Cam Cornish

I’ve always had a strong sense of fairness and justice, which is why I went to work for the Public Defender’s Office. I saw a system where the powerless are crushed by a callous uncaring government. So I set myself to the task of zealously advocating for hundreds of clients and defending their rights. I did that from arrest, to arraignment, all the way through to trial. It’s where I honed the art of litigation and trial work.

While defending the rights of the society’s most marginalized people, I learned that a great trial lawyer who cares for his client, knows the law, and has the courage to stand up to the government can vindicate his clients and triumph over a powerful foe.

I do what I do to empower the powerless against the powerful.

PRACTICE AREAS

I practice in the areas of Criminal Defense, Personal Injury, and Civil Rights Violations. They all involve a common thread: fighting against a larger and supposedly more powerful adversary. That can be the government accusing you of a crime, an insurance company wrongly refusing to pay you, or police officers who abused you or your family. I practice law to help those in need even the odds against the powerful.

Being arrested can change your life forever. With the right criminal defense attorneys on your side it does not have to. At Cornish Hernandez & Gonzalez each of our lawyers got their start in the practice of law by practicing exclusively criminal defense. We understand every step of the process in a criminal case from the client’s side.

We handle criminal cases of all types and have successfully defended criminal cases in front of juries against charges ranging from misdemeanors to murder. To find out more click here.

If you’ve been injured in an accident through the fault of another you are entitled to have the side that caused your injuries make you whole by paying you for your injuries. You may be entitled to money for pain and suffering, loss of consortium, medical bills, future medical care, among many other things.

We take pride in helping you get your life back on track by holding those who caused your injuries responsible. To find out more click here.

Sometimes the police over-react or even intentionally abuse people. When they do innocent people get hurt or even killed. If you or a family member has been abused by law enforcement you are entitled to have the municipality in charge of the department pay for any injury it caused.

We always look forward to the opportunity to balance the scales and help you fight the uphill battle against the government to get the justice you deserve. To find out more click here.
