Herman Legal Group was founded by Cleveland, Ohio native Richard Herman in 1995. Richard originally practiced international business law, but through personal experiences came to realize the immense legal needs immigrants have trying to prosper not only in their businesses but in their personal lives as well. Since then, Richard, a top immigration attorney, and his team have developed nearly 20 years’ worth of experience helping immigrants thrive.

Locally in Cleveland, Richard has helped strengthen the immigrant community and continues to root for the underdog.

Herman Legal Group has grown to have immigration law offices in multiple locations in Ohio and Michigan, with the ability to service clients throughout the U.S. and abroad.
