Among the heinous acts that anyone can do to another person are the acts of sexual abuse and rape. This is things that one never forgets. It is not easy to accept the tragedy and move on. Jeff Herman is committed to helping the brave children, women, and men recover from this by ensuring the people involved in the acts are punished.
Jeff Herman works at his law firm: Herman Law. They have investigators who help in breaking down every detail to get to know exactly what happened during the fateful event. He explains that in this line of work, they do not use any assumptions, they have to have real facts.
Jeff Herman says that his first case of the rape case was a referral when he was a commercial litigator. The story moved him because it involved a woman whose son had been sexually abused in pre-school. He could not understand how such an awful thing could happen to a child. Later, after a thorough investigation, they found out that the school had a pedophile. After this incident, he realized that this is what he wanted to do all his life.
Jeff Herman has now been in the field for more than two decades. During this time, he has been able to represent more than 1000 brave children, women, and men. The many years in the field has helped him in very many aspects. He explains that the victims of such cases find it hard to tell what happened. Over the years, Jeff Herman has learned better ways to interview the victims without making them feel like they have lost their dignity.
Herman says that the cases can be very many and be demanding at the same time. He doesn’t want his client clinging on the issue for long. He, therefore, draws visualization boards with the timelines to complete the tasks.
Herman’s advice to his younger self is to be patient. He explains that sometimes when you are young, you are anxious the whole time, you do not even get time to enjoy the process. Enjoying your journey to the top is essential.
