J. H. Moreno puts the 'family' in Family Law
My case involved working in an area where the court has very wide discretion (spousal support). The team at JHMoreno Law provided excellent and conscientious support over a 4-year period of support contention. They crossed all their t's and dotted the i's and documented everything. While this kind of administrative work is expensive, it was necessary in working with the slippery opposition. Much more important was the wisdom of the counsel provided to me. JHM, esq., was amenable to discussions about strategy and metaphor, most unusual in a legal context, but powerful in a trial situation. His associates were knowledgeable, and, when they didn't know, they looked it up. The staff treated me like family and I felt comfortable expressing myself in their offices. The work they have done on my behalf is first-rate. These lawyers are real people and, contrary to the usual negative 'shark' connotation, the tone of this law firm is compassionate and helpful. They have gone above and beyond in their prosecution of my case. I highly recommend them.

The best attorney in San Jose Bay Area
He is the nicest human being, a very honest man- a humble and dignified man- an amazing attorney,a family man- who cares about people and respects everyone- a passionate attorney, who will fight for you and will never let you down as a client. He has the nicest people working for him. All his attorneys are the "creme de la creme" of lawyers - they are wonderful and very good at what they do- the work together and put the client first. The parallegals are exceptional , professional and the bestl in what they do. I do not know why Hector does not have a 10 rating on AVO- he deserves nothing less than a 10- he is the best

Kindest, honest and best attorney, yet most expensive!!
I met Hector in the most difficult time. I would have lost my child if he did not step in. He reduced his fees for me. The office personnel are his family members. They are very courteous and respectful. I felt myself I am also part of the family. His presence calms me and instantly bring peace in my heart. They pray for all their clients on every Friday! He knows the legal system is corrupted, he recommended me to get out of the court system. If I had known how to make my ex happy so that he stopped litigating and ruining the family financially and emotionally, I would have done it. He keeps you informed, educates you and tell you the steps he is taking. He is very organized yet heavily dependent on the associates. His office is equipped with state of the art. They keep all the documents electronically that requires paralegal's time to scan, staples, copy and send via email as well as postal. They are responsive to opposite counsel's correspondence. They will write opposite counsel acknowledgement letter, then send the response to them as well as to you, they will again scan the copy of their faxed letter. All these administrative work adds up. He is very busy, most probably you need to work with one of the junior associate who is inexperienced and trying to gain experience at your expense. That could adds the cost on your legal expenses. You would meet him the day before the hearing. Associate controls the entire case. I wish he was more accessible, work with the client to keep administrative, repeating cost down. He is completely dependent on his office stuff. Periodically, he needs to check with client. I had bad experience with his staff who used the power not to talk to him nor even continue the case. If she was not there, I am sure he would have represented me. I still regret the working opportunity with him. I would be happy if he works with me on pro-bono basis. I still feel blessed to have him as my attorney who is an honest, knowledgeable, kind attorney. I would highly recommend him. If I have the ability to retain him, I would have done it. I would have been appreciative of him if he could have taylored the case and keep the cost down based on individual's needs,

Execelent Lawyer to protect the Children
I had a very difficlut case with my Ex making lots of accusations that took time and effort to work through the court system to clear my name and regain custody of my son. Hector was very strong in working the process and keeping me informed throughout the very painful process. He never drifted off the case over the five years of battles and was very clear upfront to me as to what was ahead with each step. In the end we prevailed, and I now have full custody of my Son.

Inefficient handling of my divorce case.
The attorney and his associate were friendly and assuring but I learned the hard way that they were not as experienced as I expected and as they claimed to be. In the earlier court hearings, the attorney did not put in adequate effort to present my case in order to effectively deal with the opposing party. My case could have settled sooner instead of it being drawn out for over 2 years. I know that if there was a more experienced associate working on my case, there would have been better overview and anticipation of particular problems. Many things were unnecessarily done and too much time was spent over the briefs and other paper work, rewriting several times and reviewing them to make them "perfect" thus experience was gained by the associate at my expense. Also the exorbitant legal fees I paid did not get me the quality of advocacy as expected. The office support charges were very high too which I believe is due to a complex and sophisticated office system and a large staff.
