Daniel Herting came to Iowa with an ambition to build a different kind of law firm. A firm not focused on a type of law, but on a way of helping people. Since establishing Herting Law, PLLC, he has labored to create a firm that is both sympathetic to a clients’ needs and vigilant in the pursuit of their goals.
As a Nebraska native Daniel attended the University of Nebraska for his bachelor’s degree and his graduate-level certification in public policy analysis. Daniel continued his education at Drake Law where he practiced as a student attorney for the Warren County Attorney’s Office, and later through Drake Law’s Advance Criminal Defense Clinic. Together these experiences allowed Daniel to learn criminal law from the experts, and to see the criminal justice system from both sides of the table.
Following law school Daniel traveled to Chongqing, China to study law as a Fellow at Southwest University of Politics and Law. During this time Daniel was able to study International Law from a Chinese perspective, travel throughout China, and learn just enough of the language to embarrass himself when he tries to speak Mandarin.
In his free-time Daniel is a frequent reader and infrequent writer. He is fan of travel, and hopes to return to China when time allows. Daniel is also diehard fan of Nebraska Cornhuskers football (but knows not to say so very loudly within Iowa borders).
Keith Herting took a circuitous route to arrive in Iowa. Originally from Nebraska, he attended Middlesex University in London to attain his Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative and Media Writing. Following his graduation he had worked in the Information Technology field in New York, NY and San Antonio, TX before choosing a career helping people navigate the many hurdles created by the legal system. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and then chose Iowa as the place he wanted to build a practice and a family.
While studying at the University of Pittsburgh, Mr. Herting worked tirelessly with the Immigration Law Clinic and a regional immigration law firm. He represented clients from all over the world in matters regarding asylum, removal proceedings, and helping clients pursue family or employment based immigration claims. Beyond his immigration experience, Mr. Herting also assisted clients in matters of custody disputes, family court orders, and criminal matters.
When Mr. Herting has a bit of free time it is usually spent watching football or hockey and will even read a book for pleasure from time to time.
