Christine Hernandez
  • Owner, 2008






A 1990 graduate from Troy University; graduate from South AL University with a degree in education. I worked n education from 1990 to 2002 and was the first Nationally Board Certified Educator in my field in AL. In 2006 I graduated from Law School and passed the Bar in early 2007. With my Juris Doctorate from Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, I opened my own law practice in 2008. The Hernandez and Associates Law Firm located at the Mid-Towne Works Building at the Loop offers in-person, Zoom, teleconferencing, Face Time and Skype for initial consultations and client meetings. We have a full staff working collectively on your cases. I personally understand how difficult, stressful, and even frightening the legal system can be, particularly if this is your first encounter with the legal system. This firm is built on the success and reputation of our legal team.
