Alexander W. Hermanowski

Most people call me Alex and I invite you to do the same. I am an attorney and my promise to you is that I will do my best to help you.

I became a lawyer to help people. Most people speak to an attorney as the last option. People come to me with difficult and stressful situations so I will do my best to make our conversations informed, respectful, and realistic.

I will do my best to make sure you understand your options so you can decide on what makes sense for you.

My Story

I started my career as a financial planner. Unfortunately it was a terrible time to start in the financial industry as the financial crisis just started.

After a few years, I decided that I needed to find a better way to help people so I quit my job and moved to Michigan to go to law school. After finishing law school, I took and passed the Michigan, New York, and New Jersey Bar Examinations. I then decided to stay in Michigan and try to help people here.

I was hired by the University of Michigan Student Legal Services. I still work there helping students with a variety of legal issues. My hunger to help people did not end there.

That is when I decided I could help even more people by having my own practice. That is how Hermanowski Law started.

My Approach

Most people don’t like going to the lawyer, doctor, or dentist. I will do my best to make sure its as easy on you as possible.

My goal is to put you in a better position than you were before you came to me. This means that I will explain the process, help you understand your options, and guide you so that you can make informed decisions.

I will tell you how it is, but I will not belittle you, I will not make you feel dumb, I will not ignore you. When you decide to hire me, I will be there to help you.
