Mike, I would like to thank you for all you have done for me and my family over the past 25 plus years. I don’t think I would have made it through the whole special permitting process without your help. You made what seemed to be a very daunting task look easy. Without your guidance through the permitting process, Town Center Market would not exist today. Your knowledge in many aspects of business has been a great help, and we continue to lean on you as our business grows. I feel much better now that you have implemented an alcohol sales policy for my employees, to go along with the employee code of conduct that you drafted as well. These things that you make sure to bring to my attention are instrumental in ensuring that my business will be around for another 25 years! I appreciate you lending an ear just as a friend on occasion as well. With you, it is not always just about business.
Michael Herman is an excellent attorney. I have brought legal issues to him on several occasions. He has always been knowledgeable about business law. Like me, he is a business owner, and he evaluates legal issues from that perspective, providing counsel that is straightforward and timely. As a businessman, I don’t have time to waste when making critical decisions. It is so important to be able to have Mike and his firm available to us. When I previously sold a business, he was the first person I thought of to draw up the sales contract. I would use him anytime I have a legal issue related to my personal or professional affairs.
I’ve been in business for over 30 years and thankfully have not found myself in the courtroom very often. I had a breach of contract matter arise and was in need of legal help. A long-time friend and client of the firm referred me to Michael Herman. I called Michael and explained my case. He settled the matter quickly and efficiently. His rates were more than fair and I would highly recommend him. He treats his clients like friends and that is a welcome change.
Mike took charge of my family’s case with thoroughness and zeal from day one. He advised us to be open to a settlement to avoid the time and expense of a trial, but never shied from going to court if necessary for a fair resolution. He kept us updated every step along the way, and left nothing to chance. His personal contacts among his former State’s Attorney colleagues proved invaluable in winning our case.
We’d been in the family-run business of property management for 31 years and had never needed an attorney until that one day when we NEEDED an attorney! We suddenly were facing a difficult hurdle we could not clear. Michael Herman was able to cut through the haze and guide us smoothly to a mutually agreeable conclusion that took us where we wanted to be and where we needed to be. He is skillful, smart and savvy.
I want to write a quick note of thanks to Michael Herman, Esq. and his team. I was in a car accident in July of 2014 which was deemed the other driver’s fault. While it was not a major accident in terms of property damage, I nevertheless sustained significant injuries that required extensive rehab, the cost of which exceeded what my insurance company would pay. Once the funds from the Personal Injury Protection on my policy ran out, I was denied medical services. This is when Michael D. Herman, Esq. & Associates stepped in to help. They immediately worked with my medical providers so I was able to continue with my treatments. Once I was released from care, the firm worked tirelessly with the insurance company of the at-fault driver to achieve a settlement. The insurance company kept low-balling their offers, which initially did not cover all of my out-of-pocket expenses, and later just barely covered them.
When it was clear the insurance company was not going to make a reasonable settlement offer, Michael Herman had no hesitation in filing a lawsuit. Once this happened, the court ordered an Alternative Dispute Resolution session prior to the trial. Michael Herman was an expert negotiator in those proceedings and I was very pleased with the final outcome. I got all my medical bills paid, as well as a little extra!
Their communication was always on time, and they responded immediately to any questions, concerns, etc.
I would highly recommend Michael D. Herman, Esq. & Associates for any of your legal needs!

Michael and his staff were at the tip of the spear as they fought to obtain all the necessary funds to cover my expenses, plus compensation for my pain and suffering. Michael D. Herman Esq. & Associates stands highly favored within my family and we recommend them to anyone who wants honest results.
Shortly after the New Year of 2014, my case of discrimination against a local school system was like a small boat in the middle of a turbulent sea. Various forms of intimidation had forced my original lawyer to abandon my case. I felt as though I was drifting about without an oar, with hope dwindling.
My weeks of enduring rain clouds of frustration and and discontent were soon ended when Michael D. Herman came to my rescue. He answered my call when no one else would and took my case even though the time for preparation was limited.
This benevolent and compassionate man with an incredible legal mind laid out a plan of action to “get back in the game” at a time when the Goliath school system was about to destroy “Little David.” When my case went to trial, Mr. Herman and I walked into the court room prepared and confident. After his brilliant performance in the Circuit Court of Maryland, we earned a victory, four days after we went to trial, thus winning my discrimination case against the school system.
Attorney Michael Herman goes against the odds while representing those who have no other alternatives and limited resources. This incredible human being has done these acts of kindness and courage time after time in his career as a lawyer.
This world needs more benevolent people like Mike Herman who continue to leave an indelible imprint on the fabric of our society.
With profound love and respect,
I have been a client of Michael D. Herman, Esq. & Associates for several matters in the past few years and so have other family members of mine. Personal injury, estate planning, family law, plus land use matters have all flowed through their office. The firm has a lot of scope and experience under one roof. One thing I particularly like is the vigorous way the attorneys have worked on our behalf to get us results. It is a firm that while relatively modest in size, truly packs a wallop in terms of hard work and big results. My interactions with the staff have been warm and caring with a genuine community based feel to things.
I’m no stranger to lawyers and legal processes. I have certainly worked with lawyers and law firms that worked overly hard to impress me with their connections, power, intellect and corporate connections as though it is all about them.
I have always felt that with Michael D. Herman, Esq. & Associates, it is about me and my needs. That’s huge! Their firm has most of the attributes of a much larger firm but with the operating style of a very accessible and sympatico resource for regular folks, like me. I think they are very concerned about achieving fairness and justice for their clients for fair a reasonable fees. The have “had my back” for years and I feel they are my allies that help level the playing field for me in world where unexpected and complex legal problems abound — and I’m generally up against much more moneyed and empowered adversaries. I’ve always felt secure in their good hands and very zealously represented.
I just wanted to say it was a complete pleasure working with Attorney Holly Devaser. Holly was professional, well informed, articulate, and provided helpful advise regarding my Will and Advanced Directive. She was attentive to my concerns and I was impressed with her in-depth knowledge of the law. I look forward to working with your law firm and in particular with Ms. Devaser in the future.
