About Us

When we embarked on HermizLaw, our goal was to revolutionize the way everyday people received legal services. We started from scratch and built this firm with the client in mind.  Everything we do stems from that focus. 

It’s simply not enough to say we’re different; it just wouldn’t do us any justice.  To learn what we’re all about, check out the foundational elements that highlight the essence of a HermizLaw attorney.

 

Only Excellence Will Do

Excellence [ek-suh-luhns] (noun): 
1) The state of being outstanding or extremely good. 
2) The quality of excelling or being exceptionally good that so surpasses normal standards; extreme greatness; superiority
3) An action, characteristic, feature, etc, in which a person excels

It’s pretty self-explanatory.  We promise all this and more.

 

Client Focused

Without you, there is no us.  That’s why we have built HermizLaw on the founding principle that every client relationship is like a partnership.  We work together in an environment built on respect, trust and faith with open lines of communication and a free flow of ideas.  From the moment we meet until the point we close your case, every step has been formulated with you, the client, in mind.  We are committed to updating you frequently so that you will always know what stage your file is in, what to expect and everything in between.  Our mission is to deliver an experience that you will not find anywhere else.  We promise you won’t be disappointed.



We’re There With You, From A to Z

The legal system is complicated, stressful and hard to figure out.  You shouldn’t have to deal with any part of it alone.  At HermizLaw, we take pride in lessening the load off your shoulders and giving you the peace of mind you need to deal with the other things going on in your life.  Our attorneys are prepared to handle all aspects of your case so that you don’t have to.  But, just because are committed to take on your case doesn’t mean we exclude you from the process.  You will never feel like you are out of the loop.  We will work together with you, from A to Z to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.



We ALWAYS Return Phone Calls

All phone calls are returned within 24-hours.

 

Great People

A firm is only as good as its people: excellent people deliver excellent results.  It just so happens that people are our business.  Our people are passionate about delivering quality service, outstanding legal representation and achieving client satisfaction, along with everything in between.  At HermizLaw, everyone — from the support staff to the HermizLaw attorney — is committed to this standard.  We hand-pick our people to ensure you will like them as much as we like them.



Culture Driven

People are our business.  Everything we do relies on the cooperation of people. We know that you reap what you sow, and therefore are committed to creating the kind of environment that is conducive to excellent results.  At HermizLaw, we work together in a culture of mutual respect where we allow individuality to shine through and flourish.  Instead of asking our people to conform to one look or idea, we embrace the diversity in our people, because those differences will mean excellence over mediocrity.

Highly recommended attorney!
Madana has been my attorney for the last several years and I can’t say enough about her and her staff. She came highly recommended and she’s lived up to her reputation. She is smart, thoughtful, and always thinking outside the box. She answers calls and text messages quickly, which I really appreciate. She helps you see both sides of an argument and gives really good advice to help make the best choice. I’ve referred her to two other people and they’ve had the same experience with her. She’s my go to attorney for anything I need.

Amazing and Caring Lawyer
Madana is the epitome of how a lawyer should be when working with a client. I received a speeding ticket (first) and was so nervous and scared. I contacted Madana and she immediately put my mind at ease. She was very quick to respond to me and took care of everything. I knew I could trust her. Madana is intelligent and very knowledgeable. Madana reduced it to an impeding traffic (0 points). She literally made the process so simple considering my busy work schedule. Madana updated me on everything in a timely manner (immediately after the hearing) and explained what I needed to do in detail after. I cannot thank her enough. She is a confident lawyer who also exudes empathy. I am so happy that I put my trust into her. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Madana to all of my family and friends in the event that they should need a lawyer - she is amazing and truly caring.

You need to have her on your side
Madona is the best in the game. I had two tickets for 16-20 over speeding and no insurance that she just took care of and got me zero points. She did the same thing for me last year for another speeding ticket. I send everyone to her.

Professional, Awesome and Caring Attorney !!
Madana is truly a blessing to her clients. Madana is very knowledgeable, professional, caring, effective and truly sets your mind and heart at ease, during the difficult times and emotions that divorce brings. Madana was always timely in all correspondence and follow-up. Any time I had any sort of question(s), she always responded quickly and provided detail, so that my mind and heart was at ease. I had a truly difficult and long divorce case. Madana promised me that she would make sure that myself and my children were taken care of at the end of the process. Madana kept her promise and more. I can't say enough good things about her!

