He is the champion who fights for his clients and the managing partner and founder of Herman Law. He is affected by the civil lawsuit statute of limitations because it is limited to five years after the crime has been committed. Unless the person belongs to institutions including schools or churches they only have one year to sue. The five year window is only applicable for criminal cases.
