Great Attorney - Highly recommend for any legal matter
I hired Mr. Hernandez to represent me on a Simple Assault case in Middlesex County . Not only did Mr. Hernandez get these false charges dismissed on the first court date but he made himself available 24/7 to answer any questions and to also reassure me he would fight for me . He answered every single one of my calls without hesitation.. Mr. Hernandez fees are very reasonable and worth every cent for the superior legal representation he offers . I highly recommend Mr. Hernandez . I will always appreciate what he did for me .