Can’t say enough good things
I met with Madana after reading so many great reviews, which is why I’m taking the time to write one now. I know first hand how important it is that the person you choose to guide you through one of the most anxiety-ridden times of your life is someone that is smart, professional, honest and that you trust will have your best interests at heart. After being married for 27 years and building a life together with someone, taking it apart was difficult but I felt so reassured having Madana there. We discussed pros and cons of every step we made and she helped explain everything to the point where I actually understood the law and what I was entitled to and what the risks were. I had friends who had gone through divorces and I remembered hearing their struggles with their attorneys and I honestly never felt that with Madana. She answered my calls and emails promptly and addressed my concerns right away. The best thing about her was that she was very straightforward and knowledgeable- she didn’t sugar coat things just to make me feel better. She told me the truth and told me how things were from a rational stand point. She kept me grounded and focused on the important things.

Professional, comforting and intelligent!
I came to Madana at one of the worst times in my life. My marriage had failed. When I initially met with her for a consultation. She was so comforting and supportive. I think I cried like a baby in her office and I felt like I had known her forever. In addition, she was so knowledgeable and answered all my questions. She first recommended a marriage counselor. I truly respected and admired that. It was so honest. When counseling didn't work for us, I came back to her and was ready to file. She explained everything to me so well and made sure to cross all the t's and dot the i's that I left feeling so confident and loved having her on my side. I would recommend her to anyone. She makes a difficult decision a lot easier when you know to leave everything in her hands and trust her. It gave me such peaceful state of mind.

HIGHLY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EMPATHIC
First off, Madana assisted me with understanding the laws of divorce in Michigan. When I was in a state of panic while meeting with her, she demonstrated her people skills by reflecting the truth about my situation, helping me to calm myself. As a fellow professional, I must say that I would have thought she was a peer in my social work profession!!! Secondly, her easy going and non-judgmental manner, truomeantbthe world to me. Just as I believe the importance to ensure we're a good fit with a counselor / psychotherapist, it's as important to search for the right attorney. I encourage people to consult with attorney before you retain one. It may take meeting with multiple ones! And by doing so, it aids in finding a lawyer thatbyou just click with. Consequently, this is how I found Madana. The qualities I so needed in an attorney, were found with Madana. She is so knowledgeable in her field, practices not with her ego, but with her heart and her knowledge. Thank you so so much Madana, for ALL you've done for me. Your quick responsiveness to my questions helped me keep myself on track to stay in my logical mind. I won't hesitate to refer others to you who need a family law attorney. Which leads me to my last point. As a therapist, I don't claim to know all areas of treatment modalities and will refer others out to someone who specializes in an area of their need. When I was searching for an attorney, I knew the importance of finding a FAMILY LAW attorney. And I would encourage others to do the same. That IS their specialty. Madana has surpassed her expertise in family law. She's a wonderful wonderful person!!!! Thank you Madana!!!!! Again, despite this being one of the MOST challenging life events for me (divorce), you showed me the human side of yourself, as opposed to the ego side of self!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!

Fantastic!
Madana was absolutely fantastic with my divorce case. Divorce is never easy and comes with lots of questions. She took the time to answer all my questions and concerns and walk me through what to expect from start to finish. Some answers is cases are ones you do not necessarily want to hear, but her in depth answers outline why something may not work out the way you want, but have your best interest in hand. She is very quick to respond to questions/concerns via email, and help my hand through my divorce. I strongly recommend Madana if you are considering or going through a divorce. She took care of me and I know she will do the same for you!

Excellent Divorce lawyer!!
I am very much impressed on how she handled my case. She made it look very simple and walked me through it with ease. I am very much pleased to say that my case was closed in decent time like in 4months from Nov to March 2015 (much quicker than I ever thought). She did a very good job of keeping me posted with the updates time and then. I heard form my friends that lawyers wouldn't refund the money back once it is deposited. But she refunded me even though it's very little. I would still appreciate her for doing that. I highly recommend her for divorce process. Thank you Madana for handling my case.

