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.

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.
