This is just one example of how attorneys can really set themselves apart from the competition by leveraging video in their online marketing efforts.
Watch this video about Miami, Florida attorney Jeff Herman (and his law firm, Herman, Mermelstein, and Horowitz) and see how he absolutely relates to victims of sexual abuse. Why would anyone watching this go anywhere else?
MIAMI, FLORIDA ATTORNEY JEFF HERMAN HAS A REPUTATION OF BEING A TIRELESS WORKER, A TENACIOUS LAWYER, AND WHEN IT COMES TO REPRESENTING VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY, A MAN ON A MISSION.
Our practice is all about helping victims.
I represent adult survivors who were sexually abused as children. I represent kids, who families come to me, that were recently abused but in every case I'm representing somebody who was sexually abused."
HE HAS HANDLED HIGH PROFILE SEXUAL ABUSE CASES ON A CONTINGENCY FEE BASIS FROM MIAMI, TO NEW YORK AND COLORADO, AND MANY STATES IN BETWEEN SINCE THE LATE 90'S.
Sex abuse happens everywhere and our focus is just representing victims of sexual abuse and we do that wherever we need to.
In one of my cases the predator had actually fled the United States. I tracked him down and found him in Asia and ultimately he was brought back to this country and now sits in jail.
WHETHER ITS CASES INVOLVING CLERGY ABUSE, SCHOOLS, DAY CARE CENTERS, RESIDENTIAL FACILITIES OR THE BOY SCOUTS, JEFF HAS JUST ABOUT SEEN IT ALL.
Pediphiles are going to go to places where kids congregate, so where you find kids, you have to look out for the predators. And that's where we see our cases.
PRIOR TO DEVOTING 100 PERCENT OF HIS PRACTICE TO SEX ABUSE CASES, JEFF WAS A COMMERCIAL LITIGATOR. BUT HE SAYS, SOMETHING WAS MISSING. THAT'S NOT THE CASE NOW.
When I first got involved in these cases, it was so important to the families and to the victims.
As I worked with these families it really hit home for me. And I realized that i was making a difference and that in so many cases, it changed lives.
It was very rewarding on many levels and it really became a passion for me. It became really a calling for me and I have devoted my career to this now because it's important.
IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT FOR JEFF AND THE OTHER ATTORNEYS AT HERMAN, MERMELSTEIN, AND HOROWITZ, TO NOT ONLY SEEK JUSTICE FOR THEIR CLIENTS, BUT TO HELP THE VICTIMS HEAL.
What happens for that victim, it's like there's this power or a control that's taken from them.
What I can do is help them to become empowered, to take that control back in their life, and through that they'll begin to heal.
AS A FATHER OF FOUR, JEFF UNDERSTANDS HOW PRECIOUS CHILDREN ARE, AND HOW IT'S EVERY PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE TO HAVE SOMETHING OF THIS MAGNITUDE HAPPEN TO ANY INNOCENT CHILD.
THAT'S WHY HE HAS STARTED HIS OWN LABOR OF LOVE, THE SAVER FOUNDATION, AND HAS BECOME A CHILD ADVOCATE IN HIS COMMUNITY.
I speak to parent groups and try to talk to them about how to protect their children.
IT IS CLEAR IN HIS VOICE, IN HIS EYES, AND IN HIS LIFE AT WORK AND HERE AT HIS BOCA RATON HOME, THAT JEFF IS PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT HE DOES FOR A LIVING.
IT'S A JOB WHERE THE PAYOFF IS ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN JUST THE FINANCIAL RETURN OF WINNING IN THE COURTROOM. I get emails and phone calls and letters from old clients all the time just to touch base to say thank you and talk to me about how well they are doing.
And to hear from them years later, and it's a success story, and to tell me about how great everything's going and to thank me for being a small part of that, that's it. That's everything.
