Seattle attorney Charles Herrmann announced today that he and prominent civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump reached agreement to mutually represent the entire family of Antonio Zambrano-Montes, the Mexican man shot down by the Pasco police on February 10, 2015. Herrmann has been representing the widow and Crump has been representing the parents of the victim.

Herrmann stated: “In a lengthy conversation with attorney Crump yesterday, I found him a warmhearted professional who cares deeply about the issues presented in this case. We had no trouble reaching agreement to share responsibility in handling the case.” Mr. Crump will return to Pasco late next week to meet with Herrmann and the Zambrano family to work out the details with each other and to secure the family’s approval.

Each attorney brings different strengths to the team. Attorney Crump has vast civil rights experience in cases such as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, while Herrmann, a former Deputy Prosecutor himself, has been internationally recognized for handling literally hundreds wrongful deaths in numerous aviation disaster cases such as the Shoot Down of a Korean Air flight 007 by a Soviet MIG over Sakhalin Island in 1983 to currently the Asiana crash at San Francisco.

“I think it fair to say that together, we will make a formidable legal team to prosecute the civil case for this unjustifiable killing of an unarmed man," Herrmann concluded.
