WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I would strongly recommend attorneys Hernandez and Smith. Both are true professionals, extremely competent, and a great asset to our community.
A firm that holds my mantra: persistence, compassion, competence. Two successful women who will care for their clients, colleagues, family and friends. The best!
Our lawyer was Christine Smith, who handled a partnership agreement for my agency, MerchantSide Marketing Group. I’ve had about 6 attorneys over last 10 years for various business and personal needs and Christine not only had one of the best “bedside manners” I’ve experienced (and she had to give some difficult-to-hear advice) but she was by far THE MOST detail oriented attorneys I’ve worked with.
