Excellent Lawyer. Saved my Life.
I got caught up in the criminal justice system earlier this year and never having experienced it before I was a neurotic mess. Mr. Herrmann basically hand-held me through the entire process, explaining what to expect and explaining the different options for my case. I believe 100% that I would be dead or in prison today if it wasn't for him.
