  • Lyle Brian Masnikoff

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Herman for 14 years. I originally worked against him in workers compensation cases. I have also used him as a mediator to help settle workers' compensation cases. I have also referred many clients to him to resolve outstanding their medical bills and to resolve their credit issues. Mr. Herman knows the law extremely well. He is easy to get in touch with. He cares about his clients and tries to get them the best results.

  • Seth Alden Kreiner

    I endorse Paul. I had the chance to work with Paul and I found Paul to not only be quite knowledgeable, but he is well respected, and more importantly to his clients' benefit, he is able to cut to the chase and get to the heart of the matter quickly and efficiently. He is able to dissect the case, and work professionally yet still represent all of his clients zealously. I highly endorse Paul in his areas of specialization.
