About me





please DO use my office as a valuable information resource. I will help as much as I can.  My mission in life is to meet as many people as possible and make a difference for the better. I was a licensed social worker before becoming an attorney. I know what many people are going through when they call a lawyer. I care about my client's well-being and happiness and I wish everyone the best they can get in life.

  • Jared Justice

    I have know Mr. Herron for about three years now. I have seen him practice in court first hand. He handles his client's cases vigorously and always with the client's best interests at heart. He has also given me very helpful advice over the years; the type of advice that can only be learned by experience. I am happy to endorse Mr. Herron as an excellent lawyer and a true asset to the legal community.
