    • I do not recommend William Fernandez.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Immigration matter.

    A friend had this lawyer handling his case, and out of all the lawyers we called, he requested the lowest retainers fee, so we hired him for my boyfriend's case. They give you an appointment in the morning, but you don't get to see him till 3pm. once you pay him the $1500, he does an amazing disappearing act, in which you have to hunt him down through his secretaries that are only there to answer the phone and say hello. they ask you to come over weekend after weekend, paying $50 each time, so you can wait from 9am-3pm) and have them tell you that there's nothing they can do at the moment. just to get info on how the whole immigrations process works, and what are the viable options was like pulling teeth and they still had the nerve to start charging us the remaining balance, after not doing anything in over a month. stay away.

    #1. U HAVE TO WAIT THE WHOLE DAY IN ORDER TO SEE HIM. They put u in the list at 9am,and the lawyer gets in around 11am,they call u to c him around 2 or 3 pm. I've been there like 7 different times and it is always like that.
    #2. Once he gets ur money,it is almost impossible to see him again. They always give u appointments to c him but he never shows up. They always call u to cancel. U must to go there on saturdays or sundays, wait since 9 am 'til 2 or 3 pm to c him, but only if u give them money, otherwise they won't let u get in.
    #3. When he first meet u, he's tells u wonderful things about ur case that make u feel safe,but once he gets ur money and take the case u won't c him again. He's never in the office,all those bunch of girls in that office act like if he is a ghost.They never have an aswer.U always get out feeling the frustration.
    #4. He's always tired,and sleepy.He just want to take cases to make money,once he gets the case he don't care about u anymore.U must to keep going there,calling every day,and making appointments that they always cancel. And if finally u can c in on the weekend, he tells u to come during the week if u r not a new customer! And during the week it is impossible to get in touch w/him!!!
    #5. Don't hire this man.Get a lawyer that is able to handle a reasonable amount of customers.William just wants to get new customers,more and more all the time but he's not able to handle all of his customers,because he has too many to deal with.

  3. Stay away - no contraten a este abogado.

    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    If I could I would give him 0 stars. I know there is a good review here listed for him but I honestly think this was written by him. He is a horrible lawyer, does not seem to care for his clients. We hired him in November since a cousin was arrested in Arizona, when we spoke to him for the 1st time he was very nice and told us that in 6 weeks he will be out it has been 4 months and my cousin nor us have heard anything from him. We call almost everyday, leaving messages all the time and he never calls back and never is in the office. We have go to his office in an attempt to speak to him but he is never available. The secretary makes us wait all day and when we finally get to go in we are unable to speak to the lawyer, we only get to talk to the counselor. Every time we go to the office in an attempt to try to talk to him, we have to pay $50.00 to be seen but we never get to see him. It appears as tho he is only available for his clients until he gets paid and then he dissapears. Please find another lawyer do not let him take your money.

    • I recommend William Fernandez.

    I was detained in an Immigration Jail in Texas (Laredo). I already had a deportation order and in a matter of days I was supposed to go back to my country. He reopened my case despite the advised of other lawyers that this was impossible. Thanks to him I am back with my wife and children
