Family law is all we do. And we've been doing it for a long time.

Serving Travis and Williamson counties.

We have the experience that can
make a difference in the success of your case

Divorce

When people get married, they have no intention of dissolving that marriage later. However, things can change over time and the marriage can break down for one reason or another.

Child Custody
and Visitation

Mothers and fathers can have strong and differing opinions about what is in the best interest of their children. As the children mature, their needs may change.

Division of
Property

Dividing up belongings and responsibilities can be emotional, difficult, and extremely stressful. The law is designed to make things as fair and straightforward as possible so that both parties walk away from the marriage with what they should.

We work hard to deliver a high quality service.
Our aim is your complete satisfaction.

Rachel is an outstanding attorney! Her calm demeanor and vast knowledge of the legal system helped me to get through a very difficult divorce without losing my sanity. Rachel knows the judges and how the courts work. I was well prepared for all the legal matters that arose during the divorce process. I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone in need of a knowledgeable, competent attorney.

Pflugerville, Legal Issue: Divorce

I just finalized my divorce after a long laborious process. I chose to work with Rachel Hernandez and she more than proved her value as my counsel. From our initial interview, I knew she was the right choice as she was more familiar with an invisible disability that I have than my wife of 18 years. She helped put together a hybrid custody agreement so I have a good amount of time to see my 3 boys. She made herself available on issues that needed immediate attention. And she rolled with my quirks and helped me understand what transpired through the whole divorce process very well. I highly recommend Rachel Hernandez.

Even if your divorce is peaceful,
you need an attorney fighting for your interests.

We'd love to hear from you.

Every case is different. We start by listening to you and hearing your story. Asking a question does not require that you hire us.
