Speaker Information
Jeff Herman is a nationally recognized attorney and advocate for victims of sexual abuse, devoting 100% of his practice to the cause.

Driven by his commitment to break the silence on child sexual abuse, Jeff Herman has dedicated his career to exposing sexual predators and the institutions that protect them.

The trailblazing attorney is noted for exposing the clergy sexual abuse scandal in the Archdiocese of Miami and in dioceses around the country. In 2011, he won a landmark $100 million verdict on behalf of a client who was sexually abused by a priest. Recently, Herman made national headlines for representing multiple men in sexual abuse lawsuits against former Elmo puppeteer, Kevin Clash.

Jeff has been recognized for his unique child forensic interviewing technique and he trains professionals from various child welfare organizations on how to help sexually abuse victims heal through disclosure.
