Sean F. Herrmann is a Partner at Herrmann & Murphy, PLLC in Charlotte, North Carolina. Licensed to practice in North Carolina and South Carolina, Mr. Herrmann focuses his practice primarily on employment law, and he represents the rights and entitlements of employees across both states who are dealing with a serious workplace grievance or some other work-related matter they need to address.

A highly rated trial attorney, Mr. Herrmann has achieved notable success assisting clients with asserting their rights while fighting to achieve the full and fair restitution they deserve for their serious workplace grievances involving all types of discrimination and harassment, employer retaliation and wrongful terminations, wage and hour disputes, and other matters. He also counsels employees and executives on matters pertaining to employment contracts, noncompete agreements, severance packages and other similar matters, and he has a vast amount of experience dealing with workplace torts and civil rights abuses.

A 2009 summa cum laude graduate of Illinois College, Mr. Herrmann attended the University of Illinois College of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor magna cum laude in 2012. While in law school, he received the CALI awards in employment discrimination, labor law and the civil litigation clinic, and he served as notes editor for the University of Illinois Journal of Law, Technology & Policy. He also served on a national moot court competition team.

Along with practicing before all North Carolina and South Carolina state courts, he is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Western and Middle Districts of North Carolina as well as before the District of South Carolina and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit.

Mr. Herrmann is a member of several local, state, and national bar associations, including the young lawyers division and employment law section of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice as well as the National Employment Lawyers Association. He is also heavily involved with the Mecklenburg County Bar, and he volunteers his legal services to those less fortunate throughout his community.

Fluent in Spanish, Mr. Herrmann finds great reward in being able to help his Hispanic and Latino clientele, and he has earned top ratings and several awards and honors for his professionalism and service, including recognition from The Best Lawyers in America in 2018 and 2019 and he was recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2019.
