Kicking Off Summer

The months heading into summer are busy for us at the firm— including when it comes to community involvement. If you follow us on Facebook or keep up with the newsletter, you’ve undoubtedly seen the many ways we get involved in our communities, from Corpus Christi to McAllen. In April, we had a wonderful time at Fiesta de la Flor and being a part of the musical celebration of Selena Quintanilla. As you may know, we sponsored El Mercado, and it was great to see so many amazing artists and artisans in one place.

We’re working with more clients who have used Roundup herbicide products in the past and have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In the past, consumers were not fully warned about the cancer risk of certain types of herbicide. Now, links between Roundup use and non-Hodgkin lymphoma have been found. We’re also handling cases related to the use of talcum powder. Talcum powder, which is made from talc, has been connected to the development of certain types of cancer, including ovarian cancer in women. Right now, researchers are looking into the link, but primary studies suggest there is a link, and women have developed ovarian cancer after using talc-based products. In either case, we’re helping clients seek restitution for developing an illness they had no idea they could get from using what many people consider to be everyday products —many of which are still on store shelves, only now they feature a label indicating there may be some risk. It’s unfortunate this research came too late for many folks across the country. In happier news, our scholarship program is in full swing, and it’s open to both teachers and students! Not only do we have monetary prizes for six high school students but we’ve also extended the prize to two teachers. You can find complete details on our scholarship page at HerrmanAndHerrman.com/scholarship. And be sure to watch our Facebook page, Facebook.com/ HerrmanAndHerrmanPLLC, for updates! We’re looking forward to all the entries, and if last year was any indication, we’re in for a treat!

In May, we sponsored Lemonade Day McAllen. The May 4 event was all about teaching kids about entrepreneurship. It’s a fun gathering that really gets kids engaged not only in the community but also in small business. These events can often plant the seeds of entrepreneurship that kids carry as they grow, attend college, and make life decisions — and it starts with a lemonade stand. Then, on May 18, we sponsored the Beach to Bay Relay Marathon. This race attracts folks from all over the country and the world. After all, it is the biggest relay marathon in America. That same day, we sponsored yet another event at Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi! It was the 2019 Texas Body Painting Festival, which is in its third year. There, we sponsored Family Time, in which all ages were welcomed for body and face painting, along with all sorts of other activities.

Of course, it’s not all fun and games. There is a more serious topic I want to mention. We’ve recently started taking Roundup cases.
