Hersh & Hersh was the first firm to develop the specialty in the area of reproductive medicine, including the liability of fertility clinics and sperm banks. Hersh & Hersh successfully represented a plaintiff 20 years ago in a landmark case arising out of the transfer of the wrong embryo to our client which resulted in a custody battle over the child.
More recently, Hersh & Hersh successfully represented multiple families whose children were conceived with donor sperm from a sperm bank which resulted in children at risk for schizophrenia. We are presently representing families with children conceived of donor sperm who have children with autism.
Today Hersh & Hersh is representing individuals who had eggs and/or sperm in Tank 4 at Pacific Fertility Clinic in San Francisco when the tank failed last March due to the conduct of multiple parties. The litigation is currently proceeding and Hersh & Hersh has filed complaints in the San Francisco Superior Court.
