Hannibal Heredia represented me for over 1-1/2 years during my divorce proceedings. Mr. Heredia provided excellent representation. Mr. Heredia was very strategic in preparing for my case. He was very thorough in explaining the legal aspects of my case. He explained the purpose and the strategy behind all of his briefs and letters. Mr. Heredia provided insight on how my judge has ruled on similar issues in the past and what to expect in my case. I felt overly prepared in all of my court appearances. I was never surprised by the judge's rulings or the opposing attorney's tactics. While I may not have agreed with the judge's rulings or the opposing attorney's tactics, I was never surprised. This was very important to me.
Mr. Heredia was very strategic in which battles to fight. There were battles that I wanted to fight but Mr. Heredia explained that some did not support the strategy that we developed and would not optimize the use of my limited resource for legal fees. In addition, I thought he made every attempt to minimize my legal fees. Through his actions and counsel, I am convinced that Mr. Heredia understood my goals and shared my concerns for my for my daughters. I strongly and passionately recommend Mr. Heredia.
If you're looking for an attorney who isn't a "stuff suit"--someone who genuinely cares about your situation --Hannibal Heredia is the perfect choice for a divorce lawyer. Hannibal just finalized my divorce on Friday. It was a year and a half of dealing with a very challenging situation that included my ex-husband being declared mentally incompetent to respresent himself. Eventually Hannibal and I were dealing with my ex's attorney and his court appointed guardian ad litem, as well as a guardian ad litem for our two young children. I knew nothing of the divorce process, and was completely overwhelmed at times. Over, and over, Hannibal took the time necessary to explain what my options were and how my decisions would impact the final divorce settlement. Hannibal ALWAYS returned my calls and e-mails promptly. His staff are very professional, knowledgable, and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone. He is a great attorney, and was a very nice person to work with during what was a very painful time for my and my children.
Hannibal has always done his best to represent me when "dealing" with my ex. I would highly recommend him and have recommended him to many of my friends
Hannibal has successfully handled several family Law issues for me over the last 7 years including divorce, court proceedings, custody, visitation and mediation. He is an exceptionally gifted family attorney, who is empathetic and honest. I explicitly trust his guidance and judgment.
I have used Hannibal as my lawyer for almost 8 years in matters concerning my child and his father. He has helped protect my son and get the child support I was not receiving. Hannibal has been very patient with me and my questions/concerns which I have always been appreciative of. He has been very effective for me and I would never hire anyone else.
