“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”
Raised in Palm Beach County, Florida, Herb left the sunny shores of Florida’s east coast to attend the University of South Carolina, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. Following college, Herb returned to Palm Beach County, where he began his career as a sports journalist, working as a sports reporter for the Palm Beach Post; as a host, producer, writer and reporter for ESPN Radio – West Palm; and as a producer, reporter, and sports news anchor for WPTV Newschannel 5.
Seeking to fulfil a life-long passion, Herb left the sports media industry and enrolled in law school at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University, where he graduated summa cum laude and third in his class.
Herb joined Hightower & Partners several years ago and since then has focused his practice on defending Florida and out-of-state companies in tort and contract pre-suit and litigation matters. His practice includes automobile negligence, premises liability, negligent security, negligent hiring, negligent entrustment, negligent training, PIP defense, insurance coverage, subrogation, breach of contract, traffic defense, and many other areas. Herb’s litigation prowess and ability to communicate with clients earned him a promotion to a Division Leader in the firm’s West Palm Beach office, where he continues to produce exemplary results for his clients.
In his spare time, Herb enjoys spending time with his wife Sarah and his children, Lucy and Sam. He has never lost his love of sports, and continues to support his beloved New York Mets and South Carolina Gamecocks. His hobbies include playing basketball, reading, and enjoying the wonderful outdoors of his hometown Jupiter, FL.
