Very knowledgeable ...
I spoke with Fernando awhile ago, he was very helpful, knowledgeable and patient in explaining estate planning. I felt he was trustworthy and would refer him to colleagues.

I'm very happy with Fernando's legal services and advice
Fernando was referred to me by a friend because she said he did a good job creating her trusts and I wanted a trust to protect our assets in case we got sued. He also helped us design a will that 'poured over' into our trust so if my husband and I were to die, my son would get what he was entitled to without any hassles or legal costs. Fernando is an expert in wills, trusts, and estates as well as Elder Law. It is all he does! He does not dabble in other areas of law like so many lawyers around town do. I'm very happy with Fernando's legal services and advice. I recommend him to all my friends and clients because he is great at what he does and his prices are very reasonable. Don't make the mistake of going to an online service or "jack of all trades" lawyer to save a few hundred bucks and risk losing your child's inheritance or your assets if you're sued . Go see Fernando, you won't be sorry.
