Jeff Herman has seen it all in his 20 years as an advocate for rape, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation victims. He’s been a sex crimes lawyer ever since he was referred to a young mother 20 years ago when he was a commercial litigator. Her story absolutely horrified him and motivated him to enter the field.
She told him of her autistic child that had been raped at school. This gave him unbelievable focus as he fought for her and her child’s rights. It also inspired him to found Herman Law Group out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
His law firm has been hard at work to expose any sort of sex abuse. They are famous for exposing the sex abuse taking place at the Archdiocese of Miami. They’ve also outed sexual abusers at schools and churches around the country. And they are one of the best law firms in the country at giving the survivors of sexual crimes a voice.

That can be a difficult thing with our criminal justice system. Oftentimes, sex crime prosecution becomes incredibly painful for survivors. Defense lawyers often turn the tables to put the survivor on trial. They do this by attacking their character in order to make their words less impactful in court.
That’s why Jeff Herman is proud to act as the voice for these victims. He says that their horrible stories give him focus and drive as well as empathy. It’s much more rewarding work than commercial litigation, he says.
The sex crimes lawyer would like to focus more time on his educational outreach. Jeff Herman believes through his educational outreach he can diminish the number of sexual crimes committed in the United States. He understands the particularly graphic consequences of sex crimes and that’s why he thinks prevention is incredibly important.
Jeff Herman says that he is entirely fulfilled by his professional choices and that his motivation for helping the survivors of sex crimes makes it difficult to balance his work with his personal life. The stories he hears every day also wears on him but he continues to fight to give survivors a voice.
