Robert Hernandez is an attorney in Norton & Melnik’s Los Angeles office. With wide experience in both coverage litigation and civil defense, he is able to represent clients from the beginning of a claim all the way to the end, even through an appeal, if necessary.
Robert came to the legal field as a second profession, following a 13-year career as a software engineer. Based on his training and experience, he views legal problems the same way he used to consider engineering challenges: as problems to be solved. And he brings the same creativity, clarity of thinking, and enthusiasm to solving legal problems that he formerly applied to technical ones.
When not at work, Robert is usually reading, golfing, or chasing his two high-school-aged children around from one event to another.
