David Herman, An attorney you can put your trust in
David Herman represented me in a personal injury case. Throughout the entire duration of the case, I was educated in what would transpire and kept informed and up to date on what was going on. David was very pleasant and patient with my many questions. He and his supportive staff always kept communications open and never left me in the dark. After the case ended, he offered his legal expertise any time that I might need advise in the future. If I ever need a personal injury attorney in the future (and I hope I don't), He would definitely be the one that I would call and recommend him highly to anyone in need of an attorney.

VERY GOOD LAWYER , WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Although my insurance company was a pain to deal with and unrespondsive Mr. Herman and Amanda were amazing keeping me posted and updated on the events of the case as well as advising me. I would use him again if the need where to arise.

Excellent, Professional Attorney
Mr. Herman handled my car accident case. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was available for consultation and always answered all of my questions. I could tell my case was important to him and it showed in the outcome of my case. I would definitely recommend him others.

Very satisfied!
I had hit a dead end with the insurance company representing the gentleman who rear ended me. I felt overwhelmed and not sure what to do. Mr. Herman guided me through the process of filing a claim with the courts. He kept me updated and prepared for each step and offered advice that I felt was genuine. His concern for a satisfactory outcome was felt throughout the entire process. I signed the final papers today and can say that I am very satisfied with the effort he and his firm put into my case. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Excellent Experience
Working with David in my car accident case was a great experience. He prepared me for each step of the process and kept me informed throughout. David answered each of my questions about the case, the deposition, and the settlement in a timely and knowledgeable manner. I'm grateful to have him as my lawyer, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a professional lawyer.

Represented me in an automobile injury case
David was extremely knowledgeable and aware of the conditions surrounding my specific automobile personal injury case. He was diligent in his preperation of my case, and realistic in his approach of reaching a fair conclusion. My case had several difficult circumstances, a defendant with zero equity, a judge with an abbreviated agenda and in inconclusive police review of the car accident. Given all these difficult variables. David spent many hours of preperation and review with me and the defendant's counsel, as well as being in constant communication with me, to bring this matter to the best possible conclusion. David reached a settlement with the defendant's insurance company to satisfy my medical expenses as well as capturing an amount for my personal anguish. David went above and beyond and negotiated with my medical providers to adjust my medical expenses. Perhaps this is what would be expected from counsel, however, David never once implied that his ability was limited due to the above mentioned case conditions, always anticipating that he would reach the best possible outcome. It is my opinion and strong belief that David thrived with this challenge and felt compassionate in my injury case. I would trust David Herman with any future personal injury legal matter either I or any family member might incure.

David Herman only acts in his own best interests.
David coerced me into taking a deal,under false pretenses that I argued against for several weeks because I knew it was financially not in my best interest. In hindsight I would rather have represented myself or had my seven-year-old represent me in court
