Mr Cortez took over a trafficking of Marijuana case for me I was facing numerous amounts of years in prison. He was completely on top of his game he kept in touch through the process and was willing to fight for me when everyone else was telling me I was going do time no matter what. He was extremely knowledgeable and very curious he gave me hope when there was none to be had he was a gift from god. To make along story short I went from five years to one year to as of January 19 I was a completely free man . I had never been in any type trouble in my entire life I made one bad decision out of my life as a adult long story short if you feel as if you are helpless and are going to be put in a life changing charge in the court system I urge you please give this man a chance he will benefit you like know one else can. I give this attorney 5 stars the only bad choice you could have in life would be overlooking this attorney. God bless you Mr Cortez and for everyone else out there that needs help hire this man cause in the end all we have is choices so make the right one for once and hire this nan. Again thanks for sticking bye me when all else was lost god bless you and america…

Genaro worked on my case with professionalism, compassion, and clear intent; I always knew where I stood. My final disposition got the most onerous charge dropped and deferred adjudication for the remaining charge, but without a lot of the restrictions that normally come with a plea deal of this kind. Though I could have successfully gone to trial, Genaro gave me clear alternatives that got rid of my legal issues without any pain and harm to me professionally and reputationally.
