Because You Deserve to Have a Reputable Attorney
It is no secret that Florida has some of the toughest criminal sentencing and penalties in the nation. Under the Florida Constitution, a convicted felon cannot vote, hold public office, possess a firearm, or serve on a jury until their civil rights have been restored. Those who are convicted of qualifying sex offenses have to register as sex offenders for life, and those who are convicted of DUI can have their driver’s license revoked for years – this is only the tip of the iceberg.
With a background as a former prosecutor, Attorney Ron D. Herman has valuable insight into the minds of law enforcement and prosecutors and he is intimately familiar with the causes of a wrongful conviction. His passion for pursuing unmatched results for his clients is evidenced by his numerous professional achievements, some of which include:
- Selected to Florida’s Super Lawyers®
- AV Preeminent® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®
- Over 150 jury trials handled
- Featured on Channel 5, Fox News, and in the Palm Beach Post

As DNA exonerations have increased across the nation in recent years, these wrongful convictions have revealed some highly disturbing trends in the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, these cases have made it clear that our criminal justice system is broken and how critical it is that defendants be represented by highly knowledgeable legal counsel.
At Herman Law, P.A., we know that those exonerated by DNA testing are not the only people who have been wrongfully convicted in recent decades, and for every case that is exonerated through DNA, hundreds of others are not. The most common causes of wrongful convictions include:
- Eyewitness misidentification
- False confessions
- Government misconduct
- Informants or snitches, sometimes even from prison
- Poor legal representation
- Improper or invalidated forensic science
The vast resources of the government can be stacked against a defendant and matters only worsen when a defendant is represented by an ineffective, incompetent, or overburdened defense attorney.
Why settle for second best?
When your future is hanging by a thread, why settle for second best? Attorney Herman is intimately familiar with the U.S. and Florida Constitutions and works vigorously to defend his clients’ rights. To illustrate, under the Florida Constitution, defendants have a right to due process of the law, the right to be secure in their persons and their houses, and the right to a trial by jury.
