Back in the U.S. after more than a month working in Jakarta and on Bangka Island in Indonesia.
State Senator and WA State Insurance Commissioner Karl Herrmann founded the firm in 1950. His son Charles Herrmann and granddaughter Lara grew the firm further. We are a personal injury firm that handles everything from airplane crashes to car crashes.
One of the firm’s more famous cases was featured in the movie “Tailspin.” Chuck represented 89 families of victims from Korean Airlines Flight 007, which was shot down by a Russian fighter jet. He won.
My commitment to justice, accountability, and the public good continues.
Oh, and yes, I have been writing, too. I will keep you posted on my author blog.
In Indonesia, I became enamored with the culture, reading authors such as Pramoedya Anata Toer. Also, I started James Michener’s memoir, “The World is My Home.”
As Rudyard Kipling said, “This is a brief life, but in its brevity it offers some splendid moments, memorable adventures.”
I posted pictures from Indonesia on my Instagram page, which is my primary form of social media these days.
I will be returning to Indonesia as there is more work to be done. The families from the Lion Air crash are heartbroken. They deserve vigorous representation.
