When someone is joining the law field, they look forward to being a successful lawyer or attorney. It feels good to be a renowned attorney who influences positive outcomes in their cases. However, some people may not know why one may leave a career they had worked hard to get. This has happened to some reputable career people like Jeff Herman. Despite being a respected commercial lawyer for some time, Jeff changed his career to meet a need he could not ignore. When two parents approached Jeff with some serious legal cases on sexual abuse, he could not believe what he heard from them.
The parents narrated to Jeff how a pedophile had sexually abused their autistic child. What irked him most is seeing how the parents struggled to get justice in vain. Jeff wondered how such an abominable act could have happened in an autistic preschool. A volunteer called Dan had abused a child sexually, and the matter had not been taken with the weight it deserved. Jeff didn’t understand how such a person could be free even after being convicted. This caused Jeff Herman to change his mind and study sexual abuse law.
With all bad records in California, Jeff couldn’t comprehend how the volunteer escaped to Florida and stayed safe. He even found it more irritating when he learned that more than 20 children in the same school had silently suffered the same detestable act. He made up his mind to venture into the sexual abuse law industry and represent his clients diligently. His main focus was to see justice taking the due course. Jeff Herman is always busy helping the defiled children file their cases, and also understand what the law says about sexual abuse cases.
Jeff says although such cases have occurred to many children in different places, he looked forward to eliminating them. He notes that many people don’t bother pursuing their sexual abuse cases since they don’t have a legal voice passionate about their feelings and rights. The Arizona University alumnus says all the legal skills and knowledge he has acquired are meant to benefit those who go through such traumatic experiences especially in their childhood. Jeff Herman didn’t leave his career as a commercial lawyer due to financial difficulties, but due to his passion for eliminating sexual abuse injustices.