Proud to have formed an allegiance with such strong representation
From the initial interview, throughout a complicated legal process, am more than impressed with her and her trustworthy, competent team. Will continue to 'rave' about the professional and courteous demeanor, of her and her staff.

Great Divorce Attorney!!!
As difficult as the divorce process is, I couldn’t have ask for a more of an experienced, educated, knowledgeable, and compassionate attorney than Madana. She did an excellent job representing the main issues and circumstances with the opposing counsel in order to settle the case in a timely manner (much quicker than I would have ever thought possible). She was incredibly sympathetic and understanding to my frustrations as the divorce process is extremely emotionally draining. I would recommend Madana to any person who has made the decision to proceed with a divorce. You will not be disappointed!! Thank you Madana!

My Attorney is Second to None!!!
In my experience, a bitter divorce is one of the most stressful and complex situations a person can go through. Initially, I made the mistake of thinking my divorce would be a smooth transition with a seemingly cooperative soon-to-be ex-wife...was I ever wrong! Things changed after finding Madana Hermiz. Through her knowledge, professionalism and timely responsiveness, a ton of stress and feelings of uncertainty were removed from my shoulders. Ms. Hermiz guided me through every step of the process. Thank you Madana for the great representation and council you provided me throughout this very long and stressful divorce. Your diligence and hard work were greatly appreciated!

Complex short sale with uncooperative ex husband
My case was a short sale but my ex husband was the problem as he didn't want to cooperate with the short sale. She was very professional and kept me informed as to what was happening. Offered suggestions as to alternate options for my situation. I would highly recommend her.
Posted by Fred | June 20, 2013
Excellent Attorney
After two long years of litigation and a bitter business partnership divorce, my opinion of Attorneys and the justice system in general were, lets just say less then favorable, and when another issue came up and had to hire a lawyer, I was referred to Madana by a friend, she was very professional in handling my case, took the time to explain my options, followed up with me and kept me informed and above all she showed care and passion, something not many attorneys are capable off! Thanks Madana in restoring my faith in our justice system, more lawyers should follow your footsteps in putting their clients rather then their pockets first.

Excellent job
I went to Madana for a real estate problem. After going through the issue, she put me on the right track in a different direction that worked out better for me in the long run. She was on top of everything right from the start. She kept us informed every step of the way. She did a great job for us

Impressive
I was charged with domestic violence. The first attorney I hired told me my chance of winning was 30:70. I was disillusioned. When I approached Madana, she listened to my story and told me the case was a winnable one, a case of he said she said. It turned out she was right. I obtained a no-guilty verdict. Madana helped me get my dignity back. She was a God sent to me. And she delivered. She prepared me very well for the trial. At the trial, her performance was awesome and flawless. She dealt a knock out to the prosecutor. It took the jury roughly ten minutes to reach a verdict. It was all in my favor. Thank you Madana, you are a consummate attorney.

Excellent representation!
Ms. Hermiz is a lifesaver. She helped me through my divorce and helped me get what I wanted. The divorce was hard as it is, but she made it a lot easier to get through. She is genuinely a good person and really cared about me.
Posted by Gibson | February 7, 2013
The best experience I've ever had. Such a great understanding of the law and the most personable lawyer.
Madana is what I like to call a fined tuned professional. She really went out of her way to make sure I had an elaborate understanding of my situations, rights, and realities. A real breath of fresh air is best way I can describe both of my experiences with Madana. Its hard to find a lawyer out there that you can trust is fighting for your best interest. She's pleasantly honest, smart, and very affable. I personally cant put a price tag on her services but she's definitely my best friend in the courtroom.

Great Experience
I have dealt with many attorneys in my lifetime, and I have usually walked away with a bitter experience. However, Madana was different. I needed to file for bankruptcy due to my financial health and her expertise, diligence and professionalism exceeded my expectations. She listened to my story, presented me with options, and advised me accordingly. What set her apart was her ability to break down what a bankruptcy was, the implications, and how it worked in easy to understand language. I would definitely use her again.

Excellent Service
The service and results achieved were excellent. My business' real estate was in default and needed to save it from foreclosure. In a nutshell, Madana was able to swoop in and restructure the mortgage put me in a very good place. I would highly recommend Madana to anyone with a complicated issue.
