My 15-year-old brother, who I will withhold his name for privacy, was involved in a strong case, he was accused of murder and armed robbery, his was looking at 25 years to life in prison. As a family we were devastated but thanks to God and putting together the achievement that my brother was given a Bootcamp program in 7 months, currently my brother is in the program that will only last 6 months and he will return home. Thanks to all your work team, mainly Carlos and Natasha, may God bless you and may you continue helping many people, happy to have Armando as a family lawyer.

      Mr. Hernandez was great and his office just as good. From the get go they took charge and all our stress was handed to them to take care of. They removed 5 driving citations, no points, no fines, nothing. Case closed. He and his office know how to handle these cases. They give it there personal involvement from the start. I highly recommend the whole team. Thanks Again!
