My Philosophy

“I'm your defense lawyer; I’m here for you, and I’ll be there with you.” I make sure every client leaves my office with this knowledge. My clients often come to me at their lowest, and then trust me to advise them on decisions concerning their future and freedom. For this reason it is important for my clients to know that when they hire me, they get me. Day or night, weekends and holidays, I make myself available – not just to answer questions, but to alleviate the stress and anxiety that come with facing criminal charges. For me, the practice of law is not about cases – it’s about people.


Recent Testimonial

My attorney was not responsive and had to be prodded to answer emails and phone calls.  I was immediately envious of my friend who retained Michael Hernandez. Whenever my friend called Michael he was there, if he did not answer the phone, he called back within the next couple of hours.  In fact, I made the change and retained Michael Hernandez — and the change was night and day from the previous attorney.  He was there informing me of the latest developments, and responding to my calls.
