Crashed, Flipped, and cured.
In November a driver ran a stop sign and flipped my jeep. I put my trust into Attorney Martin Hernandez. Mr. Hernandez was there for me every single step from getting a rental car, treatment, lost wages, and damages to personal belongings i had lost in the flip. The flipped car turned my world upside down literally and with hospital bills in thousands not once did i feel uneasy, unable or insecure. Mr Hernandez was always there and continues to be as my attorney for life.

Attorney Hernandez a strong advocate for his clients
Attorney Martin Hernandez is a strong advocate for his clients. He works at all lengths to get the best results for those who have trusted him with their personal injury case. Mr. Hernandez does not take "no" for an answer and makes sure that his clients benefit in whatever way their case resolves. Mr. Hernandez makes sure his clients come first and does not let the insurance companies take advantage of his clients at a time where it would be easy for them to be taken advantage of. I would recommend Mr. Hernandez to anyone that I know who was involved in a car accident.

Martin Hernandez is hands down the most professional yet compassionate lawyer I have ever encountered. From the moment you meet with Martin, in my case it was an initial consultation, you are put completely at ease. Martin is expert level in specific regards to knowing the law, knowing avenues that can be taken and has outstanding connects to other experts in the field. Martin upholds the highest integrity and professionalism, winning time and time again with class and humility. I think the world of Martin because he gave me my life back at a time when I was very unsure about a specific and vital outcome. Martin also has an extensive network of lawyers who specialize in a variety of types of law, so he makes sure your needs are met. Martin knows all the right people and has the perfect recipe for getting the job done and getting the client ultimate justice.

Very professional
Ive been checking out different attorneys on this website, annd I must say, out of the ones I've come across, he's been the most responsive and friendly. Even though it was just for a consultation before I took any action , he was very accomodating and professional. He guided me through everything from A to z, showing a great understanding of the process and familiarity with my situation. I wanted to leave this feedback to highlight what gem he is in this industry.
