From the moment I spoke to Mr. Fernandez on the phone was struck with a feeling of confidence and... ease. I knew I could trust him and be reassured that I would be in good hands . I was facing some serious charges. Charges which would have completely destroyed my life irrevocably, however, the team at Mr. Fernadez's law firm took the reins and upon recognizing that I was undeserving of those charges brought against me, worked diligently and tirelessly on my behalf and reached an agreement with the state which even I found to be a fair and painless resolution to the matter. All of this cost me far far less than what many other law firms had quoted without even first listening to my point of view on the events.I strongly recommend if you ever find yourself in need of legal representation. Thank you Austin, Dana, and Mr. Fernandez!read more

My experience with Daniel Fernandez and his team was nothing short of spectacular!!! If I could... give 10 stars I would. He was always there to answer any questions at all hours. They were quick to act and get my case dismissed. It’s nice to have some on my side fighting for me. I would recommend Daniel Fernandez to anyone needing counsel. Thank you so much!read more
