Board Certified Bankruptcy Attorney

Bankruptcy Lawyer - Clearwater Florida

Who Is the Right Bankruptcy Lawyer for You?

I am Florida bankruptcy attorney Daniel J. Herman ESQ. My practice is focused on handling a range of bankruptcy matters for clients in and around the Clearwater area. I am certified by the American Board of Certification in bankruptcy, which renders me an exceptionally knowledgeable resource and advocate.

I pride myself on my creativity and my understanding of my clients' needs. Contact my office today to speak with me about the potential for your bankruptcy case. I believe I can be the right bankruptcy attorney for you.

I handle personal cases and business cases in Bankruptcy Code Chapters 7, 11 and 13. I work with real people and with fictitious persons -- such as corporations. Even in corporate cases there are real persons emotionally invested and subject to real consequences. It is a priority for me to provide an empathetic and non-judgmental refuge where my clients can learn about their rights and duties, and perform the work necessary to obtain bankruptcy relief.

I personally meet with each client and spend the time it takes to gather and understand the facts of their case. I then advise my clients in plain, understandable language of their options and consequences. When it is necessary to use legal terms, I explain them. Questions are welcomed. It is important to me that you understand your legal circumstances, my advice, and your options so that we can most effectively assert and protect your rights.

  • In my senior year at Stetson Law School, I took the course “BANKRUPTCY”, taught by then Chief Judge Alexander Paskay of the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, (now Chief Judge Emeritus). I received the American Jurisprudence “Book Award” for the highest grade in that class. I have been passionately immersed in bankruptcy law ever since.
  • I have practiced law since 1980 in the same court, the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. Since 1980 I have practiced law from the same building, at the same address. I have practiced with the other attorney in the firm, John H. Pecarek, for the same length of time.
  • I am proud of the "AV" rating* I have received by the Martindale-Hubbell peer-review rating system.
  • I have a God-given talent that assists all in being helpful and effective for my clients. I have an irrepressible and slightly irreverent sense of humor that lightens our meetings and interactions. Many have felt it helped the “medicine go down”.

Contact my office today to learn more about how I can help you with your bankruptcy and debt-relief needs. We can discuss how you can go about declaring bankruptcy and find ways of reaching a resolution to your situation.
