Jeff Herman: The Crusader for Victims of Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is a topic that no one wants to talk about but needs to be confronted. Victims of sexual abuse often suffer through the ordeal alone. Most are afraid and ashamed to talk about it. Keeping severe trauma bottled up makes living life difficult. One man felt the pain of these victims and decided to be the change the world needed.

Jeff Herman dedicates his life to standing up for victims of sexual abuse. At one point, he was searching for meaning in his life. That search led him to advocate for sexual abuse victims. Over a twenty year career, Mr. Herman has represented at least a thousand clients. He works to give victims a voice allowing them to be heard and begin their healing process.

His dedication and hard work have led him to an illustrious career in law, becoming nationally known as the best in his niche. Mr. Herman's claim to fame came when he brought the scandal of the Archdiocese of Miami and Denver to light. Throughout his career, Mr. Herman has brought down a number of high powered predators and the individuals that covered for them.

Herman is not alone in his quest to advocate for sexual abuse victims. In New York, people are actively working to get the Child Victims Act passed into law. Passing the Child Victims Act would eradicate the statue of limitations on sexual abuse cases. This would be a big win in the fight against bringing down sexual predators.

The Child Victims act would open up new doors allowing victims ample time to come forward. Victims can keep their abuse secret for years before gaining the courage to tell someone. This act is one step towards acknowledging that imposing a five-year time limit is not helping victims get the justice they deserve.

Sexual abuse continues to be a touchy subject and will be for the foreseeable future. Thankfully, there are people courageous enough to speak out and stand up for victims of sexual abuse.
