Experience to Remember
John and his team were absolutely excellent and I am beyond grateful for everything they did for me. They took a situation that was very daunting to me and made everything easy because they were so knowledgeable, professional and caring. John Hernandez and Joshua Meran were both more than pleasant to work with on top of all the other qualities I listed above. If I ever need a law firm again I will absolutely be using John and his team!

A Blessing
Mr. Hernandez was a blessing. I was having a hard time getting answers from my previous Law Firm and I found Him on YELP. He consulted with me. He was very knowledgeable and he kept communication open with me. I never felt my case was less than important. I appreciate all that he and his Firm did.
