I have been working with this law firm, since June of 2013... it seems that when I first called they had an investigator come out and speak to me the very next day after my incident at my home, but for some reason in the following months I have not been able to get creditable answers from this office. I call and the Paralegals forget what they told you a month earlier about your case and it seems like they have this way of just adding extra time to what they spoke with their client about. They claim that they have already submitted my demand letter and its been over a month now, but unfortunately if you try contacting them they act as if they just sent it yesterday. I have yet to speak with any Attorneys in the office concerning anything with my case. If and I say If they have sent my demand letter I have not gotten a copy or seen any documentation for it. I am not even sure if the attorneys knows what his staff is telling clients when we call in to check the status of my case. I have started doing research to see if I can hire another Attorneys office to take over my case... Thought this was suppose to be a great law firm but its a lie.

I had a serious motorcycle accident and was badly injured. I look around and found many attorneys claiming that they handle motorcycle accident cases. When I called them I found out that none of them ride motorcycles. I then called Mr. Fernandez. I found that Mr. Fernandez not only rides motorcycles, but he is an expert rider I later found out. He knew exactly what I was talking about. Norman got me a substantial amount of money in my case. God forbid I ever get hurt again, this is the only man I will go too. If you need a motorcycle accident attorney, Norman is the only one you should trust with your case.

I had a major car accident. I called Norman and he took care of me. He got my car fixed, he got me medical treatment, he got me money. He always returned my calls. Norman is as good as it gets.

I contacted Fernandez about a personal injury I encountered, he sent an investigator to my home to "collect" information. After a week or so I tried to contact him to provide updated medical records and evidence, he never responded. I had to find out through the investigator that mr. Fernandez would not be handling my case and had passed me to his partner firm located in the middle of nowhere. I've tried countless times to speak with the lawyer but he does not return messages. I'm done with this law firm and the lack of concern they have for clients. Don't waste your time.

My car was hit by a woman who was speeding. At first I made the mistake of trying to handle the case on my own. I was taken to the ER. Once I was discharged from the ER, I could not go back to see a doctor because I had no medical insurance. I was in pain and trying to get money from her insurance company so I could go to the doctor. I only had liability insurance so my insurance would not cover anything because I was not at fault. The insurance company for the women who hit me strung me along and then said that I was at fault and refused to pay anything. I hired an attorney to handle my case, but he did not return my calls and he made me run around and get the police report and my own medical records, I felt like I was getting the run around. He did not get me to a doctor either. I was then told about Mr. Fernandez from one of my friends who has used him. I was able to talk to Mr. Fernandez directly about my case. He told me that I could switch to him if I wanted him to handle my case. I could tell Mr. Fernandez does not mess around so I hired him. Mr. Fernandez fired my attorney for me and jumped into my case. He got me to a doctor the same day I called him even though I do not have medical insurance. I am a strong man but reliving what happened to me in this accident brings tears to my eyes. I had intense paid throughout my entire back, I was having headaches, I could not think straight and I did not know what to do. Mr. Fernandez told me not to worry, my only job was to go to the doctor and get better, and he would handle the rest. Well Mr. Fernandez was a man of his word, he not only got me to a doctor, but I also went to an Orthopedic doctor and had an MRI. After 6 months of treatment, I have my life back again. When I went to Mr. Fernandez I could not even sit on the toilet without feeling like my back was going to collapse. Now although I am not 100% I can function. I opted not to have back surgery. My Fernandez got me medical treatment and a very good chunk of money in my case, enough to put a down payment on a house, get a new car, and keep some in the bank. Thank you Mr. Fernandez I owe my life to you. Thank You.

My daughter and I were in a car accident about a year ago. Norman told us up front about everything that was going to happen. He got us medical treatment because we had no insurance. He got us a good settlement. I could not be more happy. If I ever have an accident again I will call no one but Norman Fernandez.

My family and I were in a bad car accident. Our insurance company tried to deny that we had liability insurance which would have left us stuck only being able to collect out of pocket money. Lawyer Fernandez got involved and took care of everything. Not only did our insurance company cover us for liability on the car that we bought less than 30 days before the accident, Lawyer Fernandez got my family a good chunk of money including me, my wife, and my kids. He also got us doctor treatment when we did not have medical insurance. Lawyer Fernandez is the only Lawyer I would ever go to if god forbid we were hurt in an accident again.

I had a situation where my son lived with me for years while his mother drugged it up with a series of drug addicts and losers. Then one day after she sobered up she decided to keep my son and not return him to me. She got a lawyer and they filed papers against me. The court allowed her to keep my son and only give me visitation. Once Mr. Fernandez got involved I got my son back after one hearing, and after 3 hearings it was finished, the mother only gets supervised visits, she has to drive to where we live for the visits, and she has to pay child support. The way I look at it Mr. Fernandez saved my sons life. Without Mr. Fernandez my son would have had to live with his drug addicted mother. Also Mr. Fernandez has the lowest rate of any family law lawyer I called. Thank you thank you Mr. Fernandez. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to Mr. Fernandez.

I am so happy with Norman Fernandez. He got me more money than I have ever seen in my life.
I had another attorney on this case but they did not return my calls and then they wanted me to pay money out of my pocket to file the case. I fired them and hired Norman.
Thank you Norman the money you got me is going to allow me to buy a house.

I contacted Mr. Fernandez after an accident at a major retailer; he spoke to me for an hour and sent an "investigator" to have me sign some docs the following day. However, he passed me on to his partner law firm, and things went downhill from there. They were not responsive (even the paralegal) and did not investigate the scene. I cc'd Mr. Fernandez on several emails to his partner, no response. Even when I wrote a letter outlining the problems I was having, I did not hear back from Mr. Fernandez or his partner. I would assume that if there was a problem with the case, the injury or the medical, they would have let me know instead of not communicating.
Ultimately, I had to terminate the relationship.
To clarify a couple of things: The first time I posted this review, Mr. Fernandez posted a rebuttal stating that he never heard of me, and this was probably a fake review posted by one of his competitors. Upon seeing this, I sent yet another email, on 1//24/12, to refresh his memory on me and the case in question.
Also, when I refer to a partner law firm, the case ended up being handled by one of the at-counsel attorneys using his firm’s name, instead of being handled by Mr. Fernandez, although he was the person I spoke to and was under the impression that he would be handling the case.

I was hit by a car while crossing street in crosswalk. Mr. Fernandez got my medical bills paid, got me doctors for my long therapy, and got me very good money. He has saved my family.

My family was in a terrible car accident. Mr. Fernandez and his firm got me a very quick total loss payment from the girl who his us. My wife and I were both injured as well as our kids. After we were done treating with the doctor, Mr. Fernandez got us a very nice settlement on our case. We were able to put a down payment on a new house with the money he got us. Nothing will take away from the pain and anguish we went through in the crash, but without Mr. Fernandez we would not have our new house. Since that time my wife was on a bus going to work that crashed. Mr. Fernandez is now working that case as well. I can honestly say that I would use no other lawyer for personal injury than Mr. Fernandez.

I have used a few attorneys. Norm is the best I have ever dealt with. He is an expert at what he does, and won my case quickly. He is an honest, ethical attorney.

I have dealt with many attorneys over the years. Norman is by far the best I have ever seen. His knowledge of the law is without equal, and he always responds to my needs.
