Hernando was born and raised in Miami, FL. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (Summa Cum Laude) at Florida International University and a Juris Doctor degree from St. Thomas University School of Law.

After being admitted to the Florida Bar in 2003, Hernando began practicing law at a prominent defense law firm, representing various insurance companies, corporations, and government entities. Having realized the disadvantages for injury victims when presenting claims against the more powerful corporate entities, he developed a desire to help only claimants and plaintiffs in personal injury cases and insurance disputes.

Currently, he devotes 100% of his practice to civil litigation, focusing on personal injury cases such as vehicular negligence, wrongful death, product liability, and other incidents involving injuries, as well as insurance claims.

Hernando is an experienced trial lawyer and has secured several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. He speaks Spanish and Portuguese fluently.
