-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Please give me as much detail as possible.

I need a bit more information please. I am going off line shortly and will be on and off all day (experts on here are also practising lawyers) but will be back later (on and off) today when I will deal further once I have your reply.

Mr. Herman is helping a client who passesd away and selected me to help donate her

inheritance to charities which I will be compensated for my work. Sounds like a scam

and need to find out if this Law firm is registrated?

Expert:  Thomas replied 4 years ago.
HiMy Colleague simply asked for further information. For future reference please don't opt an expert out for this, it means they can't answer the question. There is no law firm by that name registered with the Law Society. If they practised in England and Wales they must be registered here and they are not. If they purport to be a law firm in England and Wales then they are not and could be subject to criminal charges.If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my time. If you do not click accept your money stays with the site and I do not receive any credit for the time I have taken to answer your question. You will not be charged any further money for clicking accept. Kind regards,Tom

Tom,

 

Thanks for your answer and time. I have a website for that law firm and it looks really

legit? I know you stated that firm is not registered but can they still post a website

under that name for to gain consumer business? Please see if you can look up their

website on Google and let me know if it is legit?

 

Thank you,

 

Gary

Hi Gary,


I assume this to be the website:-

http://www.jerryhermanlaw.com/

 

They appear to be an American firm, all the literature on their attorneys seems to largely relate to the US and I cannot see that any of the solicitors are registered as UK practising lawyers, which they shoudl be.

 

There is nothing preventing a US firm using a UK address but they/their solicitors should be registered with the law society to practise in the UK so I would make enquiries directly with them to explain the basis of their practice in the UK.
