When choosing someone to take care of your business law needs, choose the best — choose Alex R. Hernandez Jr.

Business and Commercial Law and Litigation Attorney

When faced with a legal challenge, your attorneys should help you identify your goals at the beginning of the process. Thereafter, every action that follows must be undertaken with the aim of meeting those goals. Wasted effort equals wasted time and money, that’s something you cannot afford and your attorneys must respect this concept. At Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC, we counsel our clients to confront their legal challenges aggressively, but with purpose.

As a former Economist and Institutional Representative for a major mutual fund company, clerk for a Real Estate development and architecture firm handling zone development and platting, former Mutual of New York insurance agent, Mr. Hernandez has the experience in many aspects of business and law legal issues.

Alex R. Hernandez Jr. attorney at law has a history of success representing Texas business in Texas courts. State court cases are generally filed in the District or County Courts of the county the lawsuit takes places such as local courts in Corpus Christi Texas, while federal cases are filed in the United States District Courts for the Southern, Western or Eastern District of Texas or the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans Louisiana.

Your business deserves the protection of competent legal counsel, whether that is general legal counsel or litigation counsel. Having an attorney you can call and actually reach on the phone is not a luxury, it’s a necessity in today’s litigious business climate. And it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to have ready access to high quality legal services. Alex R. Hernandez Jr. can provide your business with a full range of legal services and it can do so affordably.

Alex R. Hernandez Jr. attorney at law has actual hands-on experience working in fields including accounting, manufacturing, aviation and construction. He has litigated cases ranging from IT to complex engineering projects. He is as comfortable representing you in the boardroom as the courtroom. Attorney Alex R. Hernandez Jr. is a highly skilled litigator and negotiator.

Litigation can be an expensive and time consuming diversion from achieving your business objectives. You should implement litigation avoidance measures which often begins with ensuring you have well-drafted contracts. So many of the legal disputes we see arise from poorly drafted contracts or from a client failing to appreciate the impact of seemingly innocuous language to defending a limited liability company and individual liability exposure.

Let our experienced attorney put you in control of your legal challenges so you can get back to running your business.

If you would like to get started with your 15-minute legal strategy session with our business law firm, or if you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding our practice, reach out to us today. We would be glad to speak with you. Our first call is free to help get to understand your business, probate, real estate, or insurance issues.

John Sopuch 

John A. Sopuch III is a trial lawyer with a history of winning some of the nation’s biggest verdicts. He joins Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC Of Counsel in the business litigation and probate department.

In 2002, the National Law Journal recognized John’s nearly $43 million verdict (in Miami Cigar v. UST, et al., a business fraud case) as among the top 100 verdicts in the nation that year. In 2004, John did it again, with his $30 million verdict in a breach of contract case, Basic Capital Management Inc. v. Dynex Commercial, Inc.

Hailing from St. Louis, MO, John was born on March 21, 1965. Attending prep school at The St. Louis Priory, he went on to study at the University of Texas where he graduated in 1987. John received his law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law in 1990. During law school, John was a member of the Law Review, a Dean’s Merit Scholar and he was selected to write for The Law Review’s California Supreme Court Survey. Also, John clerked for J.P. Vukasin, Jr., who was at the time, a federal district court judge in Northern District of California, sitting in San Francisco.

Upon graduating from law school, John joined a boutique litigation firm of Bickel & Brewer, working at the firm’s Chicago offices. John remained at Bickel & Brewer until 1997, becoming, at the time, the youngest person to make partner at the firm.

John left Bickel & Brewer in 1997 and started his own firm – Sopuch Annett Higgins & Gaubert – with offices in Chicago and Dallas. With growth of their practice/practice areas, in 2002 John and his partners opened an affiliated office, Moore & Sopuch, in St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands, USVI.

In 1999 and again in 2001, John was appointed by Governor Charles W. Turbull of the USVI to be a Special Assistant Attorney General to aid the government of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue in several substantial pieces of litigation and favorably settled those matters for more than $10 million collectively.

In 2005, John left the firm he had been instrumental in founding, and became Of Counsel to the Honolulu firm of Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher. During his time in Hawaii, John represented the widow of a man who had died with serious liver failure and was able to secure one of the highest settlements in a wrongful death case in the State of Hawaii.

Recently, John moved back to his hometown of Corpus Christi (grandparents were originally from this area) and joined Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC, where his trial lawyering skills and list of verdicts for his clients add to the depth of talent at ARH LAW. John’s practice areas are focused on business litigation and other forms of commercial dispute resolution.
