Genaro R. Cortez did an awesome job. He got me the results I was hoping for and I am very grateful.

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.

Genaro ,iso un muy buen travajo en mi caso es muy profecional, gracias por todo.

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.
