About Omar

Learn Omar’s areas of practice.

I have dedicated my entire legal career to helping victims of accidents caused by the negligence of others.  One of the most important things that sets me apart from other personal injury attorneys is accessibility.  Taking the time to answer all of my client's questions or concerns has very rewarding.  Most of my new clients are referrals from prior clients, so I am aware of how important good customer service is.  


I offer a free consultation and all fees are contingent upon a successful recovery.  That means that I don't get paid unless you get paid. Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A Superb & Winning Attorney
Omar was interested in my case from the start and met with me very soon after an accident. Omar listened patiently, gave me concise, accurate and understandable information, and he also consistently followed through on all matters regarding my case until it was finally settled satisfactorily. In addition, Omar has gone above and beyond by giving me excellent legal advice regarding other matters. I highly recommend Omar and believe his in-depth knowledge, wide experience, good heartedness and passion for justice would serve anyone well who needs a talented lawyer for an important case.

Honest, informative, proactive and responsive
I was in a minor car accident and did my best to work with the insurance companies to no avail. A friend recommended I reach out to Omar. During the consultation he laid everything out to me plain and simple and assured me I would be made whole. I put everything in his hands and I'm so glad I did. Omar did a great job for me and I highly recommend him.

Reliable and personable attorney
Mr. Cardenas is the type of attorney who picks up his phone or will call you back as soon as possible. He was extremely patient in explaining every step of the process to me, and honest with the realities of my case. His honesty made me trust him right away, and I knew he had my best interests in mind. I highly recommend not only because he's a great attorney, but because he gives the type of personal service to his clients that isn't that common anymore.
