I had a very difficult matter. I called Margaret Fernandez.
Margaret was very strategic. She thought about my case in ways that I had never thought about it. And she explained how critical it was that we win.
Margaret prepared me and showed me which facts in my case were important.
Most importantly, Margaret is a great coach. She got my head in the game. She is strict and disciplined. At first, she seemed harsh. She actually shouted at me to shut up a few times when she was preparing me. But I needed that. I was lost and rambling. I was in fear and denial. That shock helped me. Once I did what she said, and stopped thinking my way, and instead started thinking her way and doing what she said, my case came together.
Margaret carefully and patiently negotiated with the other side (they were completely arrogant and would not back down at all), but based on her recommendation, I decided to go forward and try the case.
She said that she will not take or push a case that she does not believe she cannot win. Also, now that I understand what all goes on, I know that the price was extremely fair.
When Margaret showed up in that courtroom, she was respectful, quiet, and humble, and she took control. I could see that Margaret respected the Judge and that the Judge respected Margaret. Margaret is a lady.
Margaret tried the case and won.
When I say that Margaret won, I am telling you she beat the other side like a congo drum, up one side and down the other, and at first the other side did not even know it was happening. At the end, when the smoke cleared, the other side could not have imagined how bad the outcome was going to be.
Margaret is a very quietly strong private person. In the beginning, when she pushed me, it upset me. But in the end, I understood that she was helping me to clear out the wrong way of thinking, to help me to get to what was really important in the case, and that she was completely dedicated to me, and was vested in my victory. One of the ways she wins is to help you change your way of thinking.
Margaret Fernandez and The Fernandez Law Firm are the very best in Atlanta. She is the best, she cared about me, she is beautiful, she made me think properly, she went to the mat for me, she is not afraid of anyone or anything, and she always keeps a cool head.
