Personal Injuries

We provide legal representation to those suffering either physical or psychological injuries as a result of negligence or wrongdoing of another person or entity.  Such instances may include, but are not limited to automobile accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, birth injuries, construction accidents and animal bites.

If you were injured in an accident through no fault of your own, we can help.  We understand that serious injuries can have a lifelong personal and financial impact on both you and your family.  When accidents are caused as the result of someone else’s negligence, the responsible party may be held financially liable.  We will work tirelessly to get you the settlement you deserve.   Due to a statute of limitations, you have a limited period of time to file a claim for your injuries.  For that reason, it is in your best interest to speak with us as soon as possible after an accident.  We offer a free initial phone consultation and would be happy to answer all of your questions.  No “up-front” fees are required, and you owe us nothing unless we recover money on your behalf.
Real Estate Transactions

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, the Law Office of Alan Scott Herman can help make your transaction easier.  During this process, several parties may be involved including the buyer, the seller, their respective attorneys and a lender.  This can make the closing process much more complex.  Further, the laws surrounding problems that can arise during the purchase or sale of residential real estate are complicated.  Let us help from start to finish.  We will review your Purchase/Sale Agreements, work directly with your realtor and lender, and close on your property in a timely manner.

We can also help with your refinance, lease agreement or commercial real estate needs.
Divorce and Family Law

Getting divorced or having family issues is challenging in many ways.  We understand that you may be feeling overwhelmed by all the questions you must answer and the decision you must make.  We can guide you through the process of filing for divorce, reaching a fair and equitable agreement concerning your financial and/or property issues, and make custody decisions that are in the best interest of your children and family. 

We can also handle your issues concerning custody, visitation and child support modifications and contempt proceedings.
Workers’ Compensation

Have you or a loved one suffered an injury at work? Was a family member killed in a work-related accident?  When a work-related injury threatens your livelihood, you need an experienced workers compensation attorney. A work-related injury can cause serious setbacks.  Due to your injuries, you will most likely have concerns about your medical treatment and lost income.  We can help you to receive medical treatment, secure lost time, and get you the compensation benefits you deserve.  The workers compensation system is extremely complicated, and the insurance company will no doubt work to lessen the compensation you may be entitled to.  The employer or insurance company may deny your claim for lost wages, pressure you to return to work before you are physically able, discourage you from seeing a new doctor or refuse to accept liability for your injury.  The process can be long and frustrating.  We have over 25 years of experience fighting for your benefit.  The sooner you call us, the sooner we can help.  No out-of-pocket fees are required, and we collect a percentage of monies received through your settlement or award.

Going through the probate process after someone you love has passed away will no doubt be upsetting and complicated.  During this time of emotional turmoil, it is important to find an attorney you can trust.   If you are not familiar with Probate practices, handling this task can be daunting. As probate attorneys, we can alleviate some of that burden by completing the necessary legal documents for the estate and filing them in a timely manner with the Probate Court.    The more assets that are involved, the more important it will be to hire a probate attorney who can audit the estate and handle the details for you.  When you schedule an appointment with us, you are taking the first step toward a smooth resolution. 
We also handle other probate issues including wills, living wills, powers of attorney, and guardianship.
