    Michael Hernandez is a leader in the community with his knowledge about his areas of practice. He has a keen understanding of the law and he puts his loyalty and duty to his client first during every step of his representation. As a client, he is a person you can count on to help you when you find yourself in the unfortunate position requiring an attorney. He will not only give you the best legal advice available, he will also ease your concerns by carefully explaining the law as it pertains to your case. As a colleague, he is a person you can depend on to share his unique knowledge in his areas of practice. I highly recommend this attorney.
