Katherine Hernandez

Associate Attorney

  Houston, Texas
As a child, Katherine has always been eager to practice law and grew up to do just that. Once a laser-focused student driven by the ability to be able to help others and now reaping the benefits of her hard work, Katherine hit the ground running in the legal world and looks forward to continued growth in business and construction law where many of her loved ones have voiced their own troubles. This was a motivating factor in getting into the construction world and has since turned into more of a passion.

Why Statement

“I understood at a very young age the struggles that come with navigating the legal system, particularly in the Latino community. It can be intimidating to seek legal help and I only want to be an advocate for those that feel they have no voice when confronted with injustice.”
