Athena Herman has been practicing employment law since 1997.

She was privileged to learn employment law and litigation with Patricia Benassi, a co-founder of Benassi & Benassi along with her husband, A. Lou Benassi. With Patricia Benassi as her mentor, Athena Herman learned the law, strategy and perseverance – and to represent courageous underdogs against the biggest companies and defense firms. Athena was proud to be identified by the Law Bulletin as one of Illinois’ Top 40 Attorneys under 40 in 2011 (one of only two lawyers given that distinction outside the Chicago area). When Patricia retired, Athena dedicated herself to carrying on the firm’s tradition of excellence.

In addition to representing employees and select employers in litigation, Athena Herman routinely negotiates separation and severance agreements on behalf of workers and high-level executives, and regularly presents regarding federal court practice and employment law at educational seminars hosted by the Illinois State Bar Association and Peoria County Bar Association.
