Client Testimonials

Athena Herman is a powerhouse. She listens with empathy. She offers ideas based on her experience, deep knowledge of case law, and keen ability to predict human behavior. She fights for the underdog, and is relentless in the pursuit of justice for her clients. My case was unique, so Athena referred me to high integrity legal experts who would best fit me personally, as well as help me meet my goal to collaborate quickly. I interviewed several attorneys and found a perfect match. Even though she wasn’t on my payroll, Athena continued to make herself available to answer my questions. As a professional woman and mother, I will continue to reach out to Athena Herman for a strong shoulder, good data, strategic thinking, sound legal advice, and fierce advocacy. She gave me a voice when I could not speak for myself, and she helped shine a light on the best path to resolution for my family.

– Jennifer White, November 2018

Athena believed in me and gave me a voice when I felt small.  Knowing she was in my corner gave me the courage to stand strong against a big company.  Before Athena, it was easy to feel invisible, but she made me feel like I matter and that I have a voice that deserves to be heard. She is an amazing lawyer, who won almost all the legal fights we had over years in federal court.    Any employee facing a large employer would be lucky to have Athena fighting for them. I will be eternally grateful that she fought for me

– Mayorie “Maggie” Rosas, July 2020

When I presented my case to Athena, she was straightforward and honest with me. In my experience there are a lot of attorneys that look at their clients merely as a pay check but Athena never made me feel like my feelings or what happened to me did not matter to her. She goes above and beyond to make sure you understand the law which relates to your case. My case is very complex but that did not stop her from taking it on and making me feel like there is still hope even when I felt as if there was no way anyone would take on my past employer, but Athena did!
