me with the information I needed to make informed decisions. I highly recommend Ed if you find yourself needing a foreclosure attorney.

Ms.
I'm currently serving in the U.S. Army on active duty. When I left Cleveland for a new assignment, I was not able to sell my house. The bank rejected my application for deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. After the bank began a foreclosure lawsuit, Ed was appointed as my military attorney. Ed got it done for me: the deed-in-lieu was accepted and the foreclosure case against me has been dismissed.

Real Professional
Ed Herman is an Attorney who truly understands how the legal system works. That's what has impressed me the most. Our case was both complicated and detailed. His background in real estate helped greatly. Mr. Herman listens to your problem, then decides the best way to tackle the problem. I believe Attorney Herman handled my case better then I even expected. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Phenomenal attorney
My siblings and I inherited our family home which had a host of problems. In trying to sell the house we ran into multiple issues including title issues, land contract issues and buyer/title company issues. Every time we would get through one problem, another one would surface. I met Ed through work and he guided us through all of these problems to a final selling of the house. That weight is finally lifted from our shoulders and I have Ed to thank for that.

Just What I Needed
I was recommended Edward by another attorney, who is a childhood friend of mine because I was considering walking away from a rental property that I am way upside down on. I called and Edward answered the phone. He was kind enough to speak with me for about 15-20 minutes over the phone and explained what my options would be. He was very knowledgeable and gave me some very good advice that led me to calculate my own plan that would allow me to pay off the rental in 7-10 years rather than walk away and deal with the consequences. He said "do the math and figure out what makes the most sense". He was exactly what I needed, which was someone to tell what the consequences would be and essentially "talked me off the edge". If I were in a situation where I could not afford the property, Edward would be hired!!
