David J. Hernandez & Associates


David J. Hernandez Esq., the owner of David J. Hernandez & Associates—the 11th largest minority-owned law firm in New York State—has been practicing law since 1987. A former President of the Puerto Rican Bar Association, he was awarded the prestigious title of Super Lawyer in 2007, and was recently made a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an organization for trial lawyers who have achieved a trial verdict, award, or settlement in the amount of One Million Dollars or more.

David J. Hernandez’s prize-winning leadership has brought his firm to the forefront of the legal community, and to date, it has won tens of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, including: settling a wrongful death case for $10 million in a structured payout; a $2.4 million verdict against a municipality for negligent maintenance of a traffic control device; and a $330,000 settlement against a landlord after a tenant’s pit bull attacked his client. Where other firms balk at a difficult legal concept or challenging litigation, Mr. Hernandez seizes on the opportunity. The results speak for themselves.

David J. Hernandez wins cases because he believes in his clients and the nobility of fighting for the “little guy”, with no thought to the risk involved. He isn’t afraid of the big landlords, huge municipalities, insurance companies, or mega-corporations which prey upon individuals, having seen firsthand how powerful entities can leave people physically injured, financially insolvent, and homeless. David advocates on his client’s behalf to get money from the company responsible for their injuries, no matter who he’s going up against.
