Attorney Martin J. Hernandez announces his new law firm. The new firm, at the same location, has the same dedicated paralegals, case managers and support staff and is completely dedicated to serving personal injury victims in the Tampa Bay Area.
Hernandez has been practicing law since 2001 and is one of the few attorneys in Florida to have tried over 100 jury trials. With a focus on auto accidents and other negligence claims, his career started by joining the Office of State Attorney for the Thirteenth Judicial District in Hillsborough County as an Assistant State Attorney. He was then promoted to the position of lead trial attorney in the narcotics division and tried numerous high-profile, complicated cases. He went into private practice in 2004 to further help those in need and after an 18-year successful partnership, Martin decided to pursue a practice in helping victims.
“The only thing that has changed is the name, phone number and now we completely focus on personal injury law,” said Hernandez. “I have been able to retain all of my experienced and compassionate staff and will be able to make this transition seamlessly.”
In addition, he is currently an Eagle member of the Florida Justice Association, regarded as the premier trial lawyer organization for the State of Florida; Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association; Latin Chamber of Commerce, Ybor City Rotary Club; Trustee for Boys and Girls Club; Knights of Sant’Yago; and involved in the Boy Scouts of America (Eagle Scout, former Cubmaster, and currently an Assistant Scoutmaster).
