Alex R. Hernandez Jr.

Mr. Alex R. Hernandez Jr. was born in Port Lavaca, Texas and has lived most of his life knowing he would become a lawyer. The son of a Mexican immigrant, Alex R. Hernandez Jr. has lived in many places throughout his life because of his family and the good fortune and nurturing his parents provided for him. As a toddler he lived in Houston while his father went to the University of Houston undergraduate. Then off to Chicago where his father went to Northwestern University School of Law often heading to the law library to spend time with his father while studying. Then when Mr. Hernandez  moved  back to Houston for his father’s work in oil and gas and contract law with companies such as Zapata in Houston and then to ARAMCO which eventually moved the family to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Mr. Hernandez traveled worldwide during this time learning different international customs and practices. He has been around the world twice visiting Greece, Italy, Hong Kong, Hawaii, Singapore, London, New York, and Miami. He eventually returned to his hometown of Port Lavaca to be back with his family. He considers himself to be lucky as most of his travel was done while he could learn and enjoy the cultural aspects of the world and being able to bring culture and language to his practice. His global education has allowed him to excel in his law practice.

Having moved back to Port Lavaca, he began working at the age of 14, helping his grandfather with his appliance repair business and started his own lawn mowing and landscaping business with family and friends as clients. Then in 1989 Mr. Hernandez graduated from Calhoun High School in Port Lavaca and was National Honor Society Member, Student Council Member, Band President and Drum Major; he was named all honors and all state band for saxophone, guitar and bass  throughout all four years of his high school being named to Honors Band (the Senior Band) his freshman year, a first for the high school.
