Mr. Hernández represents individuals throughout Southern California on a variety of criminal charges including but not limited to allegations of domestic violence, driving under the influence, assaults, drug offenses, and theft offenses. Attorney Hernández is an excellent negotiator and works diligently to attain the best possible outcome for his clients. Nevertheless, Attorney Hernández understands that in order to have any leverage in plea bargaining negotiations, he must be prepared to take his cases to trial. Working closely with his team that includes a seasoned private investigator, Attorney Hernández has had a tremendous amount of success in getting charges reduced or outright dismissed before incurring the expense of trial.
In his immigration practice, Attorney Hernández has developed a staff that includes Attorney Elizabeth Argueta, J.D. (she will be sitting for the California Bar Examination in February of 2014) who currently serves as the firm's research attorney. Attorney Hernández has two Paralegals, Zulma Acevedo and David A. Hernández, who provide him with excellent support in the preparation of his cases under his complete supervision and direction. The Firm is pleased to have Attorney Carolina Gomez as an of Counsel. Ms. Gomez makes special appearances on behalf of Mr. Hernández when scheduling conflicts arise.
Attorney Hernández welcomes the challenges of complicated cases that have been turned down by other attorneys. Through his thorough and complete evaluation of each case, he will provide you with the information and advice that you need to make an informed decision on your case.
