Attorney Cortez was caring, professional, affordable, well informed, and quick to respond to any of my questions by email and phone. He was well prepared and solved my case in a timely manner.

Genaro, worked on a serious case for me involving assault with bodily injury. He was very professional and easy to work with. He was extremely prepared and the case was dismissed! It was easy to see he handled everything like a true professional both inside and outside the court room and his pricing was very reasonable! I’ll definitely use him again, but hopefully will not have to.
