Following my accident/traumatic injuries, we met with Stephen Fernandez to discuss our options. We were impressed with his soft-spoken, calm demeanor which immediately made us feel very comfortable with him and his staff. From the start, he was open and honest and helped us to establish realistic expectations regarding the type of settlement we could expect and we so appreciated this approach. His care and concern for my well-being was genuine and he and his staff kept us informed every step of the way. I must say that he exceeded our expectations on every level. He is a consummate professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing the services of a great personal injury attorney.

I went to Mr. Fernandez because he was so great with a case he handled for my daughter. My family was amazed at how quickly he got in touch with her, when she called him. They helped her with what ever her issues were at the time. Even if it was just to put our mind at ease. A year after her case was successfully closed, I was in an awful accident. I sitting at a red light in a little vehicle while someone slammed into me in a Large V8 work truck. The confusion, dizziness, anxiety, fear set in almost immediately about what I was going to do. Of course, I called a couple of attorneys, as it was on the weekend. Received call back the next day & I spoke with one attorneys helper (no help at all). I still have not talked to the other Large Law Firm yet :) I was grateful that Mr. Fernandez called me quickly to let me know my options. He was not pushy at all he told me what to do to protect myself. I was worried about going to hospital (money is really tight as I have a ill child). Throughout my entire process. I felt as if I was his only client (even though I know he has a large clientele). The staff there were so helpful and pleasant. I would use this office for Any and All legal issues in my family future. They went above and beyond. Mr. Fernandez did erything he could do and I am pleased at the outcome. Mr. Fernandez Always asked about my daughter and how her heath was. Just know There are Attorneys still out there that care about your case, health, family and future. Don't hesitate to call Mr. Fernandez he truly cares about doing what is best for you.

Mr. Fernandez was an amazing lawyer. This was my first experience with a lawyer and it was excellent. He was very attentive to my every need. I would strongly recommend him or this law firm to anyone I know and use them in any future needs.

I endorse Stephen Fernandez. In my opinion he is one of the best Personal Injury lawyers in Sarasota and Manatee counties. He has always shown great knowledge of the law of personal injury, and experience in aggressively prosecuting cases against insurers and tortfeasors alike. Very thorough and methodical in his approach to cases, with a keen eye towards the right resolution and just compensation for the client.
