Our firm was founded by brothers David and Harry Herman in 1942. David and Harry were born at the turn of the twentieth century to immigrant parents in the Irish Channel of New Orleans. Their personal injury practice quickly took on the tough and gritty characteristics of their immigrant upbringing. For over 70 years, under the leadership of three generations of Hermans, our firm has represented families devastated by a personal injury caused by the negligence of others.
We know that families come to us because a tragic event has changed their lives. Most families come to us wounded and weary. We understand that they depend upon us to aggressively pursue justice on their behalf. We consider this to be a sacred trust.
The only recourse that injury victims have against profit motivated corporations is the court system. A trial lawyer must be willing and able to push a case to trial in order to maximize the client’s recovery. Corporate defendants employ armies of attorneys to delay the process and frustrate injured families. Our lawyers take on the biggest corporations and try the toughest cases. Every case is prepared as if it will eventually be tried so as to maximize every client’s recovery.
Our attorneys are proud to have a full-bodied understanding of the law that encompasses injury caused by the following:
In addition to fighting for individual victims, our firm also handles mass tort cases commonly referred to as class actions. Our lawyers play important roles in shaping the outcome of class action lawsuits across the country.
