Hersh & Hersh was founded over four decades ago by a fearless and compassionate father and daughter team, LeRoy Hersh (1920-2003) and Nancy Hersh. Nancy and LeRoy started Hersh & Hersh to provide dedicated legal representation to people and their families who had been injured or harmed in some way. Nancy and LeRoy shared the practice and the drive to obtain justice for injured people.
Throughout her career she has been a passionate advocate, using the law to address women’s healthcare issues and other areas of social justice. As one of the first female personal injury lawyers, she combines the tenaciousness, determination, and empathy for her clients in the area of drugs and medical devices designed especially for women such as IUDs, DES (the drug given to pregnant women to prevent miscarriage), breast implants , diet drugs, and other such products.
These attributes are essential as she has tackled a series of groundbreaking cases including DES Litigation, the first breast implant case to establish the connection between silicone and physical injuries, and the first Diet Drug (Fen-Phen) case filed and settled.
Nancy Hersh received her B.A. from the University of California and her J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. She is a member of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association and President of American Board of Trial Advocates.
