Lara Herrmann has zealously represented victims against insurance companies and corporations in cases of personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice for almost two decades. As owner and CEO of HERRMANN LAW GROUP, she has honed her skills representing clients nationally and internationally at pre-litigation, trial, and appellate levels.
Lara earned “Rising Star” status three times in Washington Law & Politics. She has also been named one of the Top 100 trial lawyers by The National Trial Lawyers. She focuses on fast results and just compensation for her clients, whether they were injured in a car crash or a mass casualty disaster. On every case, she is committed to the care her clients deserve.
Lara’s fierce work ethic has won millions of dollars in compensation for her clients. Along with her team at HERRMANN LAW GROUP, Lara contributed invaluable legal services to injured and deceased victims of some of the world’s most tragic mass casualty disasters. Most recently, Lara and HERRMANN LAW GROUP won more than nine million dollars for their clients in the “Ride the Ducks” crash case.
Currently, Lara is advocating relentlessly for victims of the Amtrak Cascades passenger train 501 which derailed in Du Pont, Washington in 2017, student marching band victims of the 2018 University of Washington bus crash occurring near George, Washington; and the survivors of 22 decedents from the Lion Air Flight JT 610 which crashed over the Java Sea in 2018.
As a third-generation trial lawyer, Lara is driven by the values of her family starting with her grandfather, former Washington State Senator and Insurance Commissioner Karl Herrmann, who believed in advocating for those who need justice. Now working with her father, Charles Herrmann, Lara is proud to continue the family tradition. She is passionate about sharing these values with her team at HERRMANN LAW GROUP and her community. Lara has made it a priority to volunteer her time to causes that promote the best of the legal world. To this end, Lara created the Seattle University School of Law Woman of the Year Award to honor outstanding women in the legal field, served as a leader in Washington Women Lawyers, and taught trial skills at the Trial Advocacy Program for LSU Law School.
Lara lives in Tacoma, Washington with her two children, Amelia and John. In her free time, she enjoys staying active and creative outlets. She plays tennis, ballroom dances, and studies painting.
