Very knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate attorney. I don't know how I would have gotten through my divorce without him. Highly recommend him.

In my opinion, Rafael is a rare find - a person with the utmost integrity, extreme intelligence, and personal committment & caring for the people he represents. I found Rafael to be one of the few lawyers that has effectively combined doing the right thing with the demands of legal process and procedure. Rafael is passionate about his work, but realistic about the potential outcomes. He shows a real concern for his clients, even if it means making a decision not to his benefit. He navigates the complex legal aspects of the case with surgical precision, but never forgets to keep it simple. He is extremely knowledable, but willing to reach out for help to ensure the best possible outcome. He is what all lawyers should be.
I am honored to have been his client.

I was wrongfully arrested (charged with "Resisting Officer without Violence") along with a friend who was charged with a DUI. We both hired Mr Echemendia per recommendation from a friend who had been in a similar situation as me and gotten his case dropped prior to his first court date! Mr. Echemendia is very talented and knew that we had a good chance of winning both cases due to the police officer's wrongful arrest and the evidence available to support that. He was also very fair on fees, and I only paid one fixed amount and was promissed that would cover all expenses no matter how far the case would go. Mr. Echemendia was perfectly balanced between being smart and aggressive in court, and the state attorney who prosecuted us never really got a chance to shine after Mr. Echemendia's first examination in our hearing. Case Closed!

I used Echemendia for my divorce and child support case. He is easy to get along with, and he explained all the information that I needed for my case. I would def recommend him to everyone.

Mr. Echemendia is a very talented, aggressive yet professional, knowledgeable, and effective attorney. I was facing charges that depending on the judge, could have meant hard time and thousands of dollars. Mr. Echemendia was able to work around my schedule so that I did not miss work, did no jail time, and only paid court costs. I will never use anyone else.

Excellent attorney... Rafael Echemendia was an excellent choice. He was very professional as well as his staff. I hired Mr. Echemendia to help fight for custody of my 3 children along with support for them. He respected my opinons and decisions throughtout the process in and out of the courtroom. He won my case and I was granted everything I asked for and much more. I reccommend Rafael Echemendia over any attorney out there.

He was very honest and communicated very thorough with me. He did not make promises that he didn't deliver. He did everything he projected and then some! The insurance company offered me $60K and I agreed to accept and when Mr. Echemendia called me back he told me we settled for $90K and then he was able to negotiate my medical bills down that put an additional $6K in my pocket and it didn't even benefit him to spend time doing that.
