Growing With the Firm

Scott Staha on Two Decades With Herrman & Herrman

I knew early on that I wanted to be

I get to help stop that domino effect by getting clients some measure of compensation. Often, we can’t fix an injury or its aftermath, but we can do a lot to make a client’s life more comfortable. The real goal is to help them get back to something resembling normal and return to work. Being a part of the team for over 20 years, I’ve had a chance to meet a lot of fascinating people and do a lot of arguing. You don’t often hear about attorneys who stick with one firm for a majority of their career. It is fairly common for lawyers to jump from firm to firm until they find one that clicks, or they start their own firm. You could say Herrman & Herrman clicked early on. I found I was comfortable here and fit in. I’ve been able to grow alongside the firm. I was here when there were three or four of us, and now we’re over a dozen! It’s been an incredible journey. I’m excited to keep on learning, arguing, and giving our clients the help they need to get back on their feet. When I’m not at the office, I love to play outdoors. You’ll usually find me hunting or fishing. With Thanksgiving coming up, I’ll probably head home to Victoria, where my mother lives. In fact, I can’t think of a Thanksgiving when I didn’t go home to Victoria. I’ll have dinner with my mom, my sister, and her family. Then we’ll wrap up the day watching the Cowboys play. It doesn’t get better than that!

an attorney. There isn’t a better career than law, when you love to argue. On top of that, law is a highly competitive environment. When

you’re facing all kinds of litigation, you get to exercise your competitive side. It seemed like a good fit for me.

I’ve been with Herrman & Herrman for 21 years, and I can still say that I learn something new every day. Every case is different. There might

be similarities from one case to another, but the details are always new. It keeps me on my toes, and it keeps me learning. For instance, since we do a lot of work with personal injury law, we’re always learning from a medical perspective. While we may be well-versed in topics of law, when it comes to the specifics of the health care system or medical practices, we learn what we need to know to help our client. The number one thing that keeps me passionate about working in law is simply helping people. People come to us in need. They may have been injured, which led to missing work, which meant the medical bills piled up. Insurance companies generally don’t care that a single injury can have domino effect throughout someone’s life.
