My experience w/ Mr. Fernandez and his asst. was not pleasant for the following reasons:
I had to stay on top of them with all things pertaining to my case. Had I not done so, my case would have played out for approx. 1 yr., and I would have exhausted all of my settlement money. I did the majority of calling the office for any and all information.
In our initial consultation, Mr. Fernandez told me he would let me know when his costs exceeded $300. It was only when I signed the settlement papers, did I realize his final costs were $600.
Most importantly, Mr. Fernandez initially tried to get me to sign off on a small settlement, w/ me paying out $4000 of my settlement money in remaining bills to my treating providers. Only when I asked him why he wasn’t calling the providers to negotiate, did he do so! What if I hadn’t said anything about him negotiating??
Other frustrations include Mr. Fernandez and his assistant lacking people skills. There was no comfort, explaining things “crystal” clearly, or true reassurance that their office would do any and everything on my behalf. I had to do my own homework, and educate myself on all things related to this case. I often felt like an annoyance, and was cut off and interrupted in conversations before being rushed off the phone or out of the office. I wonder if my case been more profitable for them, would they have been more attentive, caring or willing to explain with patience?
For all these reasons, I will not be recommending this firm to anyone, nor will I be using them again in the future.
i have nothing but good experience with this lawyer. he keeps to his word and keeps me informed. when his office says manny will call you back thats what he does. i have learned that he would rather speak your case to you in person than over the phone which i like alot better. if i had to hire a lawyer for any other reason i would hire this law group again over any body else. thank you for all your help manny, you are good at what you do.
