About me

A passionate advocate for defending his clients. Art Hernandez, has worked tirelessly to advocate, defend and advance his client's causes and issues throughout his career. His passion stems from his belief that  people matter and their issues matter as well. His dedication to people began early, as his first career was in the medical field as a Paramedic for 10 years. This medical experience allows him to better understand medical issues in medical malpractice and personal injury cases. It also allows him to explain the medical terminology in "plain English" to his clients. 

His passion for helping people extends to his legal practice now. Whether it is a delicate personal family matter, a wrongfully accused defendant, a client facing financial difficulties, or any other host of legal problems; Art Hernandez and the attorneys at Hernandez Law Firm, LLC, will work tirelessly for you.
