I cannot recommend Michael's services enough. he made a world of difference with my case. I have never been arrested before or had any run ins with the law, so naturally i was scared and had a lot of anxiety dealing with the legal proceedings to come. Michael made me feel completely at ease and put my fears to rest. He kept me in the loop of everything happening and in the end helped me resolve my issues. I will always recommend Mr. Hernandez to anyone needing legal help, he is definitely my lawyer for life.
I had known Michael Hernandez before my legal matters and I knew as soon as I had been arrested who I wanted to defend me. I contacted Michael immediately and he instantly calmed my nerves and began to talk me off a cliff. He was so incredibly supportive of what I was going through and made me feel like I wasn't alone. He helped to explain what was going on and what he was going to do for me and I knew he understood what was most important to me. He listened to me and it showed. The result was more than I could have ever dreamed of and if I ever have another legal after I will not hesitate to conact Michael; having someone who believed in me and wanted what was best for me really made this a learning experience. Michael is hands down one of the most dedicated people I have ever met and his passion for his clients and the law definitely shines through.
I was referred to Michael Hernandez by a lawyer I had used in another county. Michael came highly recommended and after working with him on a few issues I can understand why. Michael represented me on a DUI case where he negotiated my BAC from a .24 to a .15, reduced my financial obligations and kept me from doing jail time. I didn’t have to miss time from work to show up in court since he was there on my behalf. The results were fantastic but what really impressed me about Michael was his professionalism. He was able to answer all of my questions, explain the potential outcomes I was facing, devise a defense strategy and explain the next steps in the judicial process. He put me in a better place mentally and emotionally during a stressful time. Michael always is available to answer any follow up questions I might have or to point me in the right direction when other legal matters come up. I know I was receiving the best advice with Michael, and I recommend him to others.
I was referred to Michael by a lawyer friend of mine who doesn't handle criminal defense. My initial meeting was to be the day I was due in court. Michael showed up early and immediately made me feel safe and well taken care of during a pretty rough time. He took all of the weight off my shoulders and made me feel like I could relax and that he was there to handle everything. I was impressed that many people in the courthouse knew who he was and seemed like everyone respected him. During the time that he was working on my case it was very easy to reach Michael. If he wasn't able to answer my call he always called me right back. He constantly kept me up to date even with the smallest of details. The best part is, he ultimately got my case thrown out! Hopefully I don't ever need an attorney like that again, but if I do I am absolutely calling Michael. His number is saved in my phone as "my lawyer." I would recommend him to anyone who needs a defense attorney.
Michael was our criminal defense attorney in December 2012. Michael had a creative idea to eliminate some of my husband's felony charges and it worked!! My husband was initially charged with 3 felonies, but thanks to Michael's strategy my husband was only convicted of a misdemeanor at the end. Michael truly has his clients' best interests at heart. He consulted with an immigration attorney to make sure that my husband's charges would not hinder his pending immigration case. Michael also is very professional, and returns calls and emails in a very timely manner. My favorite, he mails you letters after any court proceedings to sum up what happened in court and let you know what the next step will be. If needed, I would without question hire Michael again.
As a first time offender, I had no idea on how to proceed. I had already met with a lawyer prior to being referred to Mr. Hernandez. Deciding to meet with Michael proved to be advantageous. I was immediately much more informed on how to proceed and opted to work with him. He handled my case with high knowledge and efficiency and ended with a favorable ruling and outcome. Informative, prompt and responsive. Mr. Hernandez epitomizes a true professional. Highly recommend.
I retained Mr. Hernandez to represent my mentally disabled son in a criminal misdemeanor case. He went above and beyond expectations and was able to establish a respectful and trusting relationship with my son. He clearly explained all of the legal issues to both of us and was always available to answer our questions. We feel very fortunate to have found such a caring and capable professional.
Mr. Hernandez was referred to me for my federal case. I flipped and totaled my car onto federal property with open containers. Luckily I had Mr. Hernandez represent me. I had to appear only twice, Mr. Hernandez was able to go in my place. I was facing DUI and open container charges and I was only charged with wet and reckless - Mr. Hernandez treated me like a priority and made me feel secure. I was blessed with his determination to win.
I was referred to Mr. Hernandez by a friend of mine. He worked on my DUI case 2 years ago. He got my case settled to a wet and reckless charge, which I considered a very positive out come. I had hired Mr. Hernandez service again, these time to work on the removal of my probation and case expungement.
