Herrmann Law Firm was established in 1950 by former State Senator and Insurance Commissioner Karl Herrmann (1915-1997).  Upon Karl Herrmann’s retirement, his son Charles Herrmann assumed management of the firm and cemented its position in the Tacoma and Seattle communities.

Today, the family tradition is continued by Karl Herrmann’s granddaughter Lara, in partnership with John Scholbe.  The Herrmann Scholbe staff also includes former Senior Judge of the United States Army Court of Military Review James Su-Brown.

Herrmann Scholbe emphasizes in all forms of personal injury law including auto accidents and medical malpractice. The firm has also represented injured parties in several notable aviation disaster and maritime injury cases.

Providing strong representation to people injured in often tragic accidents is what Herrmann Scholbe does every day. We fight for fair compensation from insurance companies, governmental bodies and other large entities. We promise to provide first class, professional legal services to each one of our clients.
